We had a lovely afternoon and enjoyed ourselves. Thank you for the thoughtful extra cake for all of us as we were celebrating our birthdays. We will be back 👍

Couldn't fault it. Auckland's best high tea venue I am sure!! Superb food beautifully cooked and presented, excellent choice of T2 teas and anything else I wanted. Lovely staff, very helpful and friendly - went the extra mile to make this a special occasion.

Loved the food here and the selection of tea, the wait staff were really lovely and accommodating (one of the guests had a last min dietary requirement which they accommodated even though they require 24 hours notice) however it took a really long time to get our food (an hour and a half from booking time - even with the unexpected change I wouldn't expect it to take a full hour longer) and several of the girls had issues getting tea refills at certain times during the service. That said they were super lovely and we'll absolutely be back, hopefully the wait time won't be so long next time :)

Amazing! My daughter and I had such a lovely time. Staff were super attentive, food was plentiful and delicious. They even brought out a special cake with a candle for my daughter as it was her birthday. We are currently planning a return visit with friends. Highly recommend!

Lovely welcoming atmosphere and service, with delicious food. We went for high tea for a special occasion and were pleasantly surprised when a cake was brought out. I would highly recommend this restaurant for special events with family or friends.

A couple of slipups with the orders but of little consequence. A glass of wine was served when we ordered a bottle. They also brought an extra entre which was not ordered. Otherwise a most enjoyable meal in excellent surroundings.

Great service and very nice dining environment. Love the tea sets. We love the food too and the gluten free options although my gluten free scones were a bit burnt 😅 We were very full at the end!

Couldn't recommend the high tea more highly, absolutely delicious and the atmosphere was fantastic. Our waiter was one of the best I've ever had, he was polite, attentive and professional. Will definitely be back.

We had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. The dinner was very good and the set menu very good value. The Kaffir lime and coconut dessert presentation wasn't quite what I expected (not as elegant as some other desserts) but really tasty and perfect for after the rich pork dish. The breakfast was the best I have had. Really good home made muesli and perfectly cooked eggs. Good selection.

My wife (ceoliac) and myself were thoroughly impressed with the meals , ambience and service. Really first class and we will return more than once in the future, I am quite sure. Great staff and a great venue. 60 years ago I used to do my banking there.

We really enjoyed the High Tea at your Hotel. The whole experience from the food to service was amazing and the staff went out of their way to make our friend feel extra special for her baby shower. I have already started recommending you to my friends and family. Thanks Diveanne Allin
