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.

    Another spectacular eating delight at Botanique. Fabulous small plates and every mouthful gorgeous. Only one tiny criticism is the huge sweetness of the panacotta which was rather overpowering. However, I do not have a sweet tooth and so possibly not a great judge of that! This is fast becoming my favourite restaurant and have recommended Botanique to all ❤️

    Innovative cuisine, full of flavour and excellent service. Really beautiful building with quirky decor, just needs a bit of TLC on the toilet front to be a 10 out of 10 for gourmet vegan dining.

    Absolutely amazing food! I would highly recommend. If you're in the Brighton area and you're vegetarian or vegan than this is the place for you. Gourmet food with great amazing tastes and very filling. It was a special occasion for our twenty eighth wedding anniversary which wasn't wasted at Botanique. Staff were super friendly and chatty. We'll be back! Ten out of ten for Botanique.

    Food was mediocre, the whole time we were there all we could hear was the kitchen noise coming from downstairs and the road noise due to the front door being kept open. Service was poor, he gave my plate to my date and hers to me, once we finished our meal i tried to call the waiter over to request the bill but he had headphones on and couldn't hear me, i finally got his attention and he didn't even apologise for wearing headphones whilst he was working. The decor inside felt a little underwhelming and the food was nothing to rave about. All in all i would say it has potential to be a great little gem but It’s lacking in key areas. I will not be returning

    It was a very unique experience. The place is simply designed, having a very clam and peaceful effect, and letting the food do all the talking. My taste buds had one of the most extraordinary experience. I highly recommend this place. The head chef is absolutely very talented.

    We thought back to all of our favourite dining experiences and agreed that this would go in the list as one of them. Excellent work from the chefs and the FOH as well. Innovative menu and a carnivore could well be silenced by the flavour and fulfilling dishes. A brilliant place for a special occasion

    The staff were charming, the food was excellent, and the restaurant is a very attractive space. My only complaint is that the acoustics aren't very good, in as much as it was very noisy just having people on a nearby table talking.

    I had a lovely birthday lunch here. Had always wanted to try and it didn’t disappoint despite the date coinciding with some food issues for me. They were super flexible about removing some ingredients and it still tasted amazing. I loved the beetroot. Will go again when I can eat more.

    My daughter is vegetarian so I booked a table for 3 of us here. We ate about 18.30, had a variety of plates to share. It was utterly fantastic....the chef has devised such a delicious and interesting array of dishes, all using seasonal local produce. As I said to her : "I am far from vegetarian, but that was the best meal I've had in ages !"

    The quality of the food was great. The flavours were amazing. Lovely place to dine out if you are a vegan; definitely not a place we could go with a friend or relative who isn't vegan to try to encourage them to choose something without meat. Just not enough variety or choice on the menu; it was limited to 3 mains, which wouldn't be enough if a larger group were going together. As a vegan couple, it was adequate. Oh yes, and the knives were blunt! Definitely need some new, sharper knives, please.
