Was like being in a time warp from 7 years ago. Food still good, had the beef on hot rock for old times sake. But found service on a Wednesday night to be really slow even though restaurant was no where near full!

I lived in Mozambique in the early 90's and one of my favourite restaurants was a barrack in the Feira popular, named "Mbango Fenix"; the Portuguese owner/cook and a couple of waiters were the personnel, but it was enough to serve a very good garoupa,...More
