“Great location, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Wonderful location right on the beach with a great terrace and close to the centre of the city.. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The speciality is seafood, especially the famous prawns. But we also ate excellent clams and fresh whole crab.Most is simply cooked, steamed or grilled but when the seafood is so fresh, this is the best way. Portions are large and if you are not big eaters, it is worth sharing dishes. Prices are reasonable for a city like Maputo.

“SAGRES in MAPUTO”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We were staying in the hotel next door and wanted something different than hotel fool. Next door was SAGRES and we were PLEASANTLY surprised... VERY GOOD PRICES, GREAT portions, good priced 1/2 bottles of wine (Portuguese of course) and the service was EXCELLENT! Will be back since we're here for a few days. I highly recommend it. Friday night they had music too and it was great! Its noisy though just like restaurants in Portugal...

“Great setting, Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

A very pleasant owner run business, large, informal with a fantastic view, we had the clams which was delicious, and then settled for the seafood rice for two, which was more than enough, the flavors was OK, with a large selection of crab, prawn, fish and clams. The rice could have done with a bit more cooking to soak in the flavors. The service as tip top and as well as the wine selection.

“Sea food by the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

One of Maputo's old favorites. Really good sea food served in an aptly decorated restaurant on the shores of the Maputo sea.
