Great ambience and service, and seriously good food for an affordable price. I've been back more than once, and I have to say my favourite dish is the pork belly, and every single dessert is absolutely delicious. I also love that they have such a large selection of wines available. Definitely one of my favourite restaurants in Cape Town!

Excellent service. The guys were very welcoming and did their best to accommodate us even though they were very busy. The waiter even managed a personalized vegetarian dish! The pasta was slightly overlooked though, but the risotto was good.

La Boheme is a wonderful dining experience at below average prices. The service ( thank you, Dorothy), was great and the menu had a range of delicious options. I enjoyed the duck which was cooked to perfection and served with delicious vegetables. The restaurant has a great vibe and is well supported by the locals. Be sure to book a... More

I have been going to La Boheme since it started & am always impressed by the quality of the food, the competent staff, the good wines, the selection of dishes & the incredibly good value! They have kept their 2 course menu @ R110 (3 courses @ R135) for years now, when the rest of Cape Town keep on putting... More

I had dinner with starters, mains and dessert of course. We sat outside in the enclosed area which was a bit quieter than the inside of the restaurant and it was enclosed and loaded with heaters so it was warm. The service was excellent and efficient and the staff constantly scanned the tables and were there on demand. We had... More

Wide selection of wine with a seasonal menu that leaves little (if anything) to be desired for! At R135 you can enjoy a 3 course meal or for R110 (~$11) you can enjoy a 2 course meal. We had the sesame fish cakes and pork belly main -both were delicious! Highly recommend this place.
