I've never been to Mozambique, but if this is the food you'll find there... I'm booking a ticket immediately... hang on, wait a second, no need for that. Simply pop out to Carla's in Muizenberg and experience the most delicious, generous, taste bud explosion of fabulousness this side of Beitbridge. This is without doubt the best tasting prawns I've ever eaten, and the intimate venue is just ideal. I'll definately be back, and I'm dreaming about these prawns from the stoep of my Klein Karoo farm.

Small unpretentious restaurant serving outstanding prawns fad some other Portuguese dishes. Carla is the genuine article and takes great pride in her restaurant and food. If you're in Muizenberg do go to Carla's for a good meal.

After my girlfriend talking about this place for years finally we went and it lived up to what she had told me. Anytime I'm in Cape Town I'll def come back

We were disappointed. Too many of the prawns were over cooked and therefore stuck to their shells and there wasn't enough peri peri sauce to put on the dried out prawns. We used to come often but this was not good enough for a restaurant that specializes in prawns

Perhaps reading all the excellent reviews on this restaurant left me with high expectations
The prawns looked big but by the time the heads were removed, there wasn't much left. Considering the price charged - R115 for 8 or R155 for 12, I found it to be on the pricey side. However, the sauce that it was prepared in was very tasty.
