We were having a lovely afternoon in kings park-visiting from Victoria and enjoying WA's beautiful weather. Decision to eat in opportunistic Botanical cafe source of great disappointment - only good thing was the view/location. Very rude woman taking my order - felt she needed to continue her conversation that I was obviously interrupting. Coffee (cappuccino) spilt in saucer on way... More

I've eaten here before and it's a fair average restaurant. I was moved to write a review because on my recent visit for just a coffee, I was given what in my opinion is the worst coffee I've ever had. The order was wrongly filled on first go but cheerfully replaced. Despite specifying a long macchiato that was NOT topped... More

However as soon as you reach the counter you'll be disappointed! the service is beyond terrible! we went there at night after a walk in Kings Park looking for a good meal but when we got to the counter the manager who was at the till...

The view and location of the cafe are second to none but the food left a lot to be desired. We were there for a breakfast meeting with a small group. I had the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. The salmon was plentiful but that was the only positive about the dish. The eggs were as dry and overcooked as... More

Location is stunning. Atmosphere is great - alfresco with a nice breeze for breakfast. Sadly, the counter staff were totally indifferent -even eating & drinking their coffee while taking orders. Most looked like they didn't want to be there. Maybe that's the attitude where repeat tourist business doesn't matter. You can watch the chefs preparing the food. Again, with hands... More

Only been here a couple of times after walking around the park and needing a drink. Both times the staff were attentive and pleasant, but cannot judge the food.

Our family needed a drink after visiting the Botanic Garden and wanted a few beers before heading off into Northbridge for dinner. We were told that because it was after 5pm, we could only have drinks if we also ordered food, so we ordered one portion of fries and a round of drinks for 6 people to comply with their... More

We had burgers which were excellent and calamari which was also good. Very busy but staff are not attentive....the chef caught our eye and sent staff over. He came over to apologise that the girls were not watching their customers. Great location

We visited around lunch time, there were five of us and we were trying to choose between the two food choices available in this area. My family chose Botanical Cafe as it seemed clean and the seating looked nicer and the other area was more of a takeaway type food. We sat at a table outside as all the ones... More

My wife and I had a mixed experience here which perhaps leaves me wondering? Lunch was a simple ice-cream in a cone with no problems - but it's hard to get that wrong!! Later that same day we returned for dinner and to soak up the scenic vista of Perth at sunset. We sat down awaiting table service which didn't... More
