An astonishingly grand estate and restaurant - very good meal with lovely seasonal ingredients. Service can be a bit shaky, depending on the staff member, but generally very good.

We chose Delaire Graff for our special evening out during our week in Cape Town. We were not disappointed. We took the tasting menu option and can thoroughly recommend it. Each course was so delicious: it was gourmet cooking at its very best, beautifully presented and wonderful in taste and flavour. Along side the food we tasted 3 different wines,... More

Just tried Delaire Graaff again this past weekend (Sept 6). Tasting menu = "Fall Solstice" really? bc 1) it is Spring (yes we are in the southern hemisphere) 2) did the tasting menu not change all Winter? 3) Fall does not have a solstice - it's an equinox. inappropriate food for the season, so we passed on the tasting menu....
