Exceptional service for tea. Delicious food. Beautiful setting. Much more quiet than some of the competition, but really well done afternoon tea service at a fair price. We would have done this twice if possible. Everyone enjoyed it. The fresh fruit at the start was a pleasant surprise as well as the chocolate mousse cups. Our server also took our... More

My wife and I wanted to have afternoon tea in Victoria but did not want to pay an arm and a leg. We were on our way back to the Inn on Laurel Point and came across the Gatsby Hotel and Restaurant where they offered afternoon tea. They seated us on the front porch on a lovely afternoon in Victoria.... More

Arriving early at the Huntington Manor and getting no help with our room, we took refuge in the adjacent Gatsby House and enjoyed a lovely light lunch -- a unique Caesar salad and memorable pepper soup. Only regret: we won't have time to do a "high tea" with its long list of delicacies. We did sample the "1837 TWG" tea... More

He has bee telling everyone he talks too how... More

It's the thing to do; Afternoon Tea in Victoria. The price at the Empress is over $60 and I believe we paid $32 per person at Gatsby. It was across the street from our hotel so it was a no brainer when we saw how gorgeous the building is. Sarah was our excellent server. I chose the Creme Caramel tea... More

W're travelling from Vancouver to San Francisco and again back to Vancouver. An amazing experience for Dutch people. We enjoyed two evenings of eating at the Gatsby Mansion restaurant. It was really a feast. The service was really perfect and the food also. Every part of dinner was amazing. The atmosphere here is also excellent. Thanks a lot for your... More

My family had high tea at the Gatsby Mansion. Loved the old wood floors, antiques, and stained glass. The beautiful white building felt like the perfect location for tea. The finger sandwiches, scones and desserts were perfect... and less expensive than Empress

Loved the cozy space and the surroundings. New cook, needs a little more practice I think on cooking salmon.
