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

Great place, Great Food , Great ambiance, Great Service, with the best view in Pretoria! Situated at the Pretoria Country Club, with outside seating overlooking the 1st tee of the Golf course.

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.

There are few restaurants in Pretoria with the same spirit, and The Blu Saffron is one of the best. There you will find amazing service, hot bread, excelent excelent choice of fish, meat and poutry. The restaurant is inside the Golf club, so the atmosphere is fantastic. The outside tables are the best. Perfect place for celebrations and romantic meal.

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

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
