Such a nice restaurant only down fall is it’s in a retirement village. However, once inside you don’t notice and it’s a very nice place.

Most amazing dining experience I've had for a long time. We travelled all the way from Shellharbour to especially come to the Bontanica and we were not disappointed! Thank you!

Tucked away location in the neighbourhood but a nice light and airy venue with good decor. Food was good and service was good too, although there was a fairly long wait between entree and main course.

Menu and food was delicious. Unfortunately we were told we only had the table for 1.5 hours on arrival which felt a little rushed (and hence effected the service), but will definitely go back. Perfect location for a girly special occasion.

It was our first time dining at the The Botanica Vaucluse and we loved it everything about it. We ordered the the slow roast whole lamb shoulder and we could not fault the dish. Dessert was also delicious, we had the hazelnut, chocolate and apple tart 10/10. We look forward to returning.

A lovely venue for brunch with the girls. A lot of natural light and very spacious seating with comfortable chairs. We ordered the 'baked eggs' which was unfortunately disappointing. Tasted like runny hollandaise sauce - a bit too heavy for the first meal of the day! Would go back to try something else though; my friend's coconut pancakes looked nice. The service wasn't great - I think perhaps they didn't have enough staff on the floor. I wanted to order another coffee the but waitress didn't come back to check on us and flagging her down was difficult. We asked her to take a photo for us as it was my birthday and she forgot to come back. We had to ask twice. Perhaps if they had more staff on things would have been different. The garden out the back is quite lovely too. Would like to take my mum!
