“39th wedding anniversay”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

The food was exquisite and the ambience of the restaurant set the mood for a romantic evening. The chef comes from Austria and fine attention was given to each serving. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Background music was soft and pleasant

“Yes to the food, NO to the wine.”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

The Grande Roche has to be one of the finest hotels we have stayed in anywhere. It is luxurious but intimate, superbly managed, and without doubt peerless of its kind in South Africa.
Interestingly enough, we managed to get accommodation for a room there more inexpensively through bookings.com than from the hotel itself. The room was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The gardens have justly won many awards and are a particular pleasure. We also ate at the hotel restaurant which is named "Bosmans". The food was expensive, but they justified the top price (R250 for duck!). What are NOT justified are the outrageous prices for the wines on offer. $95 for a local wine? Forget it. So my advice is - stay there, eat there, drink water. Or eat elsewhere in Paarl (there are several delightful, more modest restaurants).

“Fine dining in Paarl”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

This is one of South Africa's great restaurants. It is absolutely in the top class for excellence. The ambience is delightful, the staff are attentive and knowledgeable, the service impeccable, the food 'to die for' and the wine list impressive. We had the tasting menu with accompanying wines and it was an excellent choice. The portions were of the right size and the interval between courses particularly well timed. The sommelier described each wine in an interesting and informative way - adding detail about the vinyards and owners. We left the table having had a memorable experience with such a variety of tastes in both food and wine. This is a meal for a special occasion in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. Can't wait to return. Book in advance so as not to miss out.

“Special treat”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

This restaurant is located in a 5 star Grande Roche Hotel. It is difficult to get a table, as most are reserved for the hotel guests. However, if you are lucky to get a table, you are in for a treat. Fantastic views from the terrace, bespoke service and delicious food.
