I revisited La Boheme last week. We opted for the "early bird" menu at €29 which was very well priced. This time I was among a very large group of friends. The service was excellent and efficient. The menu was varied and the waiter was very knowledgeable as to gluten free options.

Main course were equally great. We had the dessert tasting plate - the highlight of that was the Crème Brûlée - next time I will probably just have... More

Food is as it should be, service is good. Do not go looking for a big feed, go looking for excellent food in French size portions

A family dinner at La Boheme recently delivered once again on food and ambiance. Great buzz in the restaurant which is sub-terrain dining. French style food was excellent and the service matched the meal and surroundings. Not inexpensive but certainly value for money for a special occasion.
