Floresta Restaurant (Near Kinaxixi) – CLOSED

In Mediano / Average $$, Portuguese, Restaurants by Luanda NightlifeLeave a Comment

It looked much better in real than in the pictures!

We found this nice address after seeing a discreet sign “Foresta Restaurant” near Avenida Nasser. Though painted in flashy green, the place seems to be almost hidden and if it wasn’t for the big board “Restaurante”, we would never have guessed we could eat in there.

The interior is very clean and has charm. It’s too bad there are some bars at the windows, the main room would be much better without it. On the walls, there are many pictures of the owner, who, we learned there, is a famous Angola singer named Sabu Guimarães. On some photos, he can been seen with Bonga. It is actually him who welcomes us.

We order two basic dishes: fish (red snapper?) for me and steak for my friend (the cheapest items on the menu because we didn’t bring so much money with us) plus two Cokes plus two “couverts” (bread and butter), for a total of 4900 kwanzas. Otherwise, most dishes cost between 2000 and 3000 kwanzas. It was good but not so special.

The place is a bit expensive but it’s not that bad, and the portions are really generous (see the pictures, bad quality but it’s better than nothing). The service was very polite but we waited a bit too long to be served (around 20-25 minutes).
