On a recent trip in NZ we went 900 kms out of our way to go to Saffron Restaurant in Arrowtown and were very glad we made the effort. Our meals were delicious and beautifully presented, service and the restaurant itself were excellent. Great food, good wine, not too expensive - what more can you ask!

This was a night to remember. The service and food was spectacular and rivals many of the other meals we have had a other fine dining establishments.

Bluff Oysters, Crayfish, Whitebait, Lamb and Venison.........

The selection on the menu was great and catered for all tastes.

Desserts were pretty damn good as well.

I would definately go back.

We loved our meal! It was excellent. The venison with beets was one of my favorite meals of the trip. The beets were perfectly done and I wish I'd have had more. The wines we had were incredible. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in arrowtown in the evening!
