We visited with a large group. The place lacks ambience. Though it has been recently done up it looks like it is going to topple down. Our group was seated in a courtyard surrounded by ramshackle buildings. It is dark and you cannot see what you are eating. There is plenty parking in the front. The toilets have no water... More

I have a soft spot for this place. Hidden away in away beautiful garden you get served the best and juiciest steak in town. The downside is that service can take very long so try to avoid busy nights. Prices away really reasonable for the quality.

Loved this place! My dad took me for drinks here. Prices are similar to most bars (400 kwanzas at the moment. Serves delicious snacks as well as main meals. On weekends they rent out the area next door, which is great for night life. Be prepared for expensive drinks at these night events. 1000 kwanzas for a plastic cup of... More

Appearance is rundown, architecture is old and has a village type feel. You eat in what used to be the courtyard. no bells and whistles. Service is not particularly goo. The steaks come out quick , other dishes take some time. The pepper steak is the best in Luanda. It is certainly a favourite on my list.

We regularly have dinner in Fortaleza, for its position (easy access, safe and away from Ilha noise), the place itself (an old colonial villa with terraces) and the food (classic portuguese meals, excellent pepper steak, homemade fries). Food is nice, plenty, but not for veggies or people on diet. I very much like the atmosphere, Service is slow and lazy... More

We've been here on a friday dinner, and we were 6. We ordered very simple things (steaks) and had to wait for 2 hours and a half to get our plates !! Incredible ! We're used to waiting a bit in Luanda but there... It was really outrageous. We kept asking about our plates to several waiters that just said... More
