Graycliff great restaurant for a special occasion A review of Graycliff Hotel
We splurged on a birthday dinner at the Graycliff restaurant in Nassau. Everything about it was atmospheric, including the tab. The old stone foundation (thus "graycliff") used to be a soldier's garrison and there are still bars in the windows of what is now the wine cellar. Inside, the refined historic decor transports you to the 1920s. We enjoyed champagne cocktails in the lounge, where you can watch a woman roll cigars by hand. The stone crab, lobster, and filet mignon were delicious and the service was very attentive. There's good people watching, too, as the diners are all dressed to the 9's to impress - or at least, in their very best pressed bonefishing shirt. The Graycliff hotel itself has a slightly rundown air around the courtyards and cool mosiac tiled pool, and it's nowhere near the beach. But for a dressy and romantic break from conch and daquiris, it was ideal.
