We popped in to the Botanist for a quick meal on a weekday. We were not disappointed by the food - we had a Cote de Boeuf for two that was cooked just right and was delicious, accompanied by two thick and mouthwatering sauces. The service perhaps left something to be desired - the waiter was appalled by the fact that we only wanted the main course, especially after his stark warning that it could take at least half an hour depending on how well done we wanted it, and it was generally a bit challenging to get someone’s attention. This could however be attributed to the fact that this place is much more suited for a leisurely visit, long dinner and a drink or two at the busy bar up front, and we were going much too fast for them through our dinner.

It definitely has potential, and I would gladly go back for second try.
