“good staff and delicious sausage”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

I liked the portuguese sausage. I disliked the starter served, ciabatta and butter not for the taste. The taste was fine but I didnt order it and thought it was complimentary when it was served to me. Back home, starters come complimentary. I was suprised i was charged 40 % more than my expected bill because of the starter which i merely tasted. otherwise, the food and the staff were fine. maybe the management should stop serving starters not ordered by the customer as tourists come from different countries and may think these come complimentary as is the case in their own native country.

“A peaceful haven.”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

Macau was absolutely mad on my latest visit. Apparently the price of gold has fallen so every Mainlander and his Grandmother was spending up large. After descending from the Fortress via the back route to avoid the crowds we were looking for somewhere to eat and escape...
Boa Mesa is tiny but the service was friendly and the free bread fresh & tasty. My companion enjoyed her salmon & I had a tasty African Chicken, with a couple of beers. The serradura was also delicious.

“enjoy while it lasts”
Reviewed 2 May 2013

I have been to the "Boa Mesa", Macao (China), a few of times recently and have always enjoyed the food. Less than an hour ride by jetfoil from Hong Kong, this is a typical Portuguese restaurant right in the heart of old Macao. To find it you must ascend a narrow alley lined by other eateries, that leads to the picturesque Cathedral Square where ornamental fish spout water from a fountain. The location is therefore excellent, but do not expect the kind of luxurious and sometimes garish settings one finds today in some of Macao's casino restaurants. This is a simple medium-sized, L shaped room, accommodating some 20 tables, a large national flag, etc. all providing a genuine Portuguese atmospher. The latter is something that is fast disappearing from this historic ex-Porguese territory (founded in 1557 but returned to China, 14 years ago). Boa Mesa means "good table" in Portuguese and true to its name the food and service are excellent. In fact, one of the restaurant's two young Portuguese partners serves you personally, together with his Filipino staff.The appetizers with olives and warm crisp bread (authentic bread is now a rarity in Macao), the red house wine and strong coffee are as enjoyable as the menu, and the bill at the end is reasonable, certainly compared to Hong Kong. And if you plan carefully, after your meal you can catch one of those picturesque Roman Catholic religious processions that are unique to the old city.

“Cute place good food”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

Set in a beautiful lane way within the shadow of the iconic St Paul's church ruins and World Heritage centre, where better to put a Portuguese restaurant. This place has character and backs it up with tasty fresh food. Prices are pretty good given the tourist location and charming surrounds. A great place to drink some Sangria, eat well made food, relax and get away from the crowds.
