It may take a while but it's worth it. Fresh and delicious food made as you order. People are very friendly and caring. The menu is diverse and the price is fair and accessible. It has Mozambican and Portuguese food. Diverse salads and grills. BTW... it's our 3rd time here.

Sombra’s is a completely unpretentious place offering authentic Mozambican cuisine and drinks at very reasonable prices. It was warm on this December evening, and the restaurant's lone fan didn't make much of a difference when it was finally turned on. The locals in town are naturally indifferent to the sultry heat, but we tourists sweated with decorum. The kitchen works s-l-o-w-l-y but methodically. Our two excellent caipirinhas (Brazilian drink) arrived after 15 minutes, and the main courses took about 45 minutes to be ready. Besides us, there was only a family of 4 present, so it's not as if the women in the kitchen were under stress. The food was of solid quality. Shrimp curry with coconut rice and grilled squid with the same side. The rice was a bit overcooked, the shrimp well done, and it was hard to discern the grilled flavor on the squid - but we had a sense that this is how Africans themselves would eat these dishes. Not refined, but not sloppy either, just straightforward. The prices are on the lower end compared to the city's more sophisticated restaurants.

I've been to Tofo many times but for some reason I've only ever bought sandwiches here for lunch (which is good too). Last night I ordered the Tuna and o wow! That was the yummiest fish I've ever had! Defs going back this week for more.

We waited 90 minutes for our food even though we only ordered grilled fish! Once it arrived it was tasty.

The 1/2 chicken, salad and rice or chips is the best chicken in Tofo if not everywhere! We had it twice the week we were there.

Awesome service, delicious food. Best place to eat sea food in Tofo with an unbelievable value for money We ordered the lobster and grilled calamari; both dishes were cooked and seasoned to perfection and the doses were more than generous !! Definitely recomend this place

Fresh food in the middle of Tofo. It’s not so famous as other bars but the quality of the food is excellent and the amounts are quite big. Always included with rice, vegetables and potatoes.

Just ask for the Camarão da trizinha and the lobster with chips. Just sayin. The only problem is the amount of time you wait to get served.

I was in tofo for few days with a friend of mine and we had the luck to find the right place to eat. Surrounded by a many restaurant with often only an English menu or offering only pizza, fries or stuff like that we were more than happy to find a place where we've been able to eat fresh and local dishes. The honesty of the waiter about the freshness of the products. The natural juice, the squid, the fish, if you have time go there you wont regret!!

Of all Tofo's little cabana-style restaurants, Sombras easily has the longest menu. This only gives you an indication of what the chef could prepare if all ingredients would be present at the same time - which they never are, obviously. The catch of the day is usually delicious, though, and my personal highlight was the peri peri chicken.
