I went on a Sunday. They offered a Portuguese buffet. The taste was good and you could even say that some of the selection was healthy (some meat steamed). The price was fine. The service was a bit slow, but the waitress was friendly. The manager (or owner) passed by the tables to check if everything was fine, but not sure if that helped or he was just showing up. If you go on a Sunday, go early because it gets busy. It has kind of a view if you are in the terrace, although it is not spectacular given that the ocean is passing the street and many cars around. The only thing I could complain was that I ordered ice-cream for dessert and they brought me different flavor than the ones I ordered. I didn't make a big deal of it because I was OK on trying something new. The ice-cream was just fine though. In general, I would recommend going. It has kind of a family environment, at least on Sundays.

Gorgeous seafood and nice location. A bit noisy and the could add some better sauces to the Giant Tiger prawns, but overall good experience

Zambi is divine. Great setting & convivial atmosphere. The clams are really good, plus they serve the best garlic bread in the city. Yummy.

Its a great place in Maputo, with a very good menu, big shrimps, lobsters, calamaris and seafood in general. Good service and ambient in front of the beach.
