The experience from the greeting to the service was amazing, it was good to see the chef / management around overseeing the restaurant. The food was fantastic if you are in Cape Town you must come and try this fantastic restaurant.Special mention goes to Zintle...service with a smile.More

Great food but some of the staff could do with some additional training. Generally a nice experience though with interesting menu and good wine selection.

This is a nice restaurant at Sea Point where we were staying 2nd week of our holiday.We had Tapas,myself,Squid,Octopus and an Oxtail dish.The first 2 were good but the oxtail dish was all mushrooms and very little oxtail in fact nearly none,should probably been offered...an alternative if they didn’t have any.My wife had tacos,pulled duck and Tuna Cervich I believe,these were all very nice,we had a couple of lovely frozen cocktails late on and enjoyed the evening.More

Stunning dinner in Sea Point. The service was great and the food was incredible. They have a set menu which is good value. I would highly recommend this restaurant. You can sit and people watch from the front of the restaurant.

La Boheme Wine Bar & Bistro is near our hotel in Sea Point, South Africa. The tapas listed on the menu sounded so tasty we had to go try them. We ordered 3 different tapas each. All of them were so delicious. The mix of...very fresh ingredients and delicate seasonings made for outrageously good eating. Enough so that we went back the next day for more. Not only is the food wonderful, but the staff is so attentive, helpful, and nice. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting and talking with Viatah and Brenda. La Boheme has good food, good wine and good people. You will love it too.More

Most important - there are gluten free options marked in the menu! We had wine, 3 tapas and dessert and it was all great. The service is excellent, the music is fun and we had a great night :)

We had seats outside on a covered verandah, where a guitarist was playing to create a pleasant atmosphere. We started with some excellent well-shucked oysters then 3 tapas dishes in a 3 for R250 offer - all the components were fresh and tasty. Service was...prompt and friendly even though the place was busy - we’ll be back!More

Lovely setting, restaurant was busy which is always a good sign. Food was lovely! Great vibe and atmosphere. Sadly the service was very slow and even tables who ordered after us were served their food first. Would visit again, trust it was down to a...busy night and they perhaps forgot our order…!More

Had their tapas menu ( choice of 3 tapas for 250R). Menu was excellent. Definitely try the seared tuna, octopus, … Staff is friendly. Their sister restaurant Gambas bistro nextdoor is a good alternative in case La Boheme should be closed.
