Tired of Sausage? Go to Savanna!

After a few days of rather good German food we needed a change. We made the right choice with Savanna. We arrived a little late on a Sunday evening and found the place full. We were told that if we wanted to have a drink outside they would seat us when someone left. It was a bit chilly out... read more

I had dinner there with 4 friends. The choice of food was good, and so was the food - I had a vegetarian burger with sweet potato fries, I liked it! The only reason I have given 3 points and not 4 is that the service was very slow. The restaurant was not very busy, nevertheless it took ages for... More

I like the place. I was wondering what could South African food be like and mostly it's about meat. The food is nice especially the sweet potatoes chips they ate yummy. Also the vegetables are so fresh ans tasty. The prices are a bit on the high end but it's a nice place to visit.

A vibrant restaurant with a great menu, and good selection of wine by the glass. I had the hake which was very well cooked. The sweet potatoes chips were great. We booked - it was packed so I would recommend booking.

Best place I ate all weekend, called in on a Sunday evening as part of a large party the staff were happy to accommodate us and the waitress who served us was very friendly and made the experience better. If we had any queries about the different meats she was happy to give advice and was attentive during the course... More

I wasn't sure what to expect when I saw the elephant head outside the restaurant, it certainly gave it a theme restaurant feel. However I was very pleasantly surprised by the excellent shrimps I had for a starter. There is an excellent selection of cocktails too and Wednesday they're all €5

From the moment we entered to the moment we left - the staff was there to look after us - excellent service and great personalities. The food was also excellent. Wine perfect match. If I... More

We had a fabulous dining experience at Savanna. This restaurant is truly South African from the food and decor to the staff and wine! We had some of the best game meat we have ever had (certainly some of the best you will find in Germany, if not all of Europe) and enjoyed lovely imported wine! The unique South African... More
