“Delicious food in a very well decorated restaurant on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

As the name indicates, the place is decorated in Moroccan style, but the food is very local, with possibly the best prawns I've ever eaten.
It's not the cheapest place around but it was still reasonable.

“Right on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

The ambiance and setting of this restaurant is splendid. You are right on the beach and can watch the dhows making their way to the harbor or join a local football match on the beach. Everybody is friendly and the service and food good. It is a good place for sun-downers and to relax at the end of the day. During our stay in Vilanculous we visited it often and will do so again if ever we return to Moz. I highly recommend it.

“Awesome venue!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Beautifully located bar and restaurant right on the beach in Vilanculos - definitely a must if you are in Vilanculos... Perfect for sundowners or a lovely meal. It has a super vibe and you can always refresh yourself with a seaside dip if you have enough of the other refreshments on offer!! - don't leave Vilanculos without visiting this place...

“Truly unique bar/restaurant right on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Not a fancy restaurant with elaborate decor -but if you want to sit right on the beach with your feet in the seasand and have an ice cold beer , drink or coctail or have outstanding seafood this is the place for you. Truly unique and wonderfull and we went there every single day during our 6 day stay.
