I had dinner with starters, mains and dessert of course. We sat outside in the enclosed area which was a bit quieter than the inside of the restaurant and it was enclosed and loaded with heaters so it was warm. The service was excellent and efficient and the staff constantly scanned the tables and were there on demand. We had the terrine and carpaccio starters that were really good but the main with the fillet with mushroom, risotto and balsamic reduction was what we will return for. We had the tiramisu and brand butter pudding for dessert and the latter was the gem. Strangely enough for the quality of the meal the service and the experience the price was very reasonable. In a city where a meal can be quite pricey this was a refreshing change. As a Gautenger living in Johannesburg this restaurant is now my Cape Town favourite.

Wide selection of wine with a seasonal menu that leaves little (if anything) to be desired for! At R135 you can enjoy a 3 course meal or for R110 (~$11) you can enjoy a 2 course meal.
We had the sesame fish cakes and pork belly main -both were delicious! Highly recommend this place.

Had dinner tonight at La Boheme. The food was great, especially for the value. For 110 rand, you get a starter and a meal. I had the French onion soup, which had amazing flavor and the ostrich meatballs, again very delicious. My husband had the duck wontons and the beef stew (called something else can't recall). Everything was good and service was very attentive. The quality of food for the price was outstanding. I believe we left paying $45 USD and we had two starters, two mains, a bottle of local Sauvignon blanc wine and two glasses of port. Can't go wrong.

The menu is astounding, the staff are professional and attentive, and the ambience is delightful! The staff managed to fit us in on a Friday night without a reservation too, so extra kudos for that!
