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.

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.

Gary was the host. He was professional and humorous. Loved continental experience of drinks and ordering meal in the lounge. Very extensive wine and spirits selection. My wife said it was the best meal she has ever had and we have been to many fine restaurants. Try it before you secumb to the hype of paradise island marketing.

Their cigars are very good quality and come in different gradations depending on the "experience" of the smoker. Service can be spotty despite the number of people. Aloof isn't the... More

I was blown away by the service, food, the ambiance. Everything was different and a very great experience. It has a lot of culture behind it. Great place to visit.

A very good place to go , the food is superb and there is a remarkable wine cellar to choose from . Host Enrico Garzaroli is a real character , it is part of the Graycliff Hotel / Heritage Village development so if you like history then it is even more interesting as you can walk around this famous house...

I love the wine list and the variety on it. We had a tour of wine cellar before so it was great ending of the tour. Food was good but not excellent. Service was fantastic. Will be back soon but just for a nice glass of wine.
