“Delicious Food, Nice Atmosphere, Awesome Sunset”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I was in Angola for a business trip and has to visit Ilha Luanda (Luanda Island).
I just picked the restaurant who looked to me the best at that place and I was not disappointed.
The food was excellent.
I ordered shrimps with exotic fruit as salad and shrimps/lobster curry and then a mixed fruit plate.
It was very delicious and would do it again as soon as I'll be back.
However, the service is quite slow and waiters are not that professional.
The price was high but expected for a such place in Angola.
Considering the atmosphere and the nice place on the beach and the sunset view, I was rather happy to be there.

“Good atmosphere at Coconuts”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

I was in Angola for business, and it's clear that business drives the price of everything in Luanda to silly (London) levels. The city is very much a contrast between recent - unchecked? - development and desperate poverty. For the lucky, Coconuts is a very nice beach-side restaurant on the sand-bar of Ilha. Good choice of dishes, straightforward service, and not unreasonable prices, given the above. Well worth getting out of Luanda's gridlock traffic for.

“Nic place for a meal and some sun.”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Good food but slow service.It is one of the pricy places as most of them are. Nice place to relax also early in the day. Stay away from the long walks on the beack. Xpats walking alone on the beach are targeted and recent robberies has taken place both on the road and on the beach between the restaurants.
