From the location, the ambience, the food and the service this restaurant gets 5 stars. So good, the white marlin on the menu is possibly the best fish dish I've ever tasted! Go on and treat yourself, you will not be disappointed.

By far the the best restaurant in Bohol. So good we came back 3 times during our 12 day trip. The food is well prepared and cooked correctly (something which is not a given in Bohol region).

We came to enjoy the Friday evening buffet. First of all the view is beautiful and the music is very relaxing. The food was delicious and the variety was large, the cocktails were accurately done and on the highest level. The restaurant staff was very professional and welcoming. With that been said, the price for these services is not cheap.... More

I had lunch here, Amorita is a huge resort and this is one of their restaurant within their infinity pool, imagine the view just wow!. Service is good but food takes a little time to arrive so better order first before you enjoy the view. Food? nicely presented and taste good.. overall, a must visit resto when in alona beach.

I had my heaviest breakfast in Saffron. I love the all the food in buffet area. Especially, the salad. Those lettuce is the best, partnered with Balsamic dressing and different kinds of veggies in salad station. Surely, we will back with our own families. Thank you!

The critically acclaimed Saffron Restaurant at Amorita Resort is inspired by the seasons and specialties in Bohol. The all-day menu, developed by Chef Raphael Ongchiong, emphasizes freshness, clarity of ingredients, and local availability. Saffron offers a thoughtful reinterpretation of Boholano heritage cuisine, alongside a wide range of Continental and Asian food favorites. The Chef's culinary artistry is met with an excellent selection of wines, signature cocktails, and gourmet beverages.

A 162-seat dining venue, Saffron is casual and welcoming, with a decor to match. Sea-inspired accent lighting, all-weather woven furniture, and hand-carved driftwood create a dramatic poolside ambiance that serves to elevate guests' dining experience.
