“Genuine Mozambican excellent food and ambiance”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Although a slow service, I think this is part of the mozambican way. A place for slow food. The restaurant is a very informal setting with almost natives as guests. The food was very good, tasty and original. The mozambican tiger prawns were very special and the best of all the "ameijoas" their clams. Price is good too. Not luxurious at all, but one of the best food in Maputo without doubt.

“Great seaside location for a good seafood restaurant”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

There's nothing nicer than eating good seafood at a restaurant right on the beach. Sagres in Maputo offers exactly this. Great location, good food and service.

“Ok lunch at Sagres”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We ate at Sagres as it was walking distance from our hotel. The service was slow. The crumbed calamari and grilled chicken were tasty. We had asked for peri-peri chicken but just received a chilli sauce on the side. Peri-peri seems to be elusive in Maputo, strangely enough. The calamari was not served with tartare sauce and we received none when we asked. Our grilled prawns were ok, we felt it could have done with more seasoning & had not been de-veined. The food was not cheap compared to South Africa but was probably reasonable by Maputo standards.
