Modern European
Beautifully arranged over three floors, Bohemia delivers a full breakfast, lunch, traditional afternoon tea and dinner menu available until 9pm daily and 8pm on Saturday and Sunday. Guests can enjoy creations by Bohemia's head chef and his team in a variety of settings including 'the library' balcony where they can relax on leather armchairs, read newspapers, use the free wifi and watch the world go by below in the historic Lanes. Downstairs is the main bar where there is a stylish yet relaxed atmosphere in the rustic surroundings with the famous centre island bar being the main focal point. The bar creates a sociable ambiance where guests and bar staff interact since there is no wall or bar-back dividing them. The talented bar staff are literally on stage. At the front of the venue, guests can also enjoy Bohemia's tantalizing food sitting in the heart of the Lanes where tables and chairs sit on the cobbled streets.

From the mismatched salvaged-from-a-skip ‘quirky’ decor, to the cringe-inducing electro-swing soundtrack, the whole experience was not what I was hoping for. The menu doesn’t know what it’s trying to achieve, the food was super greasy, and the whole restaurant seems like it was dreamt up by some moustached guy in a velvet suit and top hat at a festival. Avoid!

Me and my partner went to Bohemia for an anniversary meal (we had a short break in Brighton) i had my table originally booked for 7.30 but amended to 8pm which was absolutely fine. Missed a call, phoned back the number when I realised and see it was a Brighton area code and it was regarding my table informing us the kitchen closes at 8pm but we are the last booking but it will not effect our meal we can still order, just not to be late. Perfect. That’s fine. We arrived earlier just to be a bit more helpful, roughly about 7.40 to then be told that they didn’t have a lot of options left on the menu and as a vegetarian I was restricted to what I could eat as it was. I was told there was only one veggie option left, which is something I knew I wouldn’t enjoy. I was rather rudely told by the waitress ‘well we did try to call you’... to which I did inform her I did call back and it was actually only to do with confirming my booking, no mention of the fact you didn’t have a lot of options left on your menu otherwise we would have cancelled all together.

So, we left. Had to hunt for another restaurant that wasn’t fully booked and also not so casual that we felt a bit overdressed for the occasion. I didn’t fancy an anniversary meal in a Wagamamas. It’s a shame because the place looked very nice and I had seen good reviews. I won’t be attempting to visit again.

We had breakfast on Saturday which was simply gorgeous! Lovely warm staff and chic surroundings. Loved it! Took friends back for Sunday roast and Oh! Staff absolutely wonderful and lovely setting but the food was BLAND! Tasted like it had been sat for ages and reheated. SO disappointed, otherwise we really wanted to give Bohemia Five Stars!

Food and service was good and although we were 15 minutes late for the table booking, we were accommodated quickly. Only downside is the tables in the doorway (inside) do get the smoke effects from the tables outside.

Terrible customer service - so disappointing.

I booked the roof terrace, I turned up and asked about my booking and was told the roof terrace was shut. I said in response, 'oh no I booked it why was I not told?' and had the worst response from a member of staff. The lady stated 'Well I don't know what you want me to do about it, it's raining so you'd be sat on wet chairs anyway.' So I then asked if we could sit outside the front and her response was 'I guess so'. I was shocked at the service, so we left. I was with my university friends for a meet up we do every year, and many had travelled from all over the UK to come to Brighton, so it was very embarrassing. I've never been to Bohemia before, but I won't be going again.

This was a fantastic place and we were welcomed by a lovely lady (didn't catch her name) and Jess who looked after us really well. We had a birthday cake that they took until we required it, food was exquisite and great value for money. The lady was so bubbly and making us feel happy to stay for as long as we want. Highly reccomend!

Waitress was rude and sarcastic. I’d booked an outside table sat us inside and when I questioned was annoyed and said “sit where you want” menu was very limited and out of a handful of mains 2 were off. I had burger and chips. Bun was massive, meat was ok. Chips nice. My friend ordered fish and chips. Hardly any fish loads of batter. I ordered a peroni, it was delivered totally cloudy, I questioned it and was begrudgingly replaced. No apology just told they’d changed the barrel recently. My mate had a glass of lukewarm rose in a dirty glass. Had to ask for tap water. Very disappointed as last time I ate there was nice. Won’t be back

As soon as I walked in I was made to feel welcome. Both Dexter and the young woman who served the food were friendly and helpful. Please thank them for me. They were attentive but not pushy and when my friend arrived they allowed ample time for us to check the menu and choose our meals.

The food was tasty and well presented. The Belinis were delicious.

Unfortunately we had to leave before the jazz started as my friend was feeling poorly with a bad cough but we will definitely be booking again soon.

`a very enjoyable evening.

We visit Bohemia whenever we are in Brighton and have always been pleased with the quality of the food and friendliness of the staff. Sadly when we visited on the 20th Dec 2018 for an evening meal with friends the main courses were not that good. Two of us ordered lamb shank which was chewy rather than tender and falling off the bone. I'm sure this was just unfortunate one off as the food has always been good on previous visits.

I had lunch with an old friend. The food was straightforward, but very good and very reasonably priced. The service couldn't be faulted; the staff were attentive and accommodating, without being intrusive, and handled dietary requirements without any difficulty. The restaurant itself was comfortable and unpretentious, but quietly efficient. The wine list offered a wide choice of well-selected wines. This is a good restaurant, where you can reliably eat well and in comfort, without having to worry about cost. It was my first visit, but it won't be my last.
