We had a delicious two course lunch there today. We inadvertently ordered one entree that my partner was unable to eat (dietary concerns) and the staff, without request to do so or hesitation, changed the entree to something absolutely amazing. Highly recommend the venue and the scenery.

Had a quick escape lunch with my beautiful wife in the botanic gardens restaurant. Great location and food and service did not disappoint. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Recommended.

We made another visit to our favourite Botanic Garden restaurant in Adelaide. The setting is out of this world and the service is outstanding. Unfortunately the food this visit wasn't up to snuff. The Chef was away in NYC and his absence was obvious. It just wasn't up to the usual high standard. Luckily the excellent staff picked up our... More

Arrived 1.30 to find café had almost totally run out of even simple food. Had to make do with a cheese sandwich - not even any tomatoes. Very badly run.

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
