Good restaurant of seefood, right on the beach front, facing on the Maputo Lagoon.
Simple sea food, fresh and genuine, setved in traditional local style with piri/piri and garlic/butter sauce.
Not very cheap, not very expensive, but very fast to serve the customers and very polite in treating them.
To be suggested and recommended above all to the customers of the near hotel Southern Sun as an alternative more typical and cheap to the hotel restaurant.

This restaurant is situated right on the beach and has an airy,covered terrace. Extremely friendly staff, authentic, local food, with all the Moz classics and one or two Portuguese dishes on the menu. Don't expect it fancy, it's not. Just fresh, well prepared seafood and fish. Definitely a place worth going to for a dinner in Maputo. Walking distance from the Southern Sun and Radisson hotels.

We stumbled upon Sagres after attempting to go to another restraurant and then ending up here on the taxi drivers recommendation. A little skeptical at first because the outside area was a little depressing but the food was great! Our first time in Mozambique, all three of us were craving some good seafood and that's what we got! We started with mussles and rissois which were really tasty and then moved on to prawns and crab dishes. I wouldn't recommend ordering the carafe of house wine, it tasted like water but other than that, the food was tasty. We had a really nice waiter who spoke English which was very helpful. Definitley recommend!

They make good sea food, and the location is really nice as it is on the beach. I really enjoy going here on a weekend for lunch. This place can get really packed on a hot day in Maputo.

I have been to Sagres many times over the last 6 years and have always enjoyed the location and the food. However the quality is slipping and the last two visits the meals have been ordinary. Beware of the manager, she is argumentative when given feedback and makes sure that the staff and other customers hear her response. If the apology comes it is away from the crowd so they dont hear about the stuff up. Pity - it is a great location and I hope the quality improves to original.
