Description: Steve Smith at Bohemia receives rave review from one of the world’s top...
Steve Smith at Bohemia receives rave review from one of the world’s top food critics July 2013Steve Smith and his team at Bohemia are over the moon as the Michelin-starred restaurant has been scored 16/20 by food critic Andy Hayler on his acclaimed food review website andyhayler com Bohemia is one of only 20 restaurants in the UK in the last year to be awarded such a high score beating several 2 Michelin star restaurants like Joel Rubicon and Michael Wignall at the Latymer.Andy Hayler is one of the world’s most respected food critics and the only man to have eaten in all three Michelin star restaurants across the globe in just one year.Interestingly Hayler is also one of only a handful of critics who never accepts a free meal, always covering the cost of his meal, he ensures that his reports are fully subjective.When at Bohemia Andy Hayler opted for Steve Smith’s pescatarian tasting menu, though he swapped one course in order to try some meat as well. His review describes each dish in detail commenting, “Lobster with pea purée was served with pistachios and smoked butter foam. This was a very good dish, the local lobster tender and the pistachios adding a useful texture contrast.” And; “I had chicken with girolles, pea purée, sugar snap peas, mushroom purée and a Madeira sauce. The chicken, unlike so many served on restaurant tables in Britain, had good flavour, the sauce lifted the dish and the pea purée was also good; seasoning was very accurate, as it was throughout this meal.”He summarises the experience by saying, “This was an excellent meal.”Commenting on the review Bohemia Head Chef Steve Smith said, “I am absolutely thrilled that Bohemia has been rated so highly by such an acclaimed food critic as Andy Hayler. It is pleasing to know that our ethos of looking after our guests, offering quality and value for money; and on a technical level focusing on precision, balance and depth of flavour is recognized as the key to an outstanding dining experience.”In recent years Jersey has struggled to gain the attention and recognition afforded to other destinations by leading food critics. However it seems that the tide has now turned and not only are critics visiting the Island but its superior establishments are making an indelible mark as demonstrated by this latest achievement for Bohemia.Lawrence Huggler owner of Bohemia added, “To see the fantastic feedback Steve Smith and Bohemia has had from both locals and visitors to Jersey has been amazing and to then get a review from not just a world leading food critic but one whose reviews I personally respect so much is particularly special. Steve’s team in the kitchen and Dimitri’s front of house team have really raised the bar in Jersey and it is great to positive recognition of this.”

After initially reading the menu for the teas, it was quite difficult to figure out what type of tea it was from the description. But the waiter kindly brought over a sample of all the teas for us to smell and asked us what we would like and suggested a tea for all of us which was nice. The... read more

Stayed in the hotel for a few days and booked dinner for the Saturday evening. We had one of the tasting menus with a wine of our choice. The presentation was faultless, as was the service. I found some of the plates a little disappointing eg the scallop was way overcooked! The creamed foie gras was too large a portion,... More

We have had some very good lunches at Bohemia but after a disastrous tasting menu evening last year decided to give it one final go. We arrived last night and the bar was bustling so it was difficult getting a table for a pre-dinner drink. After ordering a bottle of champagne we waited endlessly for it to arrive and the... More

The place for exquisite dining in St. Helier's. The chef combines the savours of the dishes adeptly with the different wine served with each dish. A memorable highlight of one's stay in Jersey, and one of the most pleasant dining evenings I can recall in recent years.

There was no A La Carte. So you pay for what they decide to give you and not what you want. Service excellent but found it hard to understand the waiters description of the food. Preferred Ormer

Visited to celebrate birthdays,Christmas and a promotion. It wasn't a meal it was an experience. Spent 3 fabulous hours drooling over the fantastically creative and delicious tasting menu. The staff were so welcoming and helpful. Still dreaming about the food.
