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.

I have had lunches and dinner here with family, friends and also for business reasons and have never been disappointed! I highly recommend it to anyone who asks. The menu is interesting and personally presented in the most entertaining manner and there is plenty to suit even the most discerning palette :)

This restaurant is part of the Pretoria Country Club and is always quite busy. However it is run very efficiently and I have never experienced slow service there. Private rooms are available for group dining. The menu is extensive and you will certainly find a dish to your liking. If great steaks or game are your fare you will be... More

We have supper regularly and I love this place. Sitting on the varanda of this restaurant next to the Oldest Golfcourse in Pretoria on a summer evening is so relaxing and it is just beautiful. All the staff are very friendly and they will guide you to a wonderful meal.
