Prive Botanic Gardens

Prive Botanic Gardens is the newest Singapore Botanic Gardens restaurant. It opened in early 2022, just in time for Chinese New Year. It takes over the space previously occupied by Casa Verde, but they have spruced up the place and reconfigured the seating arrangements. There is still a small air-conditioned indoor dining space as well as a large outdoor area.

Botanico at the Garage

The building known as The Garage used to be a garage of the former University of Singapore campus. It was converted into a place for two more Botanic Garden restaurants in 2017. A casual cafe, Bee’s Knees, takes up the ground floor. More serious dining takes place in the Botanico restaurant upstairs. The entrance to Botanico is at the top of a narrow flight of steps at the left end of the  building.

Botanico at the Garage

Botanico serves “contemporary European cuisine with Asian inflections”. There is an indoor dining space and an outdoor terrace and bar. We can imagine that the combined restaurant and bar can be a scenic venue for weddings and social events. Here is a picture of a sample Botanico Dinner menu (Feb 2022). You can read about our visit to Botanico here.

Bees Knees

Bee's Knees Botanic Gardens

Bee’s Knees is located on the ground floor of The Garage. Most of its tables are out in the open, under the big umbrellas. There is a small air-conditioned space. What we find most interesting at this little Singapore Botanic Gardens cafe are their picnic box options and the reasonably priced wine selection. You can read about our visit to Bee’s Knees here.
