Part of the beautiful Delaire Estate, this is the hidden secret. Whilst most rush to the "hit and miss" main crowded Restaurant, the food is much better here. Not as breathtaking a view, but more private and personalised. Smaller Dining are beautifully decorated with the best of SA art. Excellent service, and tempting menu leave one uncertain which to choose.... More

Service was very nice and felt like each item which was ordered was just made for us specially. Also complimentary items from chef was very good. It has great view if you site outside. One must...

My wife and I spent two nights at Delaire Graff, so we ate three meals at Indochine, two breakfasts & one dinner. The breakfasts were good, with a wide variety of options, great service and it was obviously quick and easy. We liked our dinner, but with so many amazing restaurants during our honeymoon, Indochine didn't stand out as special.... More

Third time going there and I am loving it. The Asian influence is making the dishes so tasty and special. I would recommend the soups and beef. Service is also very good and professional, the team is very well trained. It is one of my favourite restaurant in South Africa.

We decided to try the taster menu and it did not disappoint. In fact we had to decline the dessert as we were too full! The food was immaculately presented, full of interesting flavours & textures. The service was excellent but the credit card machine was not working so had to fork out a lot of cash before we could... More

This was a fantastic meal from beginning to end. The beautiful and stimulating setting, from the copper tables, the banzais, and the magnificent swallows to the elegant and mysterious cheetahs, the Shaka saga and the dog in the canoe, made this memorable. The food was art itself as well, and the small menu did not leave one feeling bereft of... More

Had a very nice dinner by the fire in this lovely winery. The staff could not have been nice and the food very good. The restaurant is just part of this experience. The have thought of everything here!
