“Good food, friendly staff, great value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

We visited this restaurant based on the Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. The unseasonably cold weather meant the resort was quieter than usual; however the welcome at Safari was very warm. The owner and waiter were very attentive and friendly and the food was delicious and good value. The local Portuguese red wine was also very drinkable. Try the chicken curry, it's lovely. A definite must to try

“A great little find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

The outside of this restaurant does not do it justice, not very inviting but don't let this put you off it is fantastic.

We had a really lovely meal overlooking the beach, service was excellent also. Really good quality and good value for money food.

“good, but a bit more expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Lovely restaurant, traditional portugese food, Been going to it for many years. I reccommend to advocado starter and the lamb stew (if its a bit chilly). Bit more expensive than other restaurants in the town
