“Top Notch Grub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

This was my second visit to The Bothy and it was just as great as the first. The food was cooked perfectly and presented beautifully. The pricing is very reasonable and competitive and the staff super friendly and attentive. We were in quite a large group and I noticed there were a few larger groups also but the service and food was fast and efficient despite how busy they were. I will definitely be returning!

I have had a few lunches in the Bothy and have enjoyed them all. Their eggs benedict is wonderful. They change the menu regularly so you will not get bored by the choices

“Great small restaurant in the centre of town.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

The Bothy is a great place to go for lunch or dinner if you are in the centre of Perth and looking for a bite to eat. It has its on unique character with quotes on blackboards and the whole interior decor is something different to what you would get in a normal restaurant.

The Bothy has a great lunch menu that offers you a deal of soup and a sandwich or hand cut chips and a sandwich, and is fantastic value for money. As well as having a specific lunch menu you also have the choice of the full menu which also has some fantastic dishes. In the evening there is 2 menus again (one is the main menu and the other is a set menu for Pre Theatre) and again there are some lovely dishes on both menus.

One thing to watch for at lunch is that it can be very busy and hard to get a table around the peak lunch hours, so either get there early or try a later lunch. Which on my last visit my girlfriend and I decided that this would be a better option and the service seemed to be lacking. I must compliment how friendly and helpful the staff are but just this one time it just seemed to take time to take our orders for drinks & mains...but like I have already said this was just one time and wouldn't put me off the place as I personally really like it! (also I work as a waiter so i could just be me being over critical)

Hopefully i'll get to go back soon
