First visit during weekend visit to Nice, the Safari was totally packed out so we went to nearby bar for a drink for half an hour, on our return we managed to grab a table. Great atmosphere and entertaining staff, albeit a little slow but excuseable being so busy. Shared the deep fried calamari and cod bites then Beef Daube... More

The problem is the mentality of no service in France. I waited 15 minutes to get the menu and then it just took too long to get the food. They were not busy at all, but still.... I will always there as the food is good and prices reasonable.

Very nice food, staff and mood. We have enjoyed the food. We have tried different traditional dishes and all of them was really nice and interesting.

Food: Since I never had Nicoise cuisine, I chose this place without doing much research. First ordered a pizza and it came really wet (even looks like undercooked on the top with side based burnt in small area). Later, I found out that in this region, the Italian have that kind of wet pizza. Otherwise, do not order a pizza... More

I have been a few times to Safari but it is nothing more than average as so many of these restaurants on the 'strip'. Brusque but efficient service for reasonable food and slightly inflated prices. But it is busy and atmospheric and fun!

Le Safari has been going for many years and it was good to make it's acquaintance once more.An interesting menu with that days plat du jour was a black,risotto with lobster and a generous helping too.Nothing phases the service which glides along seamlessly coping with a never ending full,house.Le Safari doesn't pretend it just serves first class bistro food.

We have been coming here for the last 30 years. Still packed on a Saturday night at the end of October! Service is hectic but efficient. Apparently, the fish was delicious as were the pizzas. My Bania Cauda, of raw veggies was good, but the main thing was that the wine kept flowing and everyone had a good time. This... More

Specials of the day are great bargain. The mixed appetizer plate should not be missed. If you love anchovies and fresh veggies, the bagne cause is a must. Try the merda de cava (eggplant gnocchi) when it is available.

We had three goals on our list of things to eat on our autumn vacation to Nice: Oysters Steak frites Salade Niçoise Oysters were done the day before so steak it was. We went wild an crazy and also took the stir fried calamares in a surf and turf combo. Great stuff, nice atmosphere, and you always have nice company... More
