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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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 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.
