friendly neighborhood spot, nice ethnic decoration, tasty simple food, not too expensive... perfect for a weekly meeting and chat with friends or solo... short on space, what makes it somehow exclusive.

By Luanda standards, this is a cheap restaurant. Is is located right in front of EPIC Sana, and it is really small. The food is good but a bit greasy.

Cervejeria Tendinha was right around the corner from my hotel (the Skyna) and right across the street from the 5-star hotel Eden Sana Luanda. I had several good meals there, had several opportunities to share tables with locals, and found the service friendly and helpful. Please take your business to Tendinha -- you won't regret it. Prices (for Luanda) are... More

Small restaurant with several rows of tables on pavement very popular drinking place for locals and expats including customers of epic Sanaa & tropica who prefer the atmosphere and the prices here. Only down side you are on pavement try to avoid outside seats as drunks have been known to steal drinks or anything lying. For some reason it closes... More

Local and convenient located just oposite the road from the Epic Sana hotel, nice mix of guests but the food.... grilled fish turned out to be a soft and greasy fried thing, rather tasteless and not at all served in an appetizing way. Looked through the winelist, the first they did not have, they recommended another one which was fine.... More

Just across the road from the Epic Sana hotel and less than two minutes from the Skyna Hotel this friendly cafe is perfect from escaping the clinical atmosphere and high prices of the hotels. Popular with friendly locals and expats it serves local dishes and international staples such as steak, egg and chips. Portions are decent and for Angola the... More

authentic food, a geniune experience inspired by the Angolan culture, and very friendly staff. Carlos, the waiter always makes sure that I am satisfied and that everything is up to my expectations. I dine here almost everyday when I am in Luanda.

Tendinha is located on Luanda's main drag near 3 large hotels: Tropico, Skyna and the newly-opening Epic Sana. Food is served in good portions and is healthy enough. Draught beer is palatable, service is surly and under-welcoming but reasonably efficient. Toilets could do with proper and regular cleaning but the building is a bit neglected. Owing to the heavy use... More
