We were recently given a dinner voucher for R1000 by some friends for Indochine Restaurant at Delaire Graff Estate. My husband and I booked a reservation for 730pm on Saturday evening. When we arrived at the entrace to the estate, the guard was expecting us and told us where to park. The sun was setting and it couldn't have been a more beautiful evening. The location of Delaire Graff is second to none and completely breathtaking with views to Table Mountain on one side and to Franschhoek on the other. A driver in a golf cart was waiting for us in the parking lot to escort us to the restaurant just a short ride away. We were greeted by a very friendly manager who lead us to our table. Our dinner consisted of 5 courses (Amuse-Bouche compliments of the chef, starters, palate cleansers, main and dessert). Every mouthful was an experience in itself. It is advisable to order every course, as the portions are quite small, although we certainly did not leave feeling empty. They have an extensive wine menu with bottles starting at around R400 which we found a bit pricey, but as this is not a restaurant you'd be visiting every month, it's certainly worth every penny. I ordered a lamb curry as my main course and the meat was slightly tough, and the chef said he wasn't happy with it either, so they did not charge us for it.
*NB* For 1 couple eating 5 courses each and 1 (reasonably priced) bottle of wine you can be expected to pay no less than R1000.00 for the meal.
