We went there specially for the seafood platter that had been recommended, and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere was decidedly marine with fresh blue and white decor. Our waiter was attentive and well trained. It was a most pleasant experience.

Description
Cafe Pescador and the Reef Resort Venue are the new additions to Reef Resort in Praia de Xai Xai. Cafe Pescador has been drawing the crowds, especially those of a somewhat more sophisticated palate and culinary expectation since it opened its doors in December 2013. Seafood is the speciality and Reef Resort's fishing boat brings in the wonderful fresh daily catch from the rich ocean just meters away from the spacious 70-seater, double storey restaurant. Coupled with the abundant 'pantry' of seasonal sub-tropical fruit and vegetables, including home grown organic herbs, Cafe Pescador offers a unique dining experience. The tastefully decorated 100-seater Venue downstairs from Cafe Pescador is suitable for meetings, conferences, special occasion dinners and celebrations. Reef Resort is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, 7 days a week. We look forward to welcoming you to share the experience.
