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

I enjoyed an excellent lunch, not that much on offer but everything was done to perfection and the taste was superb. The venue is wonderful and the views amazing. The service was tops.

A rainy evening in Paarl was transformed by warm welcome and culinary delight in the relaxed fine dining environment created by the folks in Bosman's. Service was attentive and graciously humorous. Each of the courses were creatively presented and deliciously balanced in flavour; exquisite variations on yellow fin, tiger prawns prepared at the table, and a glimpse of cheese heaven!... More

We attended a breakfast function, and were very disappointed with the service and lack of planning for the function. We were a group of 40 people, and they have clearly not thought about the logistics. There were also flies everywhere, I am sure there should be a way to address this?

We have been before, and were disappointed this year.Presentation brilliant, taste only ok. The view at sunset is breathtaking. I am a keen photographer, and take my tripod to photo the sunset, but the waiter would not let me have the table I requested (unoccupied all evening!). .
