Turtle cove was a perfect find after a few days in Tofo had me bored of the same dishes at the other restaurants. They have a pretty small menu, but everything I had was great: an interesting mix of flavors, generous side salads, and well presented plates. Decent wine, too. The setting is very nice and relaxing -- tropical log... More

We visited here with friends that we had met at our hotel, we took a taxi to watch the sunset before the meal, he was late so we missed it!! However the food was fantastic and service as well, it is more expensive than the other restaurants that we visited, but was a notch up.

Beautifully decorated in the style of a log cabin with a cozy lounge area and friendly staff. Hot showers, outside BBQ and cooking facilities. Yoga was well taught and refreshing, but expensive for Tofo (250 local money). Far from the beach and the lively part of Tofo, but a beautiful resort for rest and relaxation.

Simple menu with good variety. You can relax on couch or hammock, play chess, read magazines while food is being prepared. Very good pricing, for all pockets.

This was not a cheap meal by Mozambique standards, but it was definitely worth it! This Is fine dining with African fresh food whilst sitting looking out over a beautiful beach - perfect for a special lunch.

Everything from breakfast to dinner is swift, which is novel here. It's always tasty and good portions. Pancakes, fejioada, matapa and omelette all recommended. Great place to stay too.

We enjoyed the hot water chalet a lot, as well as the pool and the delicious food (even vegetarian). Due to the low season, there was not much going on, the staff reduced, but nevertheless we got want we needed.

And that's really unusual in this part of the world. The food was always good, the service quick and friendly, and the atmosphere just lovely. We were staying there, and ate there every day. We had a great time!

The food was amazing - unusual and delicious. The location was stunning - on the edge of the beach with indoor and outdoor seating. The staff were efficient and friendly. A real treat for dinner!

If you like vegetarian you will have some nice options (basic but very good). If you are lucky you can also get some sushi...
