Excellent food, coffee and desserts, very kind and friendly service, cosy place for really reasonable prices.

The location of the restaurant is in the centrum with a nice garden. The waitresses are very nice, friendly and welcoming you with a smile. The coffee was great. The orange juice was warm and definitely it was not 200ml as stated in the menu....Taken into account the prices of oranges in Slovakia, the price for the orange juice was way too high. Fortunately the ice was available. I was very disappointed with the eggs Benedict. The yolk was nearly well done and the rest undercooked. It should be vise versa. The bread on which the eggs were sitting was too small and the sauce was an overkill. Too much sauce over the whole dish. I am surprised people accepted eggs made that way - mainly in hot summer days. Other dishes (pancakes) at the tables of other guests looked delicious. I hope it was just one bad day for the cook and other days it is as it should be as the place looks lovely.More

I was delighted to have stumbled upon this hidden gem in my hometown! The lads who run the place nailed the nail in its head by bringing something completely new to the table- an unpretentious, simple and good Scandi eatery. Stating it's 'good' is an...understatement as truly, everything is bloody excellent- service is relaxed and knowledgeable, food and drinks brilliant (their poached eggs were simply sublime- spot on!) and vibe just lovely. However, what makes Bottova truly exceptional is the fact that these young minds brought in some simple, but fresh ideas from the West and executed them uber well. Bottova is a breath of fresh air!More

I was pleasantly surprised to stumble upon this unique place. They serve an outstanding coffee, delicious brunch and provide a home-like atmosphere with a very attentive staff. The barista will even happily answer your questions about the coffee, if he has a minute, and recommend...you something interesting. You won't find a place like this anywhere else in Banská Bystrica. Don't hesitate to visit it! I myself must come back there for some gin and tonic.More

Great food, amazing coffee, super nice staff and very special vibe. Classic breakfast meals like avocado toast or omelette are tuned to perfection and you can feel the enthusiasm of the staff and owners in every bite.

If you would like to have a good quality coffee and delicious breakfast in a city center I would definitely recommend you BOTTOVA! The waiters are helpful and always with a smile. It is not just about a dining room there, because you have a...good amount of space between each table so you can enjoy your food in a friendly atmosphere. good vibe & good smell of coffee!More

Brand new place with great breakfast. Had a chat with the founders as they are always at the cafe making sure everything runs well. One of them is a coffee bean whole-seller and you can feel that the coffee is top notch. Breakfast was very...tasty, as they try to experiment with new flavours. This is probably the only breakfast place in Banska Bystrica that does this. Worth a visit.More
