We had a wonderful dinner with the Graaff friends at the restaurant. The beautiful views of Table Mountain were as good as the food. Service was at a leisurely pace and efficient. The wines served with the food are good. We would make a return visit to enjoy and further enhance the experience... definitely a more than once experience!!

The view cannot be beat. The service good . Food tasty and well presented. The room nice and warm on a cold day. Starters are on the pricy side,and any veg with main is an extra charge. and to be charged a facet donation to use the toilet that is a first for me. After one has paid 40.00 for... More

Pricey but magnificent, wine, food and setting. The venue is worth a visit - the gardens are spectacular. The wines are also superb. Expect to pay for all the beauty - its five star prices along with 5 star food and setting.

This is the perfect summer lunch venue but don't be in a hurry because the view is awesome and the food is so good that you need to savour it and enjoy your surroundings. Attentive service, excellent variety of food where even the simplest dishes are a taste sensation ... quite pricey but worth the treat.

We were lucky that Delaire Graff was able to seat us without a reservation and we were thoroughly impressed with the entire experience. The service was fantastic: very friendly, knowledgable and attentive. The food and wine were also outstanding. We had entrees, mains and deserts and all were delicious. The restaurant is set within the estate and has lovely views... More

We had dinner at Delaire Graff with friends last month. We opted for the tasting menu. From the sommellier's recommendations (he was extremely knowledgeable and recommended surprisingly well priced wines) to the waiting staff - service was excellent. And the food...Oh the food. A gastronomical explosion in my mouth! Not cheap but surprisingly not that expensive. You have to eat... More

We have visited on more than one occasion & love this restaurant. The staff are attentive & the views on a sunny day are phenomenal. Well worth a visit but do not expect a cheap meal.

Situated on the Delaire Graff Estate, you encounter real fine dining with exquisite menu choices. Artful and stylish interior, with well-trained staff- and sommelier, this restaurant definitely complements the Relaix-and –Chateaux status of the Delaire Graff estate – nothing more needs to be said!
