The Botanical is a sophisticated restaurant, bar and function venue, situated on the edge of the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens.

The Bistro is perfect for casual dining – with the doors opened to views of the neighbouring Royal Botanic Gardens, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the South Yarra atmosphere. The contemporary menu celebrates provincial French & Mediterranean cuisine and incorporates only the highest quality, sustainable produce, paired with an award-winning wine list.

The Botanical’s dining room is a Melbourne institution. Perfect for special celebrations, yet equally suited to weekday lunches and dinners, the dining room is a classic, sophisticated space. The contemporary Australian menu takes its culinary cues from across the world – from France, through Italy, across Asia and the Americas – delivering a modern dining experience that is always delicious.

The Botanical’s five-time award-winning wine list is integral to the dining experience. Featuring around 900 wines, there’s something to suit all occasions.

Featuring modern function rooms, award-winning menus and professional service, the Botanical has earned its reputation as an institution in Melbourne’s hospitality scene. The private dining rooms can host a range of events including boardroom meetings, team planning sessions, long luncheons and intimate dinners. View our private dining packages now.
