If you love a high tea experience, then Tea and Niceties would be a splendid place for you to enjoy your tea and the exquisitely prepared snacks and desserts. I love the decor in the restaurant. You can choose your tea from a long tea list and take your time to savour the desserts on the three tier stands.

This is a truly a must to visit, when you are at Mount Tambourine, The setting is divine, The service is great. & the tea is out of this world. you can purchase your favorite to take home. This is an ideal place for a wedding. A little pricey, how ever you have to pay for service like this

The perfectly kitsch but yet sophisticated and authentic high tea! The lighting, the garden, the chairs and the blankets made it feel almost like a fairy tale, we drove past without knowing what to expect and we were very well surprised. Devonshire teas are fantastic! It ended our Sunday afternoon amazingly

It was one of the best high teas we have ever had anywhere else in the world. We were amazed at finding this very "classy" French style cafe in the rain forest area. It should be on everyone's bucket list. The cakes and savouries were to die for.
