Love the Bot come here often and it’s always a good time- great that they now have Carlton on tap

Worst meal ever, staff unfriendly and couldn't be bothered, so disappointed with everything about the place. Would never go there again.

Great atmosphere

Restaurant was very busy, seemed a bit under staffed. Table allocated to us was not the best even after booking very early. One of the meals has not great but to the credit of waiter, took the meal off the bill.

I ordered the seafood linguini. It was very disappointing. The 2 prawns were gelatinous and inedible. The ‘fish’ was diced and of poor quality. The food definitely was disappointing and for $37 for this main there were many pipì shells and was lacking in any real seafood. The wine list was extensive with lots of choice!

Amazing dinner on Thursday night - had the $25 steak deal and the steak was honestly the best I have had in a long time! Service was amazing too.

About The Botanical

Classic South Yarra dining Welcome to one of South Yarra’s most sophisticated eating and drinking destinations. Positioned conveniently on the Domain Road shopping strip and opposite the beautiful Botanic Gardens and famous Tan running track, The Botanical is one of Melbourne’s go-to destinations for a morning coffee, beautiful dinner or drinks. The bistro caters for those in need of a caffeine and brekkie fix or a casual lunch or dinner, the more formal dining room that runs alongside the dining room serves up provincial French and Mediterranean cuisine, while the bar at back is the place for a relaxed drink and catch up with mates. Some say it’s a relaxed wine bar, others say upmarket pub. But it’s much of a muchness. So whether you’re looking for somewhere to re-fuel after a sesh at the Tan, you’re in need of a drinks spot or you’ve got something to celebrate, The Botanical is somewhere to keep in mind. Best dish: confit ocean trout, squid ink prawn cracker, roast pumpkin, hazelnut crème fraiche
