If you want to have the best fresh grilled fish in the city of Luanda this is a must. Everyday fresh fish grilled with perfection. Also meat is very good, always grilled in charcoal. The place needs some attention in terms of confort and facilities.

This is my go to place for excellent grilled fish. Especially the grouper is world class. Try the prawns, octopus and even some of the meats. Big wooden tables that you sometimes have to share with others which keeps it convivial.

Just try the grilled "garoupa" and some seafood, and you'll be in heaven. Don't miss the peanuts ("ginguba") with draft cold beer. This is the best place to eat grilled fish in Luanda, for sure!

Don't be fooled by the driveway entrance or casual appearance, this is one of the best restaurants in Luanda for grilled seafood. The choco and garupa are simply the best! Has always been cooked to perfection and can't go wrong with the garlic butter.

The place is a typical portuguese "tasca" very small, noisy, draft beer, peanuts...but the food is something else. The fresh fish you can choose at the entrance and then it is grilled to perfection with side orders like potato, and vegies that are included. The...More

What a pleasant surprise down an alley in the Luanda city centre to find this restaurant. Here fish is grilled over an open fire and presented to you as a tasty juicy perfectly prepared sumptuous dish. This is not about decor but about the food.
