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

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.

Three of us enjoyed the experience of High Tea for the first time. The decor along with a view of the ocean was fabulous. $32.00 each. Tea was served in individual China teapots and cups, that reminded me of the ones my grandmother had in her cupboard for "special guests or if the queen ever visited". We all had a... More

We walked in for breakfast without a reservation as a party of 6. I do not recommend this!!! They were unable to seat us together, and they acted like they were slammed, (even though they only had 1 table in use). The hostess actually said she needed to check with someone to see if we could be seated. She then... More

When planning our girl’s weekend in Victoria, afternoon tea was at the top of our list. We were staying at the Coast Victoria Harbourside Hotel and the Gatsby Mansion is just a short walk away, so we arrived a bit early. After chatting with one of the staff, we took a short walk around the grounds, which are beautifully done.... More
