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. Wines, Cognacs, Armagnacs and Ports Graycliff's Wine Cellar is world renowned and the wine list has won the prestigious Wine Spectator Grand Award since 1988. The wine cellar has an inventory of over 250,000 bottles from over 400 vintners in 15 countries. The cellar is a wine connoisseur's dream, the inventory ranges from such wines as an 1865 Château Lafite, to the oldest and one of the most expensive bottles in the world, a 1727 Rudesheimer Apostelwein from Bremer Ratsfeller in the "Rheinghau" Region, priced at US$200,000, to today's most popular vintages. Ask the sommelier for a tour of the wine cellar. In addition to the considerable wine inventory, Graycliff also boasts one of the largest selections of Cognacs, Armagnacs , Ports, Macallan' s and vintage malt whiskys. we have a cognateque with a great number of museum pieces bottles. Graycliff main house was built in 1740. The breathtaking hand painted pool is the first one in the Bahamas and the ruins of the oldest church can be seen just outside our kitchens.

Not only is it a beautiful old mansion,wonderful decor, great garden....but the food is wonderful as well. Get there half an hour early so you can have a cocktail in the living room before dinner. If you're cabbing... More

What an adventure! We never knew this jewel existed - gorgeous grounds with pools, statues and palm shaded walks. We sampled Conch Chowder in one of the many dining rooms. I can't wait to visit again.

We enjoyed a lovely meal which started with a cocktail in the living room where a piano player really added to the atmosphere in this beautiful old home. A waiter brought a plate of crudite which I thought was an odd selection and certainly not 5 star ... a few sliced carrot rounds, some olives and maybe a few sticks... More
