The restaurant is not a luxurious one, is simple. The food is nice and fast, no long waiting time. The the service is bad. Looks like they have no training. The response is slow.

The food was ok, but the service was awful. I would think a better place for a cheap beer and a prego roll for lunch rather than a sit down dinner. We had a bad experience with the waiter trying to rip us off so just keep a check on what you've paid and what change you receive.

Tendinha is across the road from the Tropico Hotel, its very informal snack type restaurant for a quick meal or snack, its central and if you go there park at the hotel, parking is not easy around the restaurant, its an average price for Luanda where everything is very expensive.

This restaurant is quite convenient if you want to escape the hype ($$$...) of the restaurants in the Epic Sana Hotel or any of the surrounding hotels. The place is simple, accross the street from Epic Sana, so no problem in walking in Luanda at night; the menu seems freshly imported from Portugal: bread, olives, cheese, etc. as an starter... More

Nearby Hotel Epic Sana Luanda, it's good alternative to run away from expensive meals at hotel, cuisine is a mix of Angolan and Portuguese gastronomy with fair prices.

Went to this place with a couple of friends. The service is OK, yet the food doesn't take long to be served. It had tables outside which are nice for smokers or to have a beer in the afternoon. Good place.

Nice watering hole for a beer and to soak in the atmosphere, both outside and inside the restaurant. Open a bit late and not expensive.

Portuguese-Angola cafe diner with icecream! Outside seating. Mixed local and contractors. Very fast service with basic fish rice, chicken rice dinners for $20-25. Beer $1.50 for a small beer and $4 for a pint. Walking distance 100 meter from Hotel Tropico down the hill next to BMW dealership and around the corner 100 meters from Hotel Skyna.
