Elegance and fusion

The “fusion” offered in this elegantly decorated restaurant is optional.

Service is slow beyond the norm and completely lacking when we needed more water etc. The portions were ridiculously small and uninteresting. We had a fish focused selection of dishes. The presentation was pathetic on some of the dishes. I was very surprised as some of the dishes ordered ended up being quite different from the description. Maybe I expected... More

We had the pleasure to eat st Saffron last year and I was more than happy to go back with some friends. The restaurant is very well designed and in summer time has tables outside on the terrace. Food is either fusion with an Asian influence or you can have revised Classic Italian . Both choice for our group were... More

The place is stylish, the food is excellent, the service is great: the perfect place to be when you want to cherish yourself and taste a not everyday dishes. It's more nice in spring and summer when you can eat outside on the "terrace". The wine choice is wide with a good quality, just go there when you are not... More

The place is fancy, the food is cheap. I did not get what they are trying to do: it's not an asian restaurant, it's not fusion and it's not traditional. It seems that a drunk guy wrote the menu. No style at all, small portions and too expensive. If you don't have any idea about international food that's a place... More
