I visited the Safari Club on a public holiday, 9 August 2013. It was not very busy and having been their twice before I expected nothing but good service and great food. First problem was ordering a bottle of sparkling wine, almost none were available. We settled for a bottle and when we wanted to order a second, it took whoever went to look for it in some store room, almost half an hour to return and inform that there was nothing. When trying to order a bottle of wine instead, we made three selections before one was available. The wine list is small and I find no excuse for not having what is offered. Management was no where to be seen. A table with a small family complained about the service for all to hear! The highlight however was the chef. He took on the role of management and came to each table to enquire whether all was fine and on finding out it was my birthday really went out of his way to make sure that the food was excellent and even made me a mussel starter that was not on the menu a special dessert on the
house. A few last comments. The table cloth at our table was torn, the restaurant had obviously just received (I hope) cases of beer etc. It was unpacked and took quite a bit of floor space in the restaurant and did not create a very good atmosphere. There was also unopened outside umbrellas lying on the floor. From being a top restaurant in Eat Out 2011 some serious work is needed to keep the standard.
