    We went early (6pm) so was quite quiet. Service was spot on, friendly and jovial but not in your face. Food was absolutely excellent I can’t say anything negative about it. Lovely place and will be back. If you go and the curried cod is on the menu you need to have it, it was out of this world

    Around half menu was not available we were not told prior to arriving even though we had prebooked a table. Service was slow. Drinks menu not available. Meal prices too expensive for what you get. Only get burger no salad or chips have to order everything separately. Lobster roll came in a hot dog bun not what was expected for £18!!! One meal brought out 20mins after the other 5 as they had forgotten Over all we were not happy with our experience at Botanica.

    It is really hard to write this review as we didn’t end up staying at this restaurant so I have no idea of the quality of food. However the whole experience was not pleasant. It started when we were telephoned about an hour before our reservation to ask us if we would sit outside as they had a problem with the amount of tables inside. When I said I’d rather sit inside they miraculously said they did have a table after all. When we got there we were crammed into a booth it was so narrow that was impossible to opposite each other - we could barely fit into it. The drinks menus were dirty pieces of paper covered in stains and crumpled. The waitress came over and said that she needed to check what they didn’t have and then wandered off again. It turned out they didn’t have most of the menu. No explanation or apology was given. And so it went on. We decided to leave. It may be that you will have better luck as other reviewers have nice things to say about the food. But given the amount of choice in the area you might not want to risk a wasted night out.

    Lovely food, but we had to ask for another drink and also didn’t get offered dessert. We ordered another drink which took 15 minutes to arrive, then were rushed off our table as they ‘needed’ it. There were 3 other empty tables of the same size. We basically had to drink up and leave.

    Food was lovely but service slow. I have been a few times lately and the same thing has happened. The food was superb and the staff themselves whilst serving are lovely and I would still highly recommend even though we had long waiting times. Firstly waiting for menus and then between ordering the drinks then waiting to order food.

    Although the food was lovely there is a series of events that have led me to make such and awful review. We arrived and waited to be seated a dark haired girl came out and gave us a look(oh god the bookings arrived) my dad also noticed.. when she came over to ask how she could help I advised we had a booking. She then said as you are late I don’t know if the kitchen is open it was 4.34 our booking was at 4.30. She then showed us in and said it’s fine as long as you order quickly. So all booking have to order by how long.?? We were sat down at 4.36pm another server came over and asked if we were ready.. she was polite but I imagine also wanted us gone as we felt hurried. We said we weren’t ready she asked if anyone knows what they want.?? I wanted the lobster roll not available fine I ordered pulled pork tacos. 5 minutes later the server came over and said the chef only has enough for 2 pulled pork tacos so he’s going to put chicken in the other .. I was like ok no worries. No would you like anything else this is the choice form the menu what tacos we have blah blah. The food came and it was lovely but spoilt by these little events. I advise if you don’t want people to come for 4.30 close earlier instead of making people feel rushed. I don’t think 3 minutes late(due to a road diversion from burton) should have resulted in us feeling like a pain from the moment we arrived. So disappointing. That was our first dinner out for my birthday yesterday. And it was spoilt by people who don’t want to be there.

    Family meal out after Rugby training. Sat outside which is well covered and warm enough. Service attentive and pleasant but not great at clearing the table and taking away empty glasses and bottles which meant less room on the table. Food was tasty although still felt a bit ‘lunchtime’ rather than evening meal with burgers and just fries as a side. No veg as sides at all. Plenty of menu choices so will go again.

    Beautiful food, decor and service. The menu has been thought out and although can feel a little overwhelming at first, going for a tapas style dining experience is definitely the way forward. Would highly recommend and the service was 10/10.
