Hosting a diamond wedding anniversary had us looking for a relaxed, not too crowded venue with a touch-of-something-special menu without being too out there for the (ahem!) mature palettes of some. Restaurant Botanica appeared to fit the bill and it did not disappoint. The food...More

Cannot fault this venue in any way. The service is flawless and the staff deliver an amazing experience. The quality, taste and presentation of the food is sublime with an equally impressive wine menu. A real standout in the Hunter Valley.

  • This restaurant is at Spicers Vineyards Estate
Modern Australian yet regionally distinctive in style, the menu at Restaurant Botanica is focused on seasonality and freshness, perfectly complemented by an award-winning wine list and stunning views looking out across our private vineyard to the Brokenback Mountain Range. The restaurant's very own kitchen garden is the source of many of the herbs and vegetables that add a wholesome and healthy dimension to the dishes.
