Beautiful tearoom! Love the decor and unique tableware. Always a treat to eat here. Thank you for being a vegetarian tearoom! My vegan salad did have some bitter taste but this may have been because I am not accustomed to endives. I suppose I could have been warned about the endives. The creamy vegan tahini dressing was delicious. The royal afternoon tea menu was a true treat and absolutely beautiful presentation. Amazing tea selection.
Très bel endroit avec beaucoup de cachet. Je le recommande.
Will definitely be back. A lovely atmosphere, great meal, and the service was marvelous. Thank you!
We had a lovely time celebrating the Royal Wedding with your fabulous afternoon tea! The service was excellent and the food was delicious.
A lovely spot to enjoy a special occasion
Every time my mother comes to visit we do High Tea. This time we went to Venus Sophia. It was absolutely wonderful. Amazing tea, food and service. We will be back for sure. Thank you for making our day special and delicious.
A beautiful and delicious afternoon tea!
