Lovely food, lovely service. Even though we booked outside on the veranda as it was a balmy evening, I really did not expect smoking being allowed in a five star restaurant like this........unfortunately the three ladies puffing away at the table next to us really spoilt this experience for me.

I've heard many good things about Bosman's restaurant, but nothing prepared me for the extraordinary culinary experience we encountered. The attention to detail and guest satisfaction is at a level not often seen at restaurants any more. The food was incredible, the service impeccable and a Grande Time was had! Bravo!

My in-laws were in town so we decided on tea as a treat on a rainy Saturday. Staff were friendly but I couldn't help thinking that they could do with a bit if polish. Firstly, I had to tell three different people who I was and that I'd made a booking for tea, after I'd arrived. (When making the booking... More

We ate here when staying at Grande Roche. The food was excellent with a good wine list too. It was off season when we visited so the restaurant was very quiet, a bit like eating in the hotel lobby. Staff were knowledgable and attentive.

What should have been a great night out for our dinner club turned into a nightmare at Bosmans. All was good until a British group of 30 celebrated their loss (rugby match) with a song which turned into a raucous affair. People standing on chairs and tables shouting at the top of their voices. This most shocking was the staff... More

This stunning restaurant has pages of awards, including the "Best Restaurant in South Africa" a couple of years ago! It has a stella reputation and it's well deserved. The menu has a classic European and tradition African feel to it. You really MUST try the steaks!! The wine list runs to 48 pages covering all budgets. The service is discrete... More

Poor reception. Poor service. Fireplace made restaurant smell. Had my fathers day lunch there. Set menu. Great soup starter but terrible fish dish as main. Wine excellent but pricey.

We spent a night at the Grand Roche Hotel for an anniversary celebration and decided to enjoy dinner at Bosman's. I had heard great things about the restaurant and was happy that I was eventually going to experience it myself. It was a hot day and the evening was warm, so we sat outside on the terrace with a beautiful... More
