The name gives a clue to the food in this fine-dining restaurant on the mezzanine level of the grand Hotel de France. Saffrons sets out to combine Indian spicing, European flavours & local ingredients in dishes such as pan-seared Jersey mackerel with carom seeds & lemon dressing or quail breast biryani with lightly spiced quails’ legs. Warm chocolate & nut samosas round off meals on a sweet note. To sample the kitchen’s finest wares, opt for the degustation menu at £50 for five courses, or £70 including wine. Attractive lighting & flower displays give the dining room a welcoming feel.
