Just across the road from the Epic Sana hotel and less than two minutes from the Skyna Hotel this friendly cafe is perfect from escaping the clinical atmosphere and high prices of the hotels. Popular with friendly locals and expats it serves local dishes and international staples such as steak, egg and chips. Portions are decent and for Angola the prices are reasonable. On my last visit the power went out for over 30 minutes but the service was uninterrupted. I'll be back.

A great restaurant for drinks & quick simple food. The outside pavement atmosphere is robust but authentic with visitors and locals enjoying themselves.

authentic food, a geniune experience inspired by the Angolan culture, and very friendly staff. Carlos, the waiter always makes sure that I am satisfied and that everything is up to my expectations. I dine here almost everyday when I am in Luanda.

Tendinha is located on Luanda's main drag near 3 large hotels: Tropico, Skyna and the newly-opening Epic Sana. Food is served in good portions and is healthy enough. Draught beer is palatable, service is surly and under-welcoming but reasonably efficient. Toilets could do with proper and regular cleaning but the building is a bit neglected. Owing to the heavy use of olive/veggy oil there's a greasy atmosphere reminiscent of 1960s UK transport cafes. Many ex-pats, mostly manual workers from the oil industry, like to come here after work. It's a convenient meeting point.

It's a good alternative for Luanda. They have the daily menu with many options. Spite the very simple ambiance, the foood has a homemade style. Daily menu costs around US$ 25.
At this place you can't have a table for yourself, everyone that comes in seats at any vacant seat.
