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 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

Poor service - kept on having to ask staff for drinks, where food was etc

Not for foodies - school dinner like roast - salad bowl dry and not fresh

Dark and dingy venue

Am sure is fun for a stag do but not for eating out

Lovely restaurant,quirky lamps and even a bicycle on the bar. Food is delicious and plenty of it. Service was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble for our server. Have been a few times times now and recommended to friends who also love it.

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.

We had an evening meal here and also a lunch the following day. Whenever we stay in Brighton this is our restaurant of choice and always recommend it to friends. It's ideally situated for visiting the Lanes for shopping or down to the sea front.

I took my daughter for lunch to celebrate her 18th birthday and we had a great time! The show-stopper cocktails were amazing, the food was delicious and service just right. In fact my husband said that this was the best burger he had ever eaten - and he has had a lot!

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.

It was a 60th birthday celebration. I had I formed the restaurant prior to me arriving. They were stunning with their service and style. We were seated in a discreet area upstairs with a great view of the Lanes. The service was great. Drinks started with champagne for the birthday boy-it was very reasonably priced. The food was amazing, I had the super food salad which I highly recommend.
Dessert was the surprise for the celebration,a sparkler and the floating smoke with the happy birthday chorus.

Food was great and the waitresses were friendly and accommodating however our food took quite along time to arrive. I would recommend it to others as long as you don't have any time constraints that day.

One order was wrong and had to be replaced. The worst aspect was being served 2 sub-standard starters of Tiger Prawns that seemed to be a re-serving of someone else's leftovers. There were empty shells and the prawns were discolored. The management took the cost off the bill and served a portion that was radically different - whole prawns that were fresh. However, it left a bad taste because it seemed like they were trying to fob us off in the beginning and then intended to charge £7.50 per dish. Quality control needs to be addressed.

Really great cocktails and the dark modern decor is right up my alley.

Cocktails are around £8 or £9 but a lot does go into each drink. My favourites were the Hidden Depths and Ginger Spice.

We didn't have any food but I have to put something down to submit this review, so I've given it 4*. If I dine here in the future I'll make sure to provide an updated review.

The decor is outstanding and the service was excellent. They gave my daughter a glass of fizz with her breakfast as it was her birthday. However, the breakfast was very disappointing, rubbery poached eggs with the Eggs Benedict. the muffin had no butter on it so was dry and barely toasted. The full English was more like a half English as it was far from substantial and left my husband needing a further meal and hour later!
