“Dinner on veranda”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Dinner was OK - waiter a bit rude and rushed. Don't blame him though - lots of noisy and rude tourists surrounded us. Prices exorbitant for what you get. Would not eat there again. Much better places in Victoria to eat.

“High Tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

First time to partake of High Tea in all the years I have been going to Victoria. An experience that should not be missed. Wonderful sandwiches and teas plus desserts. Plus you get to take home a box of 10 tea bags of Empress Tea

“High Tea”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Scone were too crumbly and sweet, sandwiches were average, cakes were average. Very expensive and not value for money, disappointing. Staff were great in the Tea rooms.
