When you’re in Macau (Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China), then Taipa should be on top of your priority list of places to discover. It will not be complete if you don’t get to meet “the guy.”
His name is António. Chef António Coelho. One of the most celebrated chefs who bring the most authentic Portuguese dishes for the locals, tourists and expats in Macau. This Michelin featured restaurante is named after the famous chef, too.
The ground floor has about 8-10 tables but they have more tables on the 2nd floor and an exclusive VIP area on the basement (for private events and functions). In total, it approximately has 30-40 tables in its new address at Rua dos Clerigos No. 7, Old Taipa Village, Taipa, Macau. An area famous for its European inspired alleyways (that means, narrow, ancient, stylish).
