Always a good reliable brunch. Some minor changes to menu although the porridge is always a winner for us. Table was a bit sticky as not wiped down well enough and had to send some cutlery back as dirty. Glasses still wet from dishwasher. Would prefer them dry without water blotches. Staff friendly and food good though. Haven't been in a while. Just need to get back to attention to detail of tables etc. Surcharging now on Sundays too of 15%. Quite a whack even if you pay cash.

Great food and the surroundings are very relaxing. We got a spot right next to the outdoor fireplace and the place is dog friendly so we could bring our dogs along.

Had a beautiful lunch here. The food and cake we ordered was outstanding. So fresh. The guy who served us was great, can’t remember his name a young guy with blue tips in his hair. Definitely recommend this place.

I met a friend for breakfast. I ordered the fritters, they were delicious. The coffee was good, as was the service. The only thing I didn’t enjoy was the proximity to the next table. I would definitely revisit but maybe sit outside.

About the restaurant
Embodying old and new, Flovie incorporates both contemporary design with antique pieces. A large vintage cabinet is used for displaying fresh cut flowers and a German-made piano takes centre stage among hanging floral garlands and dried foliage. In their left corner, a curve wooden stair case leads you to the event and function space upstairs. High ceiling, two large rustic bronze crystal chandeliers and black and white French styling make it a perfect venue for your next private function or corporate event. Before you go my friend take a bouquet with you, for you never know who you may meet as you start your colourful journey. That is the proper way, the Flovie way, flowers and love. See me again, you’re always welcome at Flovie as we’ll always be early.

Flovie is a beautiful cafe for flower lovers and foodies! The staff were friendly and accommodating, I called at 9am to add another person onto my 12:30 booking. We arrived 20mins early and saw the 5-seater clean table reserved (expecting this to be ours) we were asked to wait outside and I took the staff 10-15 to take us to that same table. The menu only had the big breaky as Gluten free option, and nothing GF in the pastry cabinet so my friend was very disappointed. Another friend is vegan and most of the food has vegetarian option but not vegan. I hope Flovie can develop more flexible options!

About the restaurant
Taking a stroll through Melbourne’s iconic Botanical Gardens always leads back to Jardin Tan. The picture-perfect location offers a vibrant fusion of Vietnamese and French cuisine within a modern Australian setting. The exciting and delicious fusion of Vietnamese cuisine at Jardin Tan never fails to excite tourists, families and joggers alike.

Much like the grounds themselves, as the leaves change colour with the seasons so too does the menu. Ingredients are kept local, seasonal and are predominately grown in the garden. Jardin Tan offers a different experience to each diner – enjoy a takeaway coffee from the outdoor kiosk, a warm and cosy indoor lunch or an afternoon drink in the thriving courtyard.

This is a lovely restaurant for a lunch time in the Botanical Gardens. The food is delicious, and the service is fast and friendly. We love the outside garden area at the back of the restaurant. Good value for money. Thank you.
