Really disappointed in the quality of the food especially given the price tag. Lovely view and good service!

Following our visit to the colourful and immaculate orchid display we were given a table by the window with orchids on the table for lunch. The choice was interesting and the food delicious. Speedy service helped to give us a relaxed lunch. Thank you. I will be back!

I found the Botanical OK and extremely expensive for what it was. For an 'elegant restaurant' in the middle of arguably one of the most beautiful places in London, it lacked character, light and atmosphere. It had a very canteen feel to it, and the only reference to the gorgeous flowers that Kew has, was one orchid on our table. However, if it was a sunny, warm day, the outside tables had the most spectacular view of the Palm house. The food was average, we ordered one Colombian afternoon tea and one vegetarian, (yet two Colombians came) and they were below average for something top market priced. The staff however were excellent, all really friendly and hands on. Overall, a below expectation experience.

Had a lovely time at afternoon tea. The Botanical is a beautiful setting and had a lovely view over the lake.
