An unforgettable fine dining journey

There is great beauty to be found in simplicity. It exudes intimacy and sophistication. Grei at the Saxon invites you to indulge in delicious dishes created by Head Chef, Candice Philip. Grei replaces rush with serenity. Our cuisine is succulent and textural, with herbaceous and natural themes.


Grei, which loosely translates from Portuguese as “a society of people” blends together Chef Candice’s love of unusual pairings, her passion for herbaceous flavours and her signature style of intricately-plated dishes. Appropriately, her menu has the aroma and flavour of the herbs running through it. Dishes feature unusual pairings and natural, succulent flavours. The menu highlights the three key flavours from each dish.
The menu is a six-course tasting menu, paired with a combination of international and local wines. There is also be a non-alcoholic pairing option as well as vegetarian- and pescatarian-suited menus.
Within the first year of opening, Grei was nominated as World’s Leading Fine Dining Hotel Restaurant 2018 by the World Travel Awards – and again in 2019.
In their first year of being eligible, Grei was awarded a 2 plate rating by JHP Gourmet Guide – ‘exceptional dining that demands a detour’.

The restaurant is open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 18:30 in the evening. Booking is essential.
