The food was really nice on the evening we ate there. Great cocktails too. Our service was very good although some friends have complained that it’s often slow.

Whilst I keep giving Mozambik Hillcrest another chance, after the previous unrealist price increase and now a further price increase shortly after, I cannot justify going there. The whole chicken is now R220 and it excludes a side. The same chicken with a side is...available for R129 at other well known portuguese restaurants, including a side. These prices are indicative of fine dining, which Mozambik is not. The chips being served are still oven chips and not real chips so if prices are going to increase astronomically, the quality of the food should at least reflect this.More

The manager lied to me when asked whether the line fish was fresh and not frozen a month ago when I was there. He guaranteed it was fresh Dorado but when I tasted the fish I knew it wasn’t fresh at all and asked again...- he still maintained it was fresh but I’ve subsequently found out that the Dorado season has only just started so he was clearly lying. The fish was terrible as frozen dorado always is. I’m advising everyone to avoid this place as it is disgraceful to be lied to by management in this way.More

So Mozambik has consistently been in the top 2 restaurants in Hillcrest. It’s been we while since we last went there so gave it another try. The food is average, steaks were tasty but the meat itself actually very tough. The seafood seemed a better...choice which was enjoyed. The service was erratic with empty drinks glasses standing for extended periods before we needed to flag down the waiter, restaurant was not full so no valid reason or excuse. My option but given the choice in the Hillcrest area I feel there are better options.More

I am a huge fan of their original mozambik thin cut chips. Brad from mozambik Hillcrest made a plan to organize these just for me (and I barely gave him any notice) .
