We have been to this restaurant a few times recently, always lunchtime, mainly because we were foolish enough to buy some discount vouchers. We have always been disappointed with the food- but we're reassured by the manager that the restaurant 'really didn't open properly at lunchtime- better to come for dinner'. So tonight we invited very good friends to join... More

Visited this restaurant for the first time and didn't disappoint. The place is authentically decorated and brings a little bit of the Taj to Marbella. The food selection is complete and what you'd expect from a competent Indian cuisine. The food quality is lovely and the presentation great. The staff are knowledgable and attentive. The CoolDeals offer is great value,... More

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!!
