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!

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.
