Really a disappointing experience. The food is overpriced. We paid 350, 5 euros, just for the bread. You can buy yourself the fish and give to the restaurants for cooking. You will pay double price and get average quality. We were overcharged for everything and...More

I enjoyed the walk-through the market, seeing the variety of fresh sea fishes. We also enjoyed the lobster dish we ordered for lunch in one of the restaurants there. The hawkers are annoying at times, when they come into the restaurant areas. The security offiers...More

Lunch was organised for us as part of the business trip; you can choose your own, fresh fish at the fish market and then ask one of the surrounding establishments to prepare the fish according to specifications. It's a unique experience but can be fairly...More

My mother, a resident of Maputo and I went. We were accosted by parking "guides" and the various restaurant "guides" got aggressive and fought among themselves. I felt uncomfortable and unsafe. I literally had to scream at a group of these guides to calm them...More
