The restaurant is beautiful with magnificent original artwork adorning the walls and a huge fire at the entrance. Our service was excellent - our glasses were always full, yet never noticed them being topped up. The food was beautifully plated with interesting combinations, and the servings were generous for fine dining, especially after the lovely bread and truffle butter, and... More

The Delaire Graff is one of the best places for lunch in the Stellenbosch area. The setting is beautiful - you sit on a nice terrace with magnificent views of the surrounding vineyards and mountains. A great place to enjoy the delicious food and to relax. We had three courses, started with tuna sashimi and the chicken liver paté, which... More

I had the pleasure of dining at Delaire Graff Estate on a recent trip to Stellenbosch. Speaking as someone who has wine and dined herself across the globe, saying that this was the best meal I have ever eaten is no easy feat, but it truly was. The presentation was like art and the flavors strong, interesting and surprising. Not... More

we had an absolute superb experience at the Graff restaurant. The ambience and views were second to none, the food amazing, wines to match and the service as the best we have had during a two week visit around South Africa. We will be back for more

Two waiters and a sommelier made our experience fantastic. The choice of wines by the glass was wide and they helped us with the pairings. The mushroom gnocchi was soft and smothers in mushrooms and spinach. We had some Delaire bubbles to start and it set the mood perfectly. the restaurant is decorated boldly and we felt like rock stars... More

I must say, Delaire Graff exceeded my expectations. We had dinner (food and wine pairing) and not only was the food delicious, but the service was incredible, I mean genuinely incredible! The wine pairing complimented the food perfectly and although this is probably one of the most expensive dinners we've had, it certainly was worth it!

OK, so here we go. I booked a table for 6 some months back at their Indochine restaurant for the 6 April and somehow (my fault) got the dates muddled and arrived two days early! I had guests from Denmark and although the staff attempted to make an alternative reservation for us across the road at Tokara, every option was... More

The view is stunning from the restaurant terrace at lunch time. The food is not only presented in a wonderful way - it tastes divine. This is Michelin level food. The only niggle is that it is very busy, slightly too commercial and full of rather noisy tourists when we went for lunch. That takes away a bit of the... More
