Cafe Acacia has a lovely location in a private park with a view across Maputo Bay-- that is the main reason to come here, as well as the playground for kids. The menu is fairly small but fine; vegetarian options are somewhat limited. Lots of drinks options. All rather pricey for Maputo, though!

Just across the street from the Hotel Cardoso, this great cafe has both indoor and al fresco seating. The view over the city is great. The coffee is delicious as the food is better than average. The cafe is in a safe area and almost lets you think that Maputo is a lovely place (it's not). But this cafe is... More

The nice park and calm atmosphere make this a great place for having a martini or glass of wine in the evening, while reading a book. I also had coffee and cheesecake here and they were both great as well. The salade I ate was a bit less nice - a bit watery because of rising, I guess.

Good views, food but poor service. Excellent place for a day out with the kids and family, with free wi fi.

Nice place if you are coming with kids - there is playground. Amazing sea view as well. The coffee is rather average - too sweet and weak, but OK, you could take tea instead. The staff was quick and friendly.

This is a great place to take visitors to Maputo or to have a casual family lunch. There is a little playground for the children and a fantastic little library Livro Aberto. The views over Maputo Bay are great from here as well, and it is a convenient place to have a meal when visiting the Museum of Natural History.

The waiters dont give a damn about the customers. Two customer walk by empty handed after waiting for 30 mins but no waiter came to ask their orders. The waiters are not trained... More
