Caribe Restaurant (On Ilha, next to Chill Out)

Caribe Restaurant (On Ilha, next to Chill Out)

If only that place wasn’t so expensive, that would be great! The setting is really nice, especially during summer, with a view on the gold sand beach and the blue sea.The menu is diverse but my personal favourite is the langoust with maracuja cream for dessert. Expect to pay around 4000 kwanzas for the main […]

Coconuts Restaurant (On Ilha de Luanda)

Coconuts Restaurant (On Ilha de Luanda)

Coconuts Restaurant is located on a large open area towards the end of Ilha. As expected it has its own private beach on the ocean side which creates a magnificent setting. A few deckchairs are provided for that obligatory sunday afternoon rest! As for the menu; it is extensive and multi-lingual – English, French and […]

Dom Quixote/ Dom Q Club

Dom Quixote/ Dom Q Club

Dom Quixote is the “place to be” in Luanda many people told me. For Angolan people, it is where they can spot socialites, actresses and models, all dressed up to go out. Since I’m far from being a model and actor myself, and that I was wearing my stupid jeans and a bad haircut, I […]

Tamariz Restaurant (Ilha Luanda)

Tamariz Restaurant (Ilha Luanda)

Tamariz Beach Club is a restaurant on Ilha that you can easily spot from the road, about 800 meters before Chillout, on the ocean side. There is a huge sign in front a bit ridiculous, making it look as if we were about to enter Jurassik Park. They have local, portuguese and international food, a […]

Don Castellana Elio Restaurante

Don Castellana Elio Restaurante

This very good address seems to be new in Luanda as I never saw any mention of it anywhere. It is an Italian restaurant with an Italian chef and an italian owner just behind the AAA tower on Avenida Lenin. The interior doesn’t have so much decoration but it is very clean and completely new […]

Embaixador Restaurante (Ingombotas)

Embaixador Restaurante (Ingombotas)

The restaurant Embaixador is located in Ingombotas, near the Amilcar Cabral roundabout. It is a nice get away from exhausting Luanda as it is discreet and calm. The menu is quite original, with dishes such as deer steak or ostrich alongside more traditional ones like bacalhau. I went for the bacalhau mainly due to a […]

Asia Lounge Sushi Restaurant (Ingombotas)

Asia Lounge Sushi Restaurant (Ingombotas)

Asia Lounge is a brand new restaurant 150 meters down the Tropico Hotel (completely different from the restaurant Asia on Ilha!). It serves mostly Japanese food (sushi, sashimi, and others) but there are also some international food on the menu. All the dishes we were served were excellent (12 pieces of sushi for 2800 kwanzas, […]

ChillOut (Ilha de Luanda) – Updated post -

ChillOut (Ilha de Luanda) – Updated post -

The star of Luanda nightlife, ChillOut is the most famous place to eat and go out in the city, but I find it really awfully pretentious. Every weekend I swear I will never go to ChillOut again, but unfortunately, it is one of the only place in Luanda with house music so we end up […]

Mangais Luanda Club Restaurante (Near Sonangol building)

Mangais Luanda Club Restaurante (Near Sonangol building)

Mangais is an upmarket restaurant just about a hundred meters away from Sonangol’s new tower. Surprisingly, there is no carte but only an all-you-can-eat buffet costing a whopping 6000 kwanzas! Add some wine and the dessert, and you will easily spend a lot of money there… So the big question: Is it worth it? I […]

Hotel Presidente Luanda (Near the harbour)

Hotel Presidente Luanda (Near the harbour)

This week was again very tough on our wallet, with yet another high-end restaurant reviewed… The Hotel Presidente (ex-Le Meridien) is much less modern than its main rivals, Hotel Tropico and Hotel Alvalade, but I find it has much more charm and that the view, especially from the bar, is great. The restaurant has a […]
