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.

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.

We reserved for a group at lunchtime. The place is mostly a nighttime destination, so we were wonderfully quiet and well tended to. Comfortable seating. For hungry men, portions a little on the small side.

Having waited an hour for our food, we were informed that the order hadn’t been processed. Given the restaurant was empty it was difficult to understand how this could possibly happen. It’s impossible to score the food as we didn’t get the opportunity to eat. Needless to say we wouldn’t recommend this restaurant.

We visit Brighton one-two times a year and always try and go here.... but this time so disappointing compared to other times, we ordered our meal, starters was ok then we both ordered fillet steak one with bernase sauce and one with peppercorn, looked lovely, I poured the peppercorn sauce on the steak but noticed that the peppercorn sauce was probably on a ratio or 60/40 with the sauce, as much as I like the sauce too many peppercorns will override any other taste... I wasn’t wrong I scraped off the peppercorns, and cut some steak off the smell wasn’t appealing in fact it smelt musky, I tried it and was awful, as did my partner and he said it was inedible the whole steak was ruined, we explained to the waiter he took the sauce to the kitchen, come back and said that’s how it’s meant to be ! So basically because I POURED A SAUCE on my steak it’s my fault ! Not once offered an alternative nor a different steak just tuff really but we still need to pay for it £24 the most expensive thing on the menu, JOKE!! With our meal we were drinking beer, so if we were being offered a complimentary drink surely should have been what we were drinking, oh no we were offered a tea or coffee!! This I thought was an insult only one meal was edible two bites of steak taken and still had to pay £24 it’s a disgrace to say how upset, annoyed and totally disappointed we are is a joke, what’s worst is has spoilt something that we really loved before due to the lack of customer service and basically there if you don’t like it ruff Attitude!!!

Went in the evning for drinks and the cocktails were brilliant, the staff were great, music, lighting, atmosphere, it was all brilliant.

So we decided to go for afternoon tea the next day and sadly a completely different story. The afternoon tea was terrible and the service was no longer there.

A group of 12 of us had dinner at Bohemia one Friday night. The staff were very attentive and helpful - dealing with a rowdy group without any stress. The waiter was brilliant and made the night go very smoothly indeed. The food is good - it's more of a bar with a food menu but I can recommend it for friends who was a fun night out. Very good value!

I went to Bohemia for an evening meal for the 3rd time this weekend (28/5) and it was another good experiences. The decor is interesting and the low level lighting adds to the relaxed ambience. The food was tasty and the portion size was adequate. Wehad the steak which was cooked precisely as requested.
The staff were proffesional friendly and attentive with a special mention reserved for Andrea (From Sicily) our waiter for the evening. He looked after us all night and added to the enjoyment of the evening with a friendly 'nothing is too much trouble' approach to his work as well as lots of local knowledge/useful tips/info on where else to go in Brighton.
I would highly recommend food and drinks for large or small parties.

Great venue. Excellent Food. Fabulous cocktails and incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Arrived an hour earlier than our booking, but were shown to our table with no issues. Wait service were very friendly and patient when we couldn’t decided what we wanted and checked in throughout to make sure we had everything or if we wanted additional drinks. Food and drinks were very good, and for what you got we’re not particularly over priced or exspensive in my book. Venue itself was very cool, our table was a nice cosy corner sofa that looked outside, ideal for a nice meal and catch up with friends. Located right in the middle of the lanes, I would definitely go again, and recommend this venue to any newcomers or visitors to brighton. 👍🏻

Although food was good, we chose to pay extra to have 2 different meats on our plate for our roasts, we ended up with 1 slice of beef and half a chicken breast each! Not enough or don't charge extra money for the option

Interesting venue - good energy, fun decor and lovely staff. I had an amazing cocktail and the fish and chips was very good. We had a great visit but had to leave in a big panic as we had theatre tickets and had lost track of time - this meant cancelling deserts and getting the bill made up in record time - they were extremely nice about it!

Took my girl here on her Birthday, requested a romantic spot for our meal when i made a reservation online and so I was happy when we got a nice little table by the window, a bit quieter than some of the other seating areas. The waiting staff and bar staff were very professional and couldn't be any more helpful.
Great music, great food, great cocktails.

And most importantly my girlfriend had a lovely birthday (:

10/10.

In general a nice experience - Friday night busy with a lot of coming and going for the bar/music.
Food excellent, well served and notable. Table at front of building in bay window, good for watching people but a bit chilly with the door constantly opening and closing. (December)

Drink selection as you would expect and pushed quire hard.

In all a good meal and night out for our group. Good value.

Can't wait to go there again and try some more cocktails!

We had been looking forward to having a bite at this establishment, especially trying out their vegan meal option. However, the experience was a huge let down due to the incredible rude waitress greeting us. I asked about a table outside, as it was a sunny and warm October day. The waitress simply said "yes, you see there are tables but are they free? No! So you can sit here..." and she showed us to a table right by the stairs. Clearly the least attractive table in the restaurant even though the place was empty inside. I asked again about the outdoor garden, which was advertised on their webpage. Again, I got a big sigh and rolling of the eyes from the waitress, which followed by her explaining to me that it's October, obviously it is closed. I could have an other table inside, if the one she had given me was not good enough.... at this point I felt quite unwelcome and my company had all lost their appetite, due to this rude treatment. I felt as if I was not allowed to even ask for the outdoor patio and should just be happy she allowed me to eat there at all. We consequently decided to go to an other restaurant, as there are many in Brighton with waiters who will treat you better.

Myself and a friend booked ahead (using OpenTable) ad inadvertently ended up with what may be the best table for any restaurant in the city.

But we didn’t go for the table, we went for the food and cocktails. And boy were they worth it.

The menu isn’t cheap, but it’s affordable - if you want to get quality and a substantial quantity as well for your money.

The selection of sides, starts, desserts, cocktails and mains were all excellent, with a surprisingly good amount of daily specials as well.

I can’t reccomend the place enough!

Great aesthetics, great music, great ambience, great service.
