Welcome to Reef Resort Xai-Xai

Mozambique has to be considered as one of the world’s best tropical holiday destinations with its miles of untouched, naturally beautiful coastlines. A preferred destination for many holiday makers and Maputo residents.  The coral reef that runs parallel to the shore, offers good snorkeling and protects the beach from strong waves.

People Say

“It was a very nice holiday at a fantastic and safe place with great hospitality. We will definitly go back and recommend to others. On top of all we saw whales and dolphins from the balcony every day!”

Our Restaurant

Reef Resort’s fishing boat brings in the wonderful daily catch from the rich ocean just metres away from the spacious 70 seater double storey restaurant.

We’ve put together a few of our favourite recipes that we hope will tantalise your tastebuds –  these are all prepared from scratch in our kitchen – vegetable or spicy chicken samoosas, our popular  prawn rissois, or the crunchy deep fried squid tentacles (Cabecinhas de lulas) or our take on Thai fishcakes with Asian salad…and a few others.

We offer a selection of chicken dishes including the well-loved Mozambican style grilled chicken or crumbed chicken ‘panado’ or our beef cuts – a tasty 300g Sirloin or 500g T-Bone steak served with fresh chimichurri sauce on the side, there is also slow roasted Asian spiced pork belly in the meat section and then in the seafood section –  freshly caught fish & chips, our favourite fish of the day, whole roasted baked fish, prawns, calamari grilled or deep fried or our bestselling Seafood platter for 2.  

Desserts should be decadent and I think our Chocolate fondant encompasses all that is rich, gooey and indulgent – baked especially for you as you order it.  We also have our popular chocolate cake, Peppermint crisp ‘tart’, cheese cake, Malva pudding (a South African classic) all served with a dollop of vanilla ice-cream.  Check the board or dessert fridge for any seasonal specials….

We serve local as well as a few imported beers and ciders, a selection of spirits including award winning Handcrafted gin and we have a small selection of Portuguese as well as South African red & white wines and the famous crispy Green wine/Vino verde from Portugal but you’re on holiday in the tropics and what could be more tropical than an exotic cocktail.

Sunny beaches and blue sky
