But staff is friendly... Overpriced and mainly concentrat for continental food..... That y it is never filled with Indian customer.....

Ate here twice on a 2 day trip to fort Cochin. It's top notch quality. They grow their own food ingredients which are organic. The freshness of the ingredients was incredible. Green peppers and red peppers full of flavour. Beets juicy and delicious. I had 3 course meals each day, only because the food is off the charts delicious. The... More

My wife and I are quite restricted in what we can eat. Sibi, who attended to us, was the perfect host. He listened patiently to our needs, made carefully selected suggestions and soon we had a solution that became a wonderful meal! The pakoras were the best I've ever eaten. The South India curries were a delight. All freshly cooked.... More

I've now eaten 3 breakfasts, 1 lunch and 2 dinners at Saffron and have found the food to be fresh and delicious every time. The restaurant uses organic food and filters their own water as it is environmentally conscious. Everything is cooked fresh to order so it is not a quick eat place but the food is more than worth...

We had lunch while staying at the Spice Fort hotel and were impressed by the food. Very good north Indian cuisine and great seafood as well! Breakfast the next morning, though, was likely the best we have had in India! We have stayed in many 5 and 4 star hotels on out trip but their restaurants could not compete with... More

We have eaten at this restaurant twice and are wondering if we can squeeze in another visit. The International Seafood cuisine was first class and the desserts superb. The best meal we have eaten this trip and we have eaten many good meals. I can thoroughly recommend the seafood soup, pasta and panna cotta with hibiscus sauce. We have eaten... More
