About Safran

Inspired by Turkey’s rich culinary history Safran restaurant on Ocean View Road delivers authentic recipes with contemporary twists to Ettalong Beach diners. From dishes cooked in Ottoman Palace kitchens to street food, Safran covers all tastes and palates, enjoyed in stylish surrounds of a green tiled bar, recycled timber flooring, arched windows and Middle Eastern-style lights. Perhaps opt for the five-course degustation and paired wines, or dine à la carte with starters like pan-fried scallops, caramelised celeriac purée, Avruga caviar and lemon tahini. Charcoal-grilled eye fillet, mulberry glazed beef cheek, battered mushrooms, caramelised onion, tahini and currants entice for the main affair, finishing with pistachio baklava, cherry sorbet, goats’ milk ice cream and rose meringue.

Great restaurant, highly recommend for dinner


Awesome food and great setting. Great fine dining experience. Highly recommended.


We had outstanding service from start to finish and we all tried something different from the menu, we couldn't fault any of the dishes, they were all exquisite. A real fine dining experience. I can't wait to go back!
