Like a castle inside. Absolutely stunning. My first time this evening visiting LA boheme. The cauliflower soup was so tasty. Haddock special was good (I was taking a chance on it as I never eat haddock so how do I know what to expect) but the pea and mint puree and the little bits on the plate were fantastic too... More

Dear TonyHopkins2014, There is a small step into our main dining room and this is lit with a strip light to warn guests they are stepping down. With each and every guest that we lead into the main dining room, we stand by the step and let them know to mind their step. We feel this is more effective than... More

My fiancée and I eat here this evening, I have to say it was the most beautiful meal we've had in a long time.. service excellent and very attentive. I can not fault the food or the house wine which we thought was great value and true to its taste. Definitely be returning. Fab fab fab.

I had the lamb which came in a surprisingly large portion with delicious spiced veg. The staff were very attentive (and actually French) and the wines we had were very nice from the extensive menu they had on offer. Setting/ambiance was perfect as well. Would recommend to friends.

Lovely little french restaurant. The building itself is stunning, with exposed stone walls. The food is very good but i think it is a touch over-priced to be fair. Other than that, Very nice

I've now been to La Boheme twice and it's been a pleasure both times. The food is on-par with any I've had all over Ireland and one could argue it deserves it's recommendation in the Michelin guide & perhaps even more. The venue itself is full of character and it's a great place to eat. Certainly worth a detour if... More

Bought a voucher for Christmas for my parents but lost the voucher within five days and rang the restaurant on Stephen's Day to cancel the voucher and get another reissued. Had my credit card details as proof of purchase, however the restaurant refused to issue a replacement as they claimed to have no traceability on vouchers. The person I spoke... More

Dear Lyngf, I spoke with you yesterday evening regarding your lost voucher, I was neither condescending or rude, just matter of fact and tried my best to explain our policy. Unfortunately you were not a very willing listener, and had you not hung up on me I would have been able to explain the following: When we issue vouchers, we... More
