If you are spending a long weekend in the Hunter Valley and you are looking for a place where to have a very special delicious and gastro meal - look no further. Botanica is a beautiful space set in the heart of the charming Australian countryside, in the Pokolbin area. We made our way there on foot (we were staying nearby), in the pitch black under a star drenched sky.
Suddenly this vision appeared in front of our eyes: a candle lit intimate restaurant, which is classy but no stuffy. The service is friendly, professional and they really do go the extra mile (eg. they drove is back home at the end of the meal).
Importantly, the food is delicious and the menu well balanced. I had an incredible pork belly and scallops starter, amazing lamb as main course. The wine list, as expected, is fantastic and it will complement whichever choice you will make among the rich and opulent menu options. The dessert menu was not to my taste unfortunately- hence the 4 rather than 5 stars.
I went there with 10 people and we all loved it.
This place is ace and I will definitely be back.
