One of those special places where we can say 'Proudly South African'! The stunning indigenous gardens, the modern architecture, the gob smacking view, the high quality food and friendly smiles from all who welcome you, all combine to make it an unforgettable experience. We sometimes go just for a cup of tea and even that is made a special treat... More

Love food and fine dining--this a great place. I recommend considering lunch. We went for dinner, which was excellent, but prevented us from seeing the views, which I imagine are fantastic. Both the food and wine were very good and the service was also exceptional, but quite expensive.

The place has a stunning view and is worth a drive before sunset. Amazing building and art collection make the location a must. The food per se was very good; I was taken by the tempura oysters (who would ever go for tempura oysters, but what a surprise!) but did not fall in love for anything in particular. Certainly fits...

The drive up to Delaire is one of the best in the wine lands, and we have tried many of the key restaurants in this area. It is clear that a lot of money has been spent on this restaurant, with stunning landscaping and exquisite sculptures all around, and it certainly feels very five star with an abundance of staff,...

I was blown away from this place. It was absolutely gorgeous!!! The food was outstanding. Everything I ate was beyond delicious. The wine was fantastic too. The view was unbelievable.

I recently took my wife to the restaurant for her birthday. The staff were highly attentive and offered great service! The food was amazing and the restaurant had great ambience. Went on a cold day and was awesome to be seated next to the fire place. We can't wait to go back!!!

A very unique experience on a wonderful property. The restaurant staff is highly skilled offering great service. The food is excellent and the ambience very nice on either a beautiful day or a cold one. In USD terms, this is also a very good value when everything is taken into consideration, ambience, view, service, food.

The Graff states is just beautiful! Mr. Graff went all in on this faboulous winery with outstanding wines and a beautiful, amazing setting. We had the wine tasting with cheeses. Everything was perfect. Worth it every penny!
