About Little Savanna

If we do not have availability in the restaurant for the date and time that you have selected, please call Little Savanna directly for last minute availability. There may be availability at the bar leaners or the courtyard (weather dependant).

This allows us to prepare consistent high quality dishes for all our guests. We welcome bookings of over 14 people from Sundays to Thursdays, which can be made directly with Little Savanna by phone or email.

Went for lunch to celebrate our 50th Wedding anniversary. More than happy with all aspects of Little Savannah, food was delicious and service excellent. Delighted to be told the dessert was on the house for our anniversary. Highly recommended, will return.

Food top quality but lacked seasoning for me. Himilayian pinksalt could be introduced to enhance your flavours. Our waiter, Stafford, excellent, personable & an asset to our dining experience. We did mention that our veg could have been hotter with out main meal. Your restroom was lovely & clean. Your individual towels were a lovely idea. We felt the need for TVs lowered the ambiance. Overall it was a lovely evening to celebrate our birthdays. Thank you

Thank you Raewyn for the constructive feedback. Stafford is a wonderful waiter and barman, an asset to Little Savanna. We raised the issue of the warm vegies to the chefs on the night who will certainly be trying their best to avoid this happening. Will also pass on your seasoning comment. The TV's being on is a tricky one, as a number of our guests have commented on how much they enjoy them. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your evening with us.

Found the restaurant very average, more of a "no children" zone type of restaurant due to feeling very much a hindrance with our two year old with us and was made very clear by the team. Service was very poor. Would not be returning.

Restaurant Response

Thank you Cathie for your feedback. We do apologise for your negative experience with us. We certainly do not regard children as a hindrance, in fact quite the opposite, so am very surprised with this review. For some reason the day you came we had an absolute rush of unexpected guests. Another lesson in a our young business for us to learn, is that the day before mothers day will also be busy and so we will staff accordingly.

Amazing, all guests thoroughly enjoyed the food, beverages, service and ambience. There was a great selection of food available, and the flavours amazing, from the calamari entree, to the chargrilled steaks with basting, then to the desserts, the Malva pudding, semifreddo and cheeseboard were favourites. A great selection of drinks to choose from, better than the vast majority of restaurants in town in terms of variety and value for money. Then the service, an absolute delight to have Michael serve us, who apparently has only been employed for 4 weeks. Charisma you cannot teach. Highly recommend to all.

Our party of 9 were all highly impressed with the food & service we received. Our friendly waiter was on the ball memorizing our orders and taking care of beverages throughout the meal. The breads for the table were catered to the number of patrons and not just to a standard number/size. And the food was delicious. Well done on a great dining experience!
