“Clams was Fantastic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

The prawn cakes was really very good, great creamy filling and very crisp as well as the clams which was served with toasted rolls, simple yet delicious. Great place to people watch, soak up the CBD of Maputo! Sit at the windows outside to avoid the hawkers.

“Nice chicken but definitely overrated!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

You can find chicken like this in so many places in Mozambique but cheaper.
The decoration, ambience (lights), comfort and service should be better.

“Good Piri-Piri Chicken”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

It's a decent place to eat, we liked it. Nothing too fancy, but good enough. Tips should be around 10-20 mzn, according to what someone told us.

“Thumbs down for the peri peri chicken”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Service good and even though we sat at the pavement table, we were never really bothered by hawkers. The chicken. Simply not great. Dry with no prior marinating in their traditional peri peri sauce. Just some chopped chillies in a separate dish. A disappointment. And finally for what my opinion is worth - Maputo restaurants beware of overpricing yourselves. You're a great vibey and upbeat place with your own amazing energy. We loved the Mozambicans and never once felt intimidated or nervous. Thank you for your hospitality.

“Tasty food, good portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Staff at our hostel in Maputo (Base Backpackers) recommended this place to us, which also has the advantage of being within a safe area and a short walking distance.
Having only just arrived in Mozambique, we expected the food to be cheaper, but realised that this is a mid-range restaurant and our meal was still much cheaper than at home (UK). Of course, we ate piri-piri chicken, and it was delicious. The portions were also huge!
One tip: either sit inside, or if outside, sit away from the outside wall otherwise you'll get hassled by hawkers.
