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.
Service was amazing and attention to detail. Felt genuine and a accommodating keep up the great work will be back.
Absolutely loved the service! Delicious food. Would totally go here again!
We appreciated the relax atmosphere that allowed us to have a very leisurely lunch and good catch-up
We did need to wait a while to hear about the specials, have our order taken and for our drinks. Our waiter also forgot our bread order, however we were given a dish of biltong as an apology for the wait. The food was delicious! The atmosphere was fantastic, we had a delightful table near the fire and it was perfect. My only issues were with the number of times we had to wait too long for things.
Classy presentatiion of meal and first class service. All meals came to the table in good time- everyone had their meal at the same time. Great having dessert on the house for your birthday.
Food was excellent. Atmosphere a little quiet as not many their on a Friday lunch time.
Great food, great atmosphere and even better service.. We had an evening out with friends away from the kids and it wasn't regrettable. Thanks to the waiting and kitchen staff it was very enjoyable. The kitchen was very busy and yet we still had food and service that had no presence of a stressed kitchen.. We will be back!!
The food was delicious with just the right sized portions. A nice varied menu that catered to all. The one thing that stood out was the ability to cater for an egg allergy in the desert menu, a rarity. I liked the layout of the restaurant, no need to bump chairs with diners around you. the wait staff were attentive without being invasive. Highly recommended.
Thank you Nadine for the great review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your experience with us.
A great dining experience again. We had the best waitress, Mariah, who had the whole thing timed beautifully as we were dining with two small children. I didn’t have to ask for anything, she pre-empted everything. Love dining here for birthdays as the team sing and make a fuss! Harriet, my five year old, loved it. Food was great as well. A wonderful night had by all of us.
Thank you Sarah, you are always such a pleasure to host. Mariah will be so pleased with this great feedback. So pleased we could make it special for Harriet.
Stafford, our waiter was great!
Thank you Jo for the great review, totally agree with you regarding Stafford. We are so proud of him for being nominated as a finalist in the Manawatu Hospitality Awards as Barman of the Year.
Delicious food but service a bit slow
Thank you Jessica for your feedback, we are pleased that you enjoyed the food. We take feedback very seriously and so have looked into your comment regarding slow service. As a result there are a couple of points to note. Your party of 8 arrived 15 minutes late + ordered the flame grilled chicken dish, which your waitress told you would take at least 30-40 minutes to cook. Your wait time for your meal on a busy Saturday night was 45 minutes, which is very normal for a big group, ordering chicken on a busy Saturday night. Hope this helps to clarify your comment.
Love Little Savanna - great service and fantastic team working there. They even put out special napkins for our anniversary and made us feel even more special.
Thank you Fatima for the great review and for choosing us as your venue for your special celebration!
Fantastic as usual! They catered for my son with food allergies, and he loved his steak. We all enjoyed our generous meals that were superbly cooked.
Thank you Steve, we are so pleased with this review!

Great place great food
Fantastic, thank you Yvette!
Slick friendly service, food was delicious, atmosphere lovely with good choice of music the only thing I didn’t like was the television screen.
Thank you Douglas for your feedback, we are so pleased you enjoyed it. We don't have the screen down all the time, most like it, but some like you obviously don't.
Excellent service, loved the atmosphere
Fantastic, thank you so much!
Thanks once again for a successful work lunch. It was great for our large group to be able to pre-order so we could be in and out within the hour still. Wonderful service and yummy meals once again, thank you!
Thank you Remax again for choosing us to celebrate such a wonderful achievement!
This place is amazing, its about time Palmerston North brought in a refreshing dinning experience such as this. The food could not be faulted, portion sizes generous. And the service was exceptional. New favourite place to dine. Family friendly for those with kids. Played great music and the interior is amazing!!
Thank you so much Francis for the fantastic review. Makes all our hard work worthwhile!

We so enjoyed our first meal on Monday night 30/7 with incredible service by Mariah, that we drove 50 minutes from Whanganui to dine again on Saturday 4/8. Another fabulous dining experience with Mariah as our waitress. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals, and I know we will definitely be coming back and recommending highly to our friends. Thank you so much!
