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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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!

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.
