Well worth the money. This cozy restaurant is well worth a visit. Really good food and excellent service. And what a view over the beach and sea!

We came here for a quick drink to shelter from the sun. We were shown to the back terrace that had great views of the sea. We came around mid day but I am sure it would be even better at sunset.

Small entrance from the street but has a terrace overlooking the beach at the back. We were the only customers for lunch but had a good, fresh salad and booked again for dinner. Much busier in the evening. Hard to find decent places in this funny resort but this is pretty good food and reasonable prices. Amazing sea bass very... More

We came here with family and the staff cooked us something that was not even on the menus and went out to get us mackerel which sadly this year was also not on the menu as were some other of our favourites not on, How ever they accommodated our needs and made them anyway for us, location is beautiful and...

Eating in this highly-touristic area is like buying a hot ticket to mediocrity; you're not likely to have horrible meal but probably won't enjoy a memorable one either. Most of the restaurants cater to the masses. During peak tourist months you'll find the streets congested with young couples seeking a romantic evening out and parent's with starving kids. Lot's of... More

We passed this unassuming restaurant many times before one of the waiters asked us to give it a try. First impressions weren't good as the decor and finishings were pretty dated and rickety. The service was great though and the food was pretty nice but nothing to boast about. There are nicer, cheaper places to eat I'm afraid!

This restaurant had a great view of the beach. The food was really nice and cooked very well too. The staff was very friendly and would go back again.

We have been to Safari on previous visits to Praia da Rocha and enjoyed it but our last visit was very poor. We had a lovely table facing the sea and was looking forward to our meals we had Veg soup to start and garlic bread when the soup arrived it was only just warm so asked for it to... More

The ambiance was good. Good welcome and the service was happy. The menus card is a little beat small but they're a typical food of Portugal. The service was a little beat slowly. My wife as crab eating, she has waiting 45 minutes for a non good thing and she has hungry. The crab was served without vegetables!

Saw Safari on TripAdvisor prior to first Portugal holiday last year. Sadly never made it here until last night, mainly due to there being a lot of great eateries in the area. So glad we did though. Had the best swordfish steak ever, served with great enthusiasm and a smile from all the staff. The ocean view is stunning. As... More
