Food was great, setting was great and the service was exceptional. The way the manager explained the food was such that you could actually taste the food just from his explanation - fantastic! However, when you enter the restaurant, the first thing you notice is the terrible smell of smoking. The bar is next to the entrance and filled with... More

From the moment you walk in grumpy to the moment you leave with a smile it is a worth while experience. The food is well priced and sitting outside makes you think you have arrived. Always a nice place to meet my friends for a tranquil lunch break

The best cuisine and service in Pretoria and I have dined in Paris etc. The food and wine menu is excellent. You have to book as they are very popular. This is that Special Occasion restaurant.

Food is consistently delicious featuring classically prepared traditional dishes as well as local fare. Great wine selections and delicious desserts, all in a lovely, golf course setting.

We love taking our friends and family here for supper mostly, but they offer a fantastic view over the Pretoria Country Club, so very nice to sit outside as well. Food always of high standard, and the atmosphere is great!

Blu Saffron is located right next to the 1st tee of the Pretoria Country Club. Whilst enjoying your meal you can enjoy the great view of the golf course and even watch golfers teeing off in front of your eyes. The wine menu is superb. Blu Saffron has a collection of fine wines from South Africa's best cellars. There is... More

Excellent service, menu with a good variety, excellent food preparation. We could sit back and relax and just enjoy the evening. The recommendations were good and the wine list also. Will most definitely go back

Excellent experience from starter to desert. You need to order the off menu Schalk Burger Number 6 Wine to complete your experience.

We were there in June 2013. The food was of a high quality. The same could however not be said about the pregnant waitress's service. She seemed more eager to flirt and talk to the head chef (probably the father)
