Why we love Botanic Gardens Restaurant
Botanic Gardens Restaurant has a green-thumb approved location: right in the heart of Sydney's stunning Royal Botanic Gardens – there are even views of the harbour. Yep, we can almost imagine how beautiful your formal (and informal) happy snaps will be. It ticks the box for heritage feels too, with its original 19th-century façade.
The restaurant is as pretty as its setting, with contemporary interiors – polished floors, colour-pop works of art, high ceilings, a sleek bar – and a separate lounge area. You’ll also find a feature fireplace and wide verandah. These design features have created a versatile space that makes the restaurant suitable for almost any wedding, be it a swanky cocktail affair, sumptuous seated dinner or intimate celebration with your closest friends and family. You’ll also have just as much flexibility when it comes to your menu, with catering options that cover everything from cheese and charcuterie stations to dessert buffets and on-trend share platters.
Once you’re officially hitched, the team at Botanic Gardens Restaurant can serve post-ceremony sparkling wine and canapés on Bennelong Lawn. Your guests will be perfectly happy grazing on the gourmet offerings, and won’t mind you and your bridal party disappearing to the Rose Garden, Herb Pavilion, Lions Gate Lodge or Palm House for your photography tour.
