“Excellent food, better prices!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Stayed 5 nights at cape, patronised la boheme twice. The food was really awesome - seafood paella, ribeye steak, duck confit are must try! Especially the truffle fries (think it came with the duck confit)!!
Wine pairing gave it a nice finish. Must go if you crave good food in cape! but book early!

“Great Night @ La Boheme”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

La Boheme is in Sea Point, and what a great meal. The ambiance is classy, and the food is great. They had a great selelction of wine, and the set menu was both reasonbly priced, and great food.

“like being at home”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

I'm a frequent traveller to Capetown for work and every time I stay in CapeTown, "La Boheme" is a must to go. I'm living in Italy and, as it's well known, there is no better place where to get good and healthy food than Italy.
I've been in many places in the last 15 years due to my job and, I can assure you all this restaurant is one of the best place ever where to get excellent food and service. My favourite choice is beef fillet with risotto but I've tried almost any other dishes and they're all delicious!!

Don't miss this opportunity !!

“Just the way, all restaurants should be .”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

We were introduced to this establishment about 9 months ago via a friend who lives close to it.
Impressed the first time, have been three times now, last night was one of those spur of the moment things, drove by and noticed there were some tables vacant and immediately grabbed the chance . No reservations, granted it was almost 21.00, but did not get the often snooty remarks from waitrons at many venues, about reservations etc, promptly seated, no fuss.
Wine and drinks on our table within 3 minutes, starters ( brilliant ) within 10 minutes, and the rest followed with flowing rhythm.
Its indeed , good soul food, unpretentious, just like you would get from a family run place somewhere in Southern Europe, with a slight twist.
Service is excellent and the owner is always visible and very much hands on.
GO, as soon as you can get a reservation, or take a chance.!

“Nice evening”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Great service from Jean tonight. Cold evening, but nice next to the heater. Had some good wine and craft beer. Nice selection. Good to see a team function well together on a busy evening. All the waiters were polite and professional.

Would have liked to compliment the manager. But he/she was not around. Don't know where.

Food was good. A little on the safe side. Would have liked some thing a little more adventurous, but for the price it's absolutely value for money and worth every penny.

Will be back again and again.
