Restaurant Safran - what’s in a name?
After dinner, retire to the Chill Bar for a night cap – perhaps an Italian liqueur or a brandy. And as you sip your drink, reflect on the name of Restaurant Safran. It recalls the precious spice that came from the east in ancient times – golden saffron. It’s a fitting name, since every new week is a voyage of culinary discovery in this very special restaurant. We warmly invite you to join the caravan.
