We were very lucky they accommodated our large group, as we made the reservation earlier the same day, and on a Saturday to boot! We were absolutely blown away by the plating and quality of the food. You can get a 3 course... More

This was by far our best dining experience in Cape Town. Even on a cool evening, we were fine outdoors (enclosed patio), where the service was excellent and the food delicious. Wine list was excellent and reasonably priced. The opportunity to choose from all items on the 2 or 3 course menu made it easy for us to find great... More

Have to say that after many years of trading on Main Road, Seapoint, La Boheme, continues to maintain very high standards of friendly, very efficient service, delicious fare, a genuinely great night out for a group of friends yet intimate for couples.

We shared the paella and our son had the beef fillet. Both meals were excellent. Lovely ambience, able to sit outside.

We ate here 3 evenings in our 8 night stay in Cape Town - need I say more? Great food, pleasant staff. The kingklip was excellent, as was the springbok and lamb shank. Great prawn and sardine tapas/starters. Very good value

Reasonable menu. Lack of fish, being in coastal town, in my view. Nice tapas choice. Beef was really good, as well as gnocchi. Friendly service, that could improve a bit.
