Botanika offers a range of tasty and healthy dishes, with gluten free and vegetetian and vegan options. The interior is stylish, the garden looked very nice too, and the food is high quality. We recommend the prawn tempura and the cheesecake (tarta de queso).

We came first for dinner. Good quality of food combined with very friendly staff. We had also breakfast next morning in the garden. Many healthy options. A nice place away from the noise of Old City. I definitely recommend it!!!

Beautiful setting in the wee garden outside, next to the river. Extremely helpful staff and such lovely food. Quite different from the usual pinxtos. Organic and locally sourced.
