We were very pleasantly surprised by the Safari restaurant! The service is very friendly and the food excellent. We tried several restaurants as part of 'Rota dos Petiscos', an event that let's you tast a specific small plate of food with a drink, but will surely be back for a full meal. We never expected this quality on the 'Strip'... More

Just back from praia da rocha and this place has to be the best place to eat on the strip. If you want beautiful food. Excellent service and a lovely atmosphere, then this is the place to go. We ate twice in one week here as it has the best sea food ever! Very reasonable prices aswell.

Not far from our hotel we came across this little gem of a place. A gentleman was outside and spoke to us. Found out he was the owner and showed us around. A bar at the front, and the restaurant at the rear overlooking the sea with beautiful views. Now the food.... Fish soup was delightful, full of flavours and... More

We've been here a week and on our last night we returned to our favourite restaurant. Some poor restaurants that look good in this area but safari had the best food. Staff and view was also very good.

This was a real find on a recent visit to Praia da Rocha! There are not that many GOOD restaurants in this location....there are many more snacky sort of places. We came across this rather late in our few days stay....unfortunately...but chose to eat here the remaining nights we had! The entrance doesn't really allow you to get the true... More

Just been back to Praia Da Rocha, with a wide choice of restaurants this is one of our regular favourites. Food was very good, staff friendly and helpful with wine choice when our first choice was not available. We had a very good meal for 2 for 65 Euro including drinks. There is some difference between prices of main courses... More

My family and I visited the Safari restaurant twice during our holiday in Praia da Rocha. We found the food to be excellent, the service very pleasant and helpful, and finally very reasonably priced. If you get a table on the terrace, the view of the beach is quite impressive. I can only say its a shame we found this... More

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!
