A party of four with assorted allergies and intolerances but we were well accommodated as the menu gave a broad choice to suit all tastes. The duck breast on special was perfectly cooked as was my friends steak. The staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Friday night yet we were not rushed, nice relaxed dining atmosphere. Worked out at less... More

Family run business thats affordable and exquisite. Two course pre theatre we opted for was very reasonable. For 5 with wine a fantastic price of £55 . My father won't go anywhere else and neither should you. Haley the other wonderful daughter of the owner welcomes you with a smile that comes from her eyes, a tremendous hostess. The tomato... More

I am a regular customer at Saffy's where the staff are all very friendly and their service has been nothing short of excellent. The food that is both tasty and affordable is freshly prepared by owner and talented chef, Douglas Smith. Food of this quality is very hard to come by in the town. I have to say that his... More

Went here last night after a recommendation from a friend. I haven't been here for 9 years but have always heard good things. The food was delicious, service was great and the atmosphere was perfect. Will certainly go back!

It's been a few years since we've been in Saffy's and had forgotten how tasty it was. Service was good and it's as cosy as ever. Definitely be back sooner this time! Top tip if your wanting a quiet table on a night the Gaiety has a performance - book slightly later to avoid the pre-theatre rush!

The lamb tagine was superb and a generous sized serve. As good as I've had anywhere. The staff were friendly. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for quality good in Ayr.

We visited Saffys on Friday 15th August with friends. Plenty of options from both the usual menu and the specials. The food and service was excellent and the resteraunt itself has a good warming atmosphere aided by all staff.

Four of us are traveling Scotland on a golf trip and we really enjoyed our dinner. The service was excellent and we all had something different and each was nicely prepared. The restaurant is very small so I would suggest reservations. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is that it was extremely hot in the... More

Have dined here several times in the last couple of years always very impressed with the food, but today opted for the fish and chips and was disappointed that the chips were of the nasty frozen variety you'd expect in a school cafeteria, the fish was prepared to the usual high standard expected here but the nasty fries let the...

The whole experience was phenomenal. From the stylish décor, to the friendly waiting staff and the delicious food. Within their first taste of their meal everyone at the table was expressing their delight. The food was flavoursome and filling, well presented and we all agreed that it was one of the best meals we have ever had. It was great... More
