The food was varied but pretty ordinary - it looked better than it tasted and the wine was over-priced. The worst meal on our 2 week trip to the Cape.

An outstanding venue with an exceptional menu and very friendly staff. You may also sit outside, enjoying the view, while you get pampered!

We have been regulars at Bosmans, Grande Roche since 1999 and frequently host lunch parties there with friends including once a major celebration using their conference centre. It has always been among my favourite restaurants anywhere in the world but a visit on Sunday 20/11 indicates it is slipping or the accountants are in charge. Knowing the place so well,... More

This was one of the best lunches we have had this year. From spot on the porch overlooking Paarl was spectacular. From the hostess to the waiters; they were all friendly, attentive and professional! The food was super delicious and attention to detail in the plating was superb. Afternoon well spend.

Going for lunch or dinner at the Bosman's Restaurant is an amazingly divine experience. Excellent handling of our booking, very friendly and knowledgeable staff and a menu to die for. A great combination of international cuisine with a very special innovative twist. We had planned to do "only" starters and mains, but the salad, beef carpaccio, osso bucco and sirloin... More

Apart from the nice view I can't think of anything nice to say. I should have been warned when trying to book it. It took 6 phone calls, 3 emails and 2 attachments. On the first phone call the handset was put aside and after 7 min we hung up. We called again and a booking for the next day... More

Yes, it's quite expensive for South Africa, but worth the price (we tried the 6 menu course.) Food was great. Service to beginning great, starting to get just a little less at the end... maybe due to the fact that we were nearly the last guest, but at that price range, service should work top till the last minute). Also... More
