Vegetarian / Vegan
The excitement and anticipation that comes with growing vegetables, and creating innovative plates is translated to our guests through our menu.

The plant to plate narrative is at the centre of what we do; our chefs show our local organic farmers a nod of respect towards the passion and patience required to grow a plant, in each dish they create. The seasons dictate our menu, with passion, flavour and creativity at the heart of the operation.

This passion flows through our love of organic, and low intervention wines from small producers, carefully selected and paired with our food.

Our very own indoor vertical farm is our most recent dedication to sustainable practices, allowing us to grow our own bespoke exotic herbs and aromatics for our hyper-seasonal food and cocktail menus, with zero food miles and incomparable flavour.

Botanique never fails to delight - superb food and wonderful, friendly service and an eye-opener for omnivorous friends who cannot imagine how plant-based food can be this imaginative and delicious.

First impressions are everything and whilst it looked inviting the staff were not. Eventually one looked up from their tablet and seated us. This set the tone for some poor, rather indifferent service. The small plates selection looked and tasted great. However, staff running up and down the stairs, another pulling up her tights next to our table and a third regailing a story to his collegue and dry retching did nothing for the ambience of a romantic meal. To cap it all off we were told that they had accepted a last minute booking and needed our table(subtext - hurry up please)
Will not be going back, too many other great vegetarian/vegan restaurants with same dtandard of food and much better service.

Mixed experience...Decor is nice, inviting. The two brunch dishes we chose (mushrooms and beets) were tasty and inventive enough, but served too tepid and the sourdough toast they were served on was over-done and burnt on the edges. Sent one coffee back cos it was barely warm, so they made us another one, so suggest you ask for it extra hot. Service was just ok, but we were shocked and disappointed the staff weren't wearing masks, especially since one of them seemed to have a cold at the time - not good in the current environment.

Simply the best plant based / vegan restaurant we’ve ever been too and the best Sunday roast. Inventive food that surprises and satisfies in every way - amazing flavours and textures. Service was exemplary!

Our first visit to a Vegan restaurant as non vegans or vegetarians. We had heard lots of good things and wanted to try it out for ourselves for lunch. We were not disappointed. Amazing food and did not feel we missed out on the meat at all. The chef is super talented. Atmosphere was good downstairs but we were sat upstairs and were the only two up there so it was very quiet and lacked atmosphere. Decor was a little bland and empty compared with downstairs. That would be my only criticism. Staff were lovely and we are looking forward to going back for an evening meal.

I have been to Botanique for lunch before and loved it, but this was the first time I had been in the evening. The food was really fabulous. Wonderful flavours and friendly, professional service. We had six small plates between 4 of us and this worked perfectly. A lovely evening.

Gorgeous location, lovely decor, great atmosphere and even better food.

We've been to some of Brighton and hove's best restaurants for both vegans and non-vegans and this stands among them as a must-visit. If you're vegan and you haven't been yet you're missing out on the best restaurant in East Sussex.

A good variety of dishes to choose from without being overwhelmed, with lots of different vegetables being showcased at their best. Really flavoursome and inventive plates. Waitress helpful in explaining the plate concept. Only issues we had were it took over 45 minutes for the food to arrive but the waitress was apologetic for the delay. We had a mix up with our order and got an extra dish given which we were charged for but hadn't actually ordered, unfortunately this was the only dish we didn't rate as highly as we thought the artichokes were slightly undercooked. Also to note there was a 12.5% service charge automatically added.
