A beautiful place!! However the waiters are terrible! Very forward, overly familiar and have only one thing one their minds- the TIP!!! I wrote to the Delaire Graff Estate to complain, but got NO response!! It is no use having beautiful surrounds if you do not employ capable people!

This place is magical! The restaurant is superb, with five stars service. The wine tasting and food are incredible. And the view...vineyards and mountains! Don't miss it!

Fantastic birthday lunch. Food presentation as good as anywhere we have been. High service standards. Magical views. Reasonably priced by international standards.

quite simply a beautiful location, with super-helpful staff and great food and wine. It also has perhaps the cleanest and sweetest smelling toilets in Africa. Check out the pictures on the web. It's breathtaking.

A friend and I visited Delaire for her birthday lunch. We had some stunning oysters and Colmant brut to start followed by an incredible beef fillet accompanied by Delaire Graff Estate's Botmaskop red wine. We both highly recommend the salted caramel creme brulee - amazing! Thank you to all the wonderful staff at Delaire whose service was the best we... More

When cruising through the South African wine lands, we ended up in delaire as recommanded by our hotel staff, and like they told us, this is most likely one of the best winelands in South-Africa. They have a lovely wine bar, with live Piano music. We enjoyed our wine while watching the great view over the winelands and mountains. Also... More

My friends and I were just recently in Stellenbosch for two days and debated back and forth about where to eat our first lunch. Luckily, we reserved a table at the Delaire Graff and were completely charmed by the venue, food, staff, and prices. We started with oysters and they were some of the best I've had, period. They were... More

Beautiful setting, impressive decor and art. Relative good service. For what you pay it is simply not worthwhile. The food looks good but the cuisine is very average and for R750 per head it is certainly overpriced.

After reading all the reviews I was very excited to try the lunch menu and I was unfortunately a little disappointed in the food. The fish & chips were rather oily and nothing special, others in the group had the beef dish which they said was very good. The service is excellent and the setting is amazingly beautiful. Well worth... More
