“Nice place”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Food was good, well worth a visit. The langoustini was a great dish. Check if you use an amex card - donn't think they accept.

“Decent food, nice place”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Sitting in the garden is pleasant if the boom-boxes on teh sea front don't drown out your conversation. Food is nicely made and presented. I ate seared tuna which was well done and could have benefited from an interesting sauce. The desserts are huge. The prices, on the higher side.

“A modern place with delicious food”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Very close to the waterfront, this restaurant is very well located with plenty of parking space. The food is great but expensive. Good for companies who want to impress their foreign customers. :)
Some times the number of people ruins the romantic athmosfere that could be provided. Don't come on weekends if you want a nice, relaxing meal. For a starter, try the garlic bread... the best in town.

“Not always great”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

I don't know if it's because they don't have the same chefs every night, but I've had great food and really bad food (ordering exactly the same thing). The place is definitely one of the nicest in Maputo, great athmosphere, nice for couples or friends and the food can be really good... Good selections of plates and wine. But as I've mentioned, it's a little inconsistant. I'd give it a try. Not cheap.
