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.

Really expensive dinner, compared to London prices they are actually way higher which is strange. The service was good and the location and interior were pleasant. However the standard of food, though good, wasn't of such quality that it justified the really expensive prices. Would return again but only if the prices were lower.

$64 for a shot of scotch that retails $210-$250 for a bottle!?!?!? The mains were in the $50-$60 range. Trying to compete with Atlantis?

We were so excited about this meal and had heard so much about it. Their wine list is impressive. My husband smokes cigars, so he was thrilled when they rolled him a cigar and he smoked it in the cigar room. The restaurant is gorgeous and the people are very friendly, however, we weren't thrilled with the dinner. We were... More

I have frequented Graycliff on many, many occasions - for drinks, for lunch, for the wine tour, for dinner - and I have never had an experience as bad and embarrassing as the one I just had. The service was slow, slow, slow. It took more than 30 minutes for our appetizers to come, and they were SOUP. Our entrees... More

We didn’t eat at the restaurant but went inside the hotel for a tour on the way to the Rum distillery. I can only imagine how good the food would have been. The Hotel and Gardens were beautiful and the staff we talked to were very nice and friendly. This will definitely be in our plans for our next trip.
