Description: Modern Australian yet regionally distinctive in style, the menu at Restaurant Botanica is focused on seasonality and freshness, perfectly complemented by an award-winning wine list and stunning views looking out across our private vineyard to the Brokenback Mountain Range. The restaurant's very own kitchen garden is the source of many of the herbs and vegetables that add a wholesome and healthy dimension to the dishes.

During a long weekend stay in the Hunter Valley we booked this restaurant at late notice, and so glad we did. The food was delicious and the service speedy and attentive. We had the two course meal, both choosing the soft shell crab for entree, which was YUM!! I followed this with the veal and my husband the pork belly. Both mains were very tasty. Two courses were sufficient, so we opted not to have dessert even though the dessert menu sounded just as nice. Good selection of wines with a number of local wines. Overall a very enjoyable evening and I would definitely return to Restaurant Botanica.

The home grown local vibe set in a top class location with superb food and service. A really friendly atmosphere with incredible delights. Thanks to John who looked after us so well on only his 2nd day at botanics as if he was part of the furniture. Treated like royalty and always polite with a smile. A real find we will return !

My husband and I have heard excellent food experiences here by local people. We decided to dine out and enjoy Botanica ourselves. The service and atmosphere was excellent, with a great local and imported wine selection. There is plenty too choose from the menu, that would cater to anyone. The food was delicious, so fresh and very tasty and our desserts were divine. After having our 3 course meal, we were very satisfied with the whole experience dining here. All the fresh garden salad and vegetables comes handpicked daily from Botanicas organic vegetable patch near the restaurant. We will defiantly be coming back here soon and recommend Botanica to everyone. We both loved it.
