Had a lovely evening at The Botanica! We had the three course dinner which was excellent! The wagyu beef cheek melt in mouth. The desserts were to die for! The kids also loved their beef fillet and wonderful desserts. Service was friendly too. Would highly recommend this restaurant in Hunter Valley!

About Restaurant Botanica

Regional best After 30 years working around the world (including stints running the successful catering arms of the Sydney Opera House and Rockpool) chef Mark Stapleton has settled down in Pokolbin with Restaurant Botanica, much to the delight of locals. This award-winning eatery is everything a good regional restaurant should be. Inventive enough to be interesting but consistent enough to guarantee you’ll get an excellent meal. Stapleton takes full advantage of local producers and winemakers, and the freshness is evident on the plate. Depending on how hungry you are, you can try the 5 course signature menu, or pick from the well-priced a la carte list. Either way, you will get to try tasty (and colourful) treats like salad of watermelon and grilled beetroot with quail egg, pancetta, macadamia, watercress and caramelised verjus, orbeef cheek ravioli with cauliflower, bacon and sauce bourguignon to start. The main course options are just as vibrant, with the Mandagery Creek venison with sweet potato, goats curd and pea pesto a stand out option. Finish with home-made rocky road or caramelised popcorn, or a little wedge of local cheese. Best dish: slow-cooked pig cheek
