During the silly season, Cape Town eateries are always full and do not disappoint in consistently providing poor service. Imagine my surprise when we stumbled upon this gem in the heart of Sea Point. La Boheme is situated in a vibey part of town and is decorated with detail as only Capetonians know how. The menu offers a variety of... More

I've dined here many times and have always had a great dining experience. The restaurant boasts a great value 3 course set menu for next to nothing, with many wonderful options that change daily. On top of this diners can opt for an a la carte menu which is also superb. The waiting staff are always friendly and accommodating, sometimes... More

Great lively atmosphere and good food at reasonable prices for a nice bistro. Celebrated my (BIG) birthday there with flair.

Excellent wine bar, excellent food. Not expensive at all. You have a 3 course menu that is good value for money.

This restaurant was a great recommendation we had received. We sat outside which was great for watching the world go by. The meal was excellent value - 3 course meal for 145 rand (£9). The quality of the food was very good. The restaurant takes reservations as well as walkins later. If you cannot get a reservation, I would suggest... More

Went there as this restaurant was suggested by the concierge of the Glenn, but I am somewhat opposed to their good rating. Food was ok but the fish was no match at all for the one I ate at the Codfish the previous night. In my opinion it was not even as fresh at it should have been for a... More

With so many excellent dinining options in Sea Point, we found this place to be pretty average. Service was slowish, food was oklay, ambiance forgetable. The food tasted either pale or cooked with too much garlic. Neither bad nor good. It's not that I would avoid this place, however, there are just so many better options!

La Boheme has pretty much become our restaurant of choice in Cape Town. You will have to look far to find a restaurant that has the combination of such an excellent and interesting menu, well-prepared and beautifully presented meals, a very good wine list, great ambiance, good service and very good value for money. The menus are innovative and blackboards... More
