There are few restaurants in Szczecin that take your tastebuds on a journey. Bohema is definitely one of them. Described in the 2016 Gault & Millau food guide as International cuisine, I think that’s an understatement. The chef, Luciano Chero, was born in Peru but you can taste a variety of influences in his food, especially Italian and Spanish.
Each week they offer a new seasonal menu that highlights the fresh produce on offer at that time of year. I took advantage of that in the summer by ordering an absolutely delicious salmon soup with a touch of orange and fennel. The flavors were perfectly balanced and made my taste buds dance! Next I ordered another dish with ingredients that I wouldn’t normally think would work together, a steak with fresh cherries and chocolate. After the amazing soup I put my trust in the chef and he didn’t disappoint me! The steak was cooked perfectly, the cherries and chocolate didn’t overpower the dish and the plate looked like a work of art! WOW! Super!!! I was full!!! But I couldn’t resist trying a bite of dessert and a coffee, which were delicious.
The service is very professional and kind. The interior decorations match the name of the restaurant with lots of antiques and knick knacks, like old photos, on the walls to look at. In the warm months you can eat in the garden outside. It’s a very pleasant green area with a place for children to play.
BOTTOM LINE: This is one of the BEST restaurants in Szczecin!
I highly recommend eating here!

One complaint. When I walked down into the restaurant (there are some stairs) the first thing that hit my nostrils was the smell of cigarette smoke. I also noticed it the last time I was there, for Restaurant Week. It has to do with where the employees stand when they smoke. My nose soon adjusted and didn’t smell it anymore. However, when you enter such a nice restaurant you expect to smell some delicious food cooking, not cigarette smoke.
