Expect the best food and wine beyond compare. The waitrons treated us like students though, and one abandoned midway through. To be honest I barely noticed as my group were having so phenomenal a time.

Had a really pleasant evening at Delaire, where the food is certainly as pretty as the surroundings. The tasting menu highlighted seasonal ingredients in a contemporary way, with winning combinations across each course. Service was also spectacular, with a really attentive team clearly on top of their game. Certainly deserved of recent accolades. Only opportunity for improvement was the wine... More

We love this place, got engaged at the lodge 2 years ago. Food and service excellent as always. Felt wine has become a bit over the top though R320 a bottle or Colmant nearly triple that of the farm. Otherwise no complaints

Having eaten in a number of Michelin star restaurants I would highly recommend the Graff to anyone. The service was excellent, beautifully presented food of the highest quality. The restaurant has a warm relaxed atmosphere and the staff were unpretentious and charming. We did not have the taster menus but the specials of the night & could not fault it.... More

We were blown away by the fabulous formal gardens and magnificent sratues and sculptures on the approach to the wine tasting room. Our Four Wines each paired with a gourmet delight was fantastic value at only R150 each. The artwork is amazing everywhere you look and atmosphere very welcoming amidst the eclectic African European opulence. A Beautiful Experience thank you.

Was here with my wife. After 3 weeks touring between Thailand, Australia and SA, it was definitely the best restaurant we did. Food is stunning, service is great, people are so friendly and the atmosphere is just amazing. Deserves a 10/10 ... Congrats

We stopped for lunch on a recommendation and ended up having one of the best meals ever in the Indochine restaurant. Great food, excellent wine, magnificent surroundings, friendly staff. Goes on to my "must do" list for any friends visiting Cape Town.

All around this was a very memorable visit. From the great views, to the wonderful wines, to very pleasant and attentive staff. We did wine tasting which was the best wine tasting experience we have had (in and out of South Africa) before having lunch. Lunch was another great experience and hope to come back some day to stay for... More
