Fine food is the way to go

Our company decided to have our year end dinner at Grazia. The atmosphere is that of a warm hearted place with a great view of the ocean on their doorstep. If you are looking for quality food and good wine be sure to try Grazia's. Sure you will have to pay for good quality but it is worth it... read more

Cannot fault this really special restaurant, excellent menu with a wide variety of meal choices. Love that fact that it overlooked the ocean. Waitrons are very attentive.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with a night out at Crazia restaurant. Brilliant meal. Lovely wine and good service. This must surely be East London's finest restaurant. Highly recommended.

This restaurant was recommended when my husband came on business. We have just spent the week here and the first night he insisted I would like it, so we went for dinner without a booking. So glad they had a table for us. Jabu served us and the evening reminded me of when we went to silver service restaurants when... More

This is truly a classy restaurant. The service was very attentive. The atmosphere and decor just right. The food was really good and (for the exchange rate to the pound) excellent value!

Had lunch here. Great views and good staff. We all had a good laugh over the thick book like menu, most of which seemed to be adverts. Food quantities large and all round OK quality. My beef smelled rotten and when I queried the waiter asked "is it off". It was. Replaced without question but left a bad taste, figuratively... More

We welcome all constructive criticism, unfortunately I do not think that your comment is a reflection of our establishment. Our menu is currently the trend all over Europe and Cape Town, it takes months to develop, we have 159 wines listed, advertising the actual wine farms makes it so much more interesting, I only have good feed back regarding the...

Grazia is never disappointing. We love a long lazy lunch on the deck with a cold glass of Pierre Jourdan bubbles or lengthy dinners. their food is always out of this world. The only critique I have is that the menu is soooo big - i think a smaller menu would give you more of the fine dining feel, but... More
