Eight of us came here for drinks and tapas. The location is lovely although to get here from Maputo is quite a feat. We sat outside and the view to the bay and Maputo is quite lovely. The owners are a lovely couple and accommodated us in getting a few tapas instead of us eating at the buffet. So that... More

If your idea is getting out of Maputo for a different day, without the rush of traffic, this is great place for doing it. If you take the ferry, you will do a 45m walk through the beach. The seafood is good and the view is excellent. Prepare to wait a bit for the meal, but you can go for... More

The food was pretty good, the staff was attentive and the view was really nice. As local ex-pats, we try to find places to take business associates and visitors, and this place fit the bill for us. This restaurant is located on the Bay of Maputo.

Catembe Gallery Hotel has 2 lovely restaurants. One in the building itself, Marisol restaurant, and the other is built in the Ocean, which is a tapas restaurant. The food is delicious and the staff very nice. When you get there, try the garlic bread and the prawns, our favorites of the Marisol restaurant. And the tapas restaurant is perfect for... More

I have been to the restaurant a few times now. When you arrive at the port, the hotel can send their bus to come and fetch you from there.There is a choice between the 'cafe-bar' area which is right by the sea, and the actual restaurant. Both have splendid views of Maputo and the ocean. The seafood is absolutely great... More

Very beautiful restaurant and Lounge with amazing atmosphere and most friendly and welcoming service. Best to go without car and walk at the beach or be picked up by the hotel to avoid waiting for the ferry boat to cross. The perfect getaway from Maputo.

After the old ferry experience and a walk through the beach, arriving for a cold beer and delicious grilled seafood is more than you could dream of SO close to Maputo! Kind service and wonderful view of the city from the deck bar just make it the best afternoon any day of the week...AND we most of the time catch... More
