The restaurant is small and has great windows looking out onto the harbor and the bridge. The service was delightful and the food delicious. Overall a very good experience. Oh and the prices are very reasonable for quality seafood. We will be going back!

Rating system needs a six for this place. Salmon must have just got off the boat. Grandson, burger judge extraordinary, declared the lamb one the best of his 30 year life. Saffron will be a standard stop on our annual trip.
