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.

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.

My husband and I enjoyed our first meal at Graycliff thirty-one years ago, and our children surprised us with our second dinner when we vacationed in Atlantis last week. A stretch limo came to pick up our party of thirteen, and I was stunned when it stopped at the front door of Graycliff. Not to mention embarrassed, because DH and... More

The humidor steakhouse was excellent quality and value. It was a brazilian bar-b-que place with excellent food. There was a good number of people but it wasn't too crowded. The meal comes with a free tour of the wine cellar just ask your waiter when you finish eating.

After a long day exploring the western side of the island, we were hungry and hot. Our local contact on the island had suggested we might like the chocolates at Greycliff. She called them worldclass. We enjoyed the chocolates, but it is the pizza we'll remember. With a little help from the parking attendant, we decided to make a quick... More

It's a little tight to get there as parking is busy but it's worth it just to get in and relax. Friday from 17:00 to 19:00 $20 for 3 beers and a pizza. Can't get better then that!!! There is a chocolate shop is also worth investigating. I don't have a soft tooth, but where else can you try bacon... More

We had dinner at Graycliff 2 nights ago. I was very happy to find such an elegant place in Nassau. Personnel is very pleasant. Unfortunately at Atlantis we were never informed of the restaurant policy of "no shorts" and "reservations preferred" but, despite of that, we were sat at a beautifully put table where we enjoyed a delicious dinner.
