Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Not a review of the bar or the service, which were both fine. Always on the search for a properly poured Guinness, unfortunately, this was another disappointment. The Guinness was poured using 2 glasses. The first pour into both glasses was just done without tilting...the glass, just vertical, producing huge amounts of foam. That was left to settle, although once settled the glass was mostly foam and not much liquid. I thought this would be discarded, as it should have been, but was kept. What she did was scrape off the excess foam and then use a second glass to essentially repeat the procedure to accumulate enough liquid to add to the first glass to create one pint!! This is obviously Guinness sacrilege. The foam was not the thick velvety kind, but thin and tasteless, as was the rest of the pint. If you are charging 100 MOD for a pint, please make sure it's at least poured correctly. Advise you to stay clear of the Guinness.More

The Old Taipa Tavern (O.T.T.) is an Australian/New Zealand style gastropub which is rather popular with the English speaking ex-pat community who have made this their locale in the Taipa Village area. It has a fair amount of people most evenings and can be particularly...busy on weekends and holidays. They offer a standard list of wine, spirits and a long list of beers as well as an expected pub grub menu. You can find OTT along Rua Dos Negociantes near the famous Pal Tai Temple in the middle of village. They are open from 2.30pm to 1.30am on weekdays and 1pm to 1.30pm on weekends. It is much easier to get a table and service here around lunch time compared to later on evening when the place becomes busy.More

You'll go far and wide before u find a better all-round restaurant and bar that'll beat OTT. Dan and Irene open their hearts to all who venture in for a bite to eat or a few drinks. Fantastic menu with something there to satisfy any...apetite, and a staff that makes sure u have a fantastic experience in Macao. Also shows all the sports games including EPL. You'll never walk alone in OTT!More

I live in Macau and I feel too old for clubs so OTT is my go-to. OTT is a place where you can grab a few cold ones and chat and relax with friends, and it's also a place where you can go a little...crazy if you want to. The atmosphere is fairly relax and it's easy to meet people here. You see a mix of expats (with some locals) and tourists at this place. Their drinks are okay (I don't drink beer so I always get some sort of liquor with a mixer and they taste like drinks you get from a college bar in the states if you know what I mean) but they do the job. Sometimes it takes a while to get your order especially on a Saturday night as they tend to get quite busy. I had the occasions to have dinner there a couple times and their food was pretty good too. Staff was friendly and up for chats if they weren't too busy.More

For a westerner, one thing missing from Cotai and it’s casinos, is a authentic pub/ bar to relax in over a pint. This OTT is the cure. It’s perfectly placed in a quaint little corner of Taipa village, 5 minutes walk from the Galaxy. Great...beer and service.More

The Old Taipa Tavern has been around for over a decade. They are doing many things right. Great Beer, great drinks and great food. The food is actually quite good and not just bar bites. The meals are well made, fresh and tasty. Reasonably priced...as well. Lots of regulars mixed with expats makes for a fun time. I'd recommend this place for anyone interested in having a relaxing time out and meeting new and interesting people.More

Went here to watch the Rugby World Cup game and the atmosphere is great. The owner is a Kiwi and he had made a real effort which made it special. Big ex pat community so lots of good blokes to chat with, we ended up...staying all night.More

Quaint and charming location, pleasant clientele and vibe. Even for a pub in a prime location, the beer is very overpriced and don't expect any of your change if you order from a waitress. Worth a visit for one drink if you haven't been there....Otherwise avoid.More

Went here for a post match drink with a mate and the staff were amazing. Great pub feel and selection of beers. Dan the publican was a gentleman and lots of interesting conversation and sharing of stories. Would highly recommend as an essential, authentic watering...hole and a break from the endless mall vibe and luxury brand shops of Macau.More

Not a big selection of food. Food is tasty. Friendly staff. Nothing special. More a pub with simple food than a restaurant.

OTT is probably the most famous pub in Macau. Centrally located in Taipa old town it always attracts people, mostly locals. Because of the lack of competition the value for money is definitely not in line. Service can be good or lousy, a bit of...a gamble, any drink besides beer is a risk because one never knows how good it will be. The food, quality and taste not bad, but just pricey for such a setting. A great place for a cold beer but that's probably as good as it gets.More
