“Good for the day after”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

The setting is amazing as this restaurant is set right on the beach and the views are amazing. The food is what you would expect from a restaurant that prides itself in seafood. I had the clams as an appetizer after a long night of boozing and partying, and this was a welcomed dish that lifted my spirits and helped to avoid the dreaded hangover, or as the locals call it a "Babalaza". the place is good for a nice lazy afternoon spent with friends and sampling the delicious seafood on offer. the prices are reasonable and the prawns are a must. if weather permitting do seat outside as the breeze is amazing and the ambiance is truly inviting to an extended day of doing nothing.

“Convivial place”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

I love the setting, on the beach, and the convivial atmosphere. Although there are people trying to sell you stuff from the beach side that can be a bit of an irritation to some.
I have been twice and never seem to get past the starters. We ended up making a tapas-like meal of the starters. I loved their chicken livers but last time I was there they were not as good. Their rissoles are delicious though and I want to go back to try more of their menu.
The owner was there and he seems like a great restauranteer, who is always around.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

We went to Sagres for dinner because of the good reviews we'd read of the restaurant but were quite disappointed. The restaurant looks grubby and while it may have been pleasant to sit on the balcony, the stench (from the sea??) made that impossible for us.
We ordered the grilled prawns, prawn curry and grilled calamari and found all of them quite average. Without the chopped chillies and peri- peri sauce, the meal would have been very bland. Despite the restaurant not being busy on the night we were there, the service was very slow.
This restaurant makes for a very ordinary night out - with distinctly unspectacular food.

“Prawns on the beach”
Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

This was oir first stop for a quick linch as we arrived in Maputo. It is right next to the Southern Sun, so a great alternative to pricey hotel food.

The prawns and calamari was great. Ask for the piri-piri, it's nice and spicy.

Service was incredibly quick.

The restaurant is right on the beach. Good seafood (I particularly liked the clams), but dessert is also quite nice. The service is Ok as well
