We had marvelous lunch at De Saffraan, the food was beautifully presented and delicious. We sat outside and appreciated the view and the boats passing by. The service was perfect, the waitress explained carefully about the ingredients used to prepare each dish. It's worth every euro that we've paid for it! We'll be back!

Visited De Saffraan with colleagues who are all experienced in restaurants and we were all overwhelmed. The choice of ingredients, the simplicity of the dishes and the excellence of the tastes surprised all of us. Combined with a good service and a fair price De Saffraan is just an excellent restaurant. Absolute recommendation!
