Bosman’s Restaurant at The Grande Roche Hotel (Paarl)

Kick off the day with a luxurious breakfast buffet. The elegant setting will make you feel pampered as you enjoy offerings of seasonal fruit, local yoghurts and cheeses, cold cuts, and Danish pastries. Hot items include eggs done to your liking with a choice of hearty accompaniments. For a party of eight or less, the cost is R220 per person and for nine or more guests it’s R200 per person.

Flavours at The Devon Valley Hotel (Stellenbosch)

Terrace-style eating is offered at this pretty spot, nestled in the verdant Devon Valley, but there’s also the cosy interior for chilly days. The Sunday buffet is wildly popular and features around 12 starters, meaty main courses of lamb, pork, oxtail, famous chicken-and-mushroom pie, and various accompaniments. Desserts are a treat, and the cheese platter with pear-and-raisin chutney and excellent coffee complete the generous offering, which is priced at R265 a head.
