We left it a bit late to book one of the popular restaurants on Trip Advisor for a Friday night, but Restaurant Carlos had a mention in the Michelin guide so we gave it a try. The rather unassuming exterior hides a fantastic value for money restaurant. We arrived a little early for our reservation, but the waiters went out... More

Stopped by Carlos for an early dinner recently and enjoyed other serving of the Arroz de Pato (duck rice), side of Chorizo and egg pudding. It was another good meal at this local eatery near the major hotels at Nam Van Lake. Duck rice was pretty much the same as our last meal here a few months back. Rice is... More

I do not intend to write a terrible review unless it is necessary. Today, I felt trying local Macanese Portuguese food and I went into this Carlos Restaurant. I visited this place several times before and the food was average. My impression was that the Filipino servers especially Mike were friendly and helpful. Other than that, the Chinese servers were...

Restaurante Carlos is a casual Portuguese restaurant on Rua Cidade de Braga, very near to MGM Macau on the Macau Peninsula. They have two seating periods each day, 12-3pm (lunch) and 6-11pm (dinner) daily. This is a good option if you want to try Portuguese or one of their Macanese dishes. Prices are a bit high but serving sizes are... More

Macau had many good Portuguese/macanese restaurants prior to the inundation of the gambling parlours and legion of restaurants but slowly as the number of good chefs subside the best restaurants are becoming more average. This is a complaint that my wife hears from many macanese friends who see their local losing their magic. Personally I am not surprised that the... More

Enjoyed sunday lunch with friends thoroughly. Good service with frequent change of plates. Dishes were recommended to us. Grilled sardines were cooked well and the sardines were big in size. Clams done with lemon and wine taste exquisite. Cod with crispy potatoes were tasty. Sangria at $200 could do with a bit more wine in them. However , it is... More

In this case a little bit more Asian than Portuguese... a way to experience another side of the Macanese cuisine with more Asian customers... More simple, still rich and simple food... always very nice service

Decided to go to this place upon arriving in Macau. Was not disappointed! Service was really friendly without being over-bearing. Good English spoken. Food was delicious - big portions also so you could get a main to share and something on the side. I had the baked fish which was really tasty and came with a lovely garlic and olive... More
