I really enjoyed this restaurant. It was our first time eating there and we were guests of friends. The location is great, the staff excellent, the food really good and is obviously popular with the locals. Great art displayed all over. Good cellar.

Absolutely stunning view and the whole ambiance was excellent and classy. The manager went through the options that were not on the menu and took the food order himself. Very tasty food and well worth a try

Beautiful and relaxing setting perfect for a Sunday lunch with no stress. Very friendly and good service and the food is good as well. Typical South African menu and good. Everything from fish to meat and salads. The tables outside are beautiful and looking upon the golf course.

For the discerning palate who appreciate good cuisine. I would say a venue for special occasions or business dinners. Not for children (although ours were welcomed and treated like royalty). The Manager himself explained the menu in detail as if preparing the food himself! What was delivered, definitely did not disappoint. Well done. Highly recommended.

Situated right next to a golf course, this restaurant has excellent food to complement the pleasant views. The service is good also.

This is not the my review and won't be my last. It was my birthday, my dad's next day and I also planned to propose to a beautiful lady in my life. Blu Saffron rose to the occasion in a way only they can. This restaurant will remain my forever favourite. On a side note - this is formal restaurant... More
