Tucked away in a quiet corner of Macau is Pousada De Sao Tiago, originally built in the 17th century as a fortress called 'Fortaleza de Barra' built by the Portugese to defend Macau against European nations and the local pirates, it is now a boutique hotel and houses some great dining destinations.
Cascata bar is where the afternoon tea is held, and is a small cosy area that is all crystal lights and plush sofas.
Unfortunately there was some mix up with the booking and our booking was somehow lost - there was plenty of seating outside, but it was too hot and humid to sit outside, so we ended up having to wait for a spare table inside. Not quite the service I had in mind...
I was also surprised that they used Twinings tea bags in the tea pot!
Assortment of sandwiches
Chicken pie, Portuguese tarts, scones and cakes
Sao Tiago deluxe tea set
This was the set for 1 person, so pretty much a bargain afternoon tea at $118 MOP! (around $14 AUD during the time I went)
They also had a wide variety of tapas which sounded pretty good as well.
