“Good food and wines”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Food is good as well as wines, mainly Portuguese. It was better when the owner was alive. Parking is a problem. Very dark outside the restaurant due to lack of street electricity.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

Very good restaurant, with great Portuguese food.
The Veneza Steak and the Codfish Veneza way are two very good dishes, and very well served.
The service is great. The price is a bit high.

“Excellent and tasty foods”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

if you love beef, this place has one of the best steaks and kebabs. the food is a lot and one food is enough for two. But, the price is a bit expensive. But, you get a value for what you paid. It is also located in good secured part of the city. They also have good wine collections

“Beef Eater!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

We went here for dinner one night on a verbal recommendation. The restaurant itself is quite a simple setting and is nothing flash so not a lot of ambience, however the food.... it was brilliant! We had been told to have the "Beef on a Rock" (Bife na Pedra) and I am glad we did! The one piece of advice that I would have to give is to skip starters (and even go light on any bread) because the mains are very large! My fiancé and I actually ordered a Bife na Pedra each, not knowing what we were in for. When the steak and the hot rock arrived, we looked at it and thought that was quite generous for the two of us.... only to find they then bought out another steak and note rock AND a massive pile of chips with two fried eggs on top! We loved the food, the steak was just amazing, but make sure you are hungry when you go although it looks like they actually do doggie bags if you can't get through it. The cost was on par with most Luanda restaurants, the "house" white was around US$15 and the steak was US$50 each. The other meals around us looked to also be very generous portions as well, so I don't think you can really go wrong if you are hungry!

“Simply the best steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

Veneza is a Portuguese Restaurant run by a Portuguese family. Basic interior with a completely separate area for smokers. All brightened up by numerous fish tanks.

The dishes are huge so skip starters and consider sharing a main

We had Bife na Pedra and it lived up to the reviews and recommendations; a must for steak lovers." The guys next to us were enjoying the traditional cod dish which looked and smelled fantastic. The cheapest half bottles of wine are good (from AOA1500). The mains are around AOA50,000 which seems a lot but when you split between two it actually works out as a reasonable cost for Luanda standards.

Service was efficient and friendly.
