I had a wonderful lunch on my last day in Luanda. The ambience is amazing! I ordered the fish skewers and grilled fish. It was fresh, tasty and absolutely worth the prices. If I had more time, we could have spent time on the beach. I know that a lot of the locals spend weekends here and that the sunday... More

This is a new place and it is very pleasant. The service is acceptable and the food is good. When the restaurant is too busy the waiters get a little lost. If you are planning to go on Saturday night or Sunday for brunch/lunch, I do recommend you to book the table in advance, it gets very busy. During the... More

The pros : nice location on the beach, very nice decoration, ideal for a drink early evening. The cons : extremely slow service at peak times (Saturday lunch), average tasting food, TBone was served cut in small slices and lukewarm, parking outside the restaurant is a hassle and a safety hazard with many "guards" demanding a fee to look after...

The restaurant has a nice decor and ambience, you can even sprawl out on the sea-facing couches. The food is decent and the service not bad. If going on a weekend, make sure you book.

Cafe del Mar is a great place to visit on a Saturday or Sunday morning. There is plenty of options from their buffet breakfast/brunch. Its ideallic for those with young children, as you are able to enjoy time with friends, while watching your children play on the beach. Delicious coffee and juices.

By far one of the best restaurants in Angola. The service is outstanding and so is the food. I highly recommend a visit especially for sunset drinks or dinner. I also suggest a reservation, especially for dinner.

Had great expectations as I had tried to eat here on 2 previous occasions and always had been fully booked. Sadly I was very disappointed... Firstly both my food was cold as well as my friend's ... Meat was also not served to order. When we informed the waiter he simply said ok and walked off. We later requested whiskeys... More

This new venue is more like a beach lounge that is best for sunset visits. It sports superb decor and the serves ice-cold drinks. The place is very expensive but if one has a budget to splurge a little, this is one of the best places in Luanda (or actually Ilha do Cabo) to lounge, relax and watch the sun... More
