First I don't like will they charge you for butter and bread without asking. Not particularly good service and we were the only one eating at that time. We were not that trilled over the food. Try another place. We found the place stiff.

Portuguese food is as unspecial as it gets. Pay $50 for a meal to and receive a plate with 1/3 covered in boiled cabbage and carrot. I'm not joking. Boiled cabbage and carrot..no flavour..no cooking in an interesting manner....boiled cabbage and carrot. One Portuguese restautant - Taverna - is daring and original. The rest serve boiled cabbage.

This restaurant really ruined my night as I paid more than $50 worth of food to get a small plate of badly-cooked codfish. Disappointed to say the least.

The restaurant oozes elegance and class, the staff are attentive and professional and the owner of the restaurant is constantly interacting with the guests. The food was out of this world, I don't think I have ever had a steak that was so tender, it was melt in your mouth! The wine was excellent and the dessert was orgasmic! Yes... More

Went here twice as its close to my house but we find it extremely expensive and the quality not great. Once we had pasta, taste oh dear and the meat tasted like rubber. Second time we fish again not great. With so much good restaurants in Maputo go else where.

Top local chef Luis Carvalho moved operation from the smaller MD down the road to much larger and most central position in Maputo in December 2010. Renamed Oporto in honour of that gastronomic citadel of Portuguese cuisine - it's a real triumph Austere interior, clinical, the almost starkly white and blue decor is a little unsettling although the glacial aircon...
