More expensive than your average Maputo restaurant, nice setting if you eat outside (inside is way too crowded, dark and smoky), good food and nice wine, but definitely overpriced for what you get.
A must try the crab chamossas.

Okay...we landed here by accident! Gasped at the food prices but decided to stay. Clams were a good starter choice, as well as the cute mini prego rolls. Due to the extravagant seafood prices, we had the peri peri grilled chicken - gourgeous. Surprising highlight? The chocolate mousse! It was divine!

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.

Nice restaurant, service, ambience, deco & food. The price was fair by South Africa standards. However the location doesn't suit the restaurnt it was dirty & smelly.

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!
