About
Azafrán - the Spanish word for saffron - is more than a restaurant, it is a unique culinary journey with gracious European-style service. Like the spice itself, Azafrán is a subtle, luxurious difference that must be experienced to be fully understood. Executive Chef, Andreas Fischer, brings a fresh, sustainable and refined approach to the kitchen, using only the finest local ingredients for a modern mix of classics from his mother's kitchen, innovative Mediterranean cuisine and refined European technique. To enhance your meal, find perfect pairings within the carefully curated selection of vintages from emerging Mexican vineyards, organic wines from Chile, and fine French and Italian labels.

We came in for a quick bite. Great food and a very nice wine list. The staff knows what they are talking about when you ask opinions. Great service. Highly recommended.

This restaurant used to be good when Michels. Now it's average. Had a pesto linguine that used a fat noodle and had no pesto flavour at all. Ate two bites. They did compensate me with a glass of wine though. wouldn't return

What a horrible meal. The crispy pork belly was not crispy and was so tough it was so not worth it - especially at the price they asked. While they did comp the meal it was sadly disappointing. Not going back.
