This Maputo institution is a must try for its piri piri prawns or chicken whilst in the city. Service is friendly and efficient - my waitress welcomed me with a big smile. You can take a seat in the old school interior for the vibrant atmosphere or sit outside for some serious people watching (but you may get some hassle... More

The used to be famous piripiri restaurant from old LM or even Maputo times no longer. The service quality makes it annoying and then the quality expectation finishes on the negative. I love Maputo I hate lowing quality for no reason

Go there if there is no other place to go. Their famous "Frango à Piri-Piri" is not what it used to be. Its location obeys the "Location Location Location" factor, but, that's about it!

Piri-Piri is an old flame in the restaurant history of Maputo, existing for more than 50 years. It is one of the most famous beer places in Maputo, with all the local beers. Originally it was famous for its charcoal grilled chicken and charcoal grilled prawns, which are still served and very good and popular. But they also have the... More

The chicken here is delicious. This is one of the oldest restaurants in town and every single time we end up getting the grilled chicken.

Great piri piri prawns. The restaurant decoration could use a overview but food good and drinks ok. A bit noisy and TV sometimes too loud.
