“Great Food, Big Price”
Reviewed 21 June 2012

My fiancé and I have been doing the rounds on most of the nice Luanda restaurants of late and we both really enjoyed Pimms. It doesn't look much from the outside (as with most places in Luanda) but the inside is really quite cosy if not a little dated looking. The service was good and they will immediately bring you appetisers (bread and meats) but they will charge you for this. We shared one starter (fish carpaccio which was excellent!) and had a main each (fish stew and fish with garlic and potatoes) Both were really good and actually quite generous in size. We also shared a bottle of wine and the total bill come to just over US$200 It has to be said though, the service was spot on the the food was definitely good quality. I can see why it is highly rated. The only reason I marked it down slightly is because of the price tag.

“In Luanda, the best to date”
Reviewed 13 June 2012

I have visited most of the top rated restaurants in Luanda recently and Pimms stands out.

The facade is understated but the decor within is welcoming and cosy with one half of the restaurant taking a modern look and the main area being more traditional. All areas are very clean. The staff are very attentive and some speak good English (although my Portuguese is coming on).

Menu is 2/3rds fish but still a good for red meat eaters. As you sit down a basket of bread and pllate of ham is brought to the table (charged AOA12,000 each). We shared the fish carpaccio and it was 1st class. Mains are also generous, the fish stew and grilled grouper with baked potatoes are both reccommended. The desert and cheese trolley looked fantastic but we were full!

We'll be back....
