“Very enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

My husband and I enjoyed two meals at the Sahara (a lunch and a dinner) when on vacation last week and would definitely recommend the restaurant. We were staying at a wonderful place further south on Soliman Bay (Villa Dolce Vita - loved it and highly recommend!) and so we could walk to the Sahara, which is a selling point for us. The food and service were excellent with great ambience, we had the same table overlooking the bay both times. There is lots of choice on the menu but some items are a bit pricey by local standards.

“Hidden Treasure in Soliman Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013

Sahara Cafe is a hidden treasure; you will not be disappointed in this restaurant. Beautiful outdoor seating looking out to the beach. Great food with beautiful presentation. Very attentive staff to our party of 10. If you are in the area, you won't find a better place to dine!

“Wonderful, romantic restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

Beautiful, modern ambiance on the beach. The food was amazing and reasonably priced for the quality and location. Service was a little slow but that just gave more time to enjoy the lovely location.

Excellent Italian food. All the ingredients were fresh and obviously made at that moment. And the ambiance was perfect for a nice romantic dinner
