"O Manel" is a Portuguese Restaurant serving a home style food that has roots from Trancoso, a small town located in Beira Alta, a Northern Region of Portugal. Trancoso is the home town of the owner, Manuel Pena, who came to Macau in the 1980's and inaugurated "O Manel" in 1992.
Every morning, Manuel Pena goes to the local market to buy the freshest products and ingredients in order to cook the best dishes for his clients. The Menu of the Day is inspired during his walking through the market and seeing the products available on that day.
In "O Manel", all grilled foods are cooked in a charcoal grill following the tradition in Portugal. The codfish grilled in the charcoal, the grilled pork spare ribs, the grilled fish are only some of fantastic dishes that delights the clients. There are non-grilled dishes also very appreciated by the customers such as clams with lemon sauce, lobster soup, prawns in garlic. With a delicious sangria and a home made dessert to complement the meal, at "O Manel" you will sense a wonderful dining experience!
In case you are visiting Japan, "O Manel" is also available in four different themed Restaurants in Tokyo but all of them provide the same delicious and fantastic food. One of the Restaurants is called "Fado" in honor of Portuguese Traditional Music: customers actually listen to "Fado" in the Restaurant.
