We had a fabulous meal a great waiter shared the Seafood Tower for two very very good especially for a special occasion.
Great food, great service. We will be back!!!
Never disappoints. Food, service and views are always great
Salmon dry. Kids asked if mac n cheese was Kraft. Waiter said yes. Def not Kraft. 4 wasted bowls. Out of Tusker S. African beer.
There wasn’t any social distancing, appeared they were trying to cram as many people in as possible out on the patio. The table next to us was only a couple feet away.
We had a reservation and they sat us downstairs behind the curtain in an outdoor area that was closed in. No ambience or view. There was a huge cricket on the brick wall.
Our meal and experience was amazing! It was our first time at Mozambique and we will definitely be back. Our waiter Albert was especially great!
It was our 21st wedding anniversary. It was also our fuse time at Mozambique. I am glad we chose it. So delicious
We were able to sit on rooftop ... great food, great view and great service!
We always have a great experience at Mozambique, no matter if it is a romantic dinner, going out with friends, or having an event hosted there. The crew, food, and ambiance is delightful.
The speakers were too high, there were Flys, too much sun in my eyes which gave me a headache. But my server was outstanding. I would go back just to see her.
The hostess was so hostile and rude that by the time we sat down we just decided to leave.
Food was delcious, the server was helpful and attentive. There was no wait when you place a reservation ahead of time. Would definitely go back.
First time at an African Restaurant, well to say we were impressed would be an understatement, one of the best Steaks ever, got the Bone in Ribeye, sat outside to watch Sunset, everything was perfect. We will be back.
Was our first night out since Covid began. The staff was extra cautious and concerned with our safety. We watched the sun set from the roof and enjoyed a wonderful meal! Highly recommend!
Everybody loved the seafood & even me being gf vegan had the best meal w portabella mushrooms. Great sparkling Rosé & chardonnay too. Love the rooftop and they abide by all the covid Rules.
Great experience! Friendly service, awesome view, fantastic happy hour. Highly recommend the calamari and samoosas!
EAT ATE LUNCH UP ON THE ROOF...IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL SUNNY DAY...OUR SERVE ADRIAN WAS GREAT
Our waiter kept forgetting what we ordered throughout the whole night and was very distracted picking up on some girl in the next table.
Good food. Great service. Beautiful view from the 2nd floor.
Food and service were good.
Unfortunately a couple other things were not.
Staff were just wiping off tables - they should be using sanitizer during COVID-19.
Large groups were seated next to us at two other tables. Group size should be limited during COVID-19. In addition the large groups were so loud we could barely hear each other at our table of four.
Lastly, the noise from PCH below was like dining on a freeway on-ramp. Especially the motorcycles. Laguna Beach needs to enforce the noise ordinance on them. And to make matters worse a group of motorcycles came into the valet parking lot below and reved their engines. Just added to the noisy, chaotic feeling of what should have been a nice, pleasant brunch with friends. Next time we'll find a place more suitable to our preferences. If Mozambique is ok with allowing the noisy motorcycles on their valet lot to disrupt their customers, and does not work with the City to manage the noise levels of motorcycles/vehciles on PCH, then its not a place we would frequent.
ALWAYS an amazing experience that we are happy to support and be a part of. Everything is incredible about this place including the food, view, and people. Always 5 stars!
First time there. The music was awesome. The meals we had were wonderful and pretty . The rooftop was a treat . The waiter was attentive and our glass was never empty .
We were able to get a table on the veranda and the view was beautiful. The food was excellent and our server was great. Overall we had a very good dining experience. We will definitely go back.
Service was bad, but I’ve come to expect that from previous visits. Food is usually excellent and was very disappointing this time - perhaps because of their first week back.
Hesitant to visit again.
We were seated immediately with our Open Table reservation. The service and food were both outstanding. Everyone in the restaurant was happy to be there. A very festive environment. We splurged on Steak and Lobster, everything was cooked to perfection! A fantastic value! The view could not be beat, sunset overlooking to ocean. Worth every penny!! Decadent Dessert! We left really happy. Thank you!!
Bar was overcrowded and no 6ft distancing. No management was enforcing it and people were hovering over me. Was completely uncomfortable. Won’t be going back for a while. Too bad, love the food
Went for happy hour. What a deal. Service was excellent. Food was very good. All staff wore masks. I’ve not been there in a long time but it didn’t seem like they had removed any tables from the rooftop so all groups were not 6 feet apart, if that matters to you.
People can be a little annoying with their irritating laughs but the food is really good and ambiance is awesome
Outdoor dining with a view. Good menu with an interesting twist regarding spices from Mozambique!
We chose this restaurant for its ocean view, and were so pleased with our dining experience. The rooftop was open for drinks and dinner, and we were able to enjoy a beautiful sunset, and NOT be rushed for a table flip. Three of us ordered the Chilean sea bass and it was excellent. My son got the burger, which was great. Good times. The service was a bit slow but I think the restaurant is still understaffed from the covid shutdown. Very nice guy, though. I will definitely go back!
Food was poorly prepared and disappointing for cost. Ambiance and service along with drinks were excellent.
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.
Had a very accommodating waiter. Food was great also
GREAT! WILL BE BACK. GREGG WAITER WAS THE BEST WAITER WE HAVE EVER HAD.
We came here for lunch on a Sunday with a party of 9, our table was ready and we were seated right away on the roof top, the view was gorgeous. Service was great, food was served timely, everyone enjoyed there meal. I would come back!
All great. Good music and atmosphere. Three of us had a great night
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.
Great good and service. Like it and would come back.
Food was great but we had a table with a big tv next to it.
nobody was watching it. iIt made it feel more like a bar atmosphere
