“Good food, good value”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

Good food, fresh ingredients, alright service and a central location on Nyerere. By Maputo standards, this place is good value. I recommend it.

“Pricy! But good food.”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

You pay extra for a good food here. Very clean and nice table, well presented food.
Waiters were not friendly, they did not know about what is in the menu. Fish menu was very limited.
Olives, bread and spreads offers you are chargeable though it makes you feel like complementary.

“A little pricier than most but worth the extra”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

First time here and I wasn't disappointed. The pork tornados with rough mashed potato and beans were really tasty and the service was good. A bit more pricy than others but still cheap by Aussie standards. Be careful when the bread, butter, olives are put on the table while waiting for the meal - they are all priced. Check the menu! It is a Portuguese thing! Good selection of seafood, pork, beef chicken etc.
