Mozambique Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The experience was the best ever. The waiter was perfect. The food was incredible. For a set menu; it was over our high expectations. The wedge salad was the best ever. The steak and lobster was a huge portion. We loved the bread pudding and butter creams. It was just magnificent. Can’t wait to go back.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Mozambique. If you are looking for some quiet away from the music upstairs, the dining room/bar area on the first floor is quiet and romantic. The service was attentive and the bartender mixed up a specialty coffee drink for us after dinner that was delicious (and strong). I'd highly recommend dining here and am anxious to come back on our next trip through or to Laguna Beach. One of the best mahi mahi meals I have ever had and it was an overall very enjoyable evening.
I have been coming here for years and never had a bad time. I have talk to many people who have given a mixed reviews but always been an advocate. This will be my last time. It was my birthday and I seriously cried. I’ve never been made to feel less welcome. Our food was under done and cold and requests for no onions were ignored on one dish, so people were eating while others were waiting for their feet. There was a large party in the next room and everyone was preoccupied with helping them. They never acknowledge my birthday, we had to beg for water, napkins and utensils. I could’ve gone anywhere for my birthday and chose here, I really want a do over and will be back.
I have been going to Mozambique for 10+ years...dining upstairs and standard dining room. This last time, we ate dinner in the Durbin Room...our second time (first time last year was great). Our server was wonderful and the food was good. Our bill was around $300.
Unfortunately, we were seated by the fireplace. We had to ask to have the piano singer turn down volume so we could hear each other, which they did. Then, at 10:00 a 3 piece band started right next to us. Great music, but not for this small room. It was extremely loud...so much so, we moved outside to finish our meal. The manager, Simon, was dismissive and the owner, Ivan, didn't seem to care. It would have been nice for them to tell us prior that loud music would be starting at 10:00. We would have then sat somewhere else and not had this problem. The fact that the manager and owner don't understand that customer keeps them in business is disappointing and we won't be back.
My suggestion, if you want a nice, quiet meal...go elsewhere or be sure you are finished well before 10:00.
Such a disappointment for our first (and last) visit to Mozambique. The only thing we enjoyed were our cocktails. We were seated in the back part of the restaurant where there was only one other couple...at 6:30 on a Saturday night. The room was awkwardly empty, and not lively at all. The couple seated next us decided they wanted to Face-Time, with their speaker on high. This went on for about 5 minutes- so rude. Our server was not at all knowledgable about the menu, didn't know the market price for the lobster and couldn't answer our simple questions about the oysters....which were terrible and a total rip off. The lobster was totally lacking in flavor also. At the end of our meal we tried a few times to get our servers attention so we could get our bill - but instead of giving us eye contact, she just kept walking past us. Maybe the rooftop experience is different, but honestly we were so turned off by our dining experience that night that we will not be returning to find out.
Love this place. Tonight was our second visit this weekend. Friday night we celebrated my birthday. Had a wonderful couples dinner on the second floor. The Peri Peri Shrimp and Peri Peri Chicken we're fabulous. Great wine list. Try the wines from South Africa they are excellent. After dinner enjoyed a local group play at the bar. Later at 10 p.m. on the ground level we enjoyed a Motown/ Soul artist. At both bars people were enjoying the entertainment. Came back on Sunday at 5 p.m. to enjoy dinner and sunset on the roof top. Again great dinner. I loved the Mozambique Penne, my husband loved his mahi mahi. There was a reggae band playing on the second level...just perfect both nights!
Mozambique was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. Had lunch from the rooftop patio where you could enjoy the warm weather and a panoramic view of the Pacific. A couple of us had the beef tenderloin sandwich with a spicy house sauce. It was very good and a nice change of pace from the typical CA cuisine. The seafood sampler with peri peri sauce was our appetizer...could have been an entrée. We visited on a weekday where the patio was half full allowing for a very leisurely lunch.
There are occurrences that cannot be controlled, like losing power to the restaurant. However, the staff did not make any effort to help frustrated diners. We had to use our phones to light our plates in order to see our food. There were 6 of us and 3 of the meals were not prepared properly. When we told our waitress of the problem she informed us that we should just be grateful that we got our food. We have dined here multiple times in the past and have always had a great experience. Very disappointed, especially as we were there to celebrate a birthday.
Outstanding food. Great location.
We had dinner here with a group of friends, including our teenage children who can be picky eaters. There were steaks, pork chops and a rack of lamb that were all beautifully prepared. The curries, both lamb and seafood, were outstanding. Peri peri prawns were also a hit. I had the sea bass and it was one of the best I've had anywhere. I don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu. I'll definitely be coming back!
A great restaurant that accommodated a large party for my wife's birthday. Wait staff was excellent and very attentive. Cocktails were on point. The food was well described and portioned correctly for the price and tasted awesome. We will definitely return!
We were with a group of 8 in town for the Rose Bowl. The food was wonderful and the staff was were phenomenal! Fined for NYE and the meal and ambience were fabulous. We had a quiet, private dining room. Will definitely return if ever in Laguna Beach area and would highly recommend this place.
