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.

Simply the Best

Are you looking for a delicious meal? Are you looking for a fine bottle of wine to pair with it? Are you looking for five-star service? Look to Graycliff! Sure it is expensive. But it is the best on the island. Enjoy it!

If you love chocolate this is the place to be. Great combinations you can't get anywhere else. I loved it and I'm actually not even a big fan of chocolate.

Beautiful property and amazing history to the house. The food was okay but not hot and very expensive. The sides are all extra and for 7 of us the bill was over 1600 with only two bottles of 80 dollar wine. The truffle pasta purses were amazing. I think I would go here for dessert and a drink just to... More

We had been to Nassau before and seen the island, done the water and were looking for something different to do while in port. This was a fun experience and time well spent. The "tour guide" Coco was wonderful, full of energy, lots of smiles and made the experience a delight. Some of the other employees could take lessons from... More

Got to see the patio of this restaurant and would definitely visit with a significant other. Has one of the best wine cellars (in the world I think they said!) which it has won many awards for. Has a quaint southern US feel to it.

I've been to many 5 star restaurants and this ranks right up there as one of my favorite expreiences I can remember. A fantastic wine selection, maybe the best and most attentive service I've ever had, and fantastic ambience. The grounds of the hotel/restuarant is gorgeous and make sure to get a cigar rolled. I had the seafood platter which... More

I recently visited Graycliff for both dinner and a wine luncheon. For this review, there isn't enough room to describe the tremendous, delicious dinner and 5 star service, but what I would like to concentrate on is the total experience of Graycliff and how wonderful the wine luncheon is.

Over the years, we have had many wonderful experiences at Graycliff. Saturday, January 31 with my wife, daughter and her friend. Three of us ordered the 8 course tasting menu. At the beginning of the meal, the pacing was so fast we couldn't finish a course before being served another. When I asked them to slow the pace down it... More
