Excellent service, with a very interesting menu. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing. Some of the food was exceptional like the kangaroo, but most of the other courses were actually a little disappointing. The flavours were a little too complicated. Good experience overall, but wouldn't be rushing back.

The perfect lunch spot when visiting the botanical gardens. We had a huge bowl of chips and their egg and bacon rolls were perfect. The Café had plenty of room to sit outside and best of all good coffee!

Treated my husband to lunch for Valentines - food was excellent but the service was a little lacking for silver service. Nothing special in decorations for Valentines day, which was a little disappointing. Had table 4 which is in the corner overlooking the green lush gardens - visual delight. Ashley the manger is friendly and an asset to this establishment.

the food is basic fare, the joy comes from eating in the beautiful surroundings of the Botanic gardens

My family took me for a Mother's Day lunch in May and it was exceptional. Arancini balls to share, blackened fish etc. all meals oozed flavour. Great lunch

The food was really good and one of the better Italian restaurants I have eaten at. The food was light and fresh. I have eaten in Italy many times and thus food was equal to a lot of those meals. The only negative was the service was slow due to only one chef on duty (we could see the chef... More

Dinner for 6, we were greeted by a lovely young lady who was unfortunately terrible at providing any level of table service. Three times she approached and left our table without offering to take even a drinks order. We waited 60mins for our meals which were all undersized and unsatisfying (all 6!!). The wine list was acceptable but over priced... More

I arranged a function through this restaurant last week. The owner was lovely to deal with. Straight up and kept me in the loop with any minor details after we met to decide on the menu and price range per person. Genuine down to earth man. The guests arrived to a lovely warm intimate setting. Lovely swing style jazzy music... More

Visited this restaurant during the fringe just before a show. What a hidden treasure. Great intimate atmosphere and personalised service by the owner who knows his business. Excellent antipasto, bruschetta and fish. Great selection of wine. We didn't want to leave. We will return. Totally recommend Botanic.

My wife and I decided to try Botanic before a Fringe show about 3 weeks ago. We walked into Botanic Ristorante. They had several tables on the go. The owner invited us in and arranged a seat for 2. His knowledge of his menu and wine list was impressive to say the least. This guy has years of experience. Not... More
