A Taste Of Mozambique
In a magic corner of your mind, there is a place where the sun always shines and worldly cares melt as rapidly as ice-cream cones on hot sand.
“LM in Plett” is the gateway to that happy land. Our aim is to satisfy you with outstanding service, mouth watering Mozambican fare and a truly memorable LM experience.
Our menu, as is Mozambican food, was created by combining the influence of Portuguese, Indian and African fare.
Allow me to recommend that you inebriate yourselves in our ambiance and adapt to our style of enjoying the sharing of traditional dishes in our restaurant.
