The Grazia has this amazing ambiance as one enters. The host is very welcoming. The waitress was neatly dressed, polite and gave great suggestions on the menu. I had the "mango groove" Norwegian salmon with mango. Speciality of the night was the ostrich steak. All I can say is...Amazing!!!!

The food was cooked to perfection an presented beautifully. The service was excellence and never once did we have to ask for drinks or refill our glasses. The tables were cleared of empty plates, glasses immediately. The manners of all staff were wonderful. Being Christmas Eve, the restaurant went out of their way to make it festive with décor on...

Stayed over in East London on a Business Trip and decided to eat at Grazia ! What a wonderful experience ! Although fully booked, they accommodated us in the bar area. The service was excellent, the food outstanding - although the lobster bisque could have had a dash of cream and brandy in it ! The food was very good,... More

The restaurant is beautiful with beautiful views but the staff lacks customer service. I came to join my friends for sundowners, while we were seated we were told that our table was booked for later but this information was not shared upfront. When we asked if we should pay and leave as we were still eating, the person went to... More

We welcome all constructive criticism, we would like to point out the following Your friends arrived at 2pm, without booking, they were seated and some point advised that the table was booked for 7pm, and that the restaurant was fully booked for the evening, during the course of the day more guests joined the table, it eventually total to 6...

Every meal they serve is individual and exceptional. I get excited each time I get an opportunity to dine in this facility. Their steaks are fresh and well treated and seafood is as if they had just fetched same from the beach. Both management and staff are very friendly and make you feel at home.

OMW!!! What an awful experience. Hope we don't get sick of the bad food! Calamari was raw and MUSHY. Eeek! Yuck! I took a seafood platter for one. It was way to expensive for the quality of food that I got. Service was good though.

DEAR THERINE, We always welcome constructive criticism, It is unfortunate that if you had a problem you did not say so, to the manager that visited your table several times, it is unfortunate that you did not take the opportunity and give us the opportunity to view your meal. You also did not take the opportunity to report the complaint... More
