Description: 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.”

a real treat, and the dining highlight of our holiday; we had the set lunch menu, which is great value considering the uniformly excellent quality of the food. Service was excellent, and the setting pleasant. Looking forward to returning sometime to try the 7 course tasting menu!

I thought the amuse bouches were excellent, surprising, and a delicious twist on their original form. The actual courses, however, were uninspired, overly-salted, and a very straightforward and bland delivery. The service was attentive but incredibly undertrained, and the waitress confused most of the items on our plates. At over £100/pp with moderate wine, I would expect more.

We had the lunch menu at the Bohemia and were very pleasantly surprised. The courses are tiny (no surprise there!), but delicious and actually pretty filling. We didn’t have any alcohol so it actually worked out as pretty good value for money too. The ambience is not particularly welcoming as it feels like you are eating in a Novotel lobby,... More

We had a pasta dish each which was very nice. Not sure it should have been virtually cold though? Tasty and reasonably priced, and they had Liberation and Liberation Pale on draught which was nice.

Amazing. This was our 2nd visit to the Club Hotel and Spa, in St Helier Jersey and our 2nd visit to the Bohemia restaurant. Service was faultless and as for the food? It was fab u lous! They offer 6 meals - all of which are a surprise - so, it's a mix and match from their various menus. Not... More

Staying at the Club Hotel we could hardly miss out on this place and the food is interesting and stylish. We fancied a change so had the veggie tasting menu which was, on the whole, excellent. The restaurant its self is a little lacking in style and atmosphere to be honest and when we return to Jersey it would be... More

For a michelin starred restaurant you expect to receive first class food and first class service. The food was excellent so if you're visiting purely for just a gastronomic experienence and you dont care about the environment then go for it. Tables are set far too close, we had to ask to move table as we were not enjoying the... More
