Spent plenty of time here. Whether just for a beer whilst watching the football or for dinner. Food is great and staff super friendly. Had dinner on braai-day Friday which was very good and they also had some cool live music. Well worth a visit, and no doubt you will be back again.

had some great time relaxing in this place. a bit far from the city but worth the drive! very pricey compare to other places in Vilanculos (almost twice!) but if you want a great place on the beach it might be the place for you

We stayed at the Hotel belonging to casbah. Having breakfast every morning directly at the Beach was amazing. Food is really good and the staff super helpful.

Great location, nice food, good pina colada. Bit pricey though. Nice to engage with the curio sellers, watch the kite-surfers and paddle boarders from your table.

My partner and I went here for lunch on a weekday, we were able to get a sit at a table on the beach! It was a great place to watch water sports and play with dogs that are around. We thought the food was good but not anything amazing and a little over priced. If you want true mozambique... More
