We were genuinely welcomed into the restaurant and got seated next to their wine cabinet. The restaurant looked really impressive and very fancy. As we did some shopping before going to the restaurant, we put the stuff beside our seats. the waitress then had to pick a wine from the cabinet and clearly got frustrated as it was difficult for...

We had a lovely meal here with family, fantastic service and lovely food at an eye watering price. I would say this restaurant is for adults with deep pockets, perfect for a special night out and presentation was as perfect as the food

We had an excellent 7-course dinner at De Saffraan. The food is great and all kinds of tastes will pass by. The service is excellent, really, my compliments to the staff. Matching wines on top of your dinner is to be advised. Atmosphere is nice, on an old sailing boat in the Eem-harbour.

Great atmosphere, dinner on a boat, good service. The one-bite-size dinner isnt really my thing..for the same price I rather go to my favorite restaurant in Delft. They serve expensive water...wine was good though.

A good dinner consists of three ‘ingredients’, good food, good company and good service. The order of which depends on your personal preferences. De Saffraan lost its Michelin star a couple of years ago. If I were a Michelin inspector, would I give it back? Let’s start with the food. If you love a more straightforward, honest, pure style of...

We had marvelous lunch at De Saffraan, the food was beautifully presented and delicious. We sat outside and appreciated the view and the boats passing by. The service was perfect, the waitress explained carefully about the ingredients used to prepare each dish. It's worth every euro that we've paid for it! We'll be back!

If you love good food, this is the place to go in Amersfoort! A bit on the fancy side of the spectrum, but still a good option to go eat with friends or family. Delicious food, very competent and friendly personnel.

Visited De Saffraan with colleagues who are all experienced in restaurants and we were all overwhelmed. The choice of ingredients, the simplicity of the dishes and the excellence of the tastes surprised all of us. Combined with a good service and a fair price De Saffraan is just an excellent restaurant. Absolute recommendation!
