Food was good but took a long time to recieve. We only had 3 hours between arriving and catching the ferry back to Maputo. We spent 1 hour waiting for lunch Very quiet and only two other groups on the ferry so maybe not expecting customers for food and nothing prepared prior. Service was painfully slow by a waitress out... More

I had a memorable meal at the restaurant together with my family (grilled king size prawns and crab curry). We chose the menu previously and we agreed the lunch time - although time at Inhaca Island doesn't really matter... The meal was really superb.

The food wasn't anything memorable, but had decent flavour and I certainly have no complaints. It's definitely not a "must... More

When we visited none of the ferries from Maputo were operating so the restaurants and bars were fairly deserted. After a while, a good selection of salad and seafood was prepared and presented and as we had no deadline this wasn't a problem.
