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.

We went here on the last night of our stay in the Bahamas. Some really fine food and one of the most extensive wine collections in the world. However, service patchy at times and when our son ordered a steak with a side order of mushrooms no one told him that he needed some fries too! The 18... read more

We have had so many memorable visits to Graycliffs (starting in 1990). Tonight was also memorable but for all the wrong reasons. Poor service...unfriendly...food-average at best. We asked to see a certain sommelier but that didn't happen.When 4 of us ordered the soufflé & then 2 more decided they also wanted them, it was obvious it was an inconvenience. As... More

This was such a great place! We felt like we were living back in the old days. The furniture and decor was right out of your grandmother's home. Our husbands smoked cigars and the us women ordered fancy drinks. We listened to the wonderful piano player and got a tour of the amazing wine cellar in the basement. A must... More

We walked down the beach from the Atlantis to this restaurant. We had a seat outside with an ocean breeze it was perfect! I can't say I remember anything spectacular about the food I just remember this view and seating was fantastic!

We ate here for a business event, so we didn't order from the menu, but what we were served was delicious. We had the largest shrimp I've ever seen. This restaurant is not on the ocean, but if you like old world charm, this might be a good choice.

We celebrated our friend, Ken Stevens, 60th birthday there. It is a five star restaurant, rated in the best in the islands. The food was amazing. The ambience incredible - it was originally the mansion of a Nassau pirate captain. They have literally a $20 million dollar wine cellar which you can tour by asking. Dinner was delicious and unhurried... More

My family with 2 young kids went to the lunch price fixe for $30/person for a 3course meal. The food was good but the waiters were awful. I had needed ketchup for my kids and you would've thought I was asking for the moon. They looked down their noses at me and said they had to check. I understand that... More
