Said farewell to one of my colleagues at Bosvelder at an impromptu party. Hadn't been there since 2007 and wasn't sure what the place was like...what a pleasant surprise!!! Great service, great traditional South African menu. Fun place to hang out and let your adventurous foodie side out!! Will be back for more.

We went for a late lunch to watch the rugby. It is a huge restaurant and will be a good choice for larger groups or parties, just has that feel about it. The menu is extensive with a number of traditional meals (tripe etc) that you don't often find in other places. We tried the carpaccio and the crumbed mushroom... More

The service is good and waiting time for food is short. The quality of the food is good. Never had a bad experience at "Die Bosvelder". Can recommend it to anyone... More

Noisy, no space, kitchen closes early, waiters non existencent. It is obvious that this restaurant mainly caters for the drinkers and the youngsters. Should they be more deserning of their clientele it could be a great place.

Had a meal at this restaurant. Did not like the dead animals on the walls, especially in this day and age where the focus should be on preservation. The food was an interesting experience. I tried the tripe which was delicious, the bone marrow dish was over-cooked and therefore the marrow shrunk and sat in little pools of fat, the... More

This is a good venue to experience true south african food and atmosphere, especially when there are national or provincial sport games on the telly. The furniture is average, but the food is good.

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.
