ok it's Luanda...
ok this is a restaurant where you have descent food and all other seem to cook dogs or cats (even expensive ones).
ok you never pay the bill because your O&G company does

We were suggested to have a lobster and we had.
It was just transfered from Lisbon that is supposed to be the best place in Europe for Angolan and one of the poorest and the worst for European...

but money cannot be insulted as Lookal Mar does
Expensive is quiet Normal in Luanda but when your company doesn't pay the bill your may die...
This is a crazy amazing place with insane prices.
From NY to Singapore, no other restaurant may insult your credit card (accepted...) as the Lookal does.

En français : on y mange très bien (sans doute le meilleur de Luanda) mais les prix (si vous payez l'addition) sont insultants.
Mon client, habitué aux belles tables internationales ne s en est toujours pas remis

I am from Angola and I don't get what people see in Lookal. It has nothing special. The food is not that good, the staff is not that competent. The food takes forever...
It is very avarage. The physical place is actually cool, beach front. One coke is about 4usd, but, Luanda is an expensive place...
Well...

Complete rip off!!! Good fresh sea food, but cost me Kz101,670 or 1,070USD for 2 a person lunch. We had 1x lobster, 3 tiger prawns (charged 5!), 3 watermelon juice, 1 pineapple juice, dry curd ham, bread, percebes and canilhas and no alcohol. Watch out, avoid the Portuguese Lobster, no difference in taste but at Kz73,600 price tag is excessive. Maybe it includes a first class plane ticket.

LOOKAL MAR offers a great variety of sea food and other Portuguese tasty cuisine.
One of these days, I requested a boiled code fish with potatoes and vegetables but it was not mention in their Menu. The manager just said: "No problem my dear friend. Your order is a must!" My friends' sea food was also tasty.
Food, from starters to main course are simply the best. Made with Love and Passion.
All staff, including managers are super friendly, well trained. Seems that they love what they are doing.
Fantastic atmosphere, near the beach.
RECOMMENDED 1000%
