What a pleasure to eat authentic Portuguese & Mozambiquan food. It was a taste of Africa for us with such fantastic tasting food that was beautifully presented.

of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music.

destroyed most of the city but the contiguous
neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained

We do deliver to your hotel room, just call us, we speak English. The best mozambican food in Lisbon and probably in Portugal, we have been open for 30 years and we do unique food. Came and try the best chamoussas in Lisbon, the Makoufe a dish that the chef recommends and the Piri-Piri Chicken without doubt the best chicken in Lisbon for sure.Wi-Fi available inside for customers
