SquareMeal Review of Bohemia Jersey

Silver Award

Noted for its swish boutique opulence, the trendsetting Club Hotel & Spa sits well in St Helier’s fashionably moneyed financial quarter – although cool elegance prevails in the flagship Bohemia restaurant. But don’t be fooled by the dining room’s wood panelling, leather chairs or muted brown and grey furnishings, because there’s nothing subdued about Steve Smith’s Michelin-starred cooking. A bewildering array of menus is offered, although the ‘surprise’ and ‘prestige’ options provide the most comprehensive demonstrations of the chef’s talents. From the first taste of ‘shrimps, pistachio and brown butter’ to the last mouthful of ‘spiced apple and blackberry’, it’s a roller-coaster of intricate flavours and contrasting textures. Along the way, you might sample the following: oyster cassonade with cucumber and yuzu; turbot with Cevennes onion, smoked eel, rock samphire and mustard; belted Galloway sirloin with broccoli, English wasabi and oxtail on toast. Meanwhile, the carte offers some more approachable ideas including lamb loin and braised neck with Jerusalem artichoke and goats’ cheese. The food is matched by an impressive international wine list, with France in pole position.

Exquisite, exemplary, fine dining of the first order

A thoroughly excellent experience.  We opted for the 6 course 'surprise menu at £85 per head as we feared the full tasting experience would be too much. Overall we feel this restaurant deserves 2 Michelin stars. 

The ambience was a bit different to other Michelin restaurants we've been at. There was quite a funky soundtrack in the background, and a lively decor with a wonderful chandelier made out of wine glasses. 

Service from the off was professional, discreet, and welcoming. The only negative we could offer is that they did not come to remove breadcrumbs from the table between courses.  

We opted for the  matched wines which was an excellent choice. Every glass was superb, and the measures were generous not parsimonious as we have experienced at some other Michelin starred restaurants (notably L'Enclume).

The amouse-bouches of a choux pastry bun filled with Brie and topped with black truffle was AMAZING. The beef tartare in a crisp cracker was good.  The tomato salad with respectively booster or whipped cream cheese were lovely. Better still - and the standout course for both of us - was the white crab on a pannacotta of brown crab; and the beetroot, hibiscous and goat cheese tart.   

The main course of BBQ and roasted saddle of lamb was lovely with a courgette flower stuffed with neck of lamb. The accompanying sauces of red pepper and harissa was quite sharp; the courgette and basil less so.

The "ice-cream" parlour was a witty ice-cream cart with three mini cones containing a variety of unusual flavours, culminating in the Jersey brown butter version which was sublime.

The second 'stand out' course of the evening was the Mojito Dome, which was an incredible concoction of tart, zesty, interesting and challenging flavours. My partner who avowedly dislikes desserts proclaimed this the best dessert she had ever had. 

Our overall view was this restaurant deserves 2 Michelin stars. Service was excellent, although there was still room for a little improvement. The tasting menu and matching wines worked extremely well and there was not a hint of disappointment over the matched wines.

Vibe 9/10 (we are not really fans of background Muzak, even if it is funky)

Cooking 9/5/10

Service 8.5/10

Would we go back? In a heartbeat.

My food at Bohemia was absolutely sensational. As a vegetarian I have never experienced such thought go into the flavours of each course. The presentation of the dishes was so impressive that diners had their cameras out to take photos – definitely worthy of 2 Michelin stars. The restaurant and bar were both busy, but the service was attentive and friendly. Great ambience and vibe throughout meant that 3 hours passed without us even realising as we were so absorbed in each course.
