Good food & nice service

Food was very good, service was nice and friendly we had to wait a little bit for the table but we didn't book in advance and a party of 10 is not easy to accommodate :)

We went to Zafran last night-a group of five to celebrate a birthday. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was excellent and very good value for money. There was a good choice on the menu as well. There were lots of other diners there enjoying the good food and atmosphere. I recommend Zafran as a great place for... More

There were eight in our party and all of our meals were fantastic. I had the beef strogganoff and it was really delicious. The service was the best we've experienced in a long time, the waitress was just lovely. Thank you! The meal was great value for money, you can even bring in your own wine for a corkage fee!...

My partner and I are regular customers at Zafran. I always order the vegetable lasagne, it really is excellent. The décor is comfortable and warm and the service, like the food, is always excellent. By far the best restaurant in the Twin Towns area.

Lovely food, however I ordered garlic potatoes and expected sliced potatoes in a creamy garlic sauce but got diced deep fried potato cubes in garlic butter. They were nice enough just not what I,d expected. Gorgeous steaks!!

I'm not sure how this dingy little place merits 5 stars. We ate there recently and honestly the best I can do is give it 2.5 stars. Both my husband and I felt the food was of take away quality, ie, frozen chips, cheap supermarket Cuisine de France bread rolls used, basic reheated stuff, that tastes ok at a push.... More
