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. Either fish, springbook or beef. Nothing for me. All in this cape wine area we found so many creative menus in restaurants or bistros on vineyards, but... More

We stayed at the Grande Roche Hotel for a week and eat at Bosmans most nights. Bosmans is a very popular restaurant with stunning views, and seems to attract locals not just the hotel guests. It serves what I would describe as Nouveau Cuisine, which was very fashionable in the UK about 15 years ago. Plates dotted with very small... More

I spontaniously booked a table at the "Bubbles & Braai" Event. It was an amazing experience. The venue, the staff, then opod and the drinks are amazing. This was one of ther eat dinner experiences I had for year. By far this is the best restaurant in Paal and à must for anybody who appreciates great food and service.

After all the hype & boasting about the high tea at GR we decided to try it out. But the whole experience was NOT worth it AT ALL & has left an EXTREMELY bitter taste in our mouths!!
