Best dégustation: Restaurant Botanic
The distance from plant to plate is measured in metres at this elegant fine-dining spot nestled in the leafy Botanic Garden. Leaves, herbs and more unusual botanicals plucked from the lush surrounds form the basis of a spectacular dining experience that encourages you to forget the outside world. Expect to spend at least four hours navigating unforgettable dishes in a faultless distillation of place and time that delivers such singular ingredients as fallen bunya bunya branches or shiitake-flavoured fudge.
