Modern European
Beautifully arranged over three floors, Bohemia delivers food menu available until 9pm each day. The award winning food is prepared fresh and in house, with quality ingredients. 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.

    Hi me and my wife were soooo looking forward to the Brighton Bohemia, we treated our selves to the fillet steak, asked for medium, when they arrived mine was cooked all the way through and tough, my wife who also asked for medium was unable to cut. We reluctantly to the staff who were very apologetic and said they would be replaced. They also gave us the offer of a complimentary drink. So with the excitement rising again our new steaks arrived mine was under cooked this time my wife's was just ok, the blue cheese source for me was nice but my wifes peppercorn source was more like gloop and completely tasteless, although the staff were as helpful as they could be, we did not want to complain again. such a shame, sorry,,,,

    Poor service as they only provided one main dish and had to wait for the other same dish as they mucked up. Didn't enjoy the evening as they ushered us on a table near the front door so didn't see anything of the establishment. Wouldn't visit again.

    Last time we visited was pre covid in 2019!! To the month. We were not disappointed (other than the weather). Staff were lovely, food was lovely. Our only disappointment was the Burrata which was very small for the price… like, verrry small… and looked like a ball of mozzarella that had been cut in half and served rather than a full sized ball of Burrata with a gooey middle (not evident at all which makes me question that it was even Burrata)

    We booked a table at Bohemia last night as we were coming to watch the Shine On band and wanted to be able to eat/drink whilst listening to the band. We ordered a selection of small dishes and a huge shared cheese/cold meats platter. The food was delicious; the service was friendly, attentive and polite; the ambiance was warm and fun. Shine On were superb, brilliant musicians who performed a wide range of well known songs. We’ll definitely be back, especially if Shine On are playing.

    The 3 chicken skewer shared platter seemed quite small to share but it did taste nice. The other 2 dishes from the tapas menu were far better in portions. Our waitress was excellent and the staff very attentive. The highlights of the night were the tiramisu and the live band.

    Location and service was good. Nice drinks but a bit disappointed with the food - especially the burratta starter - although quite tasty - presentation wasn’t great and the portion size felt a bit mean for the price paid. The mushroom lasagne was good and cod was ok. Not sure we’d choose to eat here again.

    Two friends & I went for lunch, we were warmly greeted & shown to our table. The drinks arrived quickly as did the food and that was great. The ambience was good & the toilets clean. We went at the beginning of the week so the place was not too busy. Will definitely go again next time we are in Brighton.

    First time at this venue- ambience was welcoming- we ordered the chicken skewers for starters - although tasty , they did not come with any garnishes so myself and my husband shared these which was rather dry without dips etc. I had roast beef and my husband had the roast pork which were beautifully stacked but came Luke warm, this spoilt the main meal. My husband had the smoking tirmasu which was delicious- I had the sticky toffee with caramel ice cream which was nice. All in all rated 5/10 due to the lack of care and presentation of the meals. I am doubtful if we will return to this restaurant.

    Went for a family birthday, nice venue and seating area upstairs, there were several main courses unavailable which was disappointing and made the menu limited, the waiter was fantastic, and the food we did order was average to good, service was fantastic throughout and had the service not been so good would have scored the venue less stars

    We had a reservation for food and drink here on 3 July 2023. Bohemia promised so much but delivered so little. We arrived to a lovely reserved table by the window at 8:30pm, we ordered wine (a fairly over-priced bottle of Picpoul de Penet for £32 mind you but it we were up for a good night so we didn't mind) and some food. The staff were warm and welcoming and we were definitely enjoying the ambience and the setting until about 30minutes into our evening and the band they had playing that night began to strike up. First of all they were far too loud - we found ourselves shouting over each other just to hear what we were saying (which was mainly how bad the band were). Secondly and further to this point, whatever about the decibel level, the band were really awful. The repertoire they had chosen was modern, well-known pop and rock material but arranged for a type of 1920s, New Orleans style, scratch jazz band which included drums, a banjo, a double bass, singers and an offensive brass instrument - a trombone I think? I couldn't see them where we were seated. The singing was deplorable - desperately out of tune with the harmonies employed best described as loosely approximate. The amplified sound mixture between the instruments was also equally as bad with no sense of balance or natural ensemble. Anyway, it was so bad we cancelled our food order as we couldn't bare to face having our ears assaulted for much longer and left abruptly. It was very disappointing as our initial impression was really good and we were genuinely enjoying ourselves. I'm sure the food would have been great but the live music was just such an atmosphere and ambience killer, we had to cut our visit short. I'm a professional musician myself and my advice would be to hire a music consultant for your Thursday night live music events so you can avoid inadvertently choosing bands/acts that end up putting patrons off like it did with us.

    If not hidden, exactly, in the Lanes, definitely a gem. A large, stylish, unusual bar/restaurant with private areas, an upstairs, a roof terrace, and more. It perhaps comes across more as a bar, but in fact the food is generally very good, with attentive service and an unusual, varied menu. On Sundays, the roasts are excellent, but little known about. Well worth your time, both for a small crowd having a night out, or dinner with a friend or partner.
