Sharp practices take the edge off an average meal.

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... read 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

We stayed for four nights at the Radisson and dined for the first night in Botanica. Our dinner was OK but we could not help but think that things could have been much improved if the hotel were better organised to handle the larger number of bookings caused by the arrival of coach parties. The food we selected was well... More

We ate lunch at lobby bar and later in the bar. To our disappointment the lunch menu was the same as the dinner with limited choices and way overpriced. Food was average and we were left unsatisfied.
