Located in the 5 star Amorita Hotel, Saffron offers a cozy, air-conditioned setting serving up Spanish Tapas fare. Had 2 type of croquettes, paella valenciana, gambas, meal balls, pork side tapas... on the whole, feedback on the cuisine was good... Not so much traditional Spanish Tapas though in its own style, tasty. Service was warm and engaging.

We went fancy on our last night. The restaurant has good prices even though it is attached to such a fancy resort. Great view at sunset. You can take the staircase at the end of the beach up, but they will probably send an employee with you to make sure you find your way to the restaurant.

Tried to dine once in our stay at Henann Bohol. But not for the tight budget diners. This is a little bit on the high end.

We had dinner as a family here. The meals were not as tasty as we hoped for. The waitress was a bit rushed and food was delayed. The price is expensive for what you get. There are other restaurants next door on Along beach.

By all means, go for that slab of White Marlin. You may skip that Sinigang with Pork Crackling once or twice, but never miss that White Marlin. Breakfast spread is also awesome. Even that Afternoon Tea. Heck, food is awesome! Never had a bad plate.

Breakfast is serve here and usually buffet at night. Great service and good food. Good place to hang around if you're not swimming. But it is open so could also be hot

The view from the tables is amazing. The food was great too. Me and my gf had raw fish (tuna and Marlyn) and it was perfect. Great service as well, probably one of the best restaurants we ate during our month stay in the Philippines.

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.
