Bottega is still after so many years one of my favorite Parkhurst venues, they make great food every time, the service is good and selection of wine is just as good. Great place for any occasion, birthdays, girls nite out, romantic dinners and more. They still make some of the best lamb cutlets in town. It gets busy so book... More

After considering Bottega as great little gem from previous visits, I was taken aback by the repulsive treatment we received on our visit in the week of 5 May. Firstly, we booked a table but on arrival, it seems it had escaped someone to actually reserve a table - so we were put in a corner along with the oysters.... More

I have come here for both brunch and dinner and had good experiences. The food has been good, although you sometimes feel a little forgotten in the deck area outside, especially when food can sometimes be a little slow. When service was poor (spilt soup on a customer jacket) they did make an effort to rectify the problem.

After an amazing night out at Bistro Vine we felt inclined to make the trek back to Parkhurst to try their neighbour , Bottega. While the prices are the same , the service is cool , as if one is being tolerated , despite buying 3 courses and a bottle of MCC .. It was like being in Cape Town... More

This restaurant took over the space left over by the excellent and sadly missing Attic. It doesn't come close to the attic for food or atmosphere, but it was still a decent restaurant. Our wine was a good vintage and went nicely with our meal. My Kudu in a red wine reduction sauce was pretty tasty, a little bit blunt,... More

We knew on reserving that the place was busy but managed to get our order in long before the group arrived. Ordered a caprese salad and it came with avo, peppadews and olives???When the mains arrived the order was wrong and the food was cold. (No excuse, ever, for cold food). The steaks were tough and overall an expensive and... More

Overall, the food was very dissapointing. Everything, from the duck to the pasta, was drenched in very rich sauces which did not allow the flavours of the food to come out. The service was okay and so was the wine list but I would still not recommend this place. Rather stay away if you're looking for something special.

Nice venue, cafe feel, nice atmosphere, but they were running out of menu items by 8.45pm on a saturday night. There is a clipboard choice, so the menu is small. What we had was freshly prepared. So earmark what you want when you arrive..for some reason our order was taken in stages, drinks, the starters and later mains. Service was... More
