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...

Located on the tiny stretch extending into the sea, the restaurant gives you nice view of the ocean. The seafood is fresh and quite a variety to choose from. The garlic bread along with sardines was the best, we ordered a fish pot which turned out to be pretty good. The fish pot was large, not sure if their potions... More

Nicely located with a beautiful view on the beach of Luanda. If you don't mind paying a hefty price (Luanda prices) for average quality of food and a great location you are in the right place.

Excellent seafood This is one of the places in Luanda that everyone seems to recommend, and I can certainly see why. It's a little pricey, but it was well worth the visit. Everything from the initial plate of garlic bread was delicious. We ordered a shrimp dish, as well as some clams and crab, and all of it was fresh... More

I haven't been disappointed in the visits I've made to Lookal in Luanda. Normally we have different options which are all very nice but last times there we got hooked by a fish, yes, normally it should be the other way around but the grilled Dorada is just excellent, all the times without exception. The place you need to go... More

Highly recommended for seafood lovers. Fresh ingredients, wide selection and incredible taste. The restaurant is on the pricy side but well worth every penny.

Situated on the Ilha with beach view, the staff was professional and the service quick. The variety of shell fish and its quality is great. So if you are looking for good food, this is the place to be.
