“Wonderful meal family style at a verry decent price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We stayed in Maputo for 2 weeks and tried several restaurants from the fanciest to the hotel restaurants..The best shellfish restaurant was Sagres..Wonderful service, unbelievably friendly waiters and waitresses delicious food..Tiger prawns and mixed seafood grilled is a must that needs to be tried..No fancy table cloths but authentic atmosphere with warmest staff and great food..We've been there 3 times in 15 days....

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

I have been going to this restaurant for about 10 years now, and not once was I unimpressed.
The food is cooked perfectly and the view is splendid! You can go to the beach if you wish to, and come back for your meal. Its cozy and worth visiting!

“Genuine Mozambican excellent food and ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Although a slow service, I think this is part of the mozambican way. A place for slow food. The restaurant is a very informal setting with almost natives as guests. The food was very good, tasty and original. The mozambican tiger prawns were very special and the best of all the "ameijoas" their clams. Price is good too. Not luxurious at all, but one of the best food in Maputo without doubt.

“Great seaside location for a good seafood restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

There's nothing nicer than eating good seafood at a restaurant right on the beach. Sagres in Maputo offers exactly this. Great location, good food and service.
