Hi, I went here for a sit down coffee with a friend. I did not eat any of the food, so I cannot report on that. I ordered a flat white, and it came out in a reasonable time frame. The coffee had an unpleasant taste - not bitter or burnt, it actually tasted sour. The cafe is in a... More

This is a small restaurant with seating for 26 only so it's important to book. In warmer weather the footpath will accommodate more. Kim, the host, warmly greets and seats diners. John is the talented chef and Deborah as waitress helps add to the friendly atmosphere. The entree seafood chowder could have been filled a little more (because it was... More

The staff were friendly and efficient, the food that we ordered was very tasty and the portion sizes are generous. The fact you can byo your wine or choose from Graze selection of wines was also pleasing for us. We will definitely eat at Graze again.

We had a lovely meal on Wednesday night (AKA Italian night ) with friends. All the meals were fresh, ingredients delicious and well presented. We all enjoyed our meals very much.The Italian Night is not just the usual pizza & pasta like a lot of restaurant fare masquerading as "Italian food" but on the night we went to Graze there... More

A truly amazing meal! Inspired by the various cuisines across the Italian landscape and flavoured accordingly! John is a wonderful solo chef , supported by Neil running the floor. Well worth the trip to the little valentine village. Don't wait for Valentine's Day!

Lovely little restaurant in Valentine, great hosts and nice food. Pleasant atmosphere lovely cloth napkins on Saturday nights giving the restaurant a classy feel. Friday night is less impressive and not as special with paper napkins which sends a message of a lack of attention to detail and Friday night diners are not quite as special to management.

A lovely little restaurant with a great menu and friendly staff. This restaurant is licensed its off the beaten track but as it is very handy to where I live I find it ideal for me. The chef has put together a very appealing menu and the selection of wines lovely. It is becoming very popular so bookings are essential.

Graze is a small but high quality little restaurant hidden away from the noise in the picturesque suburb of Valentine. New owners have provided a lease of life with an outstanding menu. The coffee is first class too!

Entrees - good choice and I had king prawns which were large, and crispy fresh. For mains I had the veal and my husband... More
