We were one of the first few that entered the restaurant for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Within 30 mins the restaurant was full. The wall was covered with souvenirs and banners from Portugal, with a drawing of a young, handsome man as a centrepiece of whom, I suspect, is the owner himself. We didn't eat much because we were still full from breakfast but still have had the famous roast suckling pig and a green salad. Both were yummy: the pig was not fatty, skin was crisp, salad was fresh and portion generous. We will certainly returning to the restaurant with a large group of people to sample more food.

It was almost full when we arrived at O Santos for dinner. 1 empty table left on the upper floor. It was busy, noisy and squeezy. We had the clams, roast pork and the chicken dish. We had high hopes for this place, but was left a little disappointed. It was alright for most of it, none of the dishes wowed us. Satisfactory but probably would try another Portuguese place if back in Macau.

Went following a recommendation from a friend from Singapore. The owner is always present, with a very nice public relations attitude. Service is very efficient and employees are very nice.
Food was excellent, on both occasions. We tried the cod dumplings and the portuguese sausage as starters, and had Grilled Cod - bacalhau à lagareiro - veal skewers, grilled shot ribs and the roasted suckling pig, which was fantastic. For dessert we tried the milk pudding and the - creme queimado -, both very tasty. Very cold portuguese beer and a very good selection of portuguese wines. We felt like visiting Portugal.

We really like O Santos as the food is really food. Our favourites are the roast pork & clams. Don't forget to try the passion fruit juice!

It's small, incredibly loud and filled with diners at every meal. I have never had a bad meal here and think the food is great. Service is friendly and if you're there at the right time of day or night you could find tables of local Portuguese dining out. Now, if it's good enough for them to call it 'local', it's certainly good enough for me.
