Botanist celebrates harmony with nature, in an environment that is as rich and diverse as the terroir it represents. The experience reflects a new Pacific Northwest, one that has always been here, just waiting to be discovered.

Helmed by Botanist Executive Chef Hector Laguna, the menu represents the abundant botany of British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest, where ingredients sourced from their natural landscape are coupled with contemporary techniques; designed to showcase the best version of themselves. The menu highlights regionally inspired produce rooted from the soil of the northwest, sustainably sourced seafood from our oceans, and organic agricultural methods from backyard farmers and suppliers.

Located in the heart of Coal Harbour inside Fairmont Pacific Rim, the inviting space offers four distinct areas with their own robust personalities; a bar, garden, dining room and lounge – all inspired by the principals of botany.
