Delaire Graff is that kind of winery who even the small details are well maintained. The result is a stunning place where it's possible to enjoy a good wine tasting. Definitely worth a visit!!!

Once you pass the main gate you are captured by the wonderful garden all with indigenous plants along the driveway. Arriving on he parking lot a friendly person shows you the right bay. At the restaurant reception you are welcome and lead to your table or like we did go to the terrace, to enjoy the stunning view while you... More

We had been to this vineyard for a wine tasting previously and had been blown away by the views and the beautifully kept gardens. This year we managed to get a table in the restaurant (after a last minute cancellation) and what a treat! The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The staff were attentive but not overbearing and the... More

We did not know this property before being taken over by Laurence Graff but it certainly is worth a visit. It's 45 minutes from Cape Town and the property is faultless in the classic way that it has been restored with the addition of the stunning views from every direction. There were 6 of us on this visit for lunch... More

Having thoroughly enjoyed lunch a number of times at Graff Restaurant, I was confident about recommending UK guests who appreciate the finer things in life to this restaurant. Unfortunately a series of events unfolded including hair in sauce....more than one dish....corked wine, and all in all nothing good about the food. The manager insisted there was no charge for lunch,... More

Compared to all the glowing reviews here I am afraid I couldn't really warm up to the charme of this winery-turned-boutique-hotel. I was here last time about a decade ago, when it was just Delaire Winery, and no Delaire Graff Estate existed. The views were the same, absolutely stunning, but the concept was less outrageously over-the-top. I remember the wines... More

If you want a more contemporary restaurant and the Top Notch Sister restaurant Indochine this is a very good alternative. We had a fantastic dinner with a lot of different flavors, very nice. The service was extremely good and the wine list was also very nice. I rate it 6 out of 10.

Superbe view, excellent food, very good wines, in an exceptional setting with many beautiful art pieces. Highly recommended, including for exceptional occasions, as was our case with a birthday.

Very disappointing that on a beautiful summer evening they do not serve food on the veranda! Inside the atmosphere is OK & the food is to match. Nothing special & a bit too fussy!
