Little Mozambique is at temporary premises in the White House Centre, off the Main Road. No huge fanfare: they just opened again. The food is delicious. The menu is not huge. But it is a very delightful restaurant.

We have eaten at the restaurant a few times, both in Howick and at their new premises in PMB. It's always a great meal. The staff are genuinely nice folks, the owners are always around. We love Portuguese food so it's a win-win.

Little Mozambique was born in December 2010 as a 40 seater eatery and has since expanded to 140 seats in four years. The Little Mozambique staff have all worked with Jorge at different stages of his career and have followed him back to Little Mozambique. Well worth the wait!
