“Mediterranean Escape”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2012

A dramatic entrance past armed soldiers (because it is in the grounds of Luanda Fort) which opens out into a street that could be anywhere in the Med. you step down into a lovely stone courtyard surrounded by an aged Portuguese building that houses the kitchens etc.

I was going to try the fish dishes but they had all been sold out (a good sign that they are fresh) so resorted to the pepper steak as recommended by our hosts. It was cooked as requested, juicy and served in plenty of homemade pepper sauce with a good kick. The frites were also well cooked and helped mop up the great sauce. Service is good for Luanda and the kitchen looked really clean when I sneaked a look.

To order wine you go into the bar room and point atone of the random selection, let face it most of us buy by the label anyway!

I'll be going back.

NOTE: My ratings are based on my other Luanda reviews.

“Top Pepper Steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2012

Reservation is recommended. Pepper Steak is my favorite dish around the world, and they are on top 10. Service is slow, there is no wine list, and other dishes are not exceptional

Ever since the management changed, the price has gone up, the time to serve (wich was always bad) has gone up, the servings have gone down and the quality too.
