“Superb selection of food”
Review of Saffron

Saffron

Restaurant details
Dining options: Late Night, Breakfast, Reservations
Description: The critically acclaimed Saffron Restaurant at Amorita Resort is inspired by the seasons and specialties in Bohol. The all-day menu, developed by Chef Raphael Ongchiong, emphasizes freshness, clarity of ingredients, and local availability. Saffron offers a thoughtful reinterpretation of Boholano heritage cuisine, alongside a wide range of Continental and Asian food favorites. The Chef's culinary artistry is met with an excellent selection of wines, signature cocktails, and gourmet beverages. A 162-seat dining venue, Saffron is casual and welcoming, with a decor to match. Sea-inspired accent lighting, all-weather woven furniture, and hand-carved driftwood create a dramatic poolside ambiance that serves to elevate guests' dining experience.

One of the best restaurants I've ever tried. Saffron offers a wide selection of food choices. We really enjoyed the buffet breakfast because it has everything from bread, salad, to desserts. The staff were also really nice and commendable. You can also request for coffee (they have espresso, latte, iced coffee, etc!!). We also had our dinner here and my personal favorite is their adobo. Highly recommend trying their dinner buffet every fri and sat because everything just looks so appetizing.

The Saffron Restaurant offers a wide variety of food selection to make sure it satisfies the different preferences of its guests. We tried their food during dinner and all I can say is that everything was good. My personal favorite would be the churros, which was cooked perfectly. And for the breakfast buffet, everyone will surely enjoy the food they prepared, from the fruits, to the breads and pancakes, bacon, viands and more. You can also request for coffee or tea which is also great. The champorado has a really rich taste which also makes it my favorite during the buffet. To add to that the service was exceptional, all the staff are attentive and are more than willing to serve us. Kudos to the management and the dining staff for their great service.

Have dined twice at the Saffron Restaurant and both times have been impressed by the food and service. Children squeeling from the pool area distracted slightly from the ambience but over all the outdoor setting was fabulous.

My husband and I stayed overnight at Amorita Resort in June. The restaurant offered a wide variety of breakfast buffet, ranges from local delicacies to Danish pastries! We had a nice fill and enjoyed our breakfast! I will definitely comeback in this hotel next time I get home.
A stunning view as well as we enjoyed our breakfast !
