Top local chef Luis Carvalho moved operation from the smaller MD down the road to much larger and most central position in Maputo in December 2010.
Renamed Oporto in honour of that gastronomic citadel of Portuguese cuisine - it's a real triumph
Austere interior, clinical, the almost starkly white and blue decor is a little unsettling although the glacial aircon was very welcome the hot summer evening we visited
The menu is small and elegant with an emphasis on the BEST ingredients prepared fusing delicate French and Portuguese influences.
Top dishes for me were the souffle de camarao (prawn souffle) starter and the utterly indescribable "Tournedos Oporto" (Karan steak flambed in cognac and prawn).
He souces the beef from Swaziland and I have never tasted tenderer - cuts like butter and quite the most perfect taste.
Pricier than most in Maputo but well worth it - ideal for showing off to clients or taking a special date
