“nice atmosphere, just do not go for the food....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Local and convenient located just oposite the road from the Epic Sana hotel, nice mix of guests but the food.... grilled fish turned out to be a soft and greasy fried thing, rather tasteless and not at all served in an appetizing way. Looked through the winelist, the first they did not have, they recommended another one which was fine. We wanted an extra bottle,but they just had one so gave us another type, extremely corked.
On previous visit the bean soup has been ok, but will not return. There are plenty of nice local restaurants, this one will not be on my go there again list....

“Friendly cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Just across the road from the Epic Sana hotel and less than two minutes from the Skyna Hotel this friendly cafe is perfect from escaping the clinical atmosphere and high prices of the hotels. Popular with friendly locals and expats it serves local dishes and international staples such as steak, egg and chips. Portions are decent and for Angola the prices are reasonable. On my last visit the power went out for over 30 minutes but the service was uninterrupted. I'll be back.

“A great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

A great restaurant for drinks & quick simple food. The outside pavement atmosphere is robust but authentic with visitors and locals enjoying themselves.

“My favorite place in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

authentic food, a geniune experience inspired by the Angolan culture, and very friendly staff. Carlos, the waiter always makes sure that I am satisfied and that everything is up to my expectations. I dine here almost everyday when I am in Luanda.
