The food and ambience was really great. Extensive menu, everything we tried - four of us - was excellent. Real tasty home made food, perfect service, and a warm atmosphere.

Visited here with another couple. It was good value for money with a varied set menu. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty. Staff were friendly and the vibe was good. Only downside was that we were seated and then were asked to move to another table so they could seat a larger party but wasn't a big problem

Wel like to eat at La Bohème. It is a wine bar/bistro in Sea Point with excellent food and a good vibe. The 3 course menu is very good value (190 ZAR I think it is for the menu). The wines are very good too, so is the service.

Oy no. This so isn't my type of place. There were no tables on the patio facing the street so we were placed inside where the ambience was less than perfect. It was almost empty (for a Saturday night!) and the dim lighting gives the place a grubby feel. The postage stamp sized table, also, was unpleasant - it was... More

We stayed locally in Seapoint and came back here for a second time on the strength of our original visit. There was a good 2 or 3 course set price menu and also a tapas menu, both of which were great. There was a broad wine menu and overall we thought it was good quality food and reasonably priced

you re used to overcrowded and noisy restaurants. Food was okay although the presentation is quiet plain. I had ostrich with risotto and mushrooms all mixed together which was not really a classy dish but again taste was okay. Food is very fresh as they offer a limited 2 or 3 course menu for very reasonable budget.
