The food is like good home cooking not restaurant quality - though maybe that's because Portugal has cooking but no cuisine. Service was ok better than average for Luanda and sometimes very good - just depends which staff. They were helpful staff though and most of them noticed the customers. Quite a good wine list at reasonable prices for Luanda.... More

This restaurant is inside the fairly new Skyna Hotel. The hotel is 4 star and the room prices are high. In a setting like this expectations are a bit high. The restaurant is way below expectations. Food is expensive and service is very slow and at times not excisting. Management of the hotel needs to take a look at how... More

This is a 5 star hotel. Food and wines are superb. It's one of the best places in Luanda. Employees from the restaurant are very professional and friendly. Comfortable and clean. Customers pay the parking!! This is not tolerate nowadays. Not a professional idea.

Having been a few times in Luanda and having tried most hotel buffets within the downtown and Talatona areas, I still like the one at Skyna Hotel. The variety, quality and price gives you the best value. Service and venue could be better but are o.k.

Service very slow. After waiting 35 minutes, food was served cold. Returned it and had to wait another 20 minutes. Food was a disaster. Prices are high. Will not go back.

Feels like a Soviet era dinning hall which is a shame as the staff are friendly, although far from efficient and the food is good. As a long term guest at the hotel I can testify that the chefs make an effort to vary the menu and some of the seafood dishes are great, especially considering it is a buffet.... More

Breakfasts were top quality European standard buffet style. Dinners were either 2 choice set menu, or buffet. Set was 2 of the buffet choices so really only limited to choice and quantity not quality. I had plenty - and I'm a big eater.
