“Excellent food and wine in Cape Town”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Probably used this place 6 or 7 times during a stay in Cape Town.

Consistent high standard of food from a frequently changing menu. Extensive wine list, and fantastically attentive, knowledgable and friendly staff.

Typical per person cost of three course meal and (lots of !!!) wine was 200-300 rand

“Casual Contemporary in Sea Point”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

My wife and I went based on a recommendation from someone who studied in Cape Town. The menu had good variety of dishes ranging from gnocci to paella the weeknight we went. The place was packed, and we were lucky that there was a available seat outside by a heating lamp. We chose the set 3 course meals which were great value. We were more than stuffed and satisfied when the dinner was done. Plan ahead and book reservations.

“Top Sea Point bistro”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

A lively restaurant which offers a wide selection of food from a variety of blackboard menus - ie tapas, al la carte, and special set menu. The value is excellent, the food well prepared and tasty, and the service attentive. Furthermore, the wine list is varied and affordable. We are locals and La Boheme is fast being added to our list of favourite eateries.

While the restaurant is typically packed in the evenings making bookings essential, lunchtimes are less hectic so walk-ins can be easily accommodated. There is also a special lunch menu.

“A CASUAL OFF STREET EATING EXPERIENCE”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

My son introduced me to La Boheme, I wanted a casual place to eat and what a find La Boheme as, it was early evening so not packed but busy, we sat adjacent to the pavement and that too is fun watching the characters of Sea Point pass you by. Service was excellent and choices available to one satisfied our party of 5 needs. Fun choosing off the menu boards and found pricing to be realistic. All in all a fine evening was had by all and I will certainly be back.
