A good place to go if you want a quick burger or salad etc. Not so much a restaurant although they do have WiFi and seating which is handy when your traveling.

It is not a bad place for those who want to grab a drink and have some light food, grilled chicken, if you want one of our staple food, "phaletshe", try Bafana meal, corn meal/maize meal served with grilled chicken or chicken livers. Free WiFi for customers, although the connection is slow.

When you live in Maun, you come here for the wifi and to charge batteries if you run out of power supply. And you better go when it s not busy, otherwise that wifi is slow. But as that is not the first aim of a restaurant, I better start commenting on the food. The food and service is only... More

Does exactly what is says on the door. Very much like a Nando's or any other of these chicken places. They do provide free wifi, and are conveniently located close to two supermarkets and a bank with ATM

How you can do such a bad job at hamburgers and chicken is beyond me. Food was undercooked,service was bad even for botswana . Came back because I forget something and wait staff was taking left over food and packing it up in take way boxes so they could take it home for themselves.

Barcelos is closely located to the airport which is great but the food isn't the best I've experienced from a Barcelos franchise. the food took ages to get done and it was dry.

A convenient chicken place right in the middle of Maun. Barcelos has reliable wifi and a variety of adapters that take a computer plugs from the UK, Europe and South Africa. The menu is like Nandos but probably a little better.
