They were very lovely. We communicated mostly through email and they were so quick to reply to us and were so kind. They were so easy going, and gave us a lot of flexibility with where we could go and for how long.

What a great venue for a wedding reception! We had the ceremony in the morning at the Herb Garden (5 mins walk from the Botanic Gardens Restaurant), and then held a lunch reception at the restaurant afterwards. It was a small wedding (50 people), cozy and intimate. The service and the food was flawless. Jacinta, our event organiser, answered all our enquiries promptly. Everything went perfectly. The venue is bright and open with a nice view of the gardens. They also gave us 1 night accommodation as part of the package at Pier One hotel which was fantastic. It is a bit expensive compared to other venues, but it is all worth it!

The Botanic House was a gorgeous location for our wedding reception. The staff were friendly and accomodating even with the current covid restrictions. The food was AMAZING and all the guests could not stop raving about it. Our event co-ordinator, Katrina, was fantastic and so patient with the millions of questions I had. I cannot recommend this venue more.

5 Jan 2019

A perfect venue, we only had the actual ceremony here but it’s so beautiful. We had a ranger ( Alex we think... who was wonderful, she made our day 🥰) drive us and our 4 children (adult ones) round in her buggy for the photos Would definitely recommend botanical gardens as a wedding venue..

26 May 2018

Gorgeous venue, delicious food. Our night was amazing!

Botanic House  

Thanks so much lovely Melody! We loved hosting your special day xo

5 May 2018

A wonderful magical venue , thanks for a great night.

6 Apr 2018

Fantastic venue, the banquet was to die for and the team on the night were fantastic. Our wedding planner probably caused us the most stress leading up to the date due to miscommunications. Overall would def recommend this venue for the food alone. The location was amazing, definitely invest in the lighting supplier for the full ceiling fairy lights to add to the venue set up as the gardens are pitch black once the sun goes down!

Botanic House  

Hi Zofia, thank you so much for your wonderful review! We loved hosting your special day at Botanic Gardens Restaurant and we look forward to welcoming you back to our venue soon! Jacinta & Lorraine xo

Fantastic! We had short time frame to do our wedding and we planned everything long distance. They knew exactly what we wanted and they really worked with us. Our guests loved the venue and they loved the food and they are still raving about the food.

9 Mar 2018

Friendly and helpful staff, delicious food and flexibility on wine lists made an incredibly special day. A few inevitable hiccups, but the team were keen to resolve. Great atmosphere in beautiful surrounds!

There were some slight communication issues early on in the process but it was all sorted out on the day and it was exactly what we were after. The waiters were friendly and helpful and the food was gobbled down by the guests.
