Can get busy

Food was way better than expected and the staff were extremely polite and brilliant with our children, despite having to clean up a war-zone each time they'd finished eating. :-) The food on offer was varied and tasty and a lot better than other buffet restaurants I've used.

If you are looking for a brunch that has it all and the best environment for a good time, this is the place for you. I enjoyed it the first visit and by the second visit I was in love. We are not dating steady. I love to go to Friday brunch here and all the others are second best.

We attended a brunch in Saffron last Friday. I had been before and it was the same standard as before, just a little more crowded than I used to remember and a little bit squashed. The food was great as always and there are a lot of drinks stands all kinds of alcoholic fruit drinks, beer, whiskeys, shots (for the... More

What a great buffet breakfast. You can chose from a variety of cuisines from american, Indian, Lebanese, Japanese, English and much more. Fresh juice, crispy bacon, yumy fresh yogurt and what not. Heaven for a food lover :)

We nevertheless had dinner in the Atlantis Chinese restaurant Safron which we liked three years ago. Here also the quality has changed and I would not recommend to spend your... More

This was the easiest restaurant for us to eat at after reaching the hotel 13+ hours after leaving Boston, so we weren't being picky. The buffet dinner was 250dh each, which came to about $65 apiece. The food was good, and plentiful, but we were so tired and airplane gross we couldn't really take advantage, not even of the crepe... More
