Cozinha Pinocchio is a Portuguese-based restaurant located in the heart of Taipa Village. Open since the the 70s, Pinocchio was one of the few Western joints in town offering an European menu. With time passing, other similar restaurants started popping all over the city–especially this area as well–also offering Portuguese-inspired dishes and Macanese ones. Both locals and tourists usually prefer other places.
Cozinha Pinocchio signature dishes include curry crab and its barbecue dishes, made on charcoal grills, a feature remaining in very few restaurants in Macau. The restaurant is big, with lots of seating and different areas. The atmosphere is family-friendly, but has enough space for couples to have a romantic dinner if desired. Cozinha Pinocchio is close to a public parking lot and to many other venues, such as street food spots, cafés–Rooftop, Lamgo, Quarter Square, among others–and more.
Opening hours: daily, 12:00am–9:00pm
