Best food ever! Not much more to add to that. Perfect prawns, clucking amazing chicken, terrific tuna, but ... to wait for almost two hours for your food; if it wasn't for the amazing vibe; you'd think it was stretching it a bit.

Enjoy a long lazy 6 course lunch in the pristine bush of the Nkumbe Wildlife Estate. This unique venue is a haven of tranquility but still offers up a memorable party (if the hammocks and swings don't seduce you into a state of slothfulness first) and a must do experience during your trip to Southern Mozambique. There is also a tented camp and upmarket, self-catering chalets nearby. The 50 seat conference venue combined with the Marula Shak is ideal for those special functions, weddings, conferences and team building events. It is also a great base from which to venture out to the myriad of activities in the area.
A wonderful evening with a difference. A great setting and a great concept with friendly staff and good food.

I had dinner with my friend and baby and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My 11 month old was being fussy so after our waiter took our order he carried her around during the whole meal and kept her entertained while we ate ! The food was simple but delicious , we were there on a very cold weekend so we even enjoyed delicious hot chocolates after our meal. Definately recommended.

The place was very busy due to peak season, the food was wonderful. Live music by Abby was the cherry on the top.

I was caught by the name so tried three samoosas which took ten minutes to prepare. The outside of all of them was hot the inside was still part frozen.
The Chuck Norris was as described insanely hot. The duck one wasn't quite as ducking felicious as deacribed. I figured there are better places nearby.

When in Ponta, a visit to Mango Cafe is mandatory. The menu is not very extensive, but the dishes we've tried (salads, wraps) are all very fresh and well-prepared with good use of fruits and veggies. The assortment of invigoration beverages is also top notch: juices, milkshakes, smoothies and virgin cocktails. Great rooftop location too with good view of the sea.

This restaurant had great food, they were very welcoming although it is at backpackers. It is a bit of a walk from the main beach/ town but it is well worth the walk.

FLORESTIMHA DO INDICO was one of the first private restaurant to open dors in Ponta de Ouro after the civil war. It concept combine local gastronomy and Portuguese food, particularly the delicious and unique seafood. It's in the front of Indian Sea.
We were the only people in the restaurant yet service was terrible. The waitress was grumpy rude and treated us like we were a nuisance. We waited 40 mins for our starter and a further 30 for very overcooked tiger prawns.
Skip this place - was a horrible experience.

This restaurant is one of the best maintained in Ponto and is always a winning choice when in the area.
The restaurant always has stock of what is on the menu (not guaranteed with most places in the area) and the inside Seating is air conditioned. The meals are fairly priced and there is a good variety available to choose from.
The resort has a lovely, clean pool which the kids swam in while we were waiting for our meals.
