3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2015 NEW via mobile

We live in Laguna and dine out 2-3 times a week but had never tried Mozambique, so we went there on a Sunday around 11am for breakfast. We had a very enthusiastic but untrained waiter who was always on damage control because we had to ask for everything. For example, I ordered Sausage and eggs over easy and that's what... More

This restaurant is about 2 blocks from the Surf and Sand which is why my group picked it as we were staying at the Surf and Sand. The restaurant is large, and our section (near the bar and dance floor) was extremely noisy. But by and large we are a group of 50 and 60 somethings, so we may not... More

I've been to this restaurant 4—5 times now, the last time was most recently on Mother's Day. Always delicious! Depending on the type of ambiance your looking for...a quiet dinner for 2, a dinner party for 8, a brunch with drinks on the roof...they have it all!! Worth the visit when you visit Laguna Beach!

From the outside you just aren't sure what you're getting into, however the rooftop terrace and the 2nd level dining area are AMAZING! The food was very good and the drinks were excellent. We stayed to hear the band playing on a TUESDAY night and had a wonderful time.

Took my wife and 2 kids here for the 1st time on Mothers Day. We requested the rooftop seating and were not disappointed. I would certainly request this when making a reservation. The view is awesome. The food is really good. It did take quite some time to receive our meals, but I will chalk that up to a busy... More

We have driven by Mozambique probably hundreds of times but only recently wised up and ate there. I wish we had done so much sooner!! In particular, the Piri Piri dishes are delicious! The chicken skewer appetizer, as well as the shrimp are awesome. I like them so much that I usually get the shrimp again for dinner. We have... More
