French couple, Joelle and Francois run the Green Turtle Restaurant, considered the best in the greater Inhambane area. Francois prepares daily menus based on seasonal availability, including delicious fish dishes, with a twist.
The restaurant is directly on the beach and easily accessible with a normal vehicle - no 4x4 is needed. Although situated on the premises of Bay View Lodge, the restaurant is open to the general public, seven days a week.
Breakfast is buffet style; lunchtime often has delicious salads because of the midday heat (other dishes too), with a-la-carte dinners served after you've enjoyed cocktails or aperitifs on the deck while watching the sunset.
The atmosphere is relaxed, with the emphasis on good food and conversation. Music tinkles in the background and no rowdy crowds are to be found here. This is a restaurant for people that enjoy good food presented beautifully in a relaxed yet stylish atmosphere.

Praia da Barra(15.9 km from Inhambane)
This casual but chic pub-restaurant is directly on the beach at Bayview Lodge, Barra, Mozambique. It is open to the public with seating for 20 guests inside and additional seating on the deck.
The restaurant has hardwood furniture inside and out, with proper crockery and cutlery and even a small ‘reader’s corner’ where you can exchange books.
A daily menu with buffet-style breakfast, light lunches and a la carte dinners. Special catering needs can be accommodated such as vegetarian dishes, if we are informed in advance. The emphasis is on fish and seafood, but other meat dishes – chicken, beef and the occasional lamb - are also served. Our menu is dependent on availability and is therefore varied.
A few examples of our menu include lunch dishes of chicken or prawn or octopus salad, or maybe a tuna carpaccio with roquette. Dinner offered may include tuna steak with pesto and ratatouille or a calamari and prawn curry, or for meat lovers, our famous peri-peri chicken, beef fillet or a sirloin steak.
The emphasis is on good food in a relaxed atmosphere, where the music is in the background; in other words, a place to get together. Kids are welcome.
