Don Quijote is the place for Spanish food lovers in Macau.
Conveniently located between Taipa Village and Cotai's glitzy casino-hotels, it is nicely decked out in a somewhat Spanish style... Not too pretentious or snobby, just pleasant and relaxed.
The food is good and fairly authentic and the menu is dominated by an extensive selection of delicious tapas, alongside a choice of Paella dishes and Fideuà - which is a Valencian style paella, where noodles are used instead of rice...
Recommended starters include the platter of Spanish sheep and goat cheese, as well as a variety of Spanish ham and sausages. Rollitos de Salmon y Queso
(Salmon rolls & cheese), Rollitos de repollo con arroz (rice with bacon and nuts rolled in cabbage), Gambas al ajillo (fried shrimps with garlic) and Vieiras al horno (scallops in the oven) are also very popular...
Recommended main dishes include Paella a la Valenciana (Spanish style Seafood Rice with Meat), as well as Seafood paella with lobster (Marinera) and Paella Negra (black paella), with squid ink.
As expected, there is a good selection of wines and Sangarias... mostly Spanish
Prices are quite fair: A full ala-carte dinner is around MOP$ 100-200, while set lunch is a good value at MOP$ 55
Open daily for lunch and dinner
