ABOVE ALL…

Good food

We believe that your stay at Residencial Palmeiras should be a solid base for exploring Maputo City. That’s why we take breakfast very seriously. Hearty food, fresh rolls, delicious marmalades and sweet Portuguese custard tarts are on the menu, and we’ll prepare whatever you’d like according to your wishes. It goes without saying that there’ll be a good pot of fresh coffee or tea to top it all off.

A good way to start your day in Maputo.

“A lovely quiet and pretty place to rest for the night. Thank you so much for the lovely breakfast… The Portuguese custard tarts were delicious.”

…AND ALMOST AS IMPORTANTLY

A place to relax

If you like, we’ll serve your food outside in our leafy courtyard garden, where you can sit in the shade. It’s a place that captures what Residencial Palmeiras really is at the heart: an oasis of quiet and relaxation in a busy city.

THE TROUGH OF THE GODS

The “Manjar dos Deuses”, as it’s called in Portuguese, is an excellent little restaurant in Maputo center. If you’re looking for steak done right, look no further. Or maybe, eat then look further. Maputo restaurants are competitive!
