Good ambiance and good food (when it finally arrived!) Nice bar with tables by the sand and a small dancefloor in the premises.

Tricky place to get too but we'll worth it..the food is a little better than the hotel restaurants in the area and priced around the same,and of course you wait over an hour for mains..but its and right on the beach so your table in plonked on the beach sand..Worth one visit at least.

What a top spot. We had one lunch, 3 breakfasts and 3 dinners at Casbah and every one was great. Great staff and management. Super chilled spot next to the Kite Surfing Centre. The fresh fish (Sierra?) was delicious. So too the Dressed Crab and the Tempura Prawns and Prawn Rissoles. There was a band on our last night and... More

The best place for R&R's and to chill out on the Beach. The staff are friendly and the service is excellent. The Tampura Prawns are the best I have ever had - highly recommended.

Visited Casbah for a lovely relaxed lunch on the beach. Their tempura prawns and king prawn special are a must, wouldn't recommend the crumbed calamari. They really went out of their way to assist with creating a simple meal for fussy children and provided a cooler box stashed with M2's on ice. A good visit when in Vilanculos.

I am a regular at Casbah and highly recommend the restaurant to travelers to Vilankulo. The management, Juanita and Bobo are at your beck and call constantly, the staff are excellent, the service is great, the food fantastic and the vibe is super friendly.

We have been here for dinner and it is a very good restaurante and the environment very relaxing. It is a beach bar also so you can enjoy it too just to have a drink. Food is very good, fish is fresh and you can have a snack or a good meal. Really enjoy it

Was really looking forward to lunch here but left disappointed. Told us wifi was not working when it was. Chicken was off and waitress could not understand a word of English. Prawns were ok but nothing special. Credit card machine was broken.

Food average- but a amazing beach bar experience. One should try the local R&R cocktail, local rum and raspberry.

Hi Dirk- We are sorry that you were disappointed with your meal at the Casbah. Over the Xmas period we sell a few hundred grilled chickens and it's really bad luck that you got one that was not to your standards. I would appreciate it if you could provide me with more detail via our website casacabanabeach so that I... More

We visited twice and they were consistent.. Though the food takes a bit to come, with the sea view and the drinks time goes by. The restaurant offers nice food, try the ribs or the sea pasta! Healthy environment and happy feelings!
