This place is legend among Maputo dwellers, but I can only imagine they have not had proper churrasqueria chicken as available in Portugal. I ate here, it was expensive, at about $20 for my meal, and decent, but nothing to write home about.

I had Sunday lunch at Piri Piri and enjoyed the atmosphere and food. It has a comfy local vibe and the food is typical Portuguese, well done, and reasonably priced.

The menu focuses mainly on chicken dishes such as grilled chicken with peri-peri or chicken curry but other seafood dishes are also available. Must come here if you want some good grilled chicken!

No wonder why this place is always busy the food portions are good, the taste is nice, beer is cheap, have a good offer on deserts, the staff is friendly. Is a great place to go for dinner and beer with friends.

Great for their speciality chicken and clams also very good - just unfortunately on evening we visited that they were totally out of prawns (in Maputo of all places?!) Otherwise safe option with kitchen open later than most others in this area

Their food is differently prepared with the most unusual flavors especially their Fish. The place was was closed to our hotel and convenient for our almost everyday outing.

Having stopped in Maputo for a night we decided to explore . Was very happy to have found this little gem in the middle of town . The Prego was amazing as were the prawn rissoles . Service was also top class

Very local restaurant set in the heart of the CBD and full of locals. Grab a table right on the sidewalk and while you're enjoying the mozambican food you can listen to the sounds of the evening open up in this bustling town. Absolutely delicious...More

It's like who goes to Maputo and don't visit Piri Piri. The food always so lovely and the Portuguese ambiance remains always my favourite. A definate place to go over and over.
