If you want to eat fish, I definitely recommend you to go to La Vigia! It's not a chique restaurante, but the food it's very good!

Very traditional place to eat fresh grilled fish, good price and quality of food. The service is not high standard but is not bad either. Overall, good place to have lunch or dinner if you are looking for a nice and simple place to eat.

A must go if you are in Luanda. You choose the fish firstly, and then they grill it perfectly. Prices are also good, average for a regular restaurant in Luanda. They serve ginguba as a starter (toasted peanuts), so I recommend you ask for a...More

If you want to have the best fresh grilled fish in the city of Luanda this is a must. Everyday fresh fish grilled with perfection. Also meat is very good, always grilled in charcoal. The place needs some attention in terms of confort and facilities.

This is my go to place for excellent grilled fish. Especially the grouper is world class. Try the prawns, octopus and even some of the meats. Big wooden tables that you sometimes have to share with others which keeps it convivial.

Just try the grilled "garoupa" and some seafood, and you'll be in heaven. Don't miss the peanuts ("ginguba") with draft cold beer. This is the best place to eat grilled fish in Luanda, for sure!

Don't be fooled by the driveway entrance or casual appearance, this is one of the best restaurants in Luanda for grilled seafood. The choco and garupa are simply the best! Has always been cooked to perfection and can't go wrong with the garlic butter.
