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.

During the day a visit to our Chocolatier Factory is a must and you can also take a chocolate complete tour of the factory.

A beautiful restaurant in a lovely old house, excellent food and attentive, gracious and friendly service, but at a hideous price – by far the most expensive restaurant I have ever eaten in except for a Michelin three star in France. We paid over $300 for two for three courses with wine by the glass and we could have chosen... More

My husband loved the onsite cigar manufacturing. We girls loved the onsite chocolate factory!! Beautiful property. 270 year old hotel. You would never know the property was as large and lush.

The Graycliff by far is one of my favorite restaurants in the world. Hands down. The Graycliff is not for everyone. So, the mixed reviews from time to time indicate that there are those who just don't get it or what it's all about. That's why there are choices in life. The Graycliff is a state of mind. A lifestyle... More

GrayCliff is an all around enjoyable experience.. If you have visited Nassau numerous times and are looking for delicious cuisine, wonderful atmosphere, a tour through the wine cellar, watch the making of cigars, chocolate in the making (delish).. Fantastic service, we visited Nov. 14, 2014 and one of the owners was enjoying lunch at a nearby table.. That is always... More

Reminded me of a local restaurant here in St. John's Raymonds. It is an experience in and of itself. Visit the wine cellar it is incredible. A little pricy

Food is fine but the service is a bit over the top waiters have waiters waiting on them so if you ask the wrong one you have to wait till they check with the right one. Ambience however is charming and somewhat unique in an old plantation house style. Worth a visit for a special occasion , you will not... More

We had read so many great things about Graycliff that we decided to celebrate my husband's birthday by dining at the restaurant on our last night in the Bahamas. We were staying at The Cove at Atlantis, which meant a $20 cab ride to the restaurant. I made reservations ahead of time and was asked if we would like to... More
