Although the setting is great, the service and the food here was absolutely disappointing. We waited for an hour and 45 minutes for our food to arrive and after numerous attempts enquiring how much longer we would have to wait, our waiter's attitude and lack of apology left much to be desired. Overpriced for the standard of food and shear... More

Went out for some seafood. All was average not the best I have tasted but there was nothing wrong with anything on our plates. So for a nice well kept restaurant try it. Just don't expect top food and you will be happy

Friends and I went here for lunch. The service was terrible and no one understood English so ordering was very difficult. The food was disappointing and the crayfish has sand in it so we had to keep sending it back. They have a pool so we decided to just have a drink and swim to find out when getting the... More

Had drinks here a couple of times before, however first time for lunch. Despite the language barrier, our waitress was great. On top of everything and very much on point, no need to wait for so much as a napkin. Had the crab (and had great fun in the process) which was delicious. The ice cream was divine - ordered... More

Sagres used to be the best eating place in Maputo, however the service and food quality has changed. I still love the place though, beach front and good people.

I often go to Sagres because of their nice location and excellent Portuguese seafood. My favourite is their 2 person seafood plate. A treasure of crayfish, crab, fish, clams, prawns, calamari in a juice that you love to soak up with some garlic bread...

This is one of the oldest restaurants in the city and well known for shellfish. Been here several times and food is good, but service is terrible. Always takes to long to get drinks, starters and mains. At the end you are tired of being waiting for your food!

Loved the prawn cakes. Best. Starter. Ever. Was disappointed in their chilli. Was not spicy at all. Good service. Terrible salad. Awesome vibe and great location.
