“Nice Atmospere Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We had a table of about 16 people and we pre-ordered the food. It was excellent and the servcie was fine. The restaurant is a little cramped and it was full at the time but it probably added to the festive atmosphere. I really enjoyed the food and we had an excellent evening. The prices were not that bad in terms of Maputo pricing. i think that their wine list could be improved - it is an iPad which was quite difficult to use and it was hard to find the wines. Another issue was that they ran out of vanilla ice cream which should be a standard offering. In any event really enjoyed the evening.

“Good portuguese food, nice restaurant in Maputo.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Great food, good options for pork dishes. I also had the bacalhau, very good. Portions are well served and envrionment is very nice, a little dark in the inside, good for a dinner. If going for lunch, the outside varanda is nicer. Also a wine bar and backery in the facilities. Expensive prices though.

“great portugese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

First night in Maputo we discovered this wonderful portugese restaurant..The atmosphere was warm and very authentic. Great selection of wines and excellent selection of food..Be careful not to fill yourself with the huge appetizer board they bring you..Choose a couple and save your appetite for the main course..Delicious bread too...

“New location is better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

The restaurant has recently moved and is now more spacious and up market. Great location near the Parque dos Continuadores. The food is Portuguese cuisine and very good. Although pricy it is worth it. Service and wine selection very good. Outdoor seating available if the weather is suitable.
