Fortaleza does not offer many options for food, but it is a must for whoever is visiting Luanda. The restaurant is located in the old fort of the city and offers a beautiful garden. It reminds of old colonial times. Recommended to try the pepper steak which makes this place so popular. Booking is recommended, as it is a very popular spot.

An unusual entrance, this is in the grounds of the Luanda Fort and everyone have to pass armed soldiers, but after entering the restaurant it gives you more of a "in the gardens of some friends feeling". You eat outside and it is wise to remember a jacket in the winter months, Luanda does not have a freezing winter but it is not warm either!
Service was rather quick, limited english but you get by with limited portuguese :) Excellent fish dish (grouper with seafood sause and topping), Lamb chops were good while the steak was a bit boring. Nice appetizers came as complementary.
Informal and nice place to eat - food good but not exceptional.

Great little restaurant hidden in the fort. The waitress had zero English and they had no English menus, so brush up on your Portuguese before you go.
Had a great Tortilla starter which turned out to be an omelette. Main was a Grouper fish stew/soup. Abs great.
Get the ceiling in the boys loos!
