We stopped off in the cafe and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and price of the food. Staff were lovely, very helpful and friendly. Lovely location in the park, great place to chill out and relax!

Went here with a friend to have a coffee. Coffee was really good, however the waiter could have been a bit friendlier. Didn't try food. The view is amazing!

This is not a place to enjoy a meal. But it is a nice place to take visitors to enjoy the view and the sunset, with a drink or an ice cream. Families enjoy the space for kids to run and play. It is also a nice place to sit in the summer, as it offers shade and often a... More

Service is almost nonexistent. Food is average at best. The view and the park are excellent, the only reason why I go there.

Returned after awhile, nice place to relax with family especially on a Sunday afternoon. I was disappointed by the service, we had to find chairs for ourselves, took 15 minutes before we could catch the attention of the waiter, another long while before the drinks came. The food was not so great and for the whole time we sat there,... More

The place is nice, but the service is very disappointing. It is worth it if you have children that will definitely enjoy the park and playground. The food is simple, but okay. Nice cold draught/draft beer too. The service can be very slow and confusing. Be prepared to wait and to experience problems with your orders. However, Maputo has so... More

I stopped here at 10 am after I had visited the museum across the street. The venue was nice and another traveler told me it was nicer than the cafe in the Hotel Cardosa which also owns this restaurant. I was initially served by the head waiter who was very pleasant. Then another waiter took over. I ordered and waited... More
