We had an impromptu tea with our family at the #One&Only. We didn't book their high tea, but we were accommodated and treated to their utmost outstanding service never the less. All I can say is, MUST visit. Shandre is possibly the best waitress ever! The tea was outstanding quality! The location is of course unbeatable being at Cape Town...
