Always great spot Make sure you make a reservation
Amazing food, horrible service! Or maybe they were just understaffed, but either way it was so bad!
Thank you for great food for my boys and I , the server was amazing , he was on point , I truly love your restaurant
Super food and excellent waiter!
Last time I was here, and it has been awhile, I complained about the unfriendliness of the parking attendants. This time they were great. Very cordial.
Also, when I made the reservation it said I would get a 100 points. When I got a reminder the day of, it said this reservation was not eligible for points. Why?
The happy hour menu is varied and tasty. We really enjoyed the Caesar salad and the pasta.
Went here for our anniversary and in another trip for a friend's birthday. Sat on the rooftop near the bar, once at night with the lights in the hills, once on a Sunday overlooking PCH and the ocean in early evening. The seafood curry is outstanding, so is the shrimp, and the steaks are very very good. The mushroom pasta was very tasteful. Service is fine. A good place and not cheap but not over-priced. Even the exotic birds downstairs at the entrance contribute to the ambiance. A good place to go for a couple, a family or a date.
Solid experience. No big deal to wear jeans and a pullover but I'd not have been out of place in a coat and slacks either.
Always consistent - loved the Caesar salad and pasta.
Great spot for great food and a view. We ate on the rooftop and enjoyed our dinner very much. Stopped at the bar downstairs to listen to the live music. Fun place.
We love this place and brought a friend. We all had the Caesar salad and pasta and they were all perfectly prepared.
Exceptional from beginning to end from our hostess to our waitress to our valet... my daughter felt special. All of the staff were made aware of the occasion and all participated in making it excellent..oh and the music was lively and terrific...
We will certainly go back .... thank you for your part as well....
We went 45 min before our reservations but they were able to accommodate us and we were seated within the first five minutes. The two waiters were outstanding and payed great attention to us, and the dinner was outstanding. We followed up by dancing to Tijuana dogs in the bar. Outstanding night.
Always a great meal! Brought a guest who also enjoyed the pasta on the happy hour menu as well as their great Caesar salad. The Merlot and Syrah were excellent as well.
We all love this place and have travelled from San Diego to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries many times over! This time around Im sad to say not so much...
While our waitress was great , the service ...being the food portions and taste was very mediocre.
I’d definitely think twice about the 2.5 hour drive next time.
Always an enjoyable time we have been eating here for twenty plus years food has always been great. Very good wait staff and good vibes.
We loved our dinner at Mozambique! Our waiter Baron was very helpful and gave us great advice on the menu. The rooftop patio was the perfect place to enjoy dinner while watching the sunset, and the live music drifting up from the bar made it especially lively. We would absolutely return again!
We had a big group to celebrate three birthday. We had a great table and great service. Food was good and we all had a good time.
I would recommend for a birthday celebration.
This is a great restaurant. We come here often - love their Caesar salad and pasta. I gave a low score for ambiance this time because a basketball game was on in the bar. Although there are doors separating it from the restaurant, they were kept open. The constant cheering, yelling, shouting, etc did not provide a pleasant ambiance for the dining room. Either you’re a dining establishment or a sports bar, but you can’t be both and expect the dining patrons to enjoy their experience.
Loved the band in the bar upstairs where we were seated for dinner!! 3guys in Band: Andrew, Guitar/vocals from American Idol
Michael, fabulous bass/vocals
Drummer: I didn’t catch his name, but he was great as well!
The band really made our evening !!
We highly recommend this rockin night spot for your entire evening!!!
Pretty good food. Plated well.
Server was efficient and attentive, but not very personable.
The server was excellent!!! Thank you!
I visit the Laguna area annually and always make a stop at Mozambique’s. The live music venue upstairs never disappoints. The “dance floor” is small but doesn’t seem to stop anyone from having a good time. This time I included dinner on the main floor and to my surprise and enjoyment also included live acoustic music. The meal and service was great.
Our waiter was great. The Chicken Liver and Seafood Ceviche were very good. The Ceviche actually had more fish than other ingredients. Pork Chop was one of the best I have had and the Sea Bass also. Flourless Chocolate Cake and coffee was tasty too. One of the better meals we have had lately.
Food is great! Service is great!
We really enjoy both menus but the happy hour is a great value and delicious. We love their Caesar salad - very fresh and light. Also their pasta is excellent.
Very good food and service. However I would not think this a sports bar, yet they had a huge TV in the dinning room playing a basketball game. Not the best for the atmosphere.
Sat in the bar ...4 folks...thought it was Mastro's pricing without the ambiance. Shrimp Cocktail 25 bucks....Drinks were fair in terms of quality....15 bucks a piece...Dine out every night wasn't worth the drive from Newport....band was good....lots of people dancing....
We love this place! We enjoyed the Caesar salad as well as the asparagus pasta with other veggies. We will be back!
We had a great Sunday lunch at Mozambique! We were on the rooftop and it was a beautiful day. The Bloody Marys were great, there was a good wine list and the food was excellent. We ordered the ahi burger and the salmon. Both were flavorful and perfectly cooked. Our server, Guy, was attentive and helpful. Will definitely come back next time we visit Laguna Beach.
We stayed in Laguna Beach for a wedding and 10 of us met at Mozambique the following day for lunch. I was able to add 3 more to our reservations just the day before through Opentable. They sat us up on the rooftop with an awesome view of the beach! Guy, our server, was awesome! He was attentive, helpful and conscious of our time constraint. The food was unique and tasty, it was definitely a great dining experience for us!
The happy hour menu is great. We especially love the Caesar salad - not drenched in dressing but just right. The beef sausage skewer is very tasty as is the pasta.
Great dinner experience, food taste very good, super service, great waitress.
Great food and service my wife and I had a nice Valentine
Our experience overall was superb! Can’t wait to go back
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.
Food was decent, atmosphere was fine, fireplace was on but our server was aloof and totally inattentive.
She took a long time to come and get our orders and once food was served (not by her) she vanished for up to 30 min...
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.
