“Lots of history inside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

This old train station still captures all the emotions when you get inside. considered by Forbes as one of 10 most beautiful train stations in the world, I guess. The architecture is great, and they still have 2 old trains on display. Some nights, a small bar have good live music programs.

“Worth a visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Its an old train station - theres not much to do. But one can walk around looking at the locomotives and shop at some of the curio shops. There's also the Jazz Cafe that serves a decent lunch.

“The most beautiful place in Maputo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Maputo is an expensive and poor city without many attractions, but this Train Station is special: it's a beautiful building and there's a small restaurant inside. Although the food isn't that great, it's a good escape from the buzz in the city. Worth the visit.

“Stunning Building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Not much to do here, but it is worth a visit. You can also catch the hop on/hop off Maputo ride here.

“Not a place to eat”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Nice place to have some drinks, but not really suited to serve meals.
Very poor choices and not very tasty.
