A peaceful and lonely restaurant with good food. They also offer best rooms in town for 90 USD. The location of this hotel Cum restaurant is also prime. Opposite side of the road is club havana. Next to it is Cafe Aroma.

Visited Botanika several times over the holidays while visiting my husband's family. Great food and a fabulous owner!! They also had steady wi-fi which I took advantage of several times to check email. Located in the popular downtown area, there is always someone to meet and enjoy conversation with. Definitely a must visit!!
