No tables set on the terrace but could enjoy the view anyway. We ate freshwater crayfish (delicious), dessert "guanaja and orange mushrooms) very good and beautiful presentation. Drank a good rose wine. An enjoyable lunch break while visited the area.

The view is breathtaking! The restaurant is also very good. Although Delaire Graff is not so child friendly when it comes to food but you will still find something for your little ones even if it's plain chips. Otherwise the restaurant is excellent though very pricey but I still recommended it.

The location is gorgeous, the views are stunning, the food is sublime. I was breathtaken by the whole experience! The service is worth mentioning as well, our waiter was excellent and explained every detail of our meal.

This places justifies the price tag. The dishes were Asian influenced. The seafood and fish was fresh. The spicing bought out the flavours of the ingredients without drowning them. My favourite was the brightly flavoured prawn salad starter. The wine recommendation (Nitida Riesling ) by the sommelier was not a house bottle but was a brilliant partner for the spicy... More

We enjoyed lunch in delightful surroundings. I’d suggest arrange a wine tasting first (allow 60 to 90 minutes for the wine tasting) then have a meal. The gardens are beautiful to walk round so allow plenty of time for a chilled out visit.

We stayed in a lodge for two nights and had dinner in both restaurants. We expected it to be good, but not THAT good! Every aspect of the Graff Delaire is just that bit better than we expected. Lovely rooms, pools, amenities, original art, people - everyone - gardens, walks around the estate, views, location, extreme thoughtfulness from everyone, food,... More

We went to Delaire Graff for Dinner because of a friends recommendation and so far it has been our worst dinner in South Africa. The oysters were great but other than that the food was lacking taste, not even the tomato- mozzarella was good, mozzarella had no taste at all and for the mains the meat was really hard and...

This is an extraordinary estate - part art gallery housing the collection of Laurence Graff the diamond billionaire, part vineyard, part hotel and restaurant, and part jewellery showcase. And it is relatively new. Built from scratch just 13 years ago, the first wines were produced for sale in 2009. Nestling on the hillside overlooking the valley to the dramatic Simonsberg... More

We had the most sumptuous lunch at Indochine as well as purchasing some of the most delicious wines from Laurence Graaff's estate - the perfect day out in Stellenbosch.
