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.

Had dinner at the pizza restaurant and it was delicious! There is a formal restaurant too that has a wide range of foods and the prices to go with it. The grounds are very well maintained and it has a really nice vibe. It's a throwback to the way it was when the British were in charge.

Even if you don't have time to eat at the Graycliff, the tour is definitely a must do. The wine cellars were phenomenal and it is a great sight to see. Food was very good but some was an acquired taste/ for specialized taste buds. Not child friendly (in case you were wondering).

Graycliff is amazing. It has so much character and charm I didn't want to leave. Our dinner was delicious and our wine was to die for. If you're lucky, they will give you a tour of their famous wine cellar - the 3rd largest in the world. Check out their pool as well. It's beautiful!

My wife and I took a night out of our Sandals-ensconced vacation to visit Graycliff. I sold her on the prestigious wine list, but secretly wanted to check out the scotch and cigars. We ended up having one of the best, and most expensive, but worth it, meals of our lives. You start out in the lounge area, which is... More
