Maybe the chef was uninspired, the ceviche was unedible, service was also very slow, a disappointment considering it´s supposed to be one of the top restaurants in Maputo.

Have just been for dinner,after reading great reviews. Cocktail average.Entree great.Main,steamed cod with garlic lemon and capers,and I asked for rice instead of potato. Got potato,no capers and the fish was so dry and rubbery. Staff very friendly. This is top end Maputo dining.Very disappointed.
