We ate here the first day of our trip and I ordered a chicken pizza. The pizza had a lot of green toppings and the chicken was well cooked. The pizza was, however, a bit small and if you're trying to eat only one restaurant...More

We ordered the worst lobster pizza I have ever tried. Lobster was undercooked and simply inedible. Will never go again. Restaurant was also poorly cleaned!

Visited Saffran as we read reviews it was good for gluten free food. I suppose in comparison to a lot of Iceland the fact they were knowledgeable of what gluten was is a bonus but don't get your hopes up like I did! It was...More

Very good food! Although possibly the world’s smallest garlic naan and not very tasty (cost only 300 ISK though so no big deal). I’ve visited Saffran on Dalvegur, Kopavogur, Iceland several times and never been disappointed.

Saffran is located at the back of a small shopping centre on the far side of the town centre past the football stadium. We first noticed it when we got off the number 14 bus right outside and checked out the menu. We’d been looking...More

We have eaten here twice during our stay and everything we've had has been delicious. But one of our group is a vegetarian and there are limited options here. That is the only reason we gave it a 4 rating vs a 5. If you...More

The food is fresh and delicious. The service is fast and nice, the food excellent. However we were 3 vegetarians and the choice was not good. We could choose one pizza which was good, but they could do so much better with all these ingredients...More
