True to bistro style, La Boheme is cosy and welcoming, serving gourmet yet hearty meals at a reasonable price.
Has a nice charm to it and the service is good. My tuna starter was great (as part of the set menu) but the porkbelly main was underwhelming. It was under cooked and stole some of the shine of this rather nice evening.
This used to be the best place in Cape Town, now it's a bit hit and miss. Sometimes you will have an AWESOME. But then literally the next night it will be a waste of time and money - the cheese on your pasta might smell off and/or the meat not cooked according to specifications. Most of the time it's still great though.
I love La Boheme. I can walk there, so often take friends and visitors to Cape Town. The staff are always pleasant and attentive without being OTT. However, I do notice that if Anna or Faizel and not around, the food quality does deteriorate a little. My meal on Tuesday was really not up to their usual standard. I did not complain as had guests with me and didn't want to make a fuss, but my food tasted slightly burnt and overcooked.
This is not their usual offering, so it won't stop me from going back.
Just an observation.
This place looks so unassuming but their food is absolutely amazing. Love the concept of black boards and ever-changing menus. Their food is so unique and well-presented. Make sure you book as this place is always packed!
Overrated and over seasoned cerviche. You can find much better food in this city. Disappointed.
