“Wow, twice in one trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

We stayed next door at Clouds and ate twice at Delaire Graff estate, including once at the Graff and once at Indochine. At both the food was exceptional as indeed was the service. Fantastic wine suggestions, and a perfect dinner capped off the perfect evening at this estate that has wonderful art everywhere, making taking a walk before dinner delightful.

“Definitely worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

This restaurant has been on my list of places to visit for a while and I finally had the pleasure of having lunch at Delaire Graff on a beautiful sunny day. We sat outside and the view is spectacular! The lunch menu has a nice variety and everything was delicious. The staff is also very friendly and helpful! Book in advance!

“Great restaurant.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

This is a beautiful vineyard, the views and surroundings are breathtaking. We didn't do the wine tasting here, but it looked very good. We had a meal at the restaurant and watched the sunset. The food was superb, very fine dining and excellent staff. It was my mums birthday when we went there and they brought out a special birthday cake for her. If you like fine dining and want to be in a lovely setting this is the place. Prices are excellent for the quality of the food and service. We paid around £35pp and we had staters, main and alcohol.

Came to dinner here from the neighbouring Clouds Estate and had the seven course taster menu, with the wine option, for my husband. Unfortunately, one of the recommended wines was not to my husband's taste, but there was no problem at all in changing it. Our waiters, Tonelle and Richard, were lovely - good conversationalists as well as being very attentive. On the whole the meal was fantastic, at least six of the seven courses were - we were just very disappointed with the final dessert (chocolate, what's not to love about that) which was very heavy and bitter at the end of what had been a delicious meal. That said, we would still go again!

“Stunning...food, wine, view and diamonds!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

One of the highlights of our trip to SA!

Everything was amazing.. From the meet and greet, layout, menu, wine! Recommend you book early as unable to get booked for dinner but managed a lunch reservation. On reflection I think if I was to back I would go for lunch again as you were able to absorb the setting and views!

Food was stunning, every course, presentation, flavours, composition of the dishes... Wine pairing perfect and staff so helpful. Head chef came out and introduced himself and had a chat, waiter had passed on my compliments about the dish, unexpected and a lovely touch!

So many highly recommended restaurants in the area however I think Delaire Graff has something special to offer!
