Where to eat in Macau? Are you planning a trip to Macau and looking for some kid-friendly and family-friendly restaurants? Little Steps have munched and snacked our way around Macau to find the best restaurants that cater to families with kids of all ages.
A classic spot for lunch or dinner, serving up affordable Portuguese delights in an old-world setting. There are over 70 dishes to choose from, so even the pickiest eater will have plenty of options. This restaurant serves lovely fish dishes and finger licking shellfish mains. The 'Serradura' is a dessert that you simply must try. It is a milk and cream pudding with crumbled biscuits on top, a dessert that would make any child smile from ear to ear. It’s the perfect stop for food after a visit to the Temple of A-Ma. Reservations recommended.
A Lorcha, 289 Rua Do Almirante Serigo, Macau, +853 2831 3193, website.
A family-friendly restaurant to enjoy traditional home-style Portuguese food with two locations in Macau. The portions are large and super fresh, an excellent venue for big groups and big families that have big appetites. The first restaurant was started in Old Taipa Village in 1987, so it does have this charming nostalgic feeling to it. If you prefer a more modern setting, look to head over to the new one at Avenida Sir Anders.
Dom Galo, Avenida Sir Anders Ljungstedt R/C, Edificio Vista Magnfica, Macau, +853 2875 1383. / Dom Galo Taipa, 47 Rua Cunha, Taipa Village, Macau, +852 2882 7318. Website.
A trip to Macau is never complete without grabbing a bite to eat at Fernando's. Lucky for mom and dad, there is plenty of outdoor space for the kids to run around in while you enjoy a fresh Sangria. Take a cruise on the Hac Sa beach next door, or hit the playground across the street with the children. This restaurant does not take reservations, keep that in mind when catching the ferry. Last orders are at 9.30 pm, and we recommend the African chicken!
Fernando's Restaurant, 9 Praia de Hac Sa, Macau, China, +853 882264, Website.
Over twenty years in operation and a favorite Italian restaurant for local families. The enormous outdoor terrace overlooks the quiet Cheoc Van Beach and is next door to a fantastic public swimming pool. La Gondola is a great place to fuel up with an authentic Italian slice of pizza after a long swim with the kids.

A trip to Macau without a Portuguese influenced egg tart? Sacrilege! No one should leave Macau without trying these sweet delights. For the very best, visit the original Lord Stow’s Bakery, where the now-world-famous Portuguese-style egg tart was born. Absolutely delicious! And if you are traveling from Hong Kong, the two are very different. A perfect opportunity for the kids to compare and contrast. A kid favorite for sure!
