Guide Review - Fernando's Restaurant Macau
Fernando's has been cooking up delicious slices of Portuguese cuisine for well over fifteen years and it's know secret that this beach side barn is one of the best restaurants in South East Asia.
Where Fernando's excels is in it's laid-back style. The namesake owner, Fernando takes no reservations, you just have to turn up and have your name added to his magical list and wait to be called forward. Luckily the outside bar in the restaurants garden, makes the time slip by quicker with some of their excellent Sangria or delicious Chorizo.
The restaurant itself is also a low-key affair, inside a brick like barn building that spills onto Hac Sa beach. Those who come to Fernando's come for the food, which is excellent. Portuguese classics such as Suckling Pig, Codfish, Prawns and Mussels are all universally tasty. While the bread is baked in the restaurants own bakery and the vegetables grown in their own vegetable plot. An excellent value wine list, all Portuguese, only adds to the attraction.
If you are in Macau for more than a day, you simply owe it to yourself to make the journey out to Coloane Island and enjoy the Fernando family cooking.
