French flair with local produce. We have lunch there once a year. Always magnificent. Food is great, service and ambience unbeatable. It's pricey but worthit. Be sure to book in advance

I will start off saying that so far this is the best restaurant i’ve tried in 4 months of living and traveling through mozambique, I say this as an Italian and trust me this place is up to European standards. The staff is very professionale...and the owner is also super nice and professional. The food was great and the desserts where outstanding. this is the perfect restaurant for any occasion and its right on the beach, 100% recommended if you are staying in tofo or near.More

what a surprise to meet such a lost restaurant on a beach in mozambique. Here, everything is beautiful, everything is good, the people are friendly, they give you advice on addresses for the rest of your trip. The setting is idyllic and the dishes are...exceptional. Everything is perfect. Be careful, this is a restaurant for the Lucnh. They close at 6 p.m.More

We wanted to spend the day at green turtle, but ending up leaving in 15minutes. Didn’t feel like we were welcome, couldn’t choose our own table, they asked us for reservation even though the restaurant was completely empty and only had one table reserved…ordered coconut...water that wasn’t even good and so we left.More

The meals we had at the Green Turtle are amongst the best we have had anywhere - stylish and delicious dishes featuring fresh local seafood. Not cheap (for the area) but highly recommended for a night to remember.

Another quest for lunch in Mozambique brought us to the Green Turtle Restaurant at the Bay View Lodge, Barra, Inhambane. Sadly, along the road most places are derelict and even this one looks nothing like the pictures on some of the websites. Nevertheless, it was...a stunning place with seating right on the beach. The whole feeling is sea, sand, sun. The menu has a fair selection and as is always important, the beers were ice cold. We had toasted chili coconut strips as snacks with the beer - an excellent combination. The fish was fashionably plated and tasted fresh and delicious. The service was good - they actually understood English quite well, and the faces were smiling and friendly. You can pay with a credit card - not always possible in this country! Take care, you might want to book into the lodge for an afternoon nap after lunch here!More
