Nearly impossible to get a table here even when trying to book several weeks ahead, so we were lucky to get a cancellation at lunchtime. After a must do wine tasting in perfect surroundings, a leisurely lunch on a glorious terrace under giant oak trees is simply magical. The dishes match the luxurious surroundings, so everything was perfectly cooked and... More

Do yourself a favour and book a table here for lunch. We were sat with unobstructed views of the mountains and vineyards on a perfect sunny day. Service is attentive and not at all pretentious, despite the grandeur of the Delaire Estate. We had 2 Insta worthy and delicious courses and wine for lunch and found it reasonably priced for...

Take a while to wonder about and marvel at the gardens and other buildings on the estate. We had lunch on the terrace with a jaw dropping view. Service was friendly (Pascal) and efficient. Dining was not 'fine' but reasonably good. My seafood linguini was too salty and @ R370 short of pasta. My wife had the chicken which was... More

This is a great experience in a true 5 star resort. The outside terrace is breathtaking with beautiful views down the valley and a great place to enjoy a glass of MCC. The restaurant is a bit more generic... nice but without the personality of the terrace. All the staff are first glass, they are genuinely friendly and appear very... More

We had dinner there two days ago. Amazing setting and great views. I would recommend to go there during day time to enjoy the views and gardens. Food at the Asian restaurant was superb.

We visited the beautiful Graff estate and had booked the Delaire Graff restaurant. We have traveled a month around the Cape and have seldom been disappointed with the food. Here the portions were too big and the taste of the food was average. The wine list was not as good as other places we visited. The waiters were charming and... More

We are often in the Cape at my wife's birthday time. As I did last year I booked again to go to the lovely Delaire Graff estate restaurant- this time we tried the Oriental one. I booked the date and received a confirmation, so I arrived thinking all was well. However imagine my horror when the reception told me that... More

Gorgeous venue, excellent food and great service. Made us feel really special whilst we were there. I just wish I had dressed up a little more! Go smart casual ftw, jeans, shirt and shoes at least!
