A flagship restaurant and bar in the bustling restaurant district of Seminyak, Bali. Botanica is the perfect place to step away from the busy streets for long, lazy lunches under the palm trees in their garden oasis, and magical nights in the modern, bright and airy restaurant and bar. Botanica lives up to its name, being redolent with hundreds of unique indigenous plants that populate the open courtyard oasis, bar and dining room.
The modern Australian menu has been designed by award-winning Executive Chef Brenton Banner. Hailing from Melbourne, Chef Brenton has extensive experience working in some of that city’s most notable dining establishments, including George Colombaris’ The Press Club and Circa the Prince, with Chef Matt Wilkinson. Since 2014 Brenton has been the head chef and owner of acclaimed Warrnambool restaurant Pickled Pig, recipient of a coveted The Age Good Food Guide’s Chef’s Hat. At Botanica, Chef Brenton has created an approachable menu that marries the best ethically sourced Balinese and Indonesian ingredients with modern Australian dishes, with a perfectly paired wine list curated from the Vin+ cellars.
Guests can select wine from the Vin+ retail store, however the restaurant and bar’s complete wine list features Bali’s largest range of wines by the glass, and over 100 wines in total. The cocktail list has been created by Chef Brenton and Jane Lindsay using only natural indigenous Indonesian ingredients with deliciously refreshing results. There is a selection of craft beers from Beervania as well as juices, smoothies and mocktails.
