Cafe Del Sol - Your food, your service and the atmosphere and location (which doesn't feel like one's in a shopping centre) is and always will be amazing. Food delicious. Please make smaller portions for ladies. Be back again soon.

Love the Cafe Del Sol Group although I dont love Botanico as much as the original Classico in Olivedale. The food is outstanding but pretty pricey - the environment I found a bit contrived but it is a special night out there's no getting away...More

Description
Cafe del Sol Botanico When the seed of Cafe del Sol was planted many years ago, we nourished, nurtured and tended it with love and pride. As Cafe del Sol grew and blossomed, we, and our guests, grew with it. From the fruit of Cafe del Sol, a new seed took root - Cafe del Sol Botanico. Here, surrounded by the vivid colours and secret language of plants, we celebrate that great healer and teacher - Nature. Here, we celebrate the delightful blend of fine food and fine company. Here, we welcome you and yours - for you are ours too.
