Bohemia restaurant within the Club Hotel & Spa has been listed as one of the best restaurants in Britain and has received its highest score yet in the Waitrose Good Food Guide 2016.
Bohemia’s increased score of 7 from 6 in the 2015 guide makes it the highest rated Michelin Starred restaurant and the only restaurant in Jersey to be featured in the guide’s Top 50 Restaurants. The list recognises the best talent throughout the country. The top entries and award winners were revealed on 26 August 2015 ahead of the launch of its 65th anniversary issue.
Bohemia has been rated above both three Michelin star restaurants such as The Waterside Inn and Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester. To qualify for a score of 7 in the guide, restaurants must demonstrate a ‘high level of ambition and individuality, attention to the smallest detail, accurate and vibrant dishes.’
Head Chef Steve Smith said: ‘We are absolutely thrilled to have been awarded a score of 7 in the Waitrose Good Food Guide, increasing our score from 2015. It is an absolute honour as the Good Food Guide is one of the most valued in the business, and it makes the award that much more significant when you know it’s come from customer feedback and opinions.’
To qualify for the awards, restaurants need to be independently run and offer regional or local produce. The awards are voted for by the public who submit nominations for their favourite restaurants.
Steve Smith has taken Bohemia to new levels since joining over two years ago. Steve has created a truly outstanding dining experience with his ingredient and flavour driven tasting menus. He has enjoyed a spectacular year with being named Catey Chef of the Year 2014, retaining Bohemia's Michelin Star, being awarded 4AA Rosettes, as well as being listed in The Sunday Times Top 100 Restaurants, with special praise being given to Bohemia’s desserts which were listed ‘6th Best in the UK’.
