Fish Market

Reviewed By takalaniJmoleya - Pretoria, South Africa

New improved fish market is very clean compared to one last visited about three or so years ago. Moved not far from old location. The hygiene standards have drastically improved.
The fish and prawns is still the best I have ever tested in the world. Keep up the great set up

Sagres Shellfish Restaurant

Reviewed By Pati R

It is such a typical restaurant of Maputo...love to go and have some typical Portuguese style sardines...
Don’t mis the “Camarão alhinho” (garlic sauce prawns) for starter and the famous Mozambican “pão de alho” (garlic bread):
If not to hot, try to sit outside and have a good sea view....ah....don’t forget to try Mozambican beers Laurentina or 2M

Cafe Sol

Reviewed By SunnyW358 - Albuquerque, New Mexico

We have been to this cafe several times because we like the ambiance of the cafe.
An interesting feature is that sometimes they hold a craft market. Today also the premises of the cafe had a craft market. Vendors were just fixing their stalls at 9.30 a.m.
We ordered toasted sandwiches, coffee with milk and galao. The food came pretty fast today and galao was also much better this time. The portions, however, were very small for the prices they charged. We were also there after a hefty session of morning exercise and were especially hungry.
We liked the fact they had wholewheat bread, which many places in Maputo did not offer.
We would probably be back for brunch soon.

Zambi

Conveniently located in Maputo's C.B.D district , Zambi is picturesquely located overlooking the Maputo bay with an amazing view of Catembe. Zambi is a Restaurante that excels in the culinary art of preparing local fresh seafood, top grade aged meat and an already famous Nikkei sushi.

We have eaten here many times and it always maintains its quality consistently. It has a great variety of meat and fish dishes and we especially enjoy the lagostins tails, seared tuna and petit gateaux. Nice atmosphere to enjoy a late afternoon lunch.

Bel Piatto

Reviewed By Christina C - Nashville, Tennessee

My husband and I went to Bel Piatto for dinner and had a completely adequate dinner. I had the seafood fettuccine and he had the pesto gnocchi. We were intrigued by a well reviewed Italian restaurant in Mozambique. What we received was an adequate representation of Italian food. It wasn't great. It wasn't bad. The food is clearly made freshly and the service was attentive. I have to say I think we had better meals in Maputo but if you are looking for Italian - Bel Piatto is a passable reproduction.

This is quite a popular Portuguese restaurant in Maputo. There is a lunchtime buffet and does get quite busy. The food is quite average and doesn't reflect the price you pay.

Campo de Fiori

Reviewed By Patrick M

If this review was in a European town I'd probably rate this restaurant a 3/5, but considering this is Maputo, the restaurant clearly goes a long way to get some authentic Italian ingredients. The pasta & main courses are of good value and are overall good. The pizzas however are pretty poor so stay away from those.
Amazingly the starters are where this place excelles. With fresh authentic hams & cheeses from Italy.
Also very pleasant as it has a large outdoor area where locals & expats meet.

Manjar dos Deuses

Reviewed By Taeyoung K - Juba, South Sudan

고급레스토랑의 분위기가 흠뻑 느껴지고, 음식은 돼지고기 필레와 새콤달콤한 상그리아를 주문해서 먹었는데 둘의 궁합이 아주 좋았습니다. 디저트는 산딸기 요거트를 시켰는데 마무리가 괜찮았습니다.
It is expensive restaurant in Maputo. Ordered pork fillet and sangria. Pork fillet was well marinated and presented with refreshing sangria made the marriage between the two very good. Ordered yogurt with wild berries for dessert. It was really good!

Dhow Mozambique

Reviewed By Elise G - Hudson River Valley, New York

What a stunning venue! It felt as if I were in a spa. Just gorgeous ambiance. The decor, the sea, the pool, and the merchandise. I also loved the music. Simply being at Dhow, put me in a good mood! The food matched the environment. We shared one appetizer (the mixed veggie plate) and a spanokopita. I would order both again. Service was great and the pace worked. Dhow surely has my vote of excellence!
