Photosynthesize and re-energise at Botanic. The sunniest, most stylish spot in Christchurch city centre, Botanic is here to satiate your appetite with lean, clean food that nourishes the body and soul.

Any good botanist knows that plenty of natural light is essential. Feel free to stretch your leaves, uncurl your branches and dance in the breeze in their spacious dining room. Summery and minimal, get acquainted with an informal bar stool, cosy up on a bench or head out to the rooftop to their phenomenal garden bar that boasts uninterrupted views of the Avon.

Whatever dining style you have in mind, Botanic’s contemporary reimagining of classic pub food should see you right. If you fancy sharing with loved ones, get a range of sharing plates in and graze on the likes of seared Ōra King salmon fillet, venison carpaccio or crispy cauliflower falafel.

If sharing is not on the agenda, opt for the most divine crispy pork belly with roasted beetroot and mascarpone puree, a luxurious roasted duck Ragu with capers and zesty green peppercorn, or the Hereford eye fillet with duck fat potatoes. Finally, nothing says an opulent supper like a chocolate chiffon layered cake with black berry compote. All your favourite flavours are given the five-star treatment. That’s Botanic.
