“A great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

I was in Dublin for the day yesterday and was in a bit of a rush to find something tasty to eat before getting on to the next thing. We wandered in to the Botanic House 45 minutes before they were due to start serving food and decided to chance our arms, not thinking there was much of a chance that we'd get fed. We we met by really friendly staff and a quiet, relaxed atmosphere. Food was no problem at all and menus appeared immediately.
The food itself was really lovely - very tasty, attractive and perfectly cooked. Even though we were under a bit of pressure for time, we had to stay for dessert as the main courses were so good - and we weren't disappointed. Fabulous fresh, healthy food.
The Botanic House is very conveniently located. There's plenty of parking nearby and the food and the welcome are worth a trip. We will definitely be going back!

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

I went there last Saturday (April 2013) and found the service really good, the staff was friendly and the atmosphere in the restaurant really relaxing. There is a Bar and a Restaurant both have a a separate entrance when you walk in the premises.
The food was really good too, I had the 10oz steak which was coooked to my liking and very nicely presented. Overall we enjoyed the dinner and would recommend the place. The menu is pretty varied without being overwhelming.
I wonder if the place turns into a late night venue because a DJ was setting up as we were finishing our meal.

“Delicious food, friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We have now tried the Botanic House on several occasions for meals. The staff are lovely and very pleasant. The food was even better. It's very reasonably priced and is of great quality, not your average pub group. There is great variety on the menu and the starters and mains are delicious. We have been in large groups and everybody has been pleased with their food. We will definitely go back.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We went here to get an evening meal and chose to have the meal in the bar instead of the restaurant. The food was absolutely gorgeous and reasonable priced. The staff here are the friendliest I have ever met, brilliant barman! Who persuaded us to stay for the music session that was taking place that evening. We stayed and took part and had the best night of our stay in Dublin! Another place that I will definitely be going back to. Can't fault it at all!.

“AMAZING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

The food was fabulous! It was nice to be able to find a place during the massive waits over St Patrick's weekend that gave you excellent service for a great value and taste that was out of this world. Lovely place to go and hang out.
