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

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.

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.

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!
