    We keep coming to the Botanist and we will. We just love the food and the vibes. Every time we come here, we get octopus and cauliflower. They are just so delicious!! There are also a lot of vegetarian dishes. We always feel welcome. Staff there are very helpful, friendly and professional. I brought my family a few times and this time I brought my friend. I just can't wait to try more dishes next time.

    Food, drinks and atmosphere were all great. Was trying to have a conversation with my friends and we were interrupted too many times to see if we were ok. Other than that, nice place.

    The Botanist is a great little restaurant. The food and service is always excellent. They can even cater the food if you’re are vegan. I love the atmosphere but be prepared it’s a noisy restaurant which I think adds to the fun feel. You can stop in for a great wine or cocktail as there’s a small bar area if you’re not having dinner. A great place to enjoy a night out with friends.

    We loved dinner at the Botanist last night. The food was great as was the service. I’d like to give a shoutout to a staff member who I think was called Izzy who was fantastic. While not our server she did not stop doing things the whole time we were there and was always on the ball collecting drinks, food and clearing plates and talking with customers. She is a real credit to the restaurant.

    Consistently good food especially the tuna ceviche. I’ve never had their desserts but last night was really quite special. The lemon sorbet with cake was exceptional and espresso martini was superb! So pleased my Melburnian and Canberarian visitors got to sample. They were impressed!

    The service was very attentive and excellent. The food delicious with such variety. Even the non-alcoholic cocktail was good. We thoroughly enjoyed our tapas lunch.

    The food is always wonderful- creative without being precious, excellent timing from the kitchen. Drinks are terrific, wine choices are thoughtful and are great foils for the food. Great vibe- my local go-to.

    The Botanist has become the go-to for our twice-a-year team lunch because the food is always creative and excellent. The range allows for everyone's needs to be met, and I've literally never had a bad dish. Can't go wrong!

    A great place for a lazy Sunday lunch. Superb food, particularly the gnocchi with nduja. Wide choice of drinks and staff who were keen for us to enjoy the experience and weren’t trying to rush us out the door.

    Great food. Excellent variety and vegetarian options. Fun buzzing ambience. Generally good service. Music perhaps a bit loud but ok for a Friday evening crowd.
