Laurentina was founded by Carlos Vilela. Carlos is Portuguese, with an extensive and highly successful career in the hospitality industry, and a passion for Mozambique.

Laurentina - the first truly Mozambican-Portuguese restaurant - opened its doors in May 2016, in Chameleon Village in Hartbeespoort, and now boasts an additional three restaurants in: Cedar Square, Fourways | 4 Hill Road, Morningside | Parkview Centre, Pretoria.

Our vision is to create a fun, and family-friendly, dining experience that epitomizes the Mozambican eating and entertainment experience.

The décor is colourful and rustic. The food is a fresh combination of Mozambican-Portuguese ingredients and cooking methods. The music is live, easy-going and Latin inspired - and a regular highlight each-and-every weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday).


In keeping with Carlos Vilela’s commitment to service and food excellence:-

At Laurentina each-and-every menu item is prepared with fresh ingredients, by chefs from Mozambique who ensure correctness and consistency in the preparation and cooking of dishes.

We are not about ‘turning tables’. Rather, we aim to sell HAPPINESS. Delivering a unique and enjoyable dining (and dancing) experience that keeps customers coming back for more!

The positive reviews that we have received make us so very proud, and suggest that we continue to bring the Business Vision and Customer Promise to life.
