While working in Luanda, my colleagues introduced me to Esplanada Grill. You can eat out on the desk facing the beach or eat inside to enjoy the buffet. When we eat outside to enjoy the view we usually order a mixed tray of meats

Dishes from a very good international kitchen and of course the barbecue... More

In a city like Luanda you expect high prices but some places are simply not good value for money. This is one of them where the food is very good but when the bill arrives you ask yourself if it was worth it. The buffet was large with good variety and the meat was excellent. Service not great but acceptable... More

Esplanada grill has an extensive cold and hot buffet. It is the best rodizio place in town. During the weekends the place is very popular, a live band plays while you enjoy a good meal with a huge variety of drinks.

Though lots of places might offer an all you can eat buffet, this is an actual all you can eat rodízio with waiters bringing freshly grilled meats on skewers to your table until you can stomach no more!

It's a Brazilian steakhouse with the intimacy of an open air market. The restaurant is a huge, loud open area brightly lit. The food is meh; with the desserts looking lovely but lacking taste.
