We love seeing our customers being recognised, and so it's great to see one of our favourites, Restaurant Botanic, taking home ‘Best Restaurant for South Australia’ at the 2023 edition of the Gourmet Traveller Annual Restaurant Awards.
Located deep in the heart of the stunning 51-hectare Adelaide Botanic Garden, Restaurant Botanic has astounded critics from the country's most popular and respected national food magazines, Delicious and Gourmet Traveller, as well as the national broadsheet, The Australian, where critic John Lethlean gave Botantic a rare five-star review earlier in the year.
“These restaurants represent the best dining in their states and collectively reflect the incredible calibre of dining in Australia.”
"We are incredibly humbled to receive this recognition by Gourmet Traveller" Executive Chef Justin James said. "Since opening in mid-2021, our mission has been to deliver exceptional experiences with something unique and immersive that is tied to time and place. That time is the moment we welcome you into our restaurant and that place is the Botanic Garden.
"Our aim is to create something beyond the everyday fine-dining restaurant experience," Justin says. "We want our guests to experience the exceptional when they walk through our doors and enjoy a mini holiday for the four hours they are here. We are super-friendly, welcoming, and accommodating to make a connection with every person who visits."
For great food in a gorgeous setting, head to Adelaide. And while we can't help you recreate the food, we can help you replicate the mood: choose our Textured Sphere candles to reminisce over a memorable dining experience, or to create your own!
