Average, considering we are in Mozambique. The environment is nice as the restaurant is in a kind of garden. The steaks are the main recipe. Good location, center town and just close to the National Museum. For Sporting fans (SCP) all over the world it is a must to visit at least once in life.

Nice clean place but the food is pretty much average. Good place to hang out for drinks and snacks during the day. The staff is amazing though, an advantage for the owners. They go their way to please and deserve good tips.

We tend to use this place for coffee and cakes, the atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly. It may not be a Michelin Starred restaurant but it's nice to chill here I will continue going for the rest of my duration here in Nampula.

Before coming to Nampula, I already had this restaurant referred as being one of must go's. Although not a fan of the club, I found it decent to have a meal.

if you want a quick & decent meal. Prato do dia is always quick, my favourite one was the portugues caldeirada (seafood stew)

Have visited sporting various times this month and found the food to be acceptable. Service was mediocre on all occasions and excellent on the two occasions I sat at the bar, bar lunch type meal. 'The prato dia' or meals of the day are very reasonably priced and a quick, acceptable meal. Would recommend it.

I am not a fan of Sporting for the simple reason that I object to flies anywhere near the food I am eating. I was born and raised in Africa, but I still object to flies anywhere near my food. I sometimes find the food at Sporting to be poorly made, sometimes they surprise me and do it reasonably well.... More
