Under Grain

Patrons describe it as an "exquisite dining experience" and are left "truly impressed".

Grain is a throwback to a classier time; a time of understated elegance – charming, self- assured, but never showy. Inspired by the tailoring workshops of the early 20th century, the decor is contemporary yet timeless, with elements of wenge, mohair upholstery, glass, touches of brass and contrasts of white. Suits, shawls, coats and hats from the golden age of fashion and tailoring paraphernalia tastefully adorn the dining area without ever becoming overbearing.

Grain presents four distinguished experiences to match your vibe. At Grain street, you’ll get to share a variety of delightful bites in a casual setting. Under Grain delights with a fusion of French and Mediterranean cuisine, where tastes, colours, aromas and textures come together like a bespoke suit crafted by the hands of a master tailor. Over Grain presents a relaxed, informal atmosphere with breathtaking views. It’s the perfect setting for entertaining guests when you want to be sure everything is just right. And if you’d like to dine in full privacy, there’s the private room. This dining area has a separate entrance and is ideal for business dining or that special family occasion that calls for something unique. Whichever experience you pick, smart and professional staff in impeccable, freshly pressed uniforms, will attend to your every need, keeping a discreet distance. As part of the prestigious AX Hotels portfolio, Grain is the first choice when nothing short of exceptional will do.
