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.

We had a lovely girls lunch here on Friday and the food was fabulous. Well worth a visit.
The cocktails are also great along with the lovely friendly, very personable staff.
Will definitely be returning on my next trip to Brighton

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.

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!

Staff very friendly but appeared to be bored as not enough work to do. I had put a note on the booking request to advise that it was a 30th bday. Disappointed that no effort was made for anything complimentary to mark the occasion. Otherwise the evening was nice.

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. 👍🏻
