We ate here while staying at the hotel (the hotel is quite far from anything else, so unless you feel like a long drive you will end up eating at the hotel restaurants). The food is very good, the chef is from Thailand. It is probably the most expensive restaurant in acapulco (makes sense being in the most expensive hotel)... More

Saffron Thai Restaurant is nestled amongst beautiful serene villas at The Banyan Tree and overlooks the Pacific ocean. We dined at sunset, were the only ones there and were very well looked after by our waiter. The menu looked like there was a comprehensive selection and we chose a sharing starter plate for two. Satay sticks were very small, the... More

It's a great experience!! The service is superb and the food is unbeatable. The dishes have great presentation and better taste! Try some of the Currys! The chef is Thai therefore the food is authentic. Ask for Juan to be your server great sense of humor yet great service.

Saffron is located at the stylish Banyan Tree Hotel in the Diamante area. The place is very nice with a fantastic view over the water. Service is impeccable and food is very good too. Beware of a lot of mosquitos in the evening when eating outside which is much nicer, this place should have done some fumigation for this problem.

We had dinner at Saffron for my birthday after hearing from other guests how wonderful everything was and it certainly lived up to the hype. I ordered the Sea Bass and it literally melted in my mouth, the waiter also brought out a decorative desert plate in honor of my birthday and the chief came out to greet the diners.... More

Had dinner last week at the Saffron in the Banyan Tree Hotel Acapulco. The views are incredible since you are right on the sea at the end of a small peninsula. The hotel is amazing and the food at this place is really a treat. With clear Thai influence, it is delicious but quite spicy Well worth the visit.

We booked through the hotel and got a prime outdoor table in time for sunset and cocktail aperitifs but then the rain came. We were taken indoors, still with great views as a humungous storm broke over the bay. The food is really good; compared to Thai food in the UK it was expensive here as was the wine. That... More

I believe people are rating this restaurant badly because it's expensive and the 15% fee which I am actually very happy to have been aware of. Im still a little unsure where exactly it goes but I think the 5% going to the waiter sounds about right so I tipped based on that. The view is gorgeous, we went right... More
