Saga is a modern, international food restaurant where clients can not only delight themselves with exquisite dishes, but also enjoy the tropical view like atmosphere combined with its modern architecture. In Saga, there is a prevalence of modernism in both its food and design while contrasting with the tropical ambiance of the landscape. In Saga, international food is transformed with the blending of tastes from different parts of the world. The experience is only enhanced by its already renowned gourmet bakery.

Fantastic deserts

We ended here after dinner for coffee and desert. We got a desert sampler and it was all really delicious. Everything else about the restaurant was also top quality. I can't speak to the main dishes, but they all look really good on the way in :)

This restaurant has a nice menu and the sushi was excellent. My husband had a steak, it was tender and delicious. Nice wine selection.

Went there for Valentine's. Not so much to say, my steak was quite good, but nothing extarordinary, just as good as the one I've tried in other places. The service was fairly good, no complaints really.

I enjoyed my dinner at Saga. The food was great, the service prompt and courteous. The restaurant was quite lively and occupied even on a week night! The sushi had too much rice for my taste, nonetheless tasted good. The service is prompt and the location is great. I enjoyed watching people go by! Highly recommended!

In a high end of the private hospital commercial area, this restaurant, is not only pricey, but well worth the effort getting there and also the price. Excellent sushi.

Nice place, good price. You should definitely go! We were a relatively big group (15 pax) and got a good table, great beverages and the food didn't take long to get to the table. Good place for business activities and also if you want to have a nice dinner on a regular day.

Excellent restaurant, well located and good service, good option if you want to share appetizer instead of entries, I went with a colleague and ordered five plates, sushi, carpaccio, salad, sashimi, beef.. Their option of artesian beer is limited but good! Great place to have a good conversation, good environment, trendy place!

Enjoyed dinner at Saga for my first time. the waiter was great, helped direct me to food I could eat with my food allergy, and everything tasted great! Was very enjoyable and definitely will go back. A great place to try for fish, sushi or international cuisine.

Just a few words: excellent in everything!!! Besides the food, which is wonderful, I like the quickness of their service. You have your order in the table no later than 10 minutes after the waitress went to ask you what do you want.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the creative entrées, salads, main courses and sandwich options on the menu. I had Snook crusted with Macedonia nuts and it was wonderful. My wife had a three fish (Snook, tuna and salmon) dinner. The vegetables were very good and prepared perfectly. It was quiet enough in the back room for a hard of... More
