I loved Indochine. The sunset from the balcony area was the perfect start to our dinner and we were lucky enough to have a warm enough night to be seated outside for our whole meal. We went for the tasting menu and we weren't disappointed. Every course and even the amuse bouche intervals were stunning. Im a big fan of... More

Gorgeous scenery. Not only is the hotel where the restaurant is located fabulous, but the vista (vines, rolling hills, mountains at the back) is awesome and the gardens around spectacular Service was very professional, though a bit on the slow side The food was superb...

We were invited to lunch at this extraordinary restaurant. Interior decorating just topped only by the beautiful gardens and view. Service was impeccable, as was the Delaire Graff rosè. My duck was prepared and dished up as a breathtaking display of sheer gastronomical delight. What a wonderful experience!

Gorgeous setting. We originally tried to get a reservation at Delaire Graff but it was fully booked hence chose Indochine. What a taste sensation! Beautifully presented food and such different flavours! We were a group of 7 and there were no complaints about any dish, quite a change. Would highly recommend!

The Fisch was excellent prepared . Waiters were very friendly. The restaurant was extremly loud. A normal conversation was hardly possibly. Still a restaurant top... More

We've chosen Indochine at Delaire Graff Estate as our restaurant for our last evening in South Africa and it was a major highlight of our trip. We've started with a glass of White Wine on the patio just in time for the sunset over Stellenbosch. The atmosphere was just perfect. We then went inside for dinner and the restaurant itself...

We had a fantastic lunch at the Restaurant,. The food was of an exceptional high standard. Very modern dishes, but very well prepared by the chefs. The service location and ambiance was perfect. A place to visit on your wine trip in South Africa.
