A great location to find Portuguese food in Maputo. The waiters are friendly, professional and speak English. There is a nice variety of traditional food to choose from. Service and cleanliness are good.

You want to eat a good Portuguese meal anytime, you are guaranteed to get it. Good cafe style setting, make it what you want it to be and you will be satisfied. The service is not always guaranteed but the food is always good.
