Last night I had supper there with a friend from Sydney, Australia. It was cold outside but we were greeted very warmly even though we we late for our reservation. The food was top notch, I enjoyed my pork belly and my friend said she never tasted such delicious eisbein. Ended off with heavenly creme brulee.

What an absolute gem tucked away in Sea Point. I revisited this restaurant recently and they have made some lovely changes to the restaurants interior and connected the space that used to be separate. It's a lovely sophisticated upgrade and it feels much more in tune with the find food and wine that they have always served. I'm usually a... More

Family who live nearby love the restaurant and a number recommended specific dishes that they really enjoy. The greeting at the door was friendly and the staff were very attentive. The food was good and fairly priced. There is enough choice and a wide wine selection

Situated in Main Road, Sea Point, they specialize in Tapas, but have a well-priced set menu with the option of 3- or 5 courses. Affordable pricing even for locals. Trendy. Book in advance. Staff is well trained, food well prepared and comes quick. One I would definitely try again in Sea Point. Good selection of Capetonians and foreigners.

Great atmosphere! Try the Usana Cabernet if you like cabs. It was delicious. I had the ostrich balls and they were fantastic!

We visited La Boheme last night based on the TripAdvisor rating. We were not disappointed. The 3-course meal off the set menu was delectable and extremely reasonably priced at R150. The waiter was very helpful and allowed us time to chat and digest between courses. At the same time, he was always there when needed. I highly recommend them!

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 wine choice was excellent as it... 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.
