I visited Saffy's Cafe tonight with my husband. The food was amazing and the service was rapid. Strange as it might sound the rest rooms were also extremely clean and lovely looking. Well worth visiting!!

I also ordered the sticky toffee sundae and again I was impressed and I am a big fan of dessert. Staff very friendly, chef is very talented and I would... More

Six of us had dinner here recently and we were all extremely impressed. There was an extensive menu but we all selected from the 'specials' menu. The presentation of the meal was very good and the quality was excellent. We would highly recommend a visit.

This restaurant was suggested as ideal for a good lunch. Situated across from the Mercure Hotel, we arrived and were quickly seated. Menus were provided with more than an abundant selection of choices. We ordered and were served quickly and efficiently, Pieroni on draught. Howeve the portion supplied for lunch was huge, good food but far too much. Liked the... More

We had a delicious birthday dinner in Saffy's. Several starters, all generously portioned. Variety of mains. All arrived to table at same time, beautifully presented and piping hot. Delicious desserts. Service helpful and unobtrusive. Staff all looked purposeful and busy. Table cleared swiftly and orders taken promptly on what appeared to be a very busy Saturday night. Not a single... More

And I can see why. Great food (sea bass salad and Belgian waffle), at a good price, nice service, nice atmosphere. Best meal out for the money in years. Scraped the plates with my cutlery.

It had been many years since last visiting this restaurant, it was previously a different name. Anyway, my wife and I plus 4 friends visited Saffy's and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The atmosphere on a Wednesday evening was very good, it was very busy. The food was excellent, with a very varied menu. As with everywhere else the price of... More

Easily the best meal of our week and served by helpful friendly staff. I had chicken nachos and sticky Mexican chicken with saffron rice, both spot on. The Mexican chicken was served with a veg and chorizo medley which was cooked perfectly. The missus had tomato and red pepper soup followed by Cajun spiced salmon and zingy cous cous salad... More
