Our menus are based on the very finest vegetables. Vegetables play the starring role and are complemented with a little cheese or eggs when requested. Most of our produce is grown on local soil and combined with international flavours and cooking techniques to create exciting, fresh and vibrant dishes.
Our wines are organic and come from farmers in Europe, whose vision of agriculture chimes with ours. Honest wine made with love and care, using natural methods. Unpretentious, proven craftsmanship. We believe wine made in this way tastes better, is more vibrant, pure and matches perfectly with our food.
Our beers are brewed in Sussex with the freshest and natural ingredients and so is our coffee which we roast a few metres away from our lit

Spectacular food- vibrantly coloured dishes of generous proportions. Very festive and imaginative! Just really need to get heating sorted as was freezing!
Fantastic vegan Xmas day menu, accompanied with a great wine list that included local wineries.
Tim (manager) and Hannah (assistant manager) are both naturals at what they do and make you feel very welcome and at home. Their knowledge of the food and wine is is excelllent so we also learnt a few things too!
The building itself is gorgeous and it has a beautiful antique wooden staircase (Dutch?) that sets it off.
Definitely go and try Botanique, we will be back as soon as Tiers 3&4 are gone. We thought our Xmas day was going to be horrible, but getting out and having lunch at Botanique with Tim and Hannah certainly changed that! Thankyou both and of course the amazing chefs too!
Made our last night of freedom and our anniversary very special. Many thanks.
Delightful venue, delicious food, good social distancing. We really enjoyed our meal Thank you!
I’m not vegan but I really like this restaurant. The food is excellent- different and very well presented. The cheesecake dessert is like no other one you have tasted!
Probably the best vegetarian restaurant I’ve been to ever.
Food amazing along with brilliant service in a gorgeous setting.
Would highly recommend.
We went for my partner's birthday. The food was great, the service was outstanding, and the staff members were very helpful and accomodating with a small birthday request, Can't recommend it highly enough!
I have the feeling food is usually better. On this day, unfortunately, the aubergine (main part of our dish) was not cooked properly. The mint tea didn’t have enough mint and it just tasted of water. The waitresses are lovely and polite, and remember to ask the questions they have to but they’re perhaps too young and not really that keen. No refund or compensation was offered. I really want to like and support this place but I’m not sure we will.
Beautiful restaurant, friendly service and delicious,wonderfully presented food. Could maybe do with lowering the lights a little during the day especially on gloomy winter days (and light the candles), to enhance the ambience of the gorgeous rooms,but apart from that, can’t fault it. We will return.
The food was absolutely stunning. A delightful menu that gives their history of the dishes. Good portions. And lovely wine. Really helpful nice staff.
Wonderful food and brilliant service. Catered for gluten free options and recommended some lovely orange wine!
My third visit in only a few months. Beautiful food and great service. I look forward to next time.
Super brunch - chilled relaxing with excellent food. The Enoki mushroom tempura was outstanding as was the brioche French toast - very highly recommended.
Beautifully presented food that tasted amazing. Staff were really exceptional - make sure to bring cask to tip as it can’t be added to the bill and boy you’ll want to!
Absolutely divine food! Great service too, staff were attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. The interior is really lovely. The only issue was I found it was too cold at the back where we were sat. Several other guests commented on it too. It was a shame as I couldn't relax properly because if it.
It was a fantastic meal though, the menu is really fabulous and I would recommend for sure. Just bring an extra layer!
Lovely atmosphere. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The food was outstanding. Will definitely be returning.
This was our second visit to Botanique and again, it was incredible. Everything about the restaurant is spot on, the food is delicious, the service is attentive and friendly and we’ll be back again very soon!
Really interesting flavours, extremely well presented; good though limited choice of wines; great service...turned out to be a really nice evening and this venue played a significant part.
Quiet evening but still a lovely setting and peaceful vibe, we got a lovely window table and the service was great!
Food was delicious, especially the sprouts side.
We love Food for Friends so were very disappointed with this new venture. In terms of the restaurant layout the upstairs is fine but the downstairs is rather awkward- we were at the back so had to experience people going to and from the toilet! The food was okish but overall we found it pretty bland - when asked how the food was we gave our feedback to the waiter who then just walked off. Perhaps we went on a bad night given it was the last night before lockdown - however it is not a cheap meal so if that was the case it shouldn't have been.
We sampled a good portion of the menu and it was amazing. Our hearts go to the tempura emoji mushrooms, they’re truly amazing. The atmosphere was lovely and cosy, perfect anniversary meal just before the 2nd lockdown. Keep up the good work team and we hope to eat there again soon!
I liked the concept of the menu and the thought that had gone into it but the taste of the food just didn't match up.
Food was amazing waitress was great, we asked to move table and were then seated at a great table upstairs by the window and was a truly wonderful evening
A vegetarian restaurant on a par with Terre a Terre - which means - it’s terrific.
It was my first time eating at Botanique.
It definitely won’t be my last.
The staff were helpful and friendly, the surroundings very pleasant and the food was delicious.
Great food, friendly staff and good service and a lovely atmosphere. Quickly become a favourite in Brighton
Amazing food and excellence service! Would definitely go again
Great breakfast at short notice - highly recommended.
Absolutely stunning from start to finish, I can’t wait to return
The only complaint is that we weren’t warned how generous the portions are and ordered far too much.
Not a bad problem though as we were offered a doggy bag!
Incredible experience. The best meal out I’ve had in years!
Delicious food and fantastic service. Lovely atmosphere.
Some of the nicest food I have had in a very long time. Beautifully presented, well balanced and a celebration of the wonders of veggies. Very well informed staff and a wonderful story behind each dish. Highly recommend the mushrooms!
Lovely long lunch in a relaxed atmosphere for a birthday celebration. Great food and service. Thanks
Botanique serves good quality vegetarian good in a nice setting. Highly recommended.
Fantastic food and lovely atmosphere. I’ll definitely dine there again
Lovely service and food
Really lovely treat for vegan diners, and those who fancy a change. The food choices are a delight - it was hard to decide which to choose, they all sounded lovely (and were when the ones we went for arrived). Definitely recommended... it’s just what Hove’s been waiting for!
Amazing brunch! Favourite so far in Brighton having moved a few months ago! Would recommend to everyone xxx
