Had lunch at this restaurant on the rooftop of the beautiful haveli. The spaghetti is good. Not too pricey. View of street life is interesting. Fort view is nice too.

If you're travelling to Jaisalmer, a visit to Saffron should be compulsory. Located of the roof of the Hotel Nachana Haveli you don't need to be a guest of the hotel to use the restaurant and in fact when we stayed there the restaurant was made up from a mix of guests and other visitors. They have a wide range... More

There are great views of the fort from the rooftop dining area. The curries and rice were yummy. A great place to take a break when shopping around Ghandhi Chowk.

We went to Saffron for dinner and we loved the setting of the restaurant and the views. There was some folk music too, feeling truly in the desert! Food was alright, we had the sizzler and chow mein and wasn't too impressed, however it is worthy a visit in the evening!

I only ate breakfast at this place but the cheese omelette was, by far, the best omelette I've ever had; I actually ordered another after the first!
