With the heat in Nampula, this is the best place to go for lunch. Quite breezy under thatched roofs, great food although the service is a bit slow. It is not a wow place but a really decent place compared to other restaurants in the vicinity. Food is affordable and they have a packed bar with all kinds of drinks.

Had a delicious meal there with a temporary uffering of lobster (Langosta). Cooking was perfect and the side offerings were very tasty. Excellent service combined with the alfresco seating makes the place very attrctive.

This place is horrible. Recommended by the hotel, I went with three friends hoping for a nice dinner. Everything started well; the place looks nice and the drinks came swiftly after our order was taken. However, things quickly worsened and continued downhill at a frightening pace. First, we waited more than an hour for the food, and the staff was... More

Best dish is the Portuguese Beef and only disappointment was Chicken Tikka. Service was quite slow as is the norm in Nampula. However Here... More

Have it seasoned Tanzanian-style, and a bean soup as starter. Reasonable prices. Service is a bit slow, but its worth the wait.

I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy- apart from the service taking forever, the food being cold, the prawns we ordered were way past their expiry date and when we bought this up with the manager; she refused to acknowledge it. We offered to compromise and pay 50% of the bill, but they refused and locked the gates... More

the dinner started off nicely, but we waited approximately an hour for our food. Not only were the meals cold, but the prawns that we were served smelled unpleasant and tasted everything but fresh. When we made the head waitress aware of this she started poking her fingers around in out food, instigating that nothing was wrong with it. We... More
