The Maputo Fish Market experience is certainly authentic and ethnic. You can't beat the quality of the seafood. Its the best in Maputo. Choose any of the stalls. Mind blowing taste and quality. That however is where the good part ends. The harassment from hordes...More

For me, best attraction in the city! It's simply amazing :) try and go there in the afternoon ( 1 pm onwards) because during the morning people are busy installing their stalls. You can go there and just select the fish you want to eat...More

We were looking forward to a meal at the fish market, expecting seafood cooked to perfection, generous quantities and reasonable prices. In fact we waited over an hour for the food (and it was far from rush hour at 2-3pm on a weekday), the fried...More
