Fodor's Expert Review Mo-zam-bik

$$$ Dolphin Coast African

Sample the authentic tastes of Mozambique without ever crossing the border at this funky, vibrant restaurant. The eatery's rustic charm extends from the interior design to the service to the food. Mozambiquan food is often, mistakenly, equated with Portuguese cuisine, but it also has Arab, Indian, and Goan influences. Seafood and chicken are specialties and appear in some irresistible combinations—try the specialty seafood platter—and you can enjoy a cocktail while the kids are entertained in their own section. Dining here is definitely a case of eat, mess, and be merry. Be sure to check out the historic Arab dhow on site. It's usually busy, so not ideal for a quiet rendezvous.
