    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.

    This place is a great find offering a great selection of small & large plates of Mediterranean cuisine. Food was fresh, diverse & delicious. The banquet menu which consists of a mix of their small & large plates sharing menu was a great choice as you got to try from both menus; service was excellent & waiters explained each dish; my only complaint was the chamomile tea was diluted & the coffee not tasty.

    The Botanist does not disappoint. Good food, great atmosphere nice service. Only downside is the accustic and it can get quite loud which makes conversations a bit challenging. However I will be back. Love it.

    A doorway leading down to a beautiful basement restaurant that brings to you an array of cocktails and fine food. A selection of share plates that are more filling than the eye perceives with amazing flavours. The service was awesome as well.

    The food was excellent and the vibe was great. Would highly recommend. Wine list is extensive and a bit pricey but not unsual for Kirribilli. Really enjoyed our evening.

    Always enjoy going to The Botanist. Good food and drinks. On our last visit, the food wasn’t as good though - portions a bit smaller and flavours not as exciting as usual.

    The Botanist is amazing! Have been coming here for a few months on an almost weekly basis. vibe in great (if you don't mind lot's of loud talking) Late night orientated, great wine list and fantastic share plates. Wish there was more Vegan options but the chefs are happy to adjust to dietries at any request. Staff are great and good to chat too, will be coming here more and more no doubt! Keep up the great work and food!
