We had a wonderful time tonight dining at Mozambique. We ordered an appetizer- an array of meats with pineapple and their peri-peri sauce. Delicious. My husband ordered the sea bass, I ordered the veggie pasta. Both were so flavorful, hot, and just enjoyable! Our server, Max, was very friendly- answered our questions, made drink suggestions, etc. We will definitely be back. Thanks, Mozambique, for a wonderful night out for these two tired parents of 3.

Food was good. Had a reservation, was seated in the back in a section with few occupied tables. Decor is tacky, where we were seated its a mixture between Spanish a African poorly done.

Made a reservation to see Al Holbrook in the Durban room. I was greeted and welcomed and quickly shown to a table. When I requested to move closer to piano my server was very helpful and accommodating. The food was great and the wine recommendation appreciated. The music was awesome!!! When he plays again we will be back!

With the arrival of the sun, the rooftop terrace was buzzing. Our party of 8 opted to sit on the deck below and had it mostly to ourselves. We could easily converse down the table while enjoying Mimosas and Bloody Marys with our Sunday Brunch.

This is a terrific, affordable, comfortable, place for a weekend confab. We'll be back!

We had reservations for 6 people, yet when we got there, they only had seating available if we wanted to pay an additional $40 per person. It was so loud one could not carry on a conversation. So we said no, so they sent us up to the rooftop, where it was outside and cold, and they had no seating available for a half hour. We were left to stand in a narrow walkway that the wait staff used. It was crowded in with extra chairs, tables and a mess of junk that they apparently had no place else to put. Also no heaters. We left and went to Dizz's As Is, and my guests were much happier with that environment and menu.

It was our anniversary. And the experience was awesome. The food was fantastic! Our server was excellent (though, to my shame, I’ve forgotten his name) I had the steak and lobster and she had the Chilean sea bass. Also, I had the BEST old fashioneds. Highly recommend this experience and will be back in the future.

The atmosphere was awesome, very fun. The wait staff was very attentive. We both got the filets with mashed potatoes, asparagus, and a side of mac n cheese. All of it was outrageously delicious. We will definitely be going back. Lived the live band.

Went there on Valentines Day so menu was limited. Was a little cool sitting in their covered and overhead heated outdoor courtyard, but was still very nice. Just an unusually cool evening. Service and atmosphere was great. Food was very good. Look forward to a summer return and sitting up on the open rooftop seating area at sunset.

We have wanted to try Mozambique in Laguna Beach for a long time. I think the name and the exterior right on PCH was not much of a incentive. We decided to go there for lunch on Valentines Day. What a pleasant surprise!
We were seated on the view level roof with bar and found a panoramic view of the Ocean. To top things off they have a simple lunch and brunch menu. The food was nicely presented and the taste was excellent. I would consider the menu price on the upscale side, but we will definetly go again. The service was excellent . They offer only Valet parking @ $ 7.00, but you can park right on the street by the restaurant where there is metered parking.

We enjoyed one of the best meals we have had in quite a while. Everything was exceptional from the service, recommendations, appetizers, entrees and dessert. We can't say enough about how we enjoyed it all. We will definitely be returning. The pork chops and the Chilean sea bass were incredible.
