Feel Special, Taste Local

DINE TONIGHT AT BOTANICA

botanica

Botanica is a cosy restaurant located on the ground floor of one of the Victorian villas converted into an independent hotel.

The area of Clifton is famous for its hidden leafy squares and secret gardens. Drawing from its historical green surrounds, Botanica is devoted to bringing an ever-changing, seasonal menu of simply-cooked yet inspired dishes to the Bristol table.

We combine local produce with spices and flavours from around Europe. Our menu showcases organic vegetables, fruits, smartly raised and sourced meat and seafood too. It is vibrant and colourful, fresh and moreish.

We are open 6:00pm-9:00pm Monday to Thursday, also to non-residents! Please contact us on 0117 973 9058 or botanica@victoriasquarehotel.co.uk to reserve your table. If you feel the lure of a pizza night at home, we are offering pizzas to take away!
