Well I was excited to visit La Boheme following the glowing reviews. Unfortunately I cannot possibly give a similar review. The steak that I plumped for was described as medium/rare, I felt fortunate that it didn't jump off my plate as it had barely experienced the kitchen. Now I like a rare steak but this was a little blue for... More

My girlfriend ordered the beef shin which is a winner, soft and full of flavor. I ordered the Rabbit Ballotine which was unfortunately completely overcooked, so dry i had... More

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.

The ambience is warm and relaxed, with friendly, attentive and knowledgeable waiting staff. The food is interesting and varied, with excellent local produce. You can have tapas, well priced 2 course... More

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. Lots of locals so must be good! In a very safe area, we walked from our hotel (Glen Boutique Hotel). My... More
