Time Out Says


La Bohème is elaborate, extravagant, entralling – and, on our visit, empty. It’s been more than seven years in the making, and if you’ve been to The Beach in that time, you can’t fail to have notice the gothic-style building (or the sculptures of flamingos, deer et al in the lavish gardens around it).

We visit the beguiling eatery full of excited suspense, and are delighted by the grandiose exterior. Inside, we’re dazzled further by neon lighting and a massive multicoloured chandelier creating a whimsical centrepiece. It’s bizarre – in the most spectacular way.

The menu is delightful reading for meat-lovers. We decide to go for “La Bohème Court of the Kings” – which consists of five (unlimited) cuts of meat, six starters and two sides.The starter highlights are the lamb meatballs and Merguez sausages that swim in thick tomato sauces, full of flavour.

When the meat starts arriving we understand where the menu’s name comes from, as we sit sucking meat off the bone in the manner of Henry VIII. Meat is carved at the table and the feast includes sausages, quail, steak and lamb chops – which are out of this world.

The only thing missing at the regal banquet are the other guests, which, although the food is top, makes the dining experience a little surreal.

The bottom line
A high-end, eerily quiet rotisserie.
