This was my first visit to the Little Savanna, and my experience of dining there was delightful. I liked the professionalism and at the same time friendliness of staff. The preparation of food and service were amazing. The ambiance of the restaurant was marvelous. It was value for money and I would definitely go back there and also will recommend my friends and family to experience the dining in at the little Savanna. Keep up the good work guys.

Went last night for our wedding anniversary. The service was great. The guy told us the specials and asked if we were there for a special occasion. He then brought over some flowers to put on the table to make it a little special! Thought that was really cute haha. Food was amazing! the best seafood chowder i have ever had. fulls you up too which ment i couldnt then eat my main but sooo worth it. Doggy bagged that to take home. Also a really nice touch was bringing over a little shot glass of cocktail that was left over. Might not be much but things like that do go a long way! was a great dinner out for me and my husband. Thanks heaps Little savana team! looking forward to getting back there soon

We had a lovely evening and the meal was delicious. Our waitress was very friendly and knew the menu very well. The only negative was the wait - we waited nearly 45mins for our meals to arrive. It was acknowledged, and we were given a plate of dried meat to nibble on. It was a busy Friday night, and maybe that wait is not usual. Would still go back though.

We had a wonderful dinner, the steak was amazing and cooked exactly as we has asked. We had the apple cigar for dessert, it was only lukewarm at best, but was still tasty. The staff were amazing, as it was a busy night, but you still got taken care of in a quick and friendly manner.

We had very good feedback from our out of town business guests regarding the food, service and overall experience. The table service was prompt, very friendly and unobtrusive while still seeing to everyone's needs. A great experience overall that I will be recommending to others.
