Dinner at Boho Marché, Bath

Boho Marché can be found in the Francis Hotel in Queens Square. They opened in 2020 and, serving Mediterranean and Moroccan dishes, Boho Marché brings 'eclectic dining to the Bath food scene'. Their menu is a great mix between Moroccan and some more contemporary dishes. We were kindly invited to try them out earlier this week, and it was so nice to be back indoors for dining! It's been so long.

What we first noticed when we walked in was how nice the interiors were. Once we sat down, we started with two of the champagne cocktails, a French 75 and a Boho Fizz. To be honest, they were okay but too sweet for us. They have a long cocktail menu so we probably should've gone for something else. [£9.50]

Moving onto starters: 

Five pepper squid with ginger dipping sauce 🦑 [£9]

This was nice and crunchy. The pepper added a tingly spiciness but it wasn’t overwhelming. It paired nicely with the ginger sauce which added a bit of a kick & freshness. 

Falafel (homemade falafel served with Muhamarra sauce & smoked hummus) (v) ✨ [£7] 

The falafel themselves were kinda dry, but the hummus was blended with roasted piquillo peppers & walnuts which added a nice twist. 

For our mains, we both decided to go for fish dishes. Our waiter kindly recommended a wine for us based on our mains choices, and went for the Mâcon-Villages Domaine de la Grange Magnien, Louis Jadot. We really enjoyed this wine made from chardonnay grapes. They did a great job choosing one! [£34 for a bottle] 

Poke bowl with salmon (Hawaiian inspired and Morocanised, couscous, edamame beans, avocado, beetroot, pineapple & macadamia nuts) 🐟 [£17] 

This was zesty and had a good balance of sweet, crunchy & fresh ingredients. It was served with couscous instead of rice which was a nice twist on the Hawaiian inspired dish which had been ‘Morocconised’. 

Fillet of hake (served with confit rosemary onion, cannellini beans & ras el hanout roasted tomatoes) 🐟 [£21] 

The fish was nicely cooked and the beans added a zesty, complex creaminess to the dish. 

Sweet potato chips with chorizo 🍠 [£8] 

Smoky, sweet & overall a nice side! 

For desserts, we went for two classics.

Crème brûlée (v) 🍮 [£5] 

This was creamy, sweet and you could see the vanilla beans! It had an amazing crunchy top. 

Sticky toffee pudding (v) ✨ [£7] 

This was so delicious with a nice balance of sweetness. 

The interiors were really beautiful and the food has Moroccan and Mediterranean influences. Overall, we enjoyed this visit, however we would say to stay clear of the burgers which we had on a previous visit and were disappointed with. 

Staff were very knowledgeable and happy to discuss wine pairings etc. It’s great for date night but we also saw some families & it’s also open for breakfast & brunch! You can book here 👈🏼.
