The interior design is really lovely and it's a romantic setting for a fancy date. The food presentation is excellent but it belies the quality of the food which is somewhat pretentious. The fish can be OK. Come here for the decor rather than the meal.

The place looks great with a dedicated cocktail bar and excellent food options. The portions a pretentiously haut cuisine small and as such a bit overpriced, but generally it's an excellent place!

Nikki's House, Luanda

We, a five member group were there on a Friday night for Dinner…Was booked in advance to avoid the complications in getting the table. restaurant located in Alvalade. From its outside doesn’t look like a restaurant. Need to press the calling bell to open the main door. It’s a small house modified into a restaurant. few couches are available at the front and back side. Very nice interior. very good place for a private conversation or for a business dinner. On the upside a small library is available for the book lovers/readers.

Their menu is very small and simple with cocktails and fusion food.

We had some non alcoholic cocktails and fresh mixed fruit juice (Sumo tropical)..in juice we asked them to add ginger as well…that was fantastic.

For starter we had Camarao ao Alho (prawns with Garlic ), Choquinhos de Terra (Lula in sweet sauce ) and Salda de frango com Quinoa(chicken salad with kinoa). all were very good.

Main dish – Grilled Garoupa, Salmon and Coxa de frango. Salmon was exceptionally good…

Dessert, we tried, Peti gateu, Mosso de Maracuja and Crème Brulle com gengibre. only Crème brulle com gengibre was good…rest were average.

All dishes got a very fancy names..Presentation was Good…service was very good. Portions were too small…reasonable priced compared to the quality and quantity.

Much recommended for a dinner… No parking available…better to have a driver.

Great front entrance, great decor ... But, the service seems confuzed, and the portions were reduced. The Nikkis beef was 3 small portions of minute steak and some fries. Potential is there if you change the cook and staff. Gormet snack, at best.

This place really has a unique feel and ambience, especially in Angola.
The restaurant itself is gorgeous and feels quite upmarket.

Our food was very good.....not a very wide variety to choose from, but what we ordered was really good and tasty.

Service was also acceptable, could have been a bit better, but acceptable.

This is a good place for dining out with friends, for business dinners and for a romantic dinner.
