It serves a lot of traditional portuguese food dishes. This place is crowded on weekends because this is where the locals get the food. It is located near mgm macau, and easy to grab a drink nearby later.

The food was fine although pricey. We ordered. The waitress forgot our drinks. She also brought one entree but not the other for another five minutes. I couldn't get anyone to take our dessert order. Finally, considering the cost you would think they would take a credit card, but no.

Cozy but that's just a nice way of saying small. HHHHHEEEEE HEEEE. Chanced by this place and no regrets. The African Chicken is just awesome! Super good. The other dishes that we ordered were good too but this is where you'd go for African Chicken. Great African Chicken experience!

Went there by following some reviews. However it was turn out to be a very disappointing dinning experience. The restaurant was very noisy and service was very bad. It was supposed to serve genuine Portugesee food but it was just something like some westernize stir and fry. Will never come back

Went there past 1pm and restaurant was still crowded. Ordered the highly recommended cod fish croquettes. Would loved to try the Portuguese chicken curry in Claypot but waitress advised that it will be too much for one person. Had to settle w pumpkin soup which turns out better than expected.

We haven't eaten here for ages but decided to eat here during our last trip to Macau prior to going to the cinema at the Galaxy. The food is still good and service fast. The wine is good and cheap too. Nice to eat good Portugese food at a reasonable price.

Well positioned in a fairly busy pedestrian street and pretty good feel due building / decor. Service is a bit hit and miss. Ordered a number of dishes for our group of 4 and some very pretty good (fish with potatoes) whilst others were pretty average. Not a bad choice for a quick lunch but not really blown away either...

1. Traditional Macau 1960's feel when eating inside the restaurant. 2. Food delicious and very Portuguese tasting. 3. Restaurant full most of the time. 4. At the beginning of Cunha street, easy to find. 5. Not spacious, feels abit crampy. 6. Staircase bit steep for some people if you wanna eat on the upper floor.
