Food was less than acceptable. Price was too much for the quality. The place needs a serious facelift.

Azafran is a gem of a restaurant in an less than ideal location. Although the neighborhood along this stretch of South Pacific Coast Highway is on the depressed side, this charming reaturant clearly attracts a loyal and authentic clientele. The venue is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful for those not familiar with cuban cuisine. Our large party was able to try the majority of their specialty dishes and none were disappointing. Their pork dishes, in particular, were memorable. Although traditional cuban cuisine is basic in ingredients, Azafran does each very well - the rice is well cooked and fragrant, the beans were tasty and the plantains were difficult not to eat in one sitting. While we don't often have a reason to go to this neighborhood of Oceanside, having discovered Azafran, we do now.

Stopped by and had appetizers and drinks. The interior is drab and dreary and definitely in need of sprucing up. The food was just ok, as was the service. Don't think I'll be going back.

There seemed to be only one waiter, but he managed everything without being rushed and without losing his friendly smile. I had ropas viejos for the first time in many years and loved it.
