We have eaten well around the world and this restaurant is in the top league. The service was friendly and professional. They dealt with allergies well. Although the view was great, the food was why you go there. It delivered on its excellent reputation and exceeded it. All six meals were enjoyed immensely by our party. See the menu and... More

We really looked forward to our evening at the restaurant. It is impressive from the moment you turn into the drive. The gardens along the road are up-lit and well cared for. There is African art along the walk on the way in and in the lobby is a beautiful yellow diamond about the size of the rock that killed... More

Alone the surrounds are worth the visit and the cuisine stands up to it. Ahh, and the wines are world class too, of course.

Imagine your table: right at the edge of the dining area overlooking the mountains and vineyards, sitting in the sun drinking G&T whilst the champagne bottle clinks slightly as the ice melts in the bucket, and asking yourself what the hell this is all going to cost. Relax. It came to £130 for 2 eating full a la carte lunch,... More

If you are in Stellenbosch, this is the restaurant you need to go to have dinner. For any european people you will eat like in a two three michelin stars restaurant. The food and wine pairing 10 dishes degustation menu is just outstanding with the different chefs coming to your table to explain some dishes. The waiters and the sommeliers... More

Always love the setting at Delaire, which is probably worth going for alone. Service staff were friendly and attentive too, and wine list is impressive (although the mark-ups are in certain cases ludicrous). The food was however quite ordinary, which when compared to some of the top establishments in the area, does leave one wondering exactly how they justify their... More

Our wonderful evening began with the drive up the hill lined with lovely sculptures and gardens to the restaurant/resort entrance. It was a beautiful evening with the sun setting and the moon rising over the incredibly picturesque mountains and surrounding vineyards. There are many beautiful sculptures both inside and outside of the property. We were seated straight away at a... More

Excellent view and facilities but food so so and overpriced. If you want to pay for the view... You can pay for it or drive by to a smaller more cosy restaurant.

This restaurant was unbelievably beautiful and the food was fantastic. It made us feel like a member of the rich and famous without the high prices. During our short visit we actually went to this restaurant twice because of the great views and the good food. Be sure and take a tour of the entire estate via the golf carts... More

My husband and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary recently. We decided to have lunch at Delaire Graff Restaurant, which was a spontaneous decision. I called them that morning and they booked us right away. The service was out of this world, and every detail was taken care of. We were welcomed and treated like royalty. What a magnificent place.... More
