On a recent trip to Niagara On the Lake, we booked Afternoon Tea in The Drawing Room at Prince of Wales Hotel. It was absolutely fabulous! Being mid-week we had The Drawing Room virtually to ourselves, and took the opportunity to wander around and take pictures. Entering the Prince of Wales is like stepping back in time. The service was... More

Absolutely fantastic high tea with my Mom for Mother's day. Booked a seating in advance. Pastries and tea were delightful. Scones were perfectly baked with double devon cream included. Wonderful atmosphere. Dress code in effect.

My friend and I had High Tea and it was AMAZING!!! Grace was our server and she was so helpful. We had never been before and she took the time to explain how everything worked and made some wonderful suggestions that we did try and were very happy with. Grace suggested several teas (we ordered two of her suggestions) and... More

You have at some pint I am sure had tea, had sandwiches, and had scones. But now combine them with fine china, sublime surroundings,knowledgeable and polite staff who are happy to talk, help and advise. Then result? A perfect way to make an already enjoyable experience of Niagara on the lake transform into a complete delight. Take your Mom for... More

This was long-anticipated, and we were not disappointed. Heavenly cream tea was amazing. Friendly staff, namely, Grace, who was very knowledgable and spent time guiding us through all the options. Food tip: we went straight for the warm scones and didn't have enough room to finish the tray. We brought more than half the treats home and it made another... More

My husband and I treat ourselves to High Tea at the Prince of Wales in Niagara on the Lake, Ontario a couple times a year. The atmosphere in the tea room is turn of the century elegant, the tea selection and accompanying food is exceptional and the service is impeccable! From the moment you arrive until you leave, the staff... More

This was my fourth time here in almost 2 years. The first time we went (full price in June 2013) we loved it, we got tons of food, the service was fantastic, and the atmosphere was lovely. Every other time we've gone (2 for 1 in November 2013, full price in June 2014, 2 for 1 in March 2015) we've... More

Looked forward to experiencing high tea in an upscale restaurant . The decor was very tasteful , in a beautiful old hotel. Our server was very nice and attentive . Our disappointment was the tea. It was served just barely hot ! Not only that, but the silver tea pots and serving platters were tarnished . Perhaps being off season... More

I'm a fan of afternoon tea and have eaten it at the ritz in London. I've got to say this is better. The staff are so lovely and helpful. The food - sandwiches, cakes, scones are delicious. It has a gorgeous atmosphere with lovely furniture, paintings and smells delicious. If you are visiting this area it's a must !
