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!
Beautiful little place to catch up with friends. Great food just made everything so better. Nice vegetarian options too, totally loved everything.
Always a great meal. The chicken dish is amazing.
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.
Always great food and drinks. One of my favourite neighbourhood gems.
A neighbourhood gem in Kirribilli with delicious share plates, mouthwatering mains and amazing cocktails. Remains one of my all time fave restaurants.
What a wonderful menu with really different tastes. The trout was superb , I eat a lot of fish and this was 5 star. And well those potatoes, the best ! A wonderful evening
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.
Love this neighbourhood restaurant/bar, great vibe, food always good, and have some great wait staff.
Great vibe, great food, great service...just turn the music down a bit please.
The wine list is fabulous!
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.
Incredible menu, and great service.
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!
Great food and wine!
Great service by waiter and amazing live music Also fantastic flavours for all dishes we ordered - beef, gnocchi and Brussels+ drinks - sangria
