We ate here early April. After a very warm welcome we were seated inside next to the outside deck area. The friendly waiter attending us offered excellent advice regarding our wine choice. I chose the lamb stew which was fantastic, tender lamb with very little fat in rich sauce. My partner chose the prawn curry which was also very good,... More

We were looking for a restaurant for dinner. Started talking to the owner and he,showed us the menu and the fresh fish that came in that day. We both had sea base that was grilled to perfection. Fabulous Wine recommendation. Nice conversation with staff and owner. Definitely worth a try.

After stumbling across this delightful bar/restaurant on a sunny afternoon and befriending the owner Francisco, we returned in the evening. We enjoyed good wine, good food (seabass) followed up with chocolate mousse and Irish coffee. A great atmosphere in this place owned by the same family for over 40 years. We will be back.

Our family had lunch at Safari. It is a really nice place to eat, the food was delicious. The room is cosy, well decorated, and the sea view is terrific.

We stumbled upon Safari from the seaside entrance while having a walk. A great place for a drink at the end of a day. A friendly and relaxed ambience. We decided to have an evening meal there a couple nights later. To start, the best Gin & Tonic I've had in decades that I didn't make myself. I chose the... More

Absolutely worth a visit! Delicious dinner with fish or other dishes and wine of-course. Very friendly and prompt service. Offers a good view of the beach. View of the Restaurant from the street is a little misleading or strange. Once you enter, you are in a different world.

I enjoyed eating Golden Bream with potatoes and vegetables there. Very delicious! Nice ocean view. It's a pity it was growing dark quickly. The waiter was very professional and service was perfect.

Have been going to Safari for at least 14 years. Just love their chicken curry (not like an Indian curry) which is nicely flavoured with spices. I believe the recipe is Angolan. Lovely staff also. I must try some of their other dishes but so far I have stuck to the chicken curry because I love the flavour.
