We visited the restaurant for a special occasion. Things started out OK with the waiter coming around and explaining the different meals on offer for the day. We then ordered our drinks and waited forever. The waiter came around asking for our orders and I explained to him that it is pathetic for him to expect me to order my... More

Really unique setting. Either private dining or open plan or patio. Loved the food and presentation. Excellent wine selection. A bit pricey but well worth the dining experience

Beautiful tranquil setting. Great food and service. Nice bar area for pre-meal rendezvous. Take a note book to jot down the specials as these are numerous and eloquently revealed by the managers. Caters for cosy couples dining to corporate groups. Spoil yourself.

This is one of my all time favorite classic restaurants. A place I go to when I know what I want and what I will get. Service and food is excellent and if they have the calves liver on the special board it is a must have!!

A lovely restaurant with attentive, professional and friendly service. A good selection of wines and informed advice from the staff made this a most pleasurable evening. Excellent home made cheesecake rounded off a memorable evening. Highly recommended

We emailed for a reservation from the U.S. I can't say enough about this restaurant. Before we sat down at our table, we had drinks at the bar which was cozy and relaxing, especially after just finishing golf. Excellent service by our waiters, but when I asked one of the owners what an appetizer was he said he would bring... More

Blue Saffron is a very nice restaurant with excellent food and a fabulous wine list. Before going to your table you can have drink in the bar. They have a lot of choice for drinks. The menu is very nice and it is difficult to choose every time we go there. Excellent service with eye for detail.

Fantastic food. Chef was hands on, excellent service provided by the waiters. We were a large group as this a honorary dinner in honour of a special man who heads up a large company. Restaurant was at the top of their game all night. Well done.
