A great place for a local red & some spanish-french tapas at Sea point. Serves late for Cape town standards

The restaurant is okay and the staff is service minded and welcoming. The risotto for starter was quite good. The gnocchi for main were far from what I expect when ordering that dish.

I was here 2 years ago and the food is still very good and low prices. I had a steak with risotto. Not very French and the combination had I not tried before. My steak was perfect. Best steak I have had in CT. And the risotto was great as a side to the steak. Nice staff. 2 of them... More

We had dinner here on our last night and it was a short stroll from The Verge Aparthotel where we were staying. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was great. The prices were reasonable for the quality of the food and the wine menu had a good selection at varying prices. The service was friendly and professional and the... More

Restaurant popular with locals and tourists. Good value set menu and excellent a la carte. One of us had set, one a la carte. Need to book. I also popped in on day before to double check as booked from UK.

Lovely small savoury menu and I ordered KingKlip. After some time the waitress came back - no kingklip. Lovely small dessert menu and I ordered a Brownie. After some time the waitress came back - no brownie. For such a small menu I would have expected to have been informed beforehand what was not available. Lovely food though, just disappointed...

This is an update of my previous review. We have been regulars at La Boheme since 2014. Back then I would have given them 5 stars. By last year my opinion had dropped to 4 stars and now they merit 3. Why? The menu has become predictable, the service lacks enthusiasm, the food is decent whereas it used to be... More

It takes more than the food to make a dining experience one to remember. And that was why we left rather deflated - having experienced a constant stream of warm, engaging and prompt service everywhere else over our two previous Cape Town days. For sure, the food was nice, though not top of the tree for value. But the service... More

We've been going to la Boheme for years and used to rave about its great food, lively atmosphere and reasonable prices, and take all our friends there. But it seems they've become a victim of their own early success: The starters mostly haven't changed in years and new additions, e.g tomato soup?!, are pretty shoddy, certainly not eclectic bistro fare....
