Reserved a table for 8:30 (2nd session). Received a call from a Chinese staff at 8:25 and asked when we will arrive as there are wait in customers. Told him to hold the table we were on the way. He said could not. We arrived 15 mins later the restaurant was quite empty, no queue.

Food was good. Service by the Filipino was good. Food price very reasonable. MOP2, 350 for 10 pax dinner with a jar of Sangria, 2 soups, 2 x codfish, pork shoulder, seafood rice, 2 x sardines, clam, ox tail, veggie salad, 2 x side dish spinach, 2 x stir fried vegetables, cuttlefish, sausage.

Bread served hot and good.

Real good Portuguese food with good environment in a quiet old area.

Kids liked to play at the courtyard.

staffs are very friendly, food is amazing, atmosphere of retaurant and even around is great. I could enjoy more cuz of manager's drinks recommendation, wine and sangria. Everything was good combination! I have tried few portuguese retaurants in Macau, this is my favorite for sure. Must visit in Macau!

I did not find the food as fastastic as some previous reviews. The food was very greasy and taste was average. The lady who served us gave excellent service, though.

The place is in a beautiful courtyard with approximately 7 tables outside, and only 1 was occupied by someone eating there. We requested to eat lunch outside, as it was a fine day, and the courtyard was the main attraction, but we were told that you cannot eat outside, only have drinks, and even that closes at 3pm. We were told that the one person eating outside was waiting for the manager. So we ate inside. However on coming out, we saw the tables were full outside!! People were definitely eating there.

We asked the manager about this, and he said these people had booked, but it became full inside and so they were seated outside. However, the place was half empty inside, so I felt he was not telling us the truth. He started arguing with us!! Not a good experience. Maybe eating outside is only for his favourite customers, not ordinary tourists like us?

We enjoyed a lovely Portuguese Lunch. The barbecue squid was exquisite. Other dishes included Meccan Curry, roast pork and Portuguese desserts. The ambiance was authentically rustic. The service was excellent.

Festive decorations everywhere, with beautiful Christmas trees and lighting at the garden, Albergue 1601 is a heritage building, serving authentic Portuguese cuisine. You should look for John Keys, the Restaurant Manager. He will take care of you and gives you good recommendations. We will definitely come back again! Because of John, the delicious octopus salad and seafood rice.
