I have been to this restaurant many time over the years and the food is just great, the waiters are 5*. Couldn't ask for more!

Excellent meats. Limited menu. Good wines and spirits. Service is average but not a deal breaker. The "caipirinha" is a must-have!

This restaurant is not only about amazing food but about an amazing experience and atmosphere. The waiters are friendly and the food is tantalizing. It is definitely a bucket list moment.

Loved the concept, staff are friendly and very well trained. A bit surprised that no sea food is offered considering its abundance in Mozambique. The meat kept coming and we struggled to keep up but in the end, the house won. My only grouse was the excessive salt, I found the meats over salted but my companion did not. If... More

Keep in mind you are in a place with low competition. The city does not have enough visitors or locals willing to pay for high level service and food. It seems relatively clean. With that in mind, you will be more tolerant with this restaurant. Indeed it is not your typical Brazilian rodizio, but it is close. You will find... More

Yes, they do have other things on the menu, but their special is meat "unlimited". They will bring you vegetables and all sorts of meat automatically until you say "stop" by turning a little cone upside down, showing a red colour. When you want to have more, turn the cone upside down so it shows green, and more food will... More

Go hungry - if you need a break from seafood this place is great..... Not a bargain, but the meat is some of the best in Maputo.

It is a a very classy restaurant with a variety of exotic Portuguese food and more. Last time I visit the staff was very good... I used to go there with my mother in special occasions.... the times I was there I did not found anything wrong with the staff nor the establishment...

Bad service of the staff made me shocked in such a place where you have to pay 45$. I guess it happens in the absence of the manger. They stopped attending us while we were enjoying meal, that's just 30 mints after we started the meal. When we called staff to bring more food he didn't have any guilty to... More
