Lovely, quite 'buzzy' venue even at 6.00pm, Saffy's is the ideal location for an early evening meal with friends. Service is prompt and attentive; the food is quite delicious and the atmosphere is conducive to conversation and enjoyment. As well as the standard a la carte, an 'Express' menu is on offer which is very reasonably priced for a 2-course... More

Delicious food, well presented. Service unobtrusive but efficient. One slight criticism is the fish cake starter was a bit bland - saved by the chilli jam. Bit more expensive than other local lunch menus but then this is a restaurant and not a pub or cafe. 3 course lunch menu £13 approx.

Never a chore! I love Saffy's and will always keep going back. The decor makes for a lovely, cosy atmosphere especially at this time of year when you need a good meal and a heat! I love all the Himalayan salt pieces, candle holders, grinders on the tables etc. The bar and windows with Christmas decorations were lovely too. Service... More

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.
