Lunch. Height of tourist season, right on the beach.. recipe for disaster but so pleasantly surprised. Our waiter brought us a plate of three different sized prawns so that we could decide which size we wanted and we opted for the middle sized jobbies based on the advice of our host. The advice was to avoid the (huge) large size as the heads take up a fairly substantial ratio of the total size and the small ones, well, why go small? They were absolutely fantastic! Our son chose calamari which sent him into raptures. The beer is great and they make an absolutely wicked, refreshing, limb-loosening drink with rum, juice and ice - the name of which escapes me for one reason or another!
Don't expect swish or swanky, just really, really good beach-front eating.

Be careful about complaining about sandy clams, the owner here is a bit prickly. I wish I had have just eaten the sand rather than deal with that aloofness. The rest of the food was OK if quite expensive...but the service let our experience down.

You will experience the best time here, with great sea-food.
Plus, you can choose to sit right by the water, how enticing is that!
It is worth a visit by anyone in or visiting Maputo.

Prawns are fantastic, beer is superb. Power might be off but the staff still produce quality stuff.

Enjoy the views with friendly staff. Close to the Southern Sun hotel so enjoy the short walk with a full stomach.

My third visit to this great restaurant on the beach. The food was fantastic - fish and prawns, the service great and there was live music by a very good local singer/guitarist. Atmosphere was nice with everyone enjoying the food and music. Slightly more expensive than other similar palces but well worth it for the quality.
