strengthofabear wrote on 21 July 2012We came here for lunch a few weeks ago and I really enjoyed it. We will definitely be back. The spicy peppers were great, really good croquetas and the prawns in tomato sauce are also highly recommended. They've got a real bargain deal on at the moment for lunch but I wanted to try too many of the different dishes so we couldn't use it. Some might call me greedy

Its a bit too upmarket a place to serve a full fried breakfast but that doesn't matter as the open bacon sandwich, the sausage sandwich, and especially the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, are delicious

strengthofabear wrote on 13 June 2012We came here three months or so ago. My wife chose it as somewhere to take my parents. I thought this was a bold decision, as my dad complains about most things and Italian food is his favourite, so taking him to a sub-standard Italian would have been a recipe for disaster. I was more inclined to take him to a place where he would have a less clearly defined frame of reference (Chinese perhaps, or the nearby Tapas place).
However, Enoteca was a huge success. The food was all delicious (especially my rabbit, which I don't have often enough) but the key factor was the service. It was a bit over-attentive for my tastes but that is exactly what my dad wants and I think the staff could tell, especially the wine waiter. Speaking of the wine, this was excellent too, and this was all thanks to the wine waiter as we let him decide what we should have based on our broad preferences and what we were eating.
The price was reasonable considering the quality of the food, wine and service. The atmosphere was perhaps better suited as a place to take your parents rather than a group of younger people (it would be especially badly suited to kids I think).

We had some great curries from Holy Cow in Islington last year so when we moved to Putney we were eager to try the local Holy Cow. However, it has been disappointing and far below the standards of the Islington branch. A lot of the curry dishes (especially the dansak) are far too sweet. The dishes are generally less greasy than the average Indian takeaway, but if the flavours aren’t right its all a bit irrelevant

Excellent breakfast / brunch here. I'd never even heard of it before but then had a full English there yesterday and a cheese tomato and mushroom omelette this morning. The full English was excellent, great bacon sausage and black pudding, a perfectly cooked egg and a little hash brown and a sort of bubble and squeak cake. The only reason I didn't have it again today was I felt a bit guilty about all the pig I'd been eating. Friendly staff as well.

A cool pub. Nice atmosphere inside, although it can get a bit crowded. It has a deceptive amount of space and lots of comfy seats. The outside area is spacious and full of healthy looking plants.
I first came here 3 or so years ago when Putney was Austin and Evil's favourite place, and now I've been a few times recently since Luke moved into the area, and it hasn't really changed. The food looks good but I've never tried it.
They serve Sierra Nevada here which is only the third place I've seen it
