The service is terrible, I made the reservation much earlier and when I arrived I did not have any table ready, I had to wait for them to get one and after sitting down the service was worse the waiter forgot our dishes, it was a terrible night.

6 of us stopped over in Maputo for a quick lunch while on our way back to Jhb via Komatie port. Service was meticulous - 5 star. I was really in the mood for a Laurentina beer, once upon a time the beer of choice in Moz, but they didn't have...disappointing. We started with clams, which were the highlight of... More

Before tonight we thought the norm for Maputo dining was an hour wait time for your food and an inattentive waiter...but Marnabrasa has proven us wrong. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. This place is totally a do over...thank you Issac for amazing service

Visited this restaurant whilst on a business trip to Maputo for Lunch. Ordered a grilled red snapper and I must say it was one of the best prepared red snappers I ever had. The service is fast and efficient and prices are market related. Due to the popularity of this restaurant, parking is sometimes congested. Worth a try when in... More

Awesome restaurant along the sea front - I was tempted into a champagne sangria and since returning have entertained friends twice with that recipe! The food was in abundance and made to perfection. I had the meat platter whilst colleagues had the seafood platter - both looked sumptuous and tasty. Their chilli was so great that we requested a take... More

I took a salard which was well presented but nothing special to taste. However, the ambience and outside seating made it a pleasant experience. Service was a little slow for a salard. Waiter service didn't warrant a tip.

I have made 3 visits to this restaurant in the last 2 months. Not once has any member of our party had a bad meal. The seafood in particular is awesome and very well presented. Excellent and friendly staff. The pricing is absolutely reasonable and better than most other top restaurants in maputo. You can have seating outside under cover... More
