I had the gazpacho soup(R115.00) and duck leg terrine(R126.00).The gazpacho... More

Our first visit to this restaurant after hearing mixed reports that it was expensive and not worth it, but we decided to give it a try & make up our own minds. Yes, it was expensive by SA standards - R900 per couple (incl tip) for a starter, main & one bottle of wine but my word was it worth... More

You just don't believe it. The lay out, the views, the gardens, the art, the sculptures and last but not least the terrific food and wine on the beautiful outside terrace. What an experience! This estate is a must visit!

My husband and I booked lunch here for the final meal of our holiday. We expected to leave South Africa on a high, blown away by the experience at Delaire Graff (based on recent TripAdvisor reviews). We were very disappointed to find that the outside terrace (with the gorgeous views) was closed even tho the weather (which admittedly had been... More

If you are in Stellenbosch I highly recommend this restaurant. Meals are served at night until 9:15 and we got there at 9:14...the service was amazing and made our dinner enjoyable, from the receptionist, to the waiters to the knowledgeable sommelier. The place is magnificent, very chic and as in most places in Stellenbosch has it's own winery. We had... More

We stopped at the Delaire Graff Restaurant for lunch during a Winelands Tour. It seemed a little pricier than the other restaurants we had visited but the bill ended up about the same as a quick pub lunch at home in Canada. The food was very good and the service was great. We sat on the balcony on a beautiful... More
