“Stunning Building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Not much to do here, but it is worth a visit. You can also catch the hop on/hop off Maputo ride here.

“Not a place to eat”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Nice place to have some drinks, but not really suited to serve meals.
Very poor choices and not very tasty.

“Look at the photos...that's really all it is - a train station.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

I've been to hundreds of more impressive train stations around the world and usually because they were functional. This train station isn't for tourists. Pop in and take a photo of the impressive architecture. But don't make a special trip there as you'll be let down like I was.

“Lovely station”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Beautiful symmetrical architecture and some lovely old engines for steam train enthusiasts. Good to see that it is still in use.
