my wife and I were looking for a quality late lunch spot in Pretoria. Blu Saffron was perfect. Although the outdoor area was fully booked we got a decent table inside. The specials were explained in detail and the service was attentive. My prawn starter was great, my wife's mussels tasty but the presentation awkward. Both our mains (kudu and... More

My wife and I were part of a group of about 80-100 people that came together for a yearend function. As always the atmosphere, reception and service was perfect. as main course choices could be made from rump steak, Kingklip and duck.

We had a birthday lunch at this venue. I was told that personal service was a trait of Blu Saffron. Apart from the dramatic special offer presentation there was nothing special about the food, wine or venue. my recommended Koedoe steak was cold and definitely not as tender as butter as suggested by the presentation. As it was my daughter's... More

I will go to Blu Saffron with the idea of only having a healthy 200g steak and veggies, but once the staff have finished their presentation of the days specials, you wished you could have been there since lunch to have space to try it all, starters to desserts. Attentive and professional staff. Excellent location and atmosphere on the golf... More

Recently celebrated a birthday at this restaurant. Efficient Service in a delightful setting. Prawns Tempura with accompanying sauces excellent and the main, rib eye steak was cooked to perfection. Very pleasant overall!

Had Sunday lunch with family and friends in private dining room overlooking the golf course. Food was well prepared and presented. Good wine and single-malt selection. Really enjoyed the experience! Sometimes an over-ambitious maitre 'd can be overbearing but this one kept a good balance and some people around the table was very impressed with his recommendations! Will go back!

Blu Saffron is set in the lovely, relaxed and lush grounds of the Pretoria Country Club. There is safe parking. Everything I have had from the menu has been fresh, tasty and extremely enjoyable. They also have a good list of wines to choose from.

Had a superb business dinner here however intend on returning back with my partner. The chef / owner talks with passion about his food and believes things should be done a certain way. For example a rib eye on the bone comes out the kitchen only medium rare which can be a problem for some but I believe shows that... More

As a group of ladies we have been having lunch at this restaurant for a long time and we are always received and treated with professional care and friendliness. The specials menus change every so often and fresh, season ingredients are used to make very tasty dishes.
