“Rude and food is average at best”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

Came upon a recommendation by friends and after arriving at 1:05 for a 1pm booking were told our table had been given away by a rude manager. Regardless we still waited and ate. Thought the beef was over salted even for Portuguese food, octopus rice was watery and under cooked and service was slow. Had far better at other places in Macau. Would not advise to visit

“Over-rated, and sneaky”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

Walked into this restaurant based on the tripadvisor sticker in the window. Service time was about right for the number of diners in the restaurant. We ordered Duck rice and the grilled sardines based on the chef's recommendation in the menu. The duck rice is NOT worth ordering. The sardines were nicely seasoned, and on the whole, quite tasty.
A bread plate which they set down on our table when we sat down was charged to our bill, even though we did not ask for it, and they did not indicate that it was not complimentary... if it weren't for this, I may have given the restaurant 3 stars. I don't like being charged for something I didn't order.

Reviewed 22 October 2013

I have been trying all the portugese resaurants in macau, and this one is very good. I had sardines they were fantastic.
The steps to the toliet are a bit dangourous but everything else is brilliant.

“Alright”
Reviewed 12 September 2013 via mobile

The beef steak was good. Duck rice and baked cod fish with potato weren't. Don't accept the bread as they charge for it.
