This is quaint Macanese Restaurant in the Middle of Taipa Village. Food is average and not great. Price is approx. US$20 a dish for lunch, not including drinks, appetizer or dessert; which would bring its cost to at least US$50 per person. What you are paying for is not for the food...what you are paying for is the ambiance and... More

My fiancee and I dined here for a late lunch after wandering around Taipa Village for the morning. We were a bit disappointed with the village, but not with the restaurants! The food here is Portuguese in style and inspiration. I had the fish steak, and it was simply but beautifully cooked and presented. My fiancee had the roast chicken,... More

I have been here a few times now and each time I enjoy it immensely. It's a very busy place still so bok or be prepared to wait or sit on a stool. The staff are onto it and the bosses will often order for you. The Sangria is spot on and the Tapas style dishes all good. This is... More

This was the most amazing and authentic restaurant. Food was tasty, hearty and generally unpretentious. Sharing recommended. Great value. Love the sangria.

Went late evening, food was good but not astounding, however it was well priced, so seemed fair! Would go back, but probably not for the roasted cod, the fillet steak though was excellent, and the garlic prawns were very tasty.

Some dishes were a hit - prawns starter and clams were great. The roasted cod fish main was a total disappointment. The texture of the fish was rubbery and dry. The next table seemed to have done better with lamb chops and grilled chicken with chips. Not great for ambience - be prepared for loud conversations all around . Tables... More

If you're staying in one of the hotels on Taipa Island, this gem of a restaurant is about 15 - 20 minutes' walk from the Venetian. It seats around 50 people and you absolutely have to book in advance the evenings. We called 48 hours in advance and got the last remaining 6.30 pm slot which we seized. The place... More
