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

We were staying in the hotel across the road (Mercure in Ayr) and wanted to try somewhere different from the hotel. We saw Saffys and wandered across. 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

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!
