Very nice atmosphere but the food was very average and definetely not worth 55€/person. Some staff was very attentive, our waiter though mumbled everything he said- I honestly didn’t understand half of it and had to ask serveral Times until I did, he didn’t explain which different options of afternoon tea we had (champagne or no champagne). Overall it was a nice experience but I wouldn’t come back or recommend it.

Really enjoyed our champagne afternoon tea. Food was lovely, getting gluten free option for my husband was no problem and you can have endless cups of tea or coffee. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and attentive but not obtrusive so well trained.

Good service & nice food but on balance too expensive. €50/ head for two courses and 1 drink. Steaks were v dear, come on, at least include a side with your mains. Oh, skip the spag bowl.

I’ve had afternoon tea several times but in recent occasions I felt the quality has diminished. The chairs had not been cleaned after previous guests and were full of crumbs which I brushed offf myself. Quality of food and pastries was average and have not been updated in several years. Crockery was also looking a little worn.

Amazing afternoon tea. I have travelled near and far to different fancy afternoon teas including the ritz and these were the nicest sandwiches I’ve ever had.The service was amazing although for the price I thought they could have brought out a wee macaroon or a slice of cake the way other places do as this was by far the most expensive afternoon tea but food was superb.

Beautiful hotel and restaurant. Lovely staff but they disappear quickly, I think the afternoon tea was understaffed. But other than that it was amazing and me and my partner will be returning! Thanks for a lovely experience.

Visited the hotel on 10.02.19. Excellent afternoon- second visit and the staff and service were exceptional! I would thoroughly recommend anyone visiting Dublin to book and received the high standard service from the Westbury. Don't hesitate to make the booking.

It's been a long time since my wife and I enjoyed service, attention and quite simply plain good manners such as we received on our visit to the Gallery. Every member of staff we met contributed to a wonderful afternoons experience. As the original photographer to the Westbury I got a nostalgic burst of pride just being there. Thanks to all concerned.

My sincere thanks for a lovely afternoon at the gallery. Myself & my husband were there to wrap up my 30th birthday celebration with a nice champagne afternoon tea, the birthday cake was a lovely touch and the service was superb. Special thanks to the maître d'hôtel who really looked after us. Lovely.

I felt that this was an experience for adults. I have an infant that I left at home for that reason. Unfortunately we were seated between two tables that had babies and it tainted the experience. As a mother I understand that families are entitled to be there, but perhaps there could be an adult only seating area for parties like myself who wanted to have some “quiet time”. Staff were wonderful, food beautifully presented but as one of the most expensive afternoon teas in Dublin I would have expected larger portions. However, everything was delicious.

What an amazing afternoon!!! Firstly I would like to compliment all of the staff, my whole experience in dealing with the Westbury was excellent. I had received a voucher which I left to last minute to use and when I contacted hotel to ask if I could extend it was no problem at all and staff on phone were so kind and helpful. I actually extended it twice again it was no problem and staff so lovely when I enquired. From the first phone call to book through to the actual day of reservation I cannot commend your staff enough. Each and every one were so friendly helpful, professional and helped to create an amazing atmosphere in hotel. So thank you to each and everyone my only regret us that I didn't get any names throughout but hopefully you can compliment all staff that were there on the day. The food was fantastic and what a treat afternoon tea is, plenty of food and we even left with a doggy bag. I would highly recommend afternoon tea at the Westbury and hopefully will get to return again some day.

We had afternoon tea. Honestly I found this way overpriced. €110 for a few tiny sandwiches and average cakes is ridiculous. The server didn't even know what one of the cakes was. I was told "French breast". I asked what's a French breast but the reply was I don't know. The bread for the sandwiches was hard. I have fresher bread in my own bread bin. We had to constantly look around for service to order teas and coffees. I made a special request as we were celebrating a birthday but this was forgotten about. As this was a gift I didn't complain at the time. The place itself is beautiful so can't complain on that front. I was so looking forward to it but was utterly disappointed.

The nicest afternoon tea I have had in Dublin to date. The service was excellent. The food was delicious and we were constantly offered more sandwiches, scones, tea, coffee etc. The ambience was lovely too. Myself and my four friends had a lovely afternoon.

Waited quite a while for champagne, then it arrived along with the tea. Service during the tea was poor, had to request refills. However waiting staff were all very pleasant. Did not feel it was value for money.

We had a fantastic day celebrating a friend’s birthday. We even stayed on for cocktails after our afternoon tea and there was absolutely no hurry to leave the table! One small thing, it would be good to get rid of the plastic straws...

The place is lovely, the food was delicious with a great selection of both sandwiches and petits fours. There is a big selection of teas as well. The staff was very nice, however the service was pretty long. Our booking was at 16:30 (rush hour), it took about 10 minutes to have our table ready, then about 15 minutes to have someone to take our order, and we have been served at 17:30 only. Other than that, I’d recommend this afternoon tea!
