Nice plating, subtle flavors, well executed! Good staff,super friendly and great wines. The reception desk and the lobby in the same venue is a bit weird, but once you get the plates, rest assured the quality is there!

The atmosphere at The Bosmans is very elegant, especially in the evening. The staff was very friendly. But I had problems with the menu. The menu for The Bosman was not very creative.
