“Beautiful Venue - Ordinary Fare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

The venue is second to none and service was friendly. However, the food leaves a lot to be desired. Won't bother returning.

“Botanic Gardens Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

Service can be a little slow but food well worth waiting for. Anyway the scenery is good and lots of people traffic to watch while you are waiting. Staff professional and polite.

“Great setting and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

We have just had a particularly pleasant lunch in the beautifully situated Botanic Gardens Restaurant. The food was fresh, tasty and extremely good quality and this was complemented by the picturesque setting and friendly relaxing service. A really pleasant place to spend a few hour with friends from anywhere on the planet. Highly recommended.

“Family lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

The restaurant has a good choice and the prices are reasonable. The best thing is being able to enjoy the natural beauty of the gardens afterwards!. You need to have good walking shoes on as it is a big area to cover. Ducks to see for the children and different plant species in the glass houses. If the weather is good, it's a great day out!

“vastly improved”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

We had a really excellent lunch here. New chef and so much better than what we had a few months ago. We weren't going to come back but glad we did. Everything was beautifully presented and tasted good.
