    Loved everything about this restaurant: from the farm-to-table food, the service and the atmosphere! Will be back to try other dishes (ordered: octopus for entree and barramundi for main as part of their seafood special lunch)

    Decor was on point. Food was average. We were told we had to leave after 2 hours even though that was not specified at the time of booking. The table next to ours however did not have the same problem. Attitude of the waitress who sat us down and asked us to move outside was quite rude. The waitress who serviced our table was much nicer.

    This is a great place to enjoy a special lunch given its decor it not really like any other place in Sydney that I can think of! I had the breakfast menu and the downside is that the options is quite limited. Having said that, we wanted the additional fries for brekkie which was on the lunch menu (the staff got that sorted for us so we were pleased for that service.

    Very expensive and small portions . Had to order extra toast just so we didn’t go away starving. Pretty room but not worth it. Sadly won’t go back

    A stunning restaurant, with menu to match. Can't wait to return here, a visit for everyone is a must. We had the Banana Chia Pancakes, to die for.

    The place was beautifully decorated with bright colored furniture. The Botanica Vaucluse is located in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by flowers/greens with natural sun lights so felt so relaxing and comfortable. Every dish we have ordered serves in good presentation and very delicious! Just need to be aware the price is not that kind so average you will spend around $70 pp.

    Beautiful setting. Food delicious. Only negative is that 6 or more guests have to take a set menu which doesn’t work for us, as it is much more expensive and everyone has different food tastes. It’s a real pity as most times there are 6 to 7 in our party, which means we won’t go that often, even though we loved it

    Food was good and average however one of My friend wanted to order the beef but was told they ran out of beef. We arrived for 12pm booking and in less than an hour they ran out which is hard to believe But overall the atmosphere was good, the decor is beautiful and definitely great for celebrating special occasion. This is on the pricey end for food and drinks.
