Very nice setting, very good food and professional staff. This restaurant is setup for business meetings. The ambiance is upmarket, clean and well trained staff. They most definitely do not welcome kids.

Great venue with wonderful decor and views, backed up with a very fine menu. Service is a bit below par for the caliber expected of this Pretoria institution.

Blu Saffron is one of a few Pretoria restaurants that can be classified as old time favourites. The menu with added special dishes offers a fantastic variety that will satisfy everyone at the table. There will be something special attracting your attention. The wine list is comprehensive offering a wide variety of excellent wines at very reasonable prices.
