One of Melbourne's most revered hotels, the Botanical, reopened its doors in November 2010 after a significant renovation and has emerged as one of Melbourne's most exciting dining and drinking destinations. Superbly located adjacent to the famous Botanic Gardens, the Botanical underwent a $4 million renovation by leading Melbourne design firm Webb +, transforming it into a multi-faceted venue complete with formal restaurant, informal wine store and café, a bar and lounge for more serious drinkers and the alfresco-inspired 'Archer Room’ for casual dining and private events. The Botanical presents a generous, family style menu in the restaurant, Bistro and bar. It is a celebration of Provencial French/ Mediterranean cuisine, incorporating only the highest quality, sustainable produce. The restaurant has a capacity for 80 diners including a Private Dining room that holds up to 20 with the table crafted from a fallen tree in the Botanic Gardens. It provides a formal dining experience with the gravitas of dark-stained solid oak tables lightened by the contemporary artworks of Melbourne artist, Janenne Eaton.
