Gorgeous surroundings and friendly staff. However, in my opinion, food is substandard. Menu is a standard bar offering but the quality is very bad. Ordering nachos which were very bland to say the least with lumps of mince in the beef chilli, chicken wings that are borderline and a burger that was just tasteless I would not recommend this bar...

We where seated at a lovely table which was well dressed and had buckets of fresh homemade bread to offer while browsing over the menu in which there was just the perfect amount of starters and mains...

Ate at the Botanica restaurant in the Radisson Hotel as we were passing through Cavan. At €37 for two courses plus tea/coffee not cheap, but not break the bank either. For that price a restaurant quality meal is expected. In some respects it delivered - a decent room, lovely waitress, safe edible food ... However: My starter of crab and... More

I had lunch in the Botanica bar and dinner in the Wine Goose Cellar Bar (same menu) during my stay at Farnham Estate. The food is good quality and good value, but very standard, just the selection you would expect from a bar.

I love good food and clever cooking. But I'm afraid to say that while Botanica promises a lot, it fails to deliver. The last several visits I had to the restaurant left me sadly underwhelmed. It's trying too hard and sacrificing flavour in the process. For cooking on such a large scale I think the restaurant should simplify things a... More

I tried this restaurant and I can definitely say the food they propose is excellent. It is a cosy atmosphere and the staff is really nice. I recommend this restaurant.

We were staying in the hotel for 3 nights and only went to the restaurant on our last night. This proved to be a mistake, had we gone on our first night we would have gone back again. The staff were very helpful and would ask if you would like any more which is not always the case in likewise... More
