Visited LM on a few occasions. They definitely specialise in fish dishes. Food is nicely prepared and always fresh. You can see that the locals enjoy the place as well. Will always go back for more!! Old Mozambique relives!!

With friends we spend two nights in Pretoria on arrival before heading off to the Kruger Park, as always I like to visit LM in the East whenever I am in town. We enjoyed a great meal with seamless service and excellent wine. Always delivers.

Great value for money, great service, George is great and is willing to speak Afrikaans and knows his specials, wine glass always full, of course the prawns stole the show. To be a new local for prawns.
