Pizza was very small and an extra topping (a few canned mushrooms) costed 150 MZN per person! Ridiculous price, a total rip off, never again!

Thank you for your comment. Did you mention your concerns with the owner who was there when you were? We would prefer you to leave satisfied than not say anything but resort to negatively impact a business which has been closed close to 2 years due to Covid with a bad review.

Food was tasty, but just didn't come together so well with presentation and timing. They have lots of menu options, and do warn that it may take time because they make it up fresh for you. Prices were fair to above average. It was nice enough to try something new from our regular haunts. Worth it just for the milkshakes menu :)

Big disappointment! Got a recommendation of Dinos grilled barracuda, but no fish available during our visit. Got oily, tastless samosas for starter, not-so-fresh shrimps with oily fries. Service wasn't friendly either. One visit was one too much.

Sorry for your unfortunate experience, we did not have fish for 2 days as we keep fresh seafood and no fish was available. Did you bring any of your concerns to the attention of the manager as she was there from open to close. Samoosas are prepared fresh to order and deep fried so likely to have oil same goes with chips. This season we were fortunate to have very friendly seasonal waiters so not sure who served you as yours is the first complaint we received. If you took the time to write on tripadvisor you could have taken a minute to inform us and we could have resolved any of your grievances ... had we known

This place is amazing! A super tasty cocktail called Call Me a Chapa. My buds level of liquid courage was super high after just 1 and then started having a chat with the owner. Really lovely lady, the space is super chill, and the waiter was really friendly! Definitely going back

Thank you for your visit, it was wonderful chatting to you about your experiences at Dinos and the making of Dr. Ryan a popular cocktail that was on the menu for about 18 years.

Definitely our first choice of restaurants and bars in Tofo! The atmosphere is great and the music even better! Swift and friendly service . If you compare the prices to other close-by restaurants it isn’t that pricey - actually quite affordable.

Fantastic location, great ambience and good food. Dino's is a Tofo legend. Every vistor to Tofo should go at least once.

We just stopped for a drink, but the kids got sand toys and they enjoyed themselves very much while we had a R&R and 2M

If you want the coldest beer, scrumptious food and great beach view in a truly Mozambican beach bar/restaurant when in Tofu, then Dino's is the place you are looking for! The atmosphere is fantastic with lively music, the selection of food, drinks and cocktails are scrumptious, thirst quenching and enjoyable, served by friendly happy staff, thanks Dino Team.

Wonderful family owned and operated beach bar and restaurant just north of town on Tofo beach. Have wonderful fresh juices and smoothies as well as tons of refreshing tropical cocktails. Loved the gin shake, so delicious also they serve good food as well!

Was so good we came two nights in a row. Went on NYE and had an amazing few pizzas to share between us. You can definitely tell the owner is Italian as they were yum! New Year's Day we were all feeling worse for wear so the only option was to go back for pasta this time and it was amazing!!! Get the fresh pasta as it's beautiful. Lovely place, lovely vibe and lovely staff!

Walked out here one day to try a drink and a pizza; they were both overpriced and not so great. The place has a really neat look to it and tables that stretch out to the beach; it was mostly empty when we went. The owner was around, was very friendly - but they clearly need a better cook! :/

Morning Karuma Thank you for your review. I am sad to see the negative feelings expressed here as I was there when you visited and you chose not to mention either one to me. Unfortunately prices are structured around costs, overheads and tax bracket a restaurant of this size falls under unlike local shacks we employ many staff and need to gaurantee we can pay them. Hope we get to see you again and if you experience any problems take a minute to let us know so that we can address your concerns immediately
