If you want a cosy festive lunch to warm the winter chill away? Saffy's is perfect for you.. with Fishcake with creamed leaks. Salmon with delicious salsa and rice pudding with raspberry jam. I tell you no wonder the Wyllie girls are regular customers.

Birthday weekend in Ayr. Had Saturday lunch in Saffy's and could not resist booking for dinner on Sunday. Both meals were exceptional. Service with a smile. Could not fault the experience.

This has quickly become my favourite restaurant in Ayr. I had been to Saffy's years ago, hated it and was reluctant to retur but I'm so glad I did. Vegetarian diners will be particularly impressed. Staff were lovely and friendly. Food was beautiful, good portions and well presented. Although it was busy the night we went we didn't feel like... More

Had lunch with friend recently and found the menu to be very good. Not expensive and good choice. Bit surprised that it was not busier for time of year. Staff friendly and to confirm how much I liked it I booked it for the following week.

Went here for my birthday meal with some family, the social Sunday menu was excellent value for money and the food was outstanding and presented to a very good standard. The surroundings are beautiful with paintings from local artists all around which are for sale. Only let down - the service wasn't the best, with great service I would have... More

A group of ladies booked this restaurant for an early Christmas dinner, food was very good, staff friendly and efficient whilst dealing with us plus other diners. Only complaint was price of a large glass of wine, at £6+ seemed a bit over the top. Have been here before for lunch was equally satisfied with the menu.

Went here on Saturday and had an excellent evening meal. The food was fresh, tasty and very well presented. We had steak and sea bass dishes from the specials menu which were two of the best dishes we've had in a restaurant for a long time. It's obvious that the chef really cares about what he puts on the plate... More

Very surprised how busy it was at 20.00 on a Thursday evening (always good sign !!).and were lucky to get a table for 5. The fod choice was excellent ... not the usual... More
