Casbah is in a great spot on the beach and the service was fab. Compared to other restaurants around Vilanculos it is fairly expensive, but the food is delicious and the views over the ocean gorgeous.

While the staff try their best, this place is just not there yet. For a drink on the beach, this place is lovely. One of the only places in Vilankulos where you are on the beach. Food options however are poor. Average for meat eaters, terrible for vegetarians...and it's expensive for what you get!

Thank you for taking the time to review the Casbah restaurant.I agree that Our vegetarian menu does need some work. We do however have a wide selection of meat dishes. To list ;Steak-pork chops--ribs- prego- hamburger and various chicken dishes. More

Good ambiance and good food (when it finally arrived!) Nice bar with tables by the sand and a small dancefloor in the premises.

Tricky place to get too but we'll worth it..the food is a little better than the hotel restaurants in the area and priced around the same,and of course you wait over an hour for mains..but its and right on the beach so your table in plonked on the beach sand..Worth one visit at least.

What a top spot. We had one lunch, 3 breakfasts and 3 dinners at Casbah and every one was great. Great staff and management. Super chilled spot next to the Kite Surfing Centre. The fresh fish (Sierra?) was delicious. So too the Dressed Crab and the Tempura Prawns and Prawn Rissoles. There was a band on our last night and... More

The best place for R&R's and to chill out on the Beach. The staff are friendly and the service is excellent. The Tampura Prawns are the best I have ever had - highly recommended.

Visited Casbah for a lovely relaxed lunch on the beach. Their tempura prawns and king prawn special are a must, wouldn't recommend the crumbed calamari. They really went out of their way to assist with creating a simple meal for fussy children and provided a cooler box stashed with M2's on ice. A good visit when in Vilanculos.
