O Madeirense Mar

Reviewed By StraightTalker28

As my title suggests, I'm quite a fan of O Madeirense. The premise of the restaurant is very simple: big blocks of meat are brought to you on skewers, and that's about it. They have a basic collection of starters - garlic bread, calamari (terrible, overcooked, rubber), some potato croquette style things among others. They're all pretty average, which is fine because this place is all about the meat. Here's how it works: there is no menu, the only option is beef on a skewer, which you can request in various states of done-ness, which they actually follow through with, possibly the only restaurant in Angola that does. Without fail - and I have now been here three times - the meat is perfectly seasoned, perfectly cooked, piping hot, juicy, flavoursome, and overall perfect. I don't know where they source their meet, but I would love to meet the butcher! For a meat lover, O Madeirense is pretty much perfect.I don't know what the desserts are like, but as far as I can tell dessert is a slice of cake from a fridge. I'm sure they don't make them themselves and who knows how long they sit there, so I wouldn't recommend one of those. Besides, if you still have room for dessert, you have not done the restaurant justice.So why not five stars? Well, the starters are average at best, but the biggest factor is the service, which is so bad that it is entertaining. The restaurant is run by an extremely harassed Portuguese couple but the local waiters are absolutely useless. if you want absolutely anything outside of the norm of meat and a beer, it completely falls apart. It takes an eternity, they don't understand or forget, or need to check with someone else first, or lose something or whatever it may be, and the whole system completely grinds to a halt. It's comically awful, even if you request something like a fork. However, this needs to be overlooked and dismissed, because it does not detract from the otherwise fantastic restaurant, and worth visiting again and again.

Luanda Grill

Reviewed By AnaSofiaV_12

Hi like it.Everything about the place I like it... Best place for grill food in Luanda, the prices are basically the average of the city (bit expensive). The cocktails are good, a good selection of wine, perfect for friends, and couples, not very "family".Love love love

Was recommended this place by some coworkers stationed in Luanda. Decent prices, good food and excellent service. Only tried the pizzas, which were thin, Italian-style made.

Assador Lookal

One of the most expensive and best steak restaurants in the capital of Luanda. It is located on Ilha do Cabo (despite some maps showing it elsewhere) directly on the beach looking west, so it is excellent for sunset dining, but considering that sun sets early in Angola.

Kimbo do Soba

Reviewed By KrysMD

The restaurant belongs to a lodge of the same name, which sports a decor of a bush lodge. The menu is comprehensive and the choice of meat and fish (yes, fish!) is very good. To be honest, the meats were much better than the fish. The restaurant also did buffet lunches, which were excellent value. The personnel is exceptionally good looking, friendly and attentive. There is also a bar. I visited for both lunch and dinner.

Were there for a business Lunch… Good options for starters (including few sushi varieties) - Unfortunately everything was cold. Main course you have mainly meat and poultry options only. No Fish. You can have several options for meat. Desert options were very average. Nice interior. Plenty of space inside and outside. Can accommodate large groups. Service was ok (I believe we were very lucky this time with the service). Pricing is OK.In short, to me, a great place for meat lovers.

La Vigia

Reviewed By EricSmd

This little hidden away gem has good fish and is a popular local spot. We ordered a big grouper which we split amongst our large group. It was perfectly cooked. The large prawns on skewers were over cooked and stuck to the shell. The beer is nice and cold. There is a back room that is air conditioned and highly recommended. This restaurant is down an alley and it seems very wrong trying to find the entrance. Go with someone who has been before. You pick out your various seafood to eat from the front and they grill it up for you and bring it to the table. Nice place.
