About Little Savanna

Open from 11.00am to close everyday except Monday when open from 5.00pm. Full menu offered all day and lunch menu to 5pm. Build your own platters available up to 6pm daily.

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).

Due to the style of our menu and our limited kitchen space + the fact that it is our duty to give all our guests a quality dining experience we have limited the number of large bookings to 14 people on a Friday and Saturday night. 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.

Middle of steak was rare when asked for medium, and i wasn’t able to eat it which was upsetting as it was delicious. Waitress came once meal was finished and she said she would take the remains of my meal to kitchen and remind them to cook it to medium next time but I still missed out on part of my expensive dinner. It was our wedding anniversary and we wanted a drink together but my drink took 25mins to make so my husbands beer was long gone by the time my drink arrived.

We brought our twin daughters in for dinner on their birthday - our waiter went above and beyond to make them feel special and then the whole team sang them happy birthday which was fab. The girls loved it and want to come again sometime!

We had my daughter’s birthday lunch in Saturday. We had so much fun over our long lunch. Staff were exceptional even bringing out the cake and all singing happy birthday. Everyone loved their meal choice, and great selection of drinks to match - cool cocktails that can be shared . Definitely looking forward to coming back. The staff and customer service were the highlight . Congratulations

We came for an anniversary dinner after having Little Savanna recommended to us by several people. My only disappointment was that they didn't have ostrich available but our server gave us an indication of when that will be back on the menu so we know when to book again (and we definitely will). All of the food was beautiful and wait times were short even though the restaurant was very busy. We were so impressed, thank you for a wonderful evening!

We enjoyed a fabulous evening at Little Savanna. Great meals and lovely atmosphere, but most of all we were impressed by the friendly and attentive way in which the front of house team looked after us, particularly on a busy Saturday night.
