“OK to hang out in”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

This bar is in a good central location. It seems popular with travellers and locals alike. We ate there once and the meal was accepable though not particularly Cape Verdean.

The second time we visited because we heard a live band playing Morna's whilst passing in the street below and went up to check it out. Great band (3 guitarists, female singer) - worth checking out when they may be having music nights.

“A gem in Mindelo”
Reviewed September 8, 2011

We visited this place more than once on our stay in Mindelo. It's lively and friendly and the mainly young staff were all attentive and helpful. It attracts a wide range of customers from family groups to young couples. There is internet access, a TV (not loud) and on one of our visits live music in the corner but somehow the place is big enough for all of this to happen side by side. Despite the name the food isn't just pizza (though the one I had was very good and freshly prepared in a glass kitchen at the edge of the restaurant) there are Cape Verdean dishes too, and a good selection of drinks. Cape Verde isn't a top destination for foodies but this is definitely one of the better options.
