Great setting, fantastic service and extremely guest orientated. We were a table of 8, the restaurant was busy and nothing was too much trouble. What the food lacked was complemented by the overall experience. Will definitely be back. Great for large groups or intimate occasions.

So let me first say that we were a very big group and the restaurant coped with the numbers. Although the service was slow, every one was served at the same time and everyone's food was good. The menu is tired, but trustworthy and the wine list is interesting. The setting is of course always the cherry on top

Atmosphere, staff and the food. Just lovely. Try the Mediterranean styled fish. They are so delicious.

Very upmarket restaurant, celebrated a birthday a couple of years ago here. I have not been there for about a year but I would certainly recommend this place for a great meal and beautiful surroundings

Went with a large group and the restaurant was able to handle without issue. Food was still excellent. They were also attentive with service - just the right amount. Great views of the golf course.

This is like the 5th time I have been here and the food is still fantastic as is the service. I cannot think of one thing that is negative there.

3 April 2016: again, outstanding cuisine & service. One problem, though. I had seven guests and stupidly did not register that a 10% service charge was included for tables of eight or more (standard practice), so I added about 13% tip to the total amount, bringing the tip to about 25% on the basic charge and the final bill to...

Nice setting with a green view from the terrazza. Friendly service and excellent food. Definitely one of our favorites. Also nice to chill out with a glass of wine. Great place.

We enjoyed our wedding anniversary in Blu Saffron, first time we have been there. Beautiful area. We were presented with the evening specials and the food was served quickly, although there quite a number of guests. The food was divine! It has safe parking as it is situated on a golf course.

I had friends and family to a table d'Hote lunch to mark my 70th Birthday in January. It was made very easy by competent staff to choose the private room, menu and wines in advance and to find it all looking spiffing when when we arrived. The food was well presented and all the dishes tasted just as good. We... More
