The food, service, and location of this restaurant are amazing! Should definitely have a Michelin star. The flavours, the presentation of the food I cannot praise highly enough, and the service is impeccable. Add to this wonderful eating experience the view of the mountains while sitting on the terrace and it is a truly memorable experience. Fantastic!

Lovely location, and high class appearance. The place for that special occasion. Food was good, without being exceptional. Beautifully presented. One criticism, the quality of the service at the table was disappointing for a restaurant aiming at fine dining. No one was rude, but just lacked attention to detail. I would have come away with a much more positive attitude... More

Went for dinner with my wife for her birthday. When arrived, were asked if we want to sit outside on the terrace which was very tempting as it was a stunning evening. But unfortunately, it is also a smoking area?? That also explained the cigar aroma inside the restaurant area, where we decided to sit. Service started fine and attentive... More

My wife and I went for dinner last week and the food was good. The service was not up to scratch. Had to ask for a menu when they wanted to take our order. I selected the wine pairing which was explained to me that the cost is steep and they usually do it for foreigners...I said I would like... More

We were a table of 6 - ranging in age from 10 years, 21 - mid 50's looking for a special day out to spoil a friend in pleasant surroundings. We enjoyed lunch on the terrace outside, where they have a small Bistro menu. The view is spectacular and the pretty garden, tinkling fountain and surrounding vineyards & chirping birds... More

Having visited many restaurants in the Cape Winelands over the past few years, it is apparent how competitive the restaurant industry is in this region. The impression of the Bosman's restaurant begins with the view overlooking the Southern suburbs of Paarl onto the backdrop of the Klein Drakenstein mountain range. The service throughout the evening was exceptional. Each person serving... More
