Good Vegetarian Options
The delightful fragrances and colours are early signs of the new season; the first tomato, the first aubergine. There’s nothing quite like the sweet smell of a local farm with strawberries and flowering lavender.

Our menus are based on the very finest vegetables. Vegetables play the starring role and are complemented with a little cheese or eggs when requested. Most of our produce is grown on local soil and combined with international flavours and cooking techniques to create exciting, fresh and vibrant dishes.

Our wines are organic and come from farmers in Europe, whose vision of agriculture chimes with ours. Honest wine made with love and care, using natural methods. Unpretentious, proven craftsmanship. We believe wine made in this way tastes better, is more vibrant, pure and matches perfectly with our food.

Our beers are brewed in Sussex with the freshest and natural ingredients and so is our coffee which we roast a few metres away from our lit

We love Food for Friends so were very disappointed with this new venture. In terms of the restaurant layout the upstairs is fine but the downstairs is rather awkward- we were at the back so had to experience people going to and from the toilet! The food was okish but overall we found it pretty bland - when asked how the food was we gave our feedback to the waiter who then just walked off. Perhaps we went on a bad night given it was the last night before lockdown - however it is not a cheap meal so if that was the case it shouldn't have been.

We sampled a good portion of the menu and it was amazing. Our hearts go to the tempura emoji mushrooms, they’re truly amazing. The atmosphere was lovely and cosy, perfect anniversary meal just before the 2nd lockdown. Keep up the good work team and we hope to eat there again soon!

I liked the concept of the menu and the thought that had gone into it but the taste of the food just didn't match up.

A vegetarian restaurant on a par with Terre a Terre - which means - it’s terrific.

Superb!
The only complaint is that we weren’t warned how generous the portions are and ordered far too much.
Not a bad problem though as we were offered a doggy bag!

Really lovely treat for vegan diners, and those who fancy a change. The food choices are a delight - it was hard to decide which to choose, they all sounded lovely (and were when the ones we went for arrived). Definitely recommended... it’s just what Hove’s been waiting for!

We were a party of three people and our overall impression was mixed. The idea of a vegan restaurant is great and some of our food was nice, but not all. For me, the mushroom tempura starter was overcooked and disappointing. Our main courses were good but the desserts less so e.g. I had rice pudding with poached pear, which was hard.
The overall ambience was relaxed and tables were well distanced from one another. The highspot of our experience was the service, which was very friendly and attentive.

Delicious brunch at Botanique. Avocado on toast and mushroom on toast. Nicely presented and delicious. Good coffee as well. Decor very understated but stylish and loved the linen napkins.
Very good value

Really lovely evening at La Botanique. The setting is lovely. We all really enjoyed our meals and the variety, however they were on the higher end price wise and the menu was a little too wordy. Would definitely go back for a special occasion.

A gorgeous restaurant, with great friendly staff and amazing food. It's lovely as a new vegan to be able to order anything I want off of the menu and not worry. I highly recommend for a fine dining vegetarian/vegan experience.

Our dinner at Botanique was amazing. The descriptions on the menu are quite cryptic, so each dish was a delicious delight. Obviously, a lot of work has gone into each dish to get the amazing flavours and textures. Keen to go back as soon as I can.

Just back from Scotland where Covid safe standards were so high - like Temperature checked on arrival. One member of staff’s mask only covered his mouth. Just doesn’t fill me with confidence. That said food was good.

Good new addition to Hove restaurant scene. Good variety on the menu though quite a few options needed explain in what they were. The washroom is in the courtyard outside and we felt a slight draught when the door was opened , which I imagine will be more noticeable as winter approaches. Service was efficient and friendly. I’m not vegan or vegetarian but found the food I had tasty and satisfying

The food was great but the service was so slow! It took over an hour for a simple brunch to arrive for two people and over 45 mins to order in the first place. Shame because it was otherwise lovely.
