The sausages and Cajun chicken were delightful. Nice wine selection and very attentive service. Definitely worth a visit.

Always consistent. We have enjoyed both breakfast and dinner inside and outside. Lovely atmosphere and staff always very good. My favourite is the two for one Paella night on Wednesdays. Always have their wine choice of the day.

We have been here several times usually before a movie at Rialto. Consistently reliable food with a Mediterranean flavour, good staff and good value.

Dinner with family where we enjoyed a Pinot Noir with a selection of Tapas (chili prawns are killer!!) and then mains. Try the Greek meatballs - vegetables were el dente and sauce was delicious. Service was excellent - highly recommend as casual dinner spot.

Entering Safran's is like stepping into all that is great about a European restaurant. The interior decor and ambience has been done to perfection and as a consequence the projected character is exceptional. Both the owners and staff are friendly, provide excellent service, and as they are mostly from Europe, portray that true european spirit. The meals themselves have that... More

Dinner again at Safran tonight. We've been here several times over the last few years. The food is always tasty and high quality. Great ambience and always friendly staff. Nice to be able to sit outside on a warm evening. Well located near cinemas and shops. Will come back again!

This cafe does one of the best big breakfasts I have had. The food is well cooked and presented and includes meatballs which is a bit unusual but great. The service is excellent and friendly and they do the best coffee. Highly recommend.

This place has really gone down hill since our last visit in 2014!!! We were there early on Sunday morning to have brunch - early service was good but it all went pear shaped after that. Despite being quiet it took almost 40 minutes after ordering to get our brunch. I almost vomited after eating the meatball which when I... More
