My favourite place to eat in Ayr. Fish is fantastic as are all other dishes on menu. I have eaten both lunch and dinner at Saffy's. They offer an excellent specials menu as well as an a la carte menu for lunch and dinner. Dessert is a must!

My mum and I visited Saffy's for a business trip whilst visiting Ayr. As mum is a vegetarian, finding somewhere to eat is hard as a lot of places don't understand the "contamination" thing. We went in at 7pm and it was very quiet. In fact we had the place to ourselves for half an hour or so. We were... More

We had an excellent lunch with friends. The choice of menu was first class and the seafood platter to share was excellent. The meal was also excellent value for money.

I have been many times to this little resturant and not once have I been disappointed. The menu is varied and cooked on site. There are some very unusual combinations. The staff are very helpful, efficient and cheerful. Value for money is also good. I would recommend this resturant to all.

It is as good as ever. Excellent, well cooked meal, with great flavours. The young staff and cheerful and helpful. Go there soon -... More

Not the biggest of restaurants so we were lucky to get a table without booking. Great fresh food and the staff are very friendly. Only two minutes from Ayr Town Centre, well worth a visit to this popular restaurant.
