The Hong Kong Card allows you to enjoy the city's best restaurants without having to dig too deep in your pockets...
Antonio Coelho, one of Macau's best known chefs, is the mind and spirit behind this fantastic restaurant, where authentic and scrumptious Portuguese food is served in a pleasant environment.
Positioned in a nicely refurbished Taipa old house, it features a warm and cozy Portuguese décor with traditional blue-and-white tiles, soft hues, dark wood and crisp white tablecloths... It's not a particularly big restaurant, so the ambience is quite homey, and so is the service.
Starters are a big draw at Antonio's restaurant: Ameijoas à Bulhão Pato (Sautéed Clams with Garlic, Coriander, Olive Oil and White Wine), Chouriço caseiro assado na canoa (Roasted homemade Portuguese sausage) and Gratinated Goat Cheese with Olive Oil and Honey Served in Toast Bread, Lettuce and Balsamic Vinegar are all very tasty, and so are the Portuguese cheeses and the cold meats.

Guided day tours are a very nice way to explore this unique and beautiful metropolis...
Recommended mains include Fish of the day stew in a Portuguese copper-pan with steamed potatoes in a creamy sauce with mushrooms and black pepper, as well as the well-known Bacalhau com natas (Dried Codfish baked in the oven with creamy sauce and cheese) and "Portuguese" Style Tenderloin Steak, Fried with Garlic and White Wine and Served with Portuguese Smoked Ham, Fried Egg, Potatoes and Pickles.
Desserts are not disappointing either, with Portuguese Rice Pudding, Serradura, Chocolate Mousse, Crepes Suzette and similar treats...
