We had a business dinner with a colleague and friend, and sat outside on the terrace. The service was excellent, as was the food, and with the mild temperature of the evening, it was really lovely sitting outside. The the reason for only giving a four-rating, is that the only downside, was the smoking around us. We had to walk... More

This must rate among the best, if not the very best, restaurants in Pretoria. Interesting menu with old favourites such as springbok carpaccio, but the specials presented with passion and detail are what makes the experience memorable. On the evening I chose a spicy calamari and chorizo starter (quite hot, steer away if you don't like spicy food) and a... More

We took visitors from Namibia, to Blu Saffron. What a night to remember. Warm friendly greetings. Great service. But the food? Outstanding. I have no other words. Mushroom and biltong soup. Unbelievable. Best I have ever had. The braised short rib was beautifully done. Spiced just right and slow cooked to perfection. Excellent. Well done.

Outdoor seating overlooking the golf course is s wonderful at sunset. Very comfortable atmosphere. Service in s outstanding. The gentleman describing the food had our mouths watering. The cream of mushroom soup with biltong is a signature dish--possibly the best soup I have ever eaten. Prawns were excellent. Beef short rib was tasty but a little spicy. Highly recommend eating...

Wonderful evening of gastronomic delight! The setting is great- overlooks the golf course. Staff very efficient and description of "specials" will leave you salivating! Food presentation and taste experience marvelous! The only slight discomfort was the 'smoking policy' - we first wanted outside seating but it was windy and we had many smokers. Later on around the pub area also... More

If you are coming here for dinner, book pre-drinks on the terrace as it is delightful to overlook the golf course at sunset and then move inside for your meal. The Maitre d' is a piece of theatre as he describes each of the specials in turn - you feel he is cooking each dish just for you. I have... More
