“South African restaurant doing "Italian" food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

Mimmos is full most evenings as the food is good, and the servings, in South African tradition, are very large. It's a very popular spot for Mozambicans and expats and often has big groups taking up large areas of the restaurant. The beer is often flowing here late into the night. If you want something special, this is not the place, but it is certainly consistent.
You will often see large cues at the take away section on Tuesday nights because of their take away special, 2 pizzas for the price of 1.

“average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

It´s food! Sometimes nicer & most of the times average.
It´s not high cuisine but if your hungry and want to eat for a reasonable price its a go to place.
The city has three mundo´s, the original at 24 de Julho, one at the Vlademir Lenine street and on at Maputo Shopping, in my opinion just do take out and eat it at home or call them, you´ll be better off.

“Excellent Pizzas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

If you want good pizzas and want to experience a vibrant Maputo atmosphere, Mimmos is the place to be. The only downside provided is that it takes while to get your pizza ready and some clients tend to be noisy.
