Saffron used to be known as Josephs. Its a pity it cant go back to being Josephs. A real culinary disaster. The service was good but I don't know where the chef was the night we were there. I had chicken tikka with a separate Madras sauce. Believe me when I tell you I got a bowl of tomato soup... More

Every time we visit Elviria we always return to Saffron at least a couple of times. Ronnie the waiter has always remembered our preferences and the food is consistently good. Portions are excellent and the flavours first class. This time of year is very quiet for them but the standards do not drop. Will be back soon.

After several nights of eating in our hotel, I was craving something different. Our tour guide had mentioned Saffron so we decided to give it a try and I'm so happy we did. The restaurant was festively decorated for Christmas which pleasantly surprised us. We could not have had a more attentive waiter. He was just super! We all chose... More

Great food and good service, excellent value for money in nice surroundings. Only a short distance walk from our hotel the Vincci Hotel in Marbella but worth the trip.

I was shocked when I saw that this was only ranked #13 of all restaurants in Elviria. Despite it being ranked low we visited anyway and was pleasantly surprised. Traditional Indian restaurant, great menu, they do 3 courses for a bargain 11 euros. The service is flawless, the waiters cannot do enough for you. Great food. Well worth a visit!!

Excellent staff and service. Pretty good food, generous portion sizes, I would recommend a visit. Only rating as average as we have eaten at many Indian restaurants and have our favourites and like the way they cook!

We always visit this place a couple of times during our visits. The staff are attentive and gracious in their service. The food and style can always be discussed with them and they will try and vary the contents as you require. It is always cooked fresh and we enjoy it each time. Well worth a visit

This was not as good as it claimed nor considering the price. It had expensive presentation, but the food was not up to it's presentation. I am used to flavoursome curries from my local and used to Birmingham Balti triangle this was not as good. We both had the Thali, mine veggie his meat, we had the same sauces just... More
