They really have done an amazing job setting up this place. The views are gorgeous. The food is absolutely top quality, and actually arrived faster than anticipated. Possibly too fast. Service is good. My only real criticism is that the chairs are too low for the tables. So eating is actually quite awkward. A shame, since they obviously didn't spare much when it came to design and equipment.
With the weather in our favor and being able to sit outside on the deck, we had a fabulous time.
The last slight irritation we noticed as we left was that only one car can pass through the security gate at a time. So cars trying to leave the property had to sit and wait as vehicles entering the premises had to fill in the questionnaire with the security guard. Badly designed. But I'm sure they could solve the problem with a bit of effort.

Had great food, presented as fine dining should. The atmosphere was just very boring. I would suggest a better speaker system for the music to be able to create more of an atmosphere. We sat down at 7 & left 22:30. During this time period the Restaurant only saw 4 tables which made it feel a little eerie.

Stopped here for lunch and was not disappointed. It was by far the best meal in South Africa. Service was excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend the restaurant.

Heaven and Earth meet here to dine . With the most spectacular scenery to provide food for the soul, so is the food and ambiance at the Graff Restaurant at Delaire Graff Wine Estate .
Situated on the Helshoogte Pass just a mere 10 minute drive out of Stellenbosch ,the driveway of beautifully landscaped gardens is a treat on its own and sets the stage for the treat to come.
Weather permitting ,seating outside on the deck provides this breath taking view ,whilst attention to detail ,great service and a generous menu ,fuse with the gracious ambiance to provide one an unforgettable dining experience .Delaire Graff have defined elegant presentation with taste . The chocolate or vanilla dessert are absolutely something to remember. A must !
