    Mozambique is one of my very most favourite restaurants in Southern California including Beverly Hills and all of the upscale restaurants in LA and San Diego and Orange County. It is banded down my favourite. I’m so excited that there is a renovation going on. It’s gonna be bigger and better more more things and I just can’t wait to see what the new changes are love love love this place.

    We love the decor and atmosphere at Mozambique and have been there many times. There is currently a renovation going on and we were seated downstairs in the dining room next to the Parrot Room patio. It was Father's Day and 5pm, so not too crowded. Our waitress was very kind and friendly but after waiting for a very long time we noticed that surrounding tables that were seated long after us (the one next to us came in at least 30 minutes after we were seated) were served their meals. Our waitress apologized and checked our order - apparently some "problem" with the printer in the kitchen (?). Umm.. Ok. We asked if we could maybe get some bread while we waited - didn't receive and stopped the manager who was walking through and advised him what was happening - asked again for some bread, which we received about 10 minutes later. We finally were served our dinners after having been seated for Over An Hour!! The food was good but not the same standard we've received in the past and seemed like it might have been sitting in the kitchen for a while; warm, but not hot. They offered one small bread pudding with a tiny cup of ice cream to go - (a one-person dessert for three people)!! Very disappointing, to say the least.

    Food was mediocre at best. Would have been better off at something tried and tested. Didn’t get a seat with a view so was not worth coming there since the food was so average. Honestly I can think of so many better options.

    Great place to dine if you’re looking for a view of the ocean - especially at Sunset. The rooftop is in high demand and unfortunately most of the tables are 4-tops or more ( unless you sit at the bar). Good service and tasty food.
