Description: Graycliff Restaurant's cuisine epitomizes elegance in the finest...
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. 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. Graycliff has also a cigar factory on property, a cigar roller at night shows his art in the parlor. During the day a visit to our Chocolatier Factory is a must and you can also take a chocolate complete tour of the factory.

My husband and I had lunch at Graycliff while visiting Nassau, we had a wonderful experience that we will remember for a long time. Karen was such a gracious hostess and the staff were so kind and accommodating. I had a three course lunch consisting of salad, entree and dessert. The entree was an Angus beef stew and the beef...

The place looks elegant, at least on the surface. But there's not much to recommend it beyond the facade. The service is perfunctory, not friendly. The food is uninspired and bland. The prices are way too high (and that's coming from someone who lives in Manhattan), with everything a la carte, and an extra charge for sharing. When we were... More

I was invited to Graycliff Restaurant with my husband and two other couples. The restaurant is located in the heart of Nassau in a very old section of the city. The house, itself, is a historic building that has been beautifully converted with class to one of the finest restaurants and humidors in Nassau. Graycliff has many aspects aside from... More

We had a group dinner at the Graycliff. The dinner was really spectacular. We had conch chowder with a pepper sherry, grouper, and salad. The staff kept your wine glass filled. It is located in an old colonial style house. Very elegant. They had live entertainment. Tanya played popular songs on the baby grand and sang giving them a smooth... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Graycliff last night. We're visiting from out of town and this was our first time to Graycliff; we were very pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is in a restored and charming one-of-a-kind building which felt a little like a New Orleans style house. The service was excellent-- the staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Graycliff is a notch above 5 star cuisine. Nassau without dinning here is like visiting Orlando and skipping Disney World. Expert service, fine dinning in a see and be seen mansion or your party can dine in the wine cellar deep among 250,000 bottles of nearly every vintage and price. Just do it!!
