The whole fish is amzing. You have to try it. Don’t forget the Mozambiquen Pirri Pirri sauce. They make there own, the colour and taste is outstanding. Friendly staff and quick service.

10 out of 10! The level of service here is sublime. From when you walk in to when you leave the experience is magnificent. The menu was modern and fresh with a good hint of local food. It is a must visit!

This place is fantastic. The atmosphere and food was exceptional. When we were there on Sunday 30 September, they had a singer who entertained us and he was excellent!! This also added to our wonderful experience. 10 / 10 to our waiter Ofelio as well....More

Our dinner at this restaurant was a real treat. We had wonderfully fresh fish and our meal was well worth the slightly higher price. The service is friendly and efficient.

This place is lovely; casual in that you are welcome to come in straight off the beach, yet smart in its decor and finishing touches. The English style fish and chips was just as I hoped and the chicken curry was perfect and beautifully presented....More

Description
Cafe Pescador and the Reef Resort Venue are the new additions to Reef Resort in Praia de Xai Xai. Cafe Pescador has been drawing the crowds, especially those of a somewhat more sophisticated palate and culinary expectation since it opened its doors in December 2013. Seafood is the speciality and Reef Resort's fishing boat brings in the wonderful fresh daily catch from the rich ocean just meters away from the spacious 70-seater, double storey restaurant. Coupled with the abundant 'pantry' of seasonal sub-tropical fruit and vegetables, including home grown organic herbs, Cafe Pescador offers a unique dining experience. The tastefully decorated 100-seater Venue downstairs from Cafe Pescador is suitable for meetings, conferences, special occasion dinners and celebrations. Reef Resort is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, 7 days a week. We look forward to welcoming you to share the experience.
