Found this restaurant 2 years ago and when we returned to the area this summer just had to go and visit it again. The food is really good. The lamb stew is most definitely the best I have had. If you go to Praia de Rocha don't miss out, give a try.

Food was extremely good, slight hiccup as they forgot a starter and extra side but could be forgiven as we were happy with everything else. Chicken curry was slow cooked and completely different to the norm back home would definitely go back for that alone!

Well positioned on the sea fron at Praia da Rocha, parking a short walking distance, superb view of beach and sea, excellent varied food, good wine list and very professional,attentive service. On a second visit they even managed to get us a pre-booked table for six in the terrace when the restaurant was already full. When the little kids got... More

We stumbled upon this bar/restaurant and had some drinks.We really liked the look of it and would have eaten there but didnt have time. It is painted blue and white It is on an old cobbled bit between the nasty main drag and the sea. small but busy. Felt very non touristy.

Safari was recommended to us by a previous visitor from home. Its an interesting venue. Small menu but the food was well prepared and served, with some nice sweets. But discussing our evening with my partner, we cannot decide if we have had a good or indifferent experience. Nothing to complain about, but I don't know, I'm not sure.........

We were undecided on where to eat so decided to walk along the strip until we came along somewhere that took our fancy. The guy outside was lovely explained to us that it was a family ran resturant and had been going for so many years. We sat outside which was nice and over looked the beach. I ordered a... More
