“Engaging meal at a premium”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

I recently visited the Zambi restaurant in Maputo on the scenic marginal for dinner with a colleague.

I was impressed by their meal selection and the wine options.

However, the pricing was a somewhat steep relative to other local restaurants.

“Superb”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

this restaurant is absolutely superb for Mozambique. it has a fine dining experience, the service was excellent. great choices of wines (lots of South African ones to choose from). we had platters of seafood and the fresh lobsters, prawns were to die for. considering the size and quantity the price is very reasonable. if in Maputo make this restaurant a must go too!

“Over-rated venue”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

When first arriving I was quite impressed by the number of people here however the main meal of steak was a thorough let down. I could hardly even find the "300g" steak on the plate. Dessert was good but unknown wine list as it was never offered. Service came sporadically at best. Seek attention here more often and the experience may be better but I was unimpressed.
