The food can be a bit heavy, but it's definately a different taste from all the standard Portuguese cuisine in luanda. I've eaten there excellently many times although it dropped a bit in quality overtime.

Stumbled into this restaurant while lost looking for another - what providence! The restaurant was so good I was very surprised to see that it was not yet reviewed on TripAdvisor. The chef is from Madagascar and was trained very well in French cuisine. The restaurant is very clean and very nicely decorated and the staff was very attentive but... More

If you're looking for French cuisine stay away from this place. I ordered grilled chicken here and what I got what similar to street food for which I paid close to $100.There are better options/value for money on Ilha de Cabo.

This place is a rip off. Nothing here is close to French cuisine as you know it. Food is below average and no different than street food. You can have a better meal on the street for less. Returned my appetizer and no one bothered asking me why and I was charged for it. Visit at your own risk.

Went here tonight with my husband and four friends and was very impressed! Great table snacks and fantastic warm, fresh bread rolls. We didn't all have starters, but those who didn't were quite glad because the main portions are big! I had the Cote D'Agneau (Lamb) I had it with chips and salad. The lamb was nice, very thinly sliced... More

You want to try the Petit Gateau if you go to the Petit Bistro. The restaurant is small, the atmosphere intimate and this makes it ideal for a couple. Although not cheap, you will not be disappointed by the food or the service. Recommended to book at least in the afternoon of the day, as the seats are limited. The... More

Went here for lunch and the place was packed. We had fish and it was absolutely perfect! The profiteroles for dessert are a dream. Would not mind going again.
