Graycliff Restaurant's cuisine epitomizes elegance in the finest continental and Bahamian tradition with a menu that is both tasteful and distinctive.The secret recipes at Graycliff have set its reputation in the hallmark of the rich and famous. Creative culinary innovation has resulted in a variety of sumptuous dishes that is distinctly its own. Bahamian dishes have been creatively transformed into sophistication and refinement with the end result being an international reputation for Bahamian cuisine. Your evening at the restaurant begins as you sink into the depths of a sofa in the parlor with its sophisticated high ceilings and tranquil feeling. Within moments a hostess will have you peruse the menu, while one of the bar waiters tends to your favorite cocktail. Having placed your dinner order, when your appetizers are ready, you are then escorted to your table to enjoy your meal.The restaurant has five air-conditioned dining rooms. Each room has a special allusion to the era when Graycliff was a private home from the Library to the Gallery, where the family would retire after dinner to play cards.Following dinner you are invited to once again relax and enjoy the rest of your evening with an after-dinner cognac or cigar. live grand piano music every night.

I want to begin with, if you are trying to do the Bahamas on a budget or you pay very close attention to prices you will not enjoy your experience here. If you want to lose track of time and enjoy 300 years of history, Graycliff is an absolute must!!!!! We enjoyed the wine luncheon, which is a tour as... More

This is a beautiful property with historic architecture and a welcoming atmosphere. There's a lot to do on-site, with the cigar factory, chocolate factory, and wine cellar to tour as well as the Heritage Museum right across the street. The food served for lunch here was yummy and it was a nice change from the mega-resort, Atlantis.

My husband and I had the worst time at greycliff. The food was terrible infact the whole main course was barely edible. Also they kept on giving me things that had nuts in when I specifically said I was highly allergic to nut. We will never go back.

We had a party of 10 business associates for dinner, fantastic food prepared with care, good not outstanding service, this restaurant is great for entertaining clients like we did, since our bill came to over $3000.00 US dollars

We had a beautiful romantic dinner in what is a beautiful old colonial building in Nasasu. It's not cheap but you will soon learn that eating out in Nassau is not cheap where ever you go. Our food was great and the service first class and if they have time, ask if you can tour the amazing wine cellar.

This restaurant was recommended by someone who'd been there 20 years ago - now that's saying something! We were there on a Monday night (June 1, '15) and seated at our table upon arrival. The place was about empty. We were offered the cliche Champagne cocktail which was very nice (really just a Kir Royale) but I wish I'd ordered... More
