While in Vilankulos on honeymoon our first dinner experience was Casarex. The good was excellent, the staff friendly and the setting beautiful.

This place has stunning views of the ocean and Mozambique coastline from a raised location on the coast. We enjoyed a variety of seafood and cocktails for lunch. Food was excellent, fresh, and reasonably priced, although food prices are much lower farther south in the center of Vilanculos.

We diner at Casa Rex for three night in a row. Very good service and also very good sea food. The price is almost the same of other restaurants in Vilanculos but the Casa Rex food is for sure a lot better quality and taste.

The restaurant is in need of renovation or a fresh coat of paint. Food isn't bad, but nothing remarkable. The views to the sea are a plus and meal prices are acceptable.

We had a great dinner by the veranda, the food was delicious at good prices and the service was probably the best (and fastest) we had in Vilanculos. The decoration and attention to detail make this place a winner and definitely worth a visit.

Fantastic views of the beach wherever you sit and a fantastic atmosphere. The service was brilliant and the food was good. Only problem was the waiting time for the food to arrive..1hr or so for the mains..seems a common problem in most restaurants around the town.
