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.

My friends and I stayed in Amorita and Saffron was just basically where we ate everyday. The food was really good, their Friday Steak Out Buffet was a haven for meat lovers and their Saturday Gill Buffet are those for people who love good grilled seafood.

Everything is very affordable and it's unbelievable how good the food is for the price!

I had dinner and breakfast at Saffron during my stay in Amorita and boy, the food choices surprised me. It is actually simple and more local like the baked oysters, crispy shrimps, and some beef steak. I had the best desserts ever and the relaxing ocean breeze was a plus point.

The warm and accommodating service of the staff made my dining experience one of a kind. They may not have a lot of fusion dishes but focused more on the quality and freshness of the ingredients.

We had lunch here. As I've read in the reviews, I ordered the White Marlin, and I had the Turon with Ice cream for dessert. The White Marlin was really, really good. Great view. We had to wait 25 minutes for our desserts, though.

Good service but food was mediocre. Steak was by far not even in the top 5 to 10 I have had in Alona, but the price was much more. Good service, but overall I was a bit disappointed as it was not a cheap meal. Again, good service and salad was pretty good, steak was disappointing.

The poolside ambiance makes the food of Saffron taste a million times better! What make me want to come back even just for a meal are the BBQ Chicken Pizza and the classic cheeseburger.
The pizza, oval-shaped and brick oven baked, has cheese, barbecue chicken slices, and generous toppings of Caesar salad. I asked for pepper flakes just to add a little more spice. The burger is served open face with a huge amount of fries. The ketchup comes in a cute heart-shaped container - nice touch since the resort's name is Amorita. Whether by the pool or for room service, Saffron will throw a party in your mouth.
