When I finally did decide to go in a couple of weeks ago, lured by a new menu defiantly retro in its simplicity and remarkably kind in its pricing, it quickly became apparent why Café Boheme has remained so popular and for so long…

My verdict is: if you’re hungry while people-watching, want to eat among a hip ‘n’ happening, dynamic and above all, not stuffy crowd (…) – then eat here. If you want delicious, exciting French food – don’t…

The atmosphere is good, the service fine, but ultimately this is very simple food at a price that means you could have something a lot more ambitious, even in this area, for the money…

My coq au vin consisted of, I swear, at least half a chicken, or perhaps cockerel; leg, breast, wing – as I rummaged downwards in the bowl I was convinced I’d eventually hit beak and claws. But the balance of flavours was good…

Oh, sure, it’s not groundbreaking but it’s a bustling, good-looking restaurant, full of well-dressed, happy, interesting people eating the kind of reasonably priced food almost everyone likes to eat. And it’s well cooked and presented by friendly, accommodating staff…
