We loved this place! The nice view into the rosegarden and the mountains it is marvellous! We had a wonderful sommelier who suggested us a perfect chardonnay and with the maincourse a nice blend! Perfect in temperatur ( red wines in SA are often too warm) The food was also delicious. We can highly recommand this restaurant.

Treated" to lunch here by a friend. Found dishes a bit confused. A a cold beetroot soup comprising two tablespoons of a red liquid and two small beet slices was overpowered by a large pice of strong flavoured smoked salmon. To correctly serve a cold soup you must chill the dish, this was actually warm. Main of a paella "risotto"... More

Congratulations to the chef and his crew for a very good meal. The head of service is very nice, competent, attentive and on top an exceptionally good singer. As she accompanied the piano with her beautiful voice.

Bowman's restaurant has never disappointed. The service is faultless and all staff have impeccable manners and exceptional knowledge of what they serve. The menu is varied, although quite typically South African as there is always one or two game dishes available.

Definitely fine dining at its best. Very sophisticated and high attention to detail. From fragrant hand towels for hygienic reasons and a high selection of bread, to the presentation of the dishes and the quality of the food. This is truly an amazing experience.

This is proper fine dining but not at extortionate prices. The food was exquisite, the service impeccable and the sommelier, Jacques, should be consulted and his advice taken. He certainly added considerably to our enjoyment of the meal and we noted that each member of staff during the evening made our acquaintance most discreetly. This made us feel right at... More
