Having been here many times over the years, I must say I'm impressed by how well LA Boheme is holding up - in food quality, prices and service. Staying just around the corner, this has come to be our favorite hang-out - combined with the next door Engruna (same owners). May you be able to keep up this high standard... More

5 years on from our last visit and La Boheme has expanded and now has a bar and casual dining area next door. We arrived early and sampled 3 of the craft beers on tap and things got a bit hazy after that......I'm fairly sure I had pork belly but I'm fairly sure I enjoyed it. Still tremendous value for...

You will not regret dining at La Boheme,the pork belly was very good and was recommended by our waitress(Robyn), the service was great and the tapas are affordable. The tapas are also great for sharing.

When dining at this restaurant we were a large group (23 persons) and absolutely everyone loved their food. Staff could not have been nicer and even provided pizzas from their next door restaurant for the kids. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Try the paella!

I can't believe how good the food was for the price! My partner and I each got the 3 course menu and a bottle of wine for about $20 a person--in the US the same quality of meal would've been $50 a person. We didn't have a reservation, but the staff was accommodating and found us an outside table--it was... More

This was a great discovery. The decor reminds me of a quaint French bistro. The staff are very knowledgeable of the wine and food and very attentive. Their is an extensive wine list with a matching menu. I had the snoek pâté and pork belly which I recommend trying. The set menu is well priced and a good bargain. The... More

La Boheme is always a good bet for dinner in Cape Town. The set menu is great value with enough options to keep anyone happy. I had seared tuna as a starter and it was great. The pepper steak was just delicious. My foreign visitor enjoyed it so much he went back again the next day. Service is great and... More

We loved this restaurant. It has a lot of tapas to share and a 2 course meal menu that had a great selection. Everything we ordered was delicious and cheap sangria ($11 a pitcher). Love it.

We booked weeks ago for 7:30pm, knowing it would be a busy time of year. Visiting family had thoroughly enjoyed a meal at La Boheme on previous occasions. It took longer than usual to place our order, as the waitress was not easily available, and she brought a starter which had been cancelled. We realised half way through the meal... More
