I go there often for lunch, good quality food, for a decent price, good beers, wines, so da's and water. Inner air-conditioned space and nice cosy terrace, quite muzic. Next to the butcher, same family. Really "good plats du jour ", you have the choice...of 4 of them, each day different. Or a la carte if you like. Best place in town.More

It is a decent place to eat, the food is ok, the menu can fall in the category of “Average Portuguese restaurant “. At lunch time is oftenly visited by people on business for quick lunch and back to work..

Was with a group of people and ordered fried shrimp, picanha a Xeque, fish fillet and couple of local beers (laurentina preta, 2M and castle lite). The food was a bit oily specially the rice and fries, however, the service was great as they were...quick to process orders. As for the prices, well, let's say it's a bit pricey. And oh! It's bot Portuguese at allMore

This is as pub-like as exists in Quelimane. Of the three spaces in which to eat/drink/watch TV, go for the first room if you like a more intimate, bar experience. The food is nothing special, but stick to the 6-8 specials of the day, and...it's not bad (good value too). This is well-liked by local clients and it can get busy.More

This is pub food done well and quickly. The menu isn't terrible long or complicated, but it comes out much faster than other restaurants in the area.

A long-standing portuguese restaurant, it has some charm inside and then a standard outside bar vibe. The waitstaff is attentive. The food is fast and well done. The best thing is that every day the menu changes, so you will never be bored.

This is a nice bar restaurnat that offer the concept of portuguese food. Bun unfortunately the owners are not producing portuguese food anymore. Now is just local food. But is a good bar environment, no mosquitoes, clean.

This restaurant offers limited selection but everything on the menu is delicious! This visit we ordered the pork chops, and we were not disappointed. Their chips (french fries) are probably the best in Quelimane! Service is efficient, and the place feels like a European cafe.
