Review of Saffron

Restaurant details
Dining options: Late Night, Breakfast, Reservations
Description: The critically acclaimed Saffron Restaurant at Amorita Resort is inspired by the seasons and specialties in Bohol. The all-day menu, developed by Chef Raphael Ongchiong, emphasizes freshness, clarity of ingredients, and local availability. Saffron offers a thoughtful reinterpretation of Boholano heritage cuisine, alongside a wide range of Continental and Asian food favorites. The Chef's culinary artistry is met with an excellent selection of wines, signature cocktails, and gourmet beverages. A 162-seat dining venue, Saffron is casual and welcoming, with a decor to match. Sea-inspired accent lighting, all-weather woven furniture, and hand-carved driftwood create a dramatic poolside ambiance that serves to elevate guests' dining experience.

Hi Ali A!

Thank you so much for this review. We're glad that you consider us one of the best restaurants you've had although there probably some changes that we need to put our attention into. Saffron Restaurant actually has recently introduced a new and improved menu that I'm sure will provide our guests with a better experience while dining at Saffron. You might want to try these new dishes for yourself and hopefully, this will give you a better experience. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and we hope you can dine with us again in the future.

Not a great place for dinner. Food is okay, we finished everything because we were hungry and hadn’t eaten the whole day. But otherwise wouldn’t go back. Portions were small and prices are high.
Service was poor. Took them 20 minutes to bring a milkshake (which was sitting in the bar for more than 5 minutes because our waitress was too busy)

Breakfast buffet is also okay. Few local dishes along with eggs, bacon, cereals....
But they’re never ready at 6 when we were told that breakfast starts at 6. There’s only papaya in fruits and some of the food doesn’t even come until 7

Quality of food was very good, service was very good, environment was lovely - but not enough food on plate for a main course - I was left hungrey!!! Please add a portion of potatoes/ rice/ pasta etc and a more generous portion of vegetables or salad I am only a small woman but it wasn't enough, and I shouldn't have to order a starter or dessert, just to get enough to eat!

Have been eating on roadside eateries and grills last week or so, at least once a day, brunch mostly, and usually we dine at some restaurant. Found that to be on top when we filter for seafood. Went there, even that we weren’t properly dressed for the place we decided to stay. Food was ok but at the end my belly was suspiciously bloated. And here I am at 4 am writing this review while sitting on the toilet. I will always avoid expensive restaurants from now on, while in Asia.

Delicious seafood in a quiet corner in alona beach. Certainly one of the best place in panglao. The dessert is been a stunning surprise.
Location and service are excellent.
A secret place to be discovered.
