As part of the Pretoria country club, they have a vast amount of out-door sitting overlooking lush green gardens of the club. A comprehensive wine list, with a well prepared menu - I had a sirloin steak - which of good quality and well prepared - all came together with great effect.

Everything was perfect. The food, the wine, the service and the atmosphere was excellent. The outside area is lovely for summer nights in Pretoria. Truly has become one of my favorite restaurants in the city.

always of a high standard - not a matter of style over substance as is the case with so many newer restaurants. Lovely views over the country club and good value for money. We return here often

We were a group of four who had dinner here on a Saturday evening. It was a perfect summer evening to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The food was just delicious, as were the cocktails. There was quite significant overcharge error on our bill, but this was easily sorted out in an apologetic and professional manner. Look forward...

I thoroughly enjoyed the private dining room which was booked for our year end function - with the privacy and continual service - but even more so, the Two Cheeses Salad I had as a main course. The size of the salad assured me that I only needed this one course. The combination of the cheeses, strawberries and rocket, with... More

We met with friends some of whom we hadn't seen for twenty years. The venue was lovely with a lively ambience. The maitre d' was great and he did a wonderful presentation of the specials. The Kingklip fish done in two different styles lived up to the presentation, however the vegetables seem to be an afterthought on the plate. Much... More

Blu Saffron is one of the best restaurants to eat in the East of Pretoria. It is upmarket in every way and ideal for a celebration or a special occasion. The menu has a big variety and the plating of the food is excellent. Very busy one has to make a reservation.
