Meal with friend for a catch up

Didn't know whether to book or not as it was a Wednesday evening but glad I did it was quite busy just enough to give an atmosphere and not have to worry about everyone hearing your conversation. The service was speedy and the food excellent I had sea bass and it was cooked to perfection. When we... read more

Just opposite the Mercue Hotel, Saffy's is a wonderful little restaurant with very helpful staff and delicious food. There is a great vegetarian selection, and they were also very accommodating with other dietary requirements. Helpful throughout and always attentive but not intrusive, our evening spent at Saffy's was a very pleasant experience. The range on the menu was impressive, and... More

Returned last week on a quiet Tuesday night to find the restaurant still has the same high standards and it's still my favourite in Ayr. Lamb tagine and salmon curry were first class. Wine also very good. Looking forward to next visit in a months time.

Ate at Saffy's with my parents, both of whom had previously visited. It was a last minute decision and as such we had not booked a table. The restaurant was very busy and only two staff were on duty front of house, so they were a little under pressure. After short wait a table was prepared for us. It took... More

Looked up the menu ahead and Saffy's seemed pretty Vegan-Friendly. I've been eating vegan for around a month but prior to my dietary switch I ate in restraunts around Ayr for many years averaging two or three times a week. It's a tradition of our family to eat together every Sunday. I've eaten at Saffys on many occasions and enjoyed... More

Saw this little place from our hotel and thought we'd give it a try after reading TripAdvisor reviews. Very warm welcome and they have tried to give an authentic Bistro feel inside. Fillet topped with haggis sounded interesting so ordered it and didn't disappoint. Decent wine and pretty good value. If you're in the area give it a try

We have been here often, but the last time was disappointing- we had to leave our seat to allow staff access to the beer barrel s in a cupboard beside our table. The door to this dingy cupboard was left open for about twenty minutes- staff continued serving diners- and our starters arrived. Yup - they'd forgotten to complete the... More

Simple but good menu, Good was excellent. Service was very good. Not expensive at all for the quality. I recommend it for a relaxed evening with friends or family.
