Hotel guests may enjoy breakfasts in the privacy of their Lodge or at the restaurant, where an indulgent array of dishes await, with gourmet ingredients handpicked from the area - berries from a nearby farm, the region's best charcuterie, organic dairy and decadent pastries - in addition to a selection of beautifully presented hot dishes.

Awesome restaurant! The decor, the setting and the view is very special. The service was faultless, the food amazing and great wine!

My hubby and I dined here for our anniversary while on holiday in South Africa, and we both agreed that it was the best meal we'd had on our trip. The staff was attentive and the food was well-prepared and imaginative. I would say that there was quite a bit of fried elements in the amuse bouche and the "snacks"... More

A very nice place, a good atmosphere and a good service into a Relais & Chateaux property. But that's all- Food very well presented but quite normal with a bad ratio quality/price (Price 500 pp) Absolutely unacceptable that in such a restaurant that rate itself as a first class one you have waiters which clean the wet cutlery around you...

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

Loved the food with its quality. Ambience was awesome and would like to visit again for sure. It is the best in its class. 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
