5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

One of the best restaurants in Maputo. Best for dinner. Near Maputo bay. Prefer sitting outside, if weather is OK.

“Great Meat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

If you are wanting steak or any type of meat, this is the place to go to. It is quite pricey, but if you are looking for a good piece of meat, then this is the place & its totally worth it!

“Best dessert in Maputo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

This restaurant is a little upmarket and special. We have dined here a number of times as a couple and in a group. We found the bacala and lobster to be dry and overcooked (maybe an off day for the chef). Most other dishes on the menu are good and especially the chocolate pudding! The restaurant does get a little noisy when it is full. The freshly squeezed pineapple juice cocktails are excellent.

“One of the best ....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Zambi is one of the top restaurants in Maputo

Owner George is a seasoned restauranteur and runs Zambi with true passion

Speciality is seafood and I highly recommend all prawn, langoustine and lobster dishes.

Sit back and enjoy
