…………….Today we celebrate 45 years of Valentine days together so we decided we will go to a restaurant that sounds very free spirited as the name says La Bohemia and indeed we found it to be just like we expected it to be! It is a very big place with a massive outdoor area under a blue awning and the inside was just as big and very well decorated in a very free-style with lots of little witch puppets all-over the place, a few nice modern painting on the walls also! It was crowded which means people like it here for one or another reason so we are here to find out! There is a big bar which is in the centre of the restaurant but does not have seating around it all drinks are served at the tables. They also have a fair-size wine cellar right next to the bar. They have three sets of Menus: Tapas, salads & Paella: A set three course menu with 4 starters, 4 mains & 4 desserts to choose from: And an Ala Carte! We settled for the set 3 course meal our starters were a Watermelon with feta & biltong shavings (Mmmm-h! Magical) & Tuna crudo served with beetroot, spring-onion & egg (Very interesting in-deed!) Mains: Roasted Pork belly served with mix of fresh veg: Grilled Rabbit wrapped in Beacon and served with baby roasted potatoes, beetroot & corn (Absolute-lii divine! Mmmmmmmmmmm-h) A must try when here for a meal! Desserts you have a long list to choose from: Ours were the three-o of sorbets. Vanilla, granadilla & strawberry & the delightful Stick-ii toffee-tart with honey-comb & coffee flavoured smooth ice-cream! They offer a good selection of fine wines and we settled for a Merlot, nice smooth on the taste-buds. The staff were very professional & friend-lii and the fact that we got a call from the restaurant to confirm our reservation on the day was an absolute plus and we know that this is a business which means business and is a true-lii professional set-up! The place has a good ambiance and a vibe of its own which gives it character! We had a good meal and a monies-worth visit here and we will be back here in the future for-sure!......................

Even though the place does not look great from the outside; it is surprisingly cosy and friendly on the inside. We had a great time here with great food.

There is a changing menu with a variety of options. Unfortunately not many vegetarian options. Also some more ' special meats' like springbok or kudu. We shared several smaller dishes (kind of like tapas) and shared one dessert.
The Brownie might have been the best I have had in Cape Town. Recommended! (great for sharing).

We go to this restaurant every time we are in Cape Town , and have never been disappointed . The food is consistently good . Service is good and if you have the 2 0r 3 course meal it is very good value. I had the Paella , the best I've had in South Africa .
It is for 2 people only, so you have to have somebody sharing , my wife had Kingklip and she said it was outstanding. We finished with Tiramisu, which was good .
Thank you for making the Paella for me we will be back
