Consistent quality served with flair

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.

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.

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....

Stopped in for a late dinner and was pleased with the options. I ended up with a variety of tasty tapas (which is a great way to sample the chefs skills and an even better way to please your taste buds). My waitress was knowledgable and exceedingly friendly. If wine isn't your thing the pub next door is owned by... More

Hi, I had dinner here by myself as a solo female on a Monday night. They seated me at the empty, far end of the restaurant. As a result, me and a solo male diner sitting at the table beside me became the focus of gossip and intrigue. I kind of just wanted to be left alone. Staff were attentive... More

Recommended and booked by Blackheath Lodge we walked down to this restaurant and enjoyed a lovely meal. Really good staff who are always on hand without being intrusive. The food was excellent and good value for money.

I don't remember exactly when La Boheme opened but I remember going once with my family and asking them if we could come back every week.The restaurant is always packed and making a reservation beforehand is probably beneficial as it would ensure an inside table. My absolute favourite meal is the beef fillet with risotto. Over the years the portion... More
