We recently had lunch at Henri's Galley during a weekend stay in Macau and enjoyed another serving of the famous African Chicken and Pastéis de bacalhau. The bacalhau (cod fish balls) is pretty good. The fish is fresh and mixed well, outer layer is fried well and not oily, served with a bit of greens and two olives. Pricey at... More

I specifically went here for the African Chicken which was lauded as the best in Macau. If this is the best then I don't want to taste any more. This is so-so grilled chicken covered in under-seasoned tomato sauce. Certainly the sauce had loads of garlic but it had absolutely no depth of flavor. Given the TA photos and comments... More

The restaurant is small and tables are close to each other. The head waiter insisted we sit near a noisy table or near the kitchen even though the restaurant was almost empty. The bread seems to be rationed. The spicy cocktail sausage appetizer while tasty were overpriced and the African chicken was ho hum lacking flavour and consisting mostly of... More

This reliable restaurant has been here for eons... on Dai Heng street overlooking "the lake". The setting is simple and the food good. My Faldo verse was excellent as was my quail. The ribs looked yummy too! The saladura dessert was delicious! The wine selection was good and we certainly enjoyed our vinho verde!

A local Portuguese treat. 3rd generation owner Raymond is on hand to serve icey homemade Sangria. Chorizo, clams, bacalhau, & Spanish omelette starters were yummy. Followed by a whole sea bass grilled Portuguese style & enough for 4 people with fresh sautéed potatoes & Mediterranean veggies , & a rib eye steak, with curry crab - all highly recommended. Finished... More

We arrived on time for our 8:30 dinner reservation. Greeted very promptly by owner who quickly proceeded to give us suggestions for our shared meal. Food was well presented and very flavorsome. However our experience was spoilt when it became clearly obvious that the staff wanted to close up around 9:45pm and so we were pressured to hurry and leave.... More

Nice location, old style place with staff wearing sailors uniforms. Food is ok but will not blow you away, tried the African chicken, tasty but not amazing. Clams were better. Only 1 red and 1 white wine by the glass available. Staff very friendly....

First time I was introduced to this place I came with a group of friends. The African chicken was so good but I had to stop myself from eating it all, as you do when you are with a big group. I couldn't stop thinking I would come back here on my own one day and polish off a whole... More

The speciality of this restaurant is obviously African Chicken. It is clearly original one and so delicious. I was really shocked when I ate it first time.
