Hello beautiful people!
Manchester is a great city – so vibrant, energetic and happy. The people are lovely and there’s always so much to do. One thing I love about Manchester is its incredible variety for places to eat. I am a big fan of food.. I love a good meal! I especially enjoy independent cafes and fancy restaurants, both of which there are lots of in MCR. One of the nicest places I have been to is a high end restaurant/bar called The Botanist.
The ambiance! Oh my. Inside The Botanist is garden/floral/nature themed. Just like the name suggests. It’s absolutely breath-taking. The mix with a vintage yet retro feel just makes it even more special. I am someone who can only truly love a restaurant if the atmosphere is good – just good food doesn’t give it a place in my top 5. Staff are lovely too, always a bonus as customer service is very valuable. They have live music there which is a great touch and can really add to make your evening special.
So now the main thing.. the food! Their menu is not super diverse, but still has a decent variety. The food itself tastes heavenly and they give good size portions. Presentation is also something to look out for, as they serve their food on ‘garden’ themed utensils. Very pleasing to the eye! There is a very large drinks menu with some really good things on there. I have only ever tried a mocktail as I don’t drink alcohol, which tasted delicious.
|The food featured is a selection from their 'deli board' that I ordered - humous, bean salad, salmon & potato salad, which came with a large piece of Turkish flat bread|

Overall, I would suggest that if you’re visiting MCR for a few days or are just looking for a nice place to eat here, try The Botanist. It’s definitely a place to impress. It’s certainly in my top 5 places to eat in MCR (and I have been to a lot of places!) I think I am going to go there to celebrate my birthday too.. haha.. I’ll have been there too often before I leave! I would recommend making a reservation first as they are usually very busy and all booked up!Have you tried The Botanist? Is there anywhere in MCR that you would recommend going to before I leave MCR?
Lotsssssss of yummy and tasty love,
