“Absolutely LOVE Bossa Somerset West”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Thanks Bossa for an fantastic venue, where my kids can play and I can enjoy grown-up conversation with a cocktail in hand. Been there a few times and every time was a pleasure. Love the ambiance and the food is great, caters for everybody from Sushi to the awesome trio of fillets. See you soon.

“very cute cafe' ideal for kids”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

The Bossa service and food was excellent we were a large table ranging from age 18 months to 70 and everyone was happy. Pizza good but seafood platter fantastic , good value for money , must be the Jozi girl in me but I could not get over the prices. House wine served in a bottle with no label , very cute and quite drinkable...Nice wooden tables under the trees in front of the kids play area , nice casual dining in the long sunset that you get only in the Cape.

“Lunch Time Treat”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

My partner and I were here on a Friday afternoon, as we know the evenings tend to get busy and we enjoy the more quiet lunch time atmosphere. That being said, the service was friendly and helpful, if somewhat forgetful. We enjoyed their current pizza lunch time special (R50 for any pizza) accompanied by their always-delightful sushi. I must elaborate on their sushi, as it is by far my favourite food, and I am easily disappointed. Our sushi at Bossa is always fresh, well-proportioned and neatly presented, not slapped together with 90% rice and 10% filling as so many places do these days. Bossa remains my go-to restaurant in the Helderberg area, as they always have some sort of worthwhile special on, management is always present and there is something for everyone on their menu.
