My partner and I had a very pleasant meal at Restaurant Botanica a few weeks ago. We were staying at the Chateau Elan and were worried about the drive out as we were told it was a fair distance. To our surprise the taxi only took 10mins. We had a warm welcome by the staff and a complementary glass of sparkling wine, courtesy of our hotel. The menu was fantastic and throughout the evening the staff were friendly and diligent. We were particularly amazed by the quality of fresh produce which we have struggled to find elsewhere in Australia. The beef we had for mains was beautifully cooked, the mushrooms were sourced locally and tasted fantastic. The cheese board included some of the best cheeses we have had in the country. The chef had obviously taken a lot of time to produce such stunning flavours through using a lot of their own grown produce. We have travelled through Australia over 2 years now and this is one of our top rated restaurants. We would definitely recommend Restaurant Botanica if you are staying in the Hunter Valley.
