Drink[edit]

In Lobito, like the rest of Angola prices of pretty much everything, except alcohol, are high. Here are some places on the Restinga, the city's famous natural harbour:

  • Alfa Bar - Decent pizzas. Street tables that seem to be almost always full. Some more chairs closer to the beach.
  • Zulu - At the very end of the Restinga.
  • Luna - The newest bar\lounge opened in the summer of 2014. Very high standards for a bar in the province, nice atmosphere and good food but limited menu.
  • Jango Hotel Restinga - Recently renovated with very nice outside wooden deck and beach chairs.
