We have eaten here a number of times over the last few years and this restaurant is no longer what it was despite rave reviews. The venue remains spectacular and service is still excellent but the food is really average at best, bland and unappetizing at worst. Presentation is unimaginative and it all tastes the same. And the prices are... More

We had a wonderful lunch on a beautiful winter's day on the terrace. Skilled waiters, they give good advise. Had a very nice appetiser with maquerel, yellowtail, looked like a picture and tasted superb. Followed by fish and chips and a very nice dessert with chocolate. All served with pairing wines ofcourse. BeautIful end of our trip in SA. !... More

We visited Delaire Graffe twice on our recent visit to stellenbosch. We came for dinner and enjoyed a delicious meal in a fantastic setting with great service. However, we returned for wine tasting the following afternoon as we hadn't been able to see the views given it was dark when we were there for dinner (and because their sparkling wine... More

This is a beautiful estate and not to be missed if you love wine and food. It was raining the day we were there which did detract from the view but even so, we were still impressed. The wine tasting lounge is stunning with comfortable lounges and fireplace as well as tables and an outside deck (but unfortunately too wet... More

The food surpassed our expectations. We had the line fish and the Springbok mains, which were both beautifully presented and tasty. The desserts looked like little works of art, and we were happy to find that they tasted just as good as they looked. The waiting staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable, which added to the overall pleasantness of our... More

Art meets cuisine meets winery. This is one superb experience. Even fish and chips are unbelievably cuisine, as is the ravioli of pumpkin. Tasting wines can be arranged for in the winetasting room adjacent to the restaurant. Only 80 rand for 5 wines, and enough in the glas too :) if you want a Tour, contact Delaire Graff a day... More

The most incredible views from the tables on the deck...ask for a seat near the railing. Vegetarian options are thin..tried to construct a meal out of starters but they were dull. Triple fried chips too oily. Young sommelier was friendly and unintimidating...most staff very pleasant and attentive except for one grumpy young lady. Service was excellent. Experience marred by the... More
