Absolutely stunning beach views! Great food, I love Portuguese cuisine the prawns, chicken delicious and fresh. The place was clean and very safe. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The weather was perfect, had a magnificent mini vacay.

We met up with some friends to enjoy our last breakfast (for now) in Bilene. The dishes are averagely priced. Although the service was a bit slow, the coffee was good and we really enjoyed our breakfast overlooking the lagoon. You will truly be spoiled...with a great view!More

Visited the restaurant with my family on the 3rd of January for a meal and was surprised with Calamari with awful odor and no make it right policy from the restaurant. Sad!

Waiters did not speak English. We had a coke then left. I really would not recommend anywhere where English was not spoken. Mozambique has to understand and appreciate where most of their customers come from - South Africa so staff should be given basic English...lessons at least.More

One of the oldest restaurants/resorts in Bilene. It is really well located. While the staff is very friendly, the place has that "faded-away" feel... the beach right in front is kept relatively clean, but beware of broken glass bottles and other debris. Food is nothing...special.More

The perfect default beach in Bilene. It is very busy with watercraft, one needs to be aware of comings and goings of the boats. The location is great and offers great views of the lagoon.

The place has potential, but seems the best days of the complex were in the past. Some renovations are required. Food was acceptable. One of the few places that sells wine by a glass.

Well, the complex it’s not a 5 star but the view compensates a lot! You sleep there for 10€ (sharing with other 3 friends, in my case), the rooms are cleaned and have all the necessary and basic things to overnight. The sunrise there it’s...worth to appreciate and the restaurant/coffee also has good offers. The beach is calm and almost all for you 🙂 But once staying at Palmeiras go to the Cossa beach, it’s some kms away but simply beautiful!More

The restaurant is in a beautiful location overlooking the lagoon and the staff very friendly. We had 2 starters which were really good so decided to order a seafood platter for two for mains. BIG mistake! The platter comprised of 2 x crayfish (rubber fish)...and some calamari strips which you could easily have used as an eraser ! The prawns were totally over cooked and tough and the line fish so hard we could hardly cut through it. To add to this the whole platter was cold! When we told the waitress that it was totally not up to standard she apologised but that was it. Needless to say we hardly consumed any of it but still had to pay for the platter which was unacceptable. The seafood were clearly cooked from frozen so no freshness there which we initially asked about before ordering. I will most certainly NOT recommend eating seafood at this restaurant.More

For a small daily fee access is granted which then allows you to park safely, have access to the lagoon and make use of the restaurant and facilities. the beach is not crowded and you have relative peace from hawkers. The food chicken and fries...is good so good for when catering is a must every day. the beach is not very tidy which can be improved upon. The bar service is a big plus on hot thirsty daysMore

Facing the lagoon, the complex restaurant offers indoor as well as outdoor sitting. The decor is a little out of date but the food is delicious, especially the seafood platter. The service is both prompt and friendly. An address to remember when in Bilene!

I think whether fresh or frozen fish is served is all weather dependant. The rougher the weather the more difficult to get fresh fish. Our meal was good and the fish was fresh. The food especially the seafood is generally... More
