Rio Seco is a small neighborood restaurant in Maianga, that looks like a small shop from the outside. We were surprised to discover the inside is quite new and modern, and it’s with renewed enthusiasm that we ordered our dishes.
Unfortunately, the waiting was very long (over an hour), barely acceptable if it wasn’t for the pleasant discussion the luanda-nightlife team had about NGOs in Angola, thanks to our special guest Ms R.
By the time the food was on our plates, we were so hungry that our first impression was that fine dining had been served. A few bites later we started to slow down on the eating, realizing that we didn’t really enjoy our dishes.. I wouldn’t say it was bad, but it was miscooked. In the end, we were quite disappointed by Rio Seco. The only positive thing I observed was that the waitress was wearing a Christmas costume and she was funny (if I remember correctly).
