This is the second outing to Lookal Mar for lunch. Ordered the lobster salad, crab starter and thick sliced squid. The food was fine but 3 of us contracted food poising which led to 3 days of illness. My youngest daughter was spared as she ate no seafood. Not impressed

I was very surprised by the Polvo à Lagareiro. I've never had very tender and nice octopus as this. This is a MUST TRY! It's my new favorite. The grill fish was really good also, while the grill tiger prawn was not great. It was dry. I like the jammon for the starter that they gave also. Overall, this is... More

Probably one the widest ranges of excellent quality seafood. You pay for it, especially as a lot of it is important, but you can sit right by the beach and enjoy a caipirinha or wood wine whilst eating your oysters, prawns or whatever you fancy really. Service can be quite decent though occasionally slow if it is busy.

The choice of sea food was great, but I didn't enjoy this restaurant as much as other places. It could be because I prefer red meat. However there is another Lookal next door that does a variety of meat - well something to try next time. Restaurant has a stunning view and is next to the beach. Service was good.

The prices are to high, startes are good, also the wine list is fair. It too more then 30 min to get our main courses and when arrived they were cold. Overall ... Overrated.

One of the best (and most expensive) seafood restaurants in Luanda and Ilha do Cabo. It is fitted beautifully and is very modern. It is directly on the beach overlooking sunsets.

Lookal Mar has the best selection of fresh fish and seafood of Luanda. It is pricy but you get excellent quality in return. You will enjoy your meal in this restaurant with a very relaxed atmosphere at the beachfront.

Good for your money when we are talking about eating seafood at good price. I love seafood and I don't like paying too much for something that I know I can get it for less with even better quality.

We went as a work group for lunch on a weekday. Service was great, and the view onto the beach was good. Unfortunately, it was a hot day, and there is no air conditioning due to having one side open to the beach. They did have a couple of big fans going. Even though I don't like fish, everything was...
