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.

This is a tiny place that offers authentic Macanese food and plenty of it. Also a great value. Food was cooked to order and out of this world good.

Local fusion eatery with a mixed bag of cuisine from Portuguese to local. Not much to look at inside but surprisingly tasty. Tends to get very busy so be prepared to wait for a seat.
