  • Hotel 24 de Setembro. Excellent service and a good food, albeit little pricey.
  • Hotel Kalliste – There is an open-air restaurant directly on Praca Che Guevara (known as “Praca Bayana” by most cab drivers). Excellent pizza and excellent music most nights, although at a high price (4000f – 5000f for a small pie).

  • Breakfast at Bate Papo is excellent, with croissants, pastries, and sandwiches, as well as coffee, natural juices, and so on. It’s just close to “meteorologa.”
  • Dom Bifana is a fantastic steakhouse near the parliament, with a live gazelle and a crowned crane in the restaurant.

  • Lenox – Bairro de Ajuda Popular neighborhood hangout featuring an internet café, loud music, beer, shawarma, pizza, goat meat, sandwiches, and other fast food.
  • Lenox – Luanda The same idea, but without the loud music.
  • Phoenicia Libanese restaurant serving delicious sandwiches, shawarmas, burgers, pizzas, soft drinks, and wireless internet. There was no alcohol sold.
