“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

I heard all about this restaurant. All reviews were great but was disappointed with the meal. I had the Combo Shrimp and Calamari with rice and chips. The food was good but the shrimp was over cooked and the Calamari was rubbery. There were no sauces with either one so it was dry. You get a lot for the money. Our meal was approx. $22 and service was good. You can't be in a hurry as it does take approx. 20 min to get your meal. The location is wonderful,on the beach. It does have a very old style down home quality to the restaurant. I would recommend it but don't have a high expectation.

The actual name of the restaurant is Marisqueira Sagres Restaurant

“ITS MOZAMBIQUE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Good food although not excellent as the "Combo" plate of Calamari and Prawns was not that tasty as we expected but still worth the the price as it was very reasonable. Menu has quite a varied selection for every taste.

“Good for groups”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Sagres has been around for years and I think the reason for their great success is that it is family run and there is always a a member of the family on duty. The great location on the beach is also a great attraction. A first timer has to try the drink, Maputo Flatliner, and beer lovers must have the tower of beer. It is a good idea to try a selection of starters, and the seafood dishes like fresh crab, the prawns and fresh fish, is always good. The tuna salad is huge, and the best salad in Maputo.

“Good for the day after”
3 of 5 bubbles 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.
