Located on Coloane Island's beautiful Hac-Sa beach, the restaurant is housed within a simple red bricks structure, surrounded by flourishing shrubs and vines. The decor is simple and nice, with bamboo furniture, red/white checked tablecloths and old-style ceiling fans. Upon entering the restaurant you will see walls filled with money bills, name cards from customers all over the world. Yes, there is no air-con and for us visiting in February, it wasn't a problem at all. There are huge ceiling fans at the main dining hall.
Here was what we ordered:
Entrecosto de Porco na Braza - Charcoal grilled pork ribs
Bacalao au Braz Style - The Portuguese have 1001 ways to cook bacalhau, but this is one of the best of their recipes. This definitely is a MUST TRY. It had shredded Bacalao with sliced onions, potatoes , tomatoes, scrambled eggs cooked in olive oil. It is usually garnished with black olives and sprinkled with fresh parsley. It is a very common dish in cafes and restaurants.
Macau style Fried Rice -- Macau's version of the Chinese fried rice. It had Bacalao slices, black olives and Portuguese chorizos.
What I liked most about the place: the cozy atmosphere -- it was relaxing as I enjoyed a jug of sangria and their hot bread rolls which was served while we waited for our dishes. All the dishes we ordered were outstanding. Highly recommended for those who enjoy family style dining. Restaurant is really popular so best get there before 12pm if you want to go for lunch. Don't miss the opportunity to go there.
