This is an update of my previous review. We have been regulars at La Boheme since 2014. Back then I would have given them 5 stars. By last year my opinion had dropped to 4 stars and now they merit 3. Why? The menu has become predictable, the service lacks enthusiasm, the food is decent whereas it used to be... More

It takes more than the food to make a dining experience one to remember. And that was why we left rather deflated - having experienced a constant stream of warm, engaging and prompt service everywhere else over our two previous Cape Town days. For sure, the food was nice, though not top of the tree for value. But the service... More

We've been going to la Boheme for years and used to rave about its great food, lively atmosphere and reasonable prices, and take all our friends there. But it seems they've become a victim of their own early success: The starters mostly haven't changed in years and new additions, e.g tomato soup?!, are pretty shoddy, certainly not eclectic bistro fare....

Well situated restaurant with excellent food and very helpful staff. Little bit crowded. We arrived without reservation and still we found a good table outside. Generous portions priced accordingly. We would like to come again.

We had a fantastic dinner tonite! The filet/mushroom risotto, and the springbok w/ lentils were so tender, and portions so generous! Angie, our server, was very attentive and professional. The evening was perfec, and prices were very reasonable!

Great atmosphere, staff, service and value for money. Discovered this place thanks to Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. This was a short walk from our hotel in Sea Point and we had a lovely evening. Well worth a visit.

Great food, lovely ambience and a good service. Busy restaurant, not for children. Diverse, interesting, menu updated regularly, definitely would recommend this one!

This fantastic bistro in Sea Pointe is on the main road but has a nice walled outside seating area and a cosy interior. The wines offered were local and Italian and the food was fresh and inspired. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the host was rather crabby.

Thank sara m
