"We didn't want anything chi-chi"

So says Sally, Lady Graaff about the De Grendel Restaurant, and it should come as no surprise to those who know the Graaff family that De Grendel Restaurant is without high-design bells and whistles or frivolous embellishments.

We took our creative cue from the family farm house, blending it with the present with touches of De Grendel’s past. 

The glass-panelled eatery is decorated in much the same way the Graaff matriarchs adorned the historic De Grendel homestead. Personal paintings and old family photographs dot the walls, and we delft-blue porcelain underplates bearing the family crest were specially hand-crafted by renowned local ceramicist Mervin Gers.

 The glassed in kitchen contains the heat and noise, while letting you watch our chefs in action from the serene calm of your high-backed chairs and turned-wood tables in the dining area.
