We had breakfast on last day. Great location & sea view, especially from upper floor. It's bit pricey, though.

Food was excellent but extremely expensive, even at Maputo prices. Be aware that they charge for everything, including the bread board they offer for starters. The wine is also excellent but again very expensive. If you're going to go then be prepared for the bill

Here nothing special. Food poor to awful. Português menu badly corrupted. Prices over the top. Stay away! Waste of time and money!

This is quite a popular Portuguese restaurant in Maputo. There is a lunchtime buffet and does get quite busy. The food is quite average and doesn't reflect the price you pay.
