Fine dining and service excellence at Bosman’s Restaurant

Bosman's Restaurant

On a recent business trip to Paarl, my daughter and I got to enjoy a fine dining experience at the Bosman’s Restaurant, situated at the 5-star luxury Grande Roche Hotel, in the heart of this beautiful town.

The hotel’s location is stunning with its front-row view to Paarl Mountain and endless rows of vines as well as beautiful manicured gardens.

Since it was a perfect summer evening, we sat outside on the terrace. We were welcomed by a friendly waiter, who quickly brought us a glass each of chilled Iona Sauvignon Blanc 2018 while we glanced through their menu and extensive wine list compromising of 218 wines.

Bosman’s Restaurant has a great menu

Though the restaurant offers an à la carte menu, our waiter recommended the Chef’s Choice Surprise multi-course menu with options of three, four and seven courses. Talented Chef, Roland Gorgosilich, and his team combine his Austrian heritage and classical French training to create amazing dishes with locally-procured and seasonal fresh ingredients.

The ambience of this establishment is sophisticated and formal with tables covered with white tablecloths and elegant cutlery.

Our three-course meal began with a Slow Braised Black Angus Beef Cheek with celeriac crème, butter glazed finger carrots, raw marinated rainbow carrots slices and summer truffle jus, was cooked to perfection, juicy and flavorful and this was paired with a red Rhebokskloof Pinot Noir 2011.

Next, we were served a palette cleanser comprising of Cucumber-Gin-Granite and Yoghurt-Lime Mousse with honey pearls, compressed garden cucumber and apple-mint salsa. There are no words to describe it!

Food so good it’s hard to describe!

For the mains, we were served Sous Vide Cooked Springbok Loin – a luxuriously and gamely tender piece of meat served with broccoli-almond puree, panko crumbed mushroom risotto praline, with red port wine, poached baby figs, grilled oyster mushrooms and springbok jus paired with a red Landskroon Cape Vintage 2012.

We still managed to devour the dessert, an Oven Braised Garden Peach with caramelized white chocolate cremeux, buttermilk sorbet, peach mousse, wheat Croquant, and lavender flowers, fruity and light on the palette and this was paired with a 1997 Boplaas Port.

Needless to say, we really enjoyed our evening at Bosman’s Restaurant and can highly recommend them for any occasion or just an even out with special friends!

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.

Adventure!

You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
