Life seems nearly perfect when the weather is fine and you're dining with friends or family at this open-air pavilion restaurant on the picturesque main square of Colôane Village. Popular with local extended families, especially on weekends and holidays when lively chatter fills the air and children play in the square, it serves a combination of Chinese, Macanese, and Portuguese fare, including its own unique recipes. Seafood is the obvious first choice, with recommendations including salt-and-pepper prawns or crab or baked perch Portuguese style, but barbecued chicken in a fresh coconut, roast pig, and the menu's long list of other dishes should not be overlooked. Staff doesn't speak much English, and plastic tables and chairs are as fancy as this place gets, but this is a real slice of Macau life and the perfect antidote to sensory overload in Cotai.
