First visit to La Boheme for supper and we selected the set meal as the choices seemed interesting and good value. I had the Chicken Parfait and my partner had the Snoek. The parfait was a little bland and there was an unbalance between the parfait and the bread supplied, same for the Snoek. The locally brewed beer was great.... More

I absolutely loved La Boheme! Very knowledgeable waiters, fantastic wine list, the rotating chalk board menu features fresh, seasonal produce. I always find a surprising new dish to try at every visit, and their food is fantastic! Definitely worth a visit while you visit Seapoint beachfront :)

They have a great 2 course or 3 course special. The food is always tasty and satisfying. Good service as well. Recommended for a spontaneous dinner plan!

Love the 2 course pricing! For R110 get a starter and a main. But my Ostrich meatballs were dry and over salted. Starter of butternut ravioli was just average. Great setting, romantic lighting... Great wine list and general vibe! Would go back but order the mushroom and fillet risotto - my friends raved about it!

Prompt service, excellent Menu. Also a Winter special on 2 (R110.00) and 3(R135.00) course meals with choices. Very affordable and also walking distance to our Hotel.

We decided to give this restaurant another try having had a bad meal there about 3 years ago. I can understand why the restaurant was empty. The chair covers were tatty and torn, the table was scratched and they did not even give us placemats with our food Food was tasteless and very salty and single dishes really overpriced and... More

Given the rave reviews, we maybe went there with too high expectations. The ambiance was perfect but the food, wine and service was definitely not the best we had in CT. We had asked for every course to the waiter what the specials of the kitchen was, so we certainly got the best they had to offer but it just... More
