Went there for lunch with my three young kids. we had a very good dinner there some time ago... it is always very busy and crowded. Ordered octopus salad, chicken rice, clams, deep fried cod fish, etc... Waitress also suggested a very nice and dry white wine... Quality of food were great as usual. Breads were nice and warm. Kids loved the food as well. Overall experience was great! Mr. Santos also played with my kids... lovely person. this made us feel homey. Highly recommended! The only negative thing: this restaurant is pretty small... so pretty crowded and if u get there late, u may need to wait for a long time... so go early!

Mr. Santos is a nice fellow: he stops at every table to check if everyone is happy with their food (which is usually the case), smiles, chats a bit, a likes to take pictures with the guests so that he can post them on the restaurant's Facebook page.

All in all, I felt like I was in Lisbon again: the bacalhau was very good, and the portions were huge. My favorite was the pastel de bacalhau, which was nice and crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside. Plus, they even have a few choices of Sumol! Not that it's absolutely necessary, but I thought it was a nice touch.

Will definitely come back to say hello to Mr. Santos and to have another (hundred) pastéis de bacalhau next time I'm in Macau!

Feel at home because I could chat with Mr. Santos, the friendly owner in both native tongue of Portuguese. I was suggested by Mr. Santos the bacalhoada (cod fish) as most Brazilians ask, according to him. The variety of food is great. The restaurant is full of Portuguese soccer temas memorabilia. The access is easy. I recommend Mr Santos restaurant.

Encore to O Santos in my July trip to Macau. Still, the best Portuguesa restaurant for me.
Their efficient & food qualities are the best among others around.
A little comment on their white tablecloth under the red & white one. Is time to change the new one as they are disgusting when you are served to be seated but the lady are still cleaning up the table. If it is the case, you 'd better look away. Haha+
Reservation must be made & better requests downstairs as upstairs is very noisy when it's full.

The small tiny cafe is a must eat place. Packed to the brim and advanced reservations is highly recommended.
