Restaurant details
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Even though it was a Sunday night, the whole of Umhlanga fills up on a Saturday with thousands of new tourists arriving for timeshare. As we sat down for a family of six, the service was listless, although the staff were nice to our smallest child. Some key items on the menu were not available, but not apology. Finally, we placed our order and a few minutes later asked for some bread. We were told there the bread was finished, but this was a lie. Bread was served to other patrons, and then, with two pregos and another meal, bread miraculously appeared on our table. This set the tone for the rest of the meal, and, admittedly, we became a bit picky about other details. The meat with the stew was definitely not fillet as advertised as it was really tough. I nejoyed my prego, but the chips were cold. (In fact, all chips were cold compared to the meals.) My son enjoyed his prawns, but at that price, even though they were large, not worth it. In fact, the bill was just too high for service and quality received. Don't waste your money. with the dozen or so other choices immediately adjacent.

Really enjoyed the Mozambican cuisine!!! The menu had a variety of dishes from vegetarian, beef, chicken and seafood, all done in a Portuguese/Mozambique taste. Very chilled out atmosphere and friendly staff.

Perfectly fit for purpose restaurant meal. Not fussy, no thrills, decent selection and prices. No awards but fine for a night out with good value.

This is an unpretentious restaurant and we had a great evening. The food is very good and I had my best beef trinchado ever!
The service was perfect. It's also not pricey so I thought it was good value for money.
