A small but inviting beach shack sits inside the exclusive Safi Beach, accessible only to residents. It offers a new concise and cohesive menu, making it very clear where you are and what you’re in for: beach snacks. Think pizza, burger, sandwiches, salads, and some other exciting quick meals. The menu also offers fresh juices, cocktails, smoothies, desserts and shisha. Seasons waiters peruse the rows of chaise-longues and take your order without disrupting your tan-time, and then bring it straight to you. Or you can opt for a minute walk to the Seasons shack to dine there. Food is served in plastic and foil containers, making it one of the best restaurants in Sa7el for easy to take-away or order to go.
Signatures Dishes & Dishes Sampled
Noon on a Thursday was the perfect time to sample the offerings at Seasons Safi Beach. Beach goers were only starting to arrive, so the atmosphere was especially serene. Striking azure waters lapped lovingly against a snow-white sandy shore, and the few tables in front of this beach shack were littered with brunch seekers.
We began with a sampling of the drinks on hand. First was the Frappuccino, a cold wake-me-up coffee with a kick, perfect for a beach morning. Then came the Mixed Berry Smoothie, tart and creamy, followed by the Oreo Smoothie, which was a desert in and of itself and would have served us better at the end of our meal, but still, was quite a rich and velvety indulgence.
After we whet (and wet) our palates came the Quesadilla Chicken with a sour cream dipping sauce, soft and tender chicken paired with melted cheese wrapped in soft tortilla bread, each bite was tender and juicy. Then came The Taco Salad and the Nachos, fresh, colorful and satisfying, perfect for sharing. Following that were the BBQ Burger and the Spicy Chicken Burger: definitely the hit of this mini-party. Both quite large, packed with flavor and layered with toppings galore.
We cleansed our palates with fresh pineapple juice, served right out of a pineapple, completing the tropical feel of Safi Beach. Fresh, tangy and delicious!
