The first meal at La bohemian was so good we went back two days later. This restaurant was highly recommended by the owner of the Glen hotel where we stayed and he wasn't wrong. The two course menu was great value and the food top notch. The staff were enthusiastic and attentive throughout. The... read more

Continues to be quite fashionable and rather popular. As much as I like the place in a general viby sort of sense, cannot say that I have had a meal there that has had much impression on me, including house speciality paella. Notwithstanding, there are many content diners so it may be a question of preference.

We spent NYE here a few years ago and had a great time. The food and wine were very good and the atmosphere outside on the patio was excellent.

This restaurant seemed to be where the locals go and also tourists. It was a good mix and had a wonderful atmosphere that left one to desire more and stay longer. It... More

The ambiance is great too - in fact make sure you do book ahead so as not to be disappointed. We had the Paella ( a dish made to share) which was tasty and the... More

This was such a pleasant surprise that a person can have friendly and professional service, exquisite food and a wide variety of carefully selected wines at prices that dont break the bank. This is definitely an establishment that prides itself in every aspect of culinary expertise and provided us with an amazing variety of dishes, all of which proved to... More

We had been recommended this restaurant but found it rather disappointing. I ate ostrich meat balls (okay) with pasta (forgettable). Most of the dishes were pretty small in quantity and service was slow. Nothing wrong with the beer though! Slightly dodgy area of town.
