Outstanding if they still have your choice left !

I went to this place twice and was a tale of 2 different experience's. The 1st time was the best dining whilst in South Africa. Wonderful attentive and friendly staff. The special menu is both great value and varied. The food was cooked to perfection and wine lovely. The whole atmosphere was... read more

This is a very pleasant small restaurant, with tables inside and outside. In cooler weather, there is both an enclosed area and an outside area with space heaters. The food was good, the service was very good, but our problem was the tapas. We had booked this restaurant because we did not want a full meal, and the tapas idea... More

The best eating experience we had in Cape Town, fantastic food, atmosphere and surprisingly good prices (we are from Europe). Atmospherewise is a bit of a lively bistro scene - noisy background, always moving - we loved it. Strongly advised to book a table, usually it is full - at least it was during the weekend. Go for the menu... More

Last night was, terrible table ;despite booking day ahead), average food, but the most annoying and disappointing thing was the total lack of service ... Please remind the waitering staff that money doesn't grow on trees and that when you go out to dinner it actually isn't cheap, and that service is part of the bill, not just the food.

This divine bistro continuous to serve excellent dishes along with outstanding wines. We love the menu where one can select two dishes at a fixed price – it is stylishly presented and always flavoursome. Service is good. Ideal for dinner with friends.

Really enjoy going to La Boheme as we have never had a bad meal or service in all the times we have been there.

Since enlarging this restaurant about a year ago, the strangest thing is that it is still crowded and the tables are too small and too close to each other. Eavesdropping is inevitable. The food is reliable bistro. Not overly a la haute presentation but rather nicely simple plates. Very tasty. My pork belly main was delicious and plentiful, the jus... More

A favorite amongst the locals, the chalkboard menu is small and yet a difficult choice as all the dishes sound amazing...... The two course menu is a mere R120.00 and really good food. Worth a visit....
