8 Rua Caetano,
This lively, open-air, pavilion restaurant is on the tiny main square of Colôane Village, dominated by the charming Chapel of St. Francis Xavier. Its popularity with the locals on weekends and holidays lends it a festive, community-affair atmosphere; it's a great place for relaxing and people-watching. The food, which combines Chinese, Macanese, and Portuguese styles of cooking and ingredients, is in a category all its own, with many unique dishes not available anywhere else. Try the salt-and-pepper prawns, baked chicken in a fresh coconut, grilled prawns with curry, or the barbecued spring chicken, accompanied by Portuguese wine or fresh fruit juice. This is a good place to rub elbows with the natives, and when the weather is perfect, there's no finer place in Macau.
