Named after the year of the venerable monastery’s foundation, the Botanic’s stargazing 1238 Restaurant is set in a perfectly peerless location: taking up an entire façade of the inner courtyard of the Monastery Garden, a modern conservatory provides an impeccable architectural foil for the Botanic’s historic building fabric. The garden’s serenity adds to the unruffled dining experience and peaceful ambience, while the elegant interior exudes a sense of restrained luxury.
The boundary between inner and outer worlds is blurred …
It’s the heart of the Botanic.
In a bustling city centre.
