Popular with families on weekends, this place could be one of the jewels on the Maputo restaurant scene. While it does have the advantages of a formidable view across the bay and an adjacent playground, unfortunately it also suffers from bad organisation and mismanagement. The menu is most uninspired, and prices relatively high for standard fare such as toasts, salads,... More

I have reviewed the place some years ago, highlighting some obvious shortcomings. Unfortunately, nothing has changed since! The location is really what keeps customers coming back. It is certainly neither the service nor the food! I waited exactly 20 minutes before a waiter accepted to ask me what I wanted to drink and another 10 minutes to receive the menu.... More

Cafe Acacia has a lovely location in a private park with a view across Maputo Bay-- that is the main reason to come here, as well as the playground for kids. The menu is fairly small but fine; vegetarian options are somewhat limited. Lots of drinks options. All rather pricey for Maputo, though!

Just across the street from the Hotel Cardoso, this great cafe has both indoor and al fresco seating. The view over the city is great. The coffee is delicious as the food is better than average. The cafe is in a safe area and almost lets you think that Maputo is a lovely place (it's not). But this cafe is... More

The nice park and calm atmosphere make this a great place for having a martini or glass of wine in the evening, while reading a book. I also had coffee and cheesecake here and they were both great as well. The salade I ate was a bit less nice - a bit watery because of rising, I guess.

Nice place if you are coming with kids - there is playground. Amazing sea view as well. The coffee is rather average - too sweet and weak, but OK, you could take tea instead. The staff was quick and friendly.

This is a great place to take visitors to Maputo or to have a casual family lunch. There is a little playground for the children and a fantastic little library Livro Aberto. The views over Maputo Bay are great from here as well, and it is a convenient place to have a meal when visiting the Museum of Natural History.
