I wanted to treat Asian business visitors to a quintessentially Adelaide cuisine experience so I chose the Botanic Gardens and its 2 or 3 out of 4 course menu. The meals were perfect in presentation and taste. The services was excellent -- well-informed and professional. The ambience, being within the park, was a perfect experience for my guests. This is...

We came on 14/1 for dinner. It was so great seeing Malcolm and Simone again along with the other staff. We love Malcolm's sarcastic, intelligent style of humour- and he was in a playful mood on this occasion- he is a pure gem and we love it. Simone is elegance personified. Professional, friendly, helpful and delightful to have with you... More

We had the most beautiful dinner here on Valentines night. We had bid for the dinner to support the Hunger Project ( as we normally wouldn't go out on Valentines night as its a bit too commercial for us). We had the most delicious dinner with pairing wines. The food was really outstanding, so much so after 7 courses we... More

A delightful restaurant nestled within the beautiful Adelaide Botanic Gardens. It is in a building like a converted bandstand surrounded by huge Moreton Bay fig trees, Crepe Myrtles and a large pond - very idyllic. The wine list is a bit obscure but we shared a great bottle of Fiano and for desert a couple of glasses of South Australian... More

A family birthday celebration called for somewhere special. The Botanic Gardens Restaurant was suitably upmarket and the setting meant that it would also be suited to those of us with young families. The two tables presented well on arrival and the group quickly divided by age. Drinks were quickly poured at our 'older' table and the younger ones were also... More

Excellent A la caret menu with extremely well trained and friendly staff in a garden environment. The meal price is reasonable given the excellent quality, taste and serving size. I would recommend this restaurant for special occasions or just spoil yourself and partner. Relax and enjoy. Modern Australian Cuisine; 2 course $60, 3 course $75, sides $10 each. Wine varies...

My wife routinely uses this place as the Christmas "thank you" spot for her volunteer Group from the nearby University of Adelaide, and on this occasion we were celebrating two 65th birthdays in our group of friends, so a pretty special occasion. The venue lived up to our desires, though there are some tips for the uninitiated below. The restaurant... More

We revisited the Botanic Gardens Restaurant which to us has the best outlook of any restaurant in Adelaide. We enjoyed the food although were surprised to see there was no steak or chicken on the menu. The service was good. However, we did notice a very strong odour in the restaurant which we actually have noticed before. It is I... More
