Excellent food (the best belly pork ever). Great atmosphere. Helpful staff and excellent service. Booking advisable! Although we were there at the beginning of their winter, it was full.

I found this place quite average. It was perfectly nice both in terms of food and vibe, but I didn't think it was as good as some of the recommendations I'd heard. It probably didn't help for me that the vegetarian offering was pretty limited.

We chose this for one night's dinner on holiday because it was recommended in one of the guidebooks, and were so impressed that we went back two nights later.

We just had one of the nicest meals at La Boheme as part of their winter specials menu. The food was great and tasty and the service excellent. Also an affordable wine list available

We stopped by here 1 night and were impressed by the interior. The menu looked great, with a bit of a twist. The food was very tasty and we were pleased with a very good value for money meal.

La Boheme serves tapas and also regular size meals. So no matter how hungry you are, you'll find something to your liking. My duck spring roll starter & pork belly main was really good and the one truffle I had for dessert hit the spot perfectly. Definitely a place to go back again.

If you're in for a formal dinner, this is a good option. Their menu is not very extensive and their service was rather slow but the food and ambience are quite nice! We ordered the ostrich neck tortillinis and the chicken croquettes. Both of these were delicious! We recommend making reservations though as they get quite busy for dinner.

Walking distance from our awesome hotel (The Glen Boutique Hotel) and a delicious meal. It feels like it’s a bit away from town center but the food was delicious, ambience unpretentious (filled with lots of locals on a Friday night), and completely worth it.

Thank ellebelle123
