Customer Reviews

We hired Dave at Safari to cater our outside wedding. From the first message to the end of the day he was fantastic and helped us tailor the menu to suit our guests, while offering a range of options. Everyone talked about how incredible for the food was, and the whole team was super friendly and accommodating to every single one of our guests. They were super easy to work with and we never felt like we were a number to Dave, he cared about us as a couple and about making our event as perfect as it could possible be. We can not recommend him highly enough!

Happy to find a Great Grill house in Banbridge🔥
My hubby and I are both serious meat lovers, so are delighted to have discovered Safari’s Friday night Steak night Special.

What an amazing experience at Safari! We were visiting Ireland/Northern Ireland on holiday and had left Belfast and were on our way to Dublin. We wanted to eat outside of the hubbub of Belfast so looked for something along the way. This place was wonderful. We happened to come in on a night with live music and an incredible steak special. The food was top notch; the steak was cooked and seasoned PERFECTLY and the appetizers were delightful – the chicken wings in particular were fantastic. We got great drinks (highly recommend the bramble) and the dessert was awesome – sticky toffee pudding did not disappoint and the homemade cheese cake was fantastic. We talked at length to the owner – he was super friendly and genuine; he gave us some great tips for our trip into Dublin and just was overall a nice guy. If you are in Banbridge or just in between Belfast and Dublin, check this place out- you will be happy you did.

Fantastic place to bring our family as they have a very inclusive menu.

I’ve been vegetarian for 35 years and never found anywhere local that offers this large selection of vegetarian food. vegan food available on request.
There are 5 vegetarians in my family and eating out as a family has become very difficult, we choose a different local restaurant for Easter and 3 of us ended up eating bland sides.
At Safari we were all able to choose a different main dish and starters if we wanted one. The meat eaters were very happy too as they also had a good selection of food.
There was 20 of us there for a family Birthday party and they open up especially for us and couldn’t have been nicer, nothing was too much trouble.

The food was amazing and I’m sure we will be back soon. Thank you
