When staying at one of the nearby hotels...the Safari Inn is a great place for lunch. It provides a nice change of scenery...among the locals.

Situated on "the strip" in Shanzu Serena right opposite Continental Hotel. Even when other local places are empty this place has a good regular clientele.

This is a nice easy going bar which has live music and a small dance floor - the food is very good and prices are reasonable. Good mixture of locals and Europeans with a nice atmosphere.
