THE BOTANIST – Sloane Square, London 0
May 12, 2009
Firstly, go to the website – isn’t that a gorgeous image!? Well that’s what the menus look like too….
This place was so busy I almost couldn’t get in the door – clearly the bar is an ”it” place to go on a Saturday night in London – anyway, NMP, foodwise – awesome.
I started with the Cashel blue and walnut cheescake, roast pears, slow roasted cherry tomatoes, rocket, oil and balsamic dressing – basically a warm puffy, cheese souflle – death and destruction SOOOOO YUMMY!!! And only £7.50 – so good value….
Then for main I had Avo and Macadamia nut crusted halibut, cherry tomato fondue, cucumber cannelloni – good, good, nice, tasted fine but a few of my friends had the salmon and it was much better. Don’t get me wrong, a nice piece of fish but it read a lot better and far more interesting than it tasted.
Dessert was yummo – Chocolate Sundae – nothing ”new” or special – i.e nothing that was unique – but it was absolutely delicious – really really good, massive and not expensive.
Overall – restaurant was full – happy customers – I’d go back – I’d say very good value –
