“Great food, shame about the staff”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Got there - they didn't have our booking - great start! Started with the only Italian white wine offered by the glass, a Pinot Grigio and they might as well have brought flat lemonade. Food was great, my wife was particularly impressed which is good enough for me, but the (male) staff were not on this planet - one seemed particularly off-hand and getting the bill was like climbing Mount Everest. Would happily go back but would look out for other staff.

“Fantastic food and exceptional service”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

My husband and I have visited Sarafina every two or three weeks over the last few years and have always had excellent food and been made to feel extremely welcome by the staff. The menu offers a wide variety of dishes and the food is always presented well and of high quality. The decor is smart and atmosphere very welcoming, and as a result this restaurant seems to fit the bill for most occasions whether you want a meal out with friends, family or romantic meal as a couple. We choose to go back time and time again because the staff are so accommodating and friendly, without being intrusive. Our favourite restaurant - definitely worth a visit.

“Ticked most of our boxes”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Booked at short notice for a Saturday evening and this was no problem. Service efficient and friendly, good menu and wine choice. Nicely presented and delicious food, though unfortunately the kitchen got one of our orders wrong which was the only real negative point of the evening. Definitely worth a visit.

“Smart quality Italian restaurant”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

There was a large party of us(24),so checking and ordering from the on-line menu meant everyone got the food they wanted,and the kitchen could plan ahead to ensure quality.So many people meant we ate a good cross section of the menu,from pizza via pasta through to good quality steaks with excellent sauces.The decor is clean modern and stylish,with good space between tables,and not too noisy.Service was relaxed(sometimes a little too relaxed)but everyones courses arrived together(not always the case when many are to be served).
portions were more than sufficient.I was very satisfied with my starter of ribs,main of chicken risotto,and creme bruile sweet.Others were very pleased with their choices.
All in all,excellent
