Description: Die Bosvelder is closer to a holiday in the veld, than a mere eatery. This restaurant and pub offers a unique experience where the traditional South African lifestyle can be enjoyed. A restaurant with no pretences, Die Bosvelder is true to its name. Wooden furniture and a unique African feel await the diner. It is as South African as a restaurant can get, the people included. Die Bosvelder epitomises traditional South African-ness. It offers wonderful food, laid-back ambience and the friendliest service you're likely to find in Africa. The bushveld is a South African trademark and this original concept restaurant has kept the allure and feel of the veld. The interior and the food pays homage to one of the country's favourite destinations. Eat "kaiings", pofadder or skilpadjie, while enjoying the African sun on your back.

“Good old fashioned Boerekos!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

Don't be in a hurry when you decide to vist the Bosvelder as good food takes time to prepare. The food is true Boerekos and a comfort for those missing hearty home style meals like "ouma" use to make.

“Very Disappointing.”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

The service was good, but the food was disappointing. The manager was not very supportive when we had a problem with a child kicking a rugby ball into the eating area. Instead of solving the problem, he made it more uncomfortable by pointing us out to the parents, as the ones having a problem with the child kicking the ball into the eating area. According to the manager the people were there since the morning drinking and therefore they became aggressive and used foul language at us.
After this restaurant was recommended to us, we expected better control of (problem drunk people).
I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to sit down to an relaxing atmosphere.

“Amazing food and atmosphere!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is not you typical restaurant menu. Bosvelder offers the normal type of restaurant food, but then also has some real "boerekos" and African foods.

I have always loved the quality of the food, no matter what we eat each time we go here. The staff are also very friendly...every single time.

One of my favourite spots to go for a bite or just a drink.
