Came to dinner here from the neighbouring Clouds Estate and had the seven course taster menu, with the wine option, for my husband. Unfortunately, one of the recommended wines was not to my husband's taste, but there was no problem at all in changing it. Our waiters, Tonelle and Richard, were lovely - good conversationalists as well as being very... More

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
