A family affair

We visit Blu Saffron twice a year for my both my parents birthdays. And with each visit it gets more and more cosy. The service is brilliant, waiters are on their toes and always ready to assist. The wine list is lovely and with wines from across the world the selection is outstanding. The food is... read more

Blu Saffron is an firm favourite in Pretoria, have been going for many years and consistently provides quality food, good service a a scenic location. Although I did not enjoy a full meal today, my choice of tomato and basil soup on a slightly gray day in Pretoria turned into an extremely positive experience. Firstly, it is freshly made, not...

This is one of the most upmarket restaurants in Pretoria East located at Waterkloof Country Club. It has a nice atmosphere and you dress up when you visit this restaurant. The food is pricey but beyond excellent. The service is very good, the menu offers a wide variety of choice which includes game dishes. Ideal place to go for a... More

Unfriendly staff and arrogant managers made an unpleasant dining experience even worse! What should have been a pleasant and enjoyable date night turned into a series of disappointing meals, filthy cutlery, rude management and non-existent service. What an absolute disgrace. I will most definitely never support them again.

A restaurant with a lovely view over the golf course but also with private rooms for special celebrations. For this celebration one of the private rooms was chosen, which kept the noise of other patrons at bay. Somehow we all opted for the delicious Biltong and Mushroom soup as a starter (it was cold outside!!), followed by different main courses.... More

This is a lovely restaurant, with specialities which are well worth trying. Guests are treated professionally, and it's a lovely place to visit with friends.
