A special venue

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... read more

We selected their standard menu B. The selection of starters, main courses and desert was excellent. I received extremely positive feedback from every guest.

A lovely evening out with friends at the Blu Saffron. First and above all, the service is exceptional, the best I have experienced in Pretoria. My duck l'orange was way too sweet for my palate and I didn't enjoy it but that is personal, the rest of the party all had great meals. The decor is stylish and the place... More

A great little restaurant overlooking the golf course, situated next to the Pretoria country club. The service here is excellent and attentive. They do know how to treat patrons. The menu is small but well thought out. The animated chef gave us a good explanation on that evenings special and how everything is meticulously being prepared. I had a kudu... More

Had no real expectations; went with friends for a birthday. I have been well impressed with both the food and the exceptional service. The duck a l'orange was probably the best I had, and the Ferrero Rocher desert was good enough to make me return for this alone!

Not having been to Pretoria in a while, we decided to treat ourselves to a good restaurant. The setting at the Pretoria Country Club is lovely and we looked forward to a great meal, or so we thought. I ordered medallions of fillet. The fillet was beautifully cooked. Alas, the mustard sauce seemed to have came unadulterated out of a... More

The setting of this restaurant is just so lovely with the golf course spread out in front of it. The food is always divine, the waitresses very well trained and the owners are very attentive. My friends and I have eaten here regularly for many years and will continue to do so.
