This eatery offers a fabulous taster menu in a purpose-built private dining and wine room, perfect for group of up to eight.
Cafe Boheme is on Aberdeen’s Windmill Brae, a quaint, cobbled street that was the site of a 17th Century windmill and just steps from the main shopping areas and bus and rail terminals.
First impressions Step into this traditional French restaurant and you are transported to Paris.
Impeccable. We had booked ahead for a pre-theatre dinner and needed swift service to make the show. We arrived on a blustery and rainy evening to a warm welcome and a fireside table. Our order was taken quickly and our waiter ensured we had plenty of time to walk to the theatre nearby.
The Cafe Boheme dining experience smacks of the Auld Alliance – a celebration of French and Scottish gastromy using traditional and modern techniques. There are plenty of vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options too.
Divine, with dishes from the A La Carte menu. My guest opened with pan-fried halibut, potato risotto, apple and kale, while I selected Roquefort crème brûlée topped with an almond and walnut crumb and lemon and shallot – flavoursome and deliciously textured. For the main event my companion could not resist the pan roast beef fillet with a black pudding dauphinoise, beef dripping carrot and bourguignon jus.
I went for the smoked belly pork apricot and prune fillet roulade with creamed savoy cabbage and new potato fondant. Both were tender, succulent and bursting with flavour. The finale for us both was the tonka bean rice pudding with roast plums and sugar almonds – so delicious we almost called for an encore.
Cafe Boheme’s atmospher is a la Francais, right down to the music.
Just over £123 but what you’d expect for a star turn.
