Antonio (an­to­niomacau.com) in Taipa vil­lage is an in­sti­tu­tion. Din­ner is a lively af­fair with the epony­mous chef wield­ing a large sabre open­ing bot­tles of cham­pagne, over live mu­sic and carafes of Por­tuguese red wine. + A Petisqueira (apetisqueira. com) is a laid-back al­ter­na­tive lo­cated in a lit­tle blue shop­house serv­ing up fa­vorites such as gar­lic clams and seafood rice. + Brunch lovers will want to hit up Fer­nando’s (fer­nando-restau­rant.com) in Coloane, which has been a pop­u­lar spot for decades for long, con­vivial days, or Tromba Rija (macau­tower.com.mo) at the Ma­cau Tower, which of­fers a gen­er­ous Por­tuguese buf­fet spread good for fam­i­lies on Sun­day af­ter­noons. + For creative mod­ern-Eu­ro­pean cui­sine, check out Root (root­macau.com) by lo­ca­vore chef An­thony Sousa Tam, who grows most of his veg­eta­bles with hy­dro­pon­ics.

Even the dessert at Root feels all nat­u­ral. Tromba Rija has a flow­ing buf­fet brunch. Antonio, a Por­tuguese in­sti­tu­tion.
