Food is very sub standard, pricey and very slow service! My partner got cold fish soup, prawn cocktail was ok and we both had Portuguese steak which was pretty much like leather with finger poured over it! Yuck!

The fish soup is lovely & the staff are friendly & quick service. You may need to book for an outside table. Again we would rate it as one of the best restaurants in Praia Da Rocha. We will be back.

We were looking at menu at front and the owner came to chat to us. Extremely nice and pleasant so we decided to give it a go. Place and decor seemed nice. We sat outside overlooking the beach and sea. The food was excellent and the service was great. Would highly reccommend.

We ate here watching the sun set, with an amazing sea view. Food was lovely, we had mixed seafood cataplana for two. There was enough food for four people, fresh lobster, mussels, all types of fish you could imagine in a spicy sauce. Our other friends had the salmon and prawn kebab and the mixed kebab which also looked lovely.... More

The food was allright, the sangria was OK. Good location and if you are lucky, might be getting a view to the sea. Otherwise not a great experience.

We had outside table over looking beach and sea. The service and food were as always excellent. We have visited Safari twice each time we have been there in the last 3 years and it continues to meet expectations providing good choice for vegetarians.

Ate here to night. Had the most gorgeous home made tomato soup with croutons to die for. Followed by crab in a beautifully light tomatoey sauce. Staff lovely-efficient and friendly. Looks small from the front but lovely terrace with sea view at the back. Lovely eating experience.
