A stone’s throw away from Glasgow’s famous Botanical Gardens is another slice of paradise; Botany.

Surrounded by stunning nature and scenery, soak it all in with a plate of something delicious in the venue’s beautiful glasshouse conservatory. The interior, completely bathed in natural light, is furnished and decorated with understated whites and greys; pure and peaceful are two words that come to mind.

The menu ranges from classics like rib-eye steak to chana dal, with all ingredients being seasonal and fresh. There’s something for any mood. Fancy a curry? The Lamb Saag is to die for and if you want to go Italiano, tuck into a plate of our sensational crab linguine.

Now, Botany knows its botanicals. Never have you seen so many gins on offer and with a seasonal cocktail menu, their drinks seriously pack a punch. If you’re feeling fizz, relax with a refreshing mimosa or choose from the extensive list of wines on offer.

Don’t be put off when you first enter the bar. We thought it was going to be just pubby. The dining room at the back is light, spacious, modern and inviting, especially on a cold dark night with the log burner roaring in the corner. There was a large party of 14 already set up, but the space was good enough to absorb sounds and bodies.

Nor was the service impacted by the increasing numbers of customers. Ross was attentive and funny despite the work load.

The food was delicious; we only had appetiser and two mains so can’t comment on the starters etc. The olive bread was good not only for soaking up oil and balsamic but also gravy from my main. We’d have preferred the oil and vinegar on side plates rather than a small ramekin to get at the vinegar. But this is me being picky.

My Confit of Duck with puy lentils and savoy cabbage was delicious; the lentils had a touch of something sweet though that could have come from the bed of shredded savoy cabbage. I did have envious eyes looking at my friend’s Sea Bass baked wrapped in paper with shards of fresh ginger and spring onions. The envy increased when I had a forkful. Isn’t that just life.

All in all a lovely evening. It’s also worth noting they have a folk session once a month so music and food on the menu if you’re lucky and like that sort of thing. We do!

First time trying firsttable.co.uk and The Botany (double firsts) and have to say I wasn’t disappointed with either. Service in the restaurant was slick, and the staff were friendly. Food arrived quickly and portions were more than adequate. We saved nearly £30 by using firsttable, so for £5 it’s a no-brainer!
