The Botanical

Wow beautifully presented food, great generous sized mains... we were so full when we left... However, I really expected better decor... our table and chair looked like they were taken from some University Campus somewhere... See picture of where we sat . Perhaps they're are "bring the outdoor in?"

Great selection of oysters, interesting and varied dishes through out... Wish we had enough appetite for dessert though - they look delicious on the menu!

There is a beautiful bar - Bubble Bar in the back of the restaurant. It looks like a happening place .

Our dinner:
Seafood Bisque (similar to a mild red thai curry)
Warm poached egg with truffles, reggianno & soft polenta (Love truffles!)

Sashimi of yellow fin tuna with roasted prawns, ginger & wasabi (Very light, and refreshing)
Wagyu Marbled Rib-Eye Scotch Fillet wth rocket and onion salad (very tender)

Forest mushrooms bordelaise with bacon & duck fat roasted potatoes

A glass of Eric Louis Sancerre chilled white
Lemon lime bitters
A big bottle of St Vitt Sparkling Mineral Water
