I recently went for high tea at QVB. If is very centrally located and the room is lovely. The service was pretty good (although we did arrive before the crowds). We tried both the oriental high tea and the afternoon high tea. I liked the oriental high tea items better as I have a more savory tooth. I would have... More

Overpriced, service slow, left to find own table in a walk way. Eggs at $18.00 consisted of two extremely small luke warm eggs on one small slice of sourdough bread. Better value places around. Steer clear of QVB.

An beautiful venue to have high tea, the food was divine and the staff very attentive and looked amazing in their white coats. With 30 teas to choose from my daughter and I choose the English Breakfast Tea and the traditional morning tea and it was delicious. Could not fault a thing!!

Although we did not have reservations, and the room was full, the maitre d allowed us to wait while he found a place for us. No more than 15 minutes later, we were seated. We chose tea and champagne for the 4 of us. The sandwiches were delectable, the tea was served splendidly, and was so fragrant and fresh. The... More

Went for high tea, ordered our own bottle of champagne rather than the package. The food was fine but nothing outstanding. The staff are attentive.

My gorgeous friend and I had a wonderful experience at the QVB tea room. It's a stunning location with a great atmosphere. We enjoyed rose tea with scrumptious sweets and savoury's. I would definitely recommend this lovely place for an afternoon.

From such a beautiful room I should have expected no less, but man what a room! The chandeliers are enormous and beautiful. There are dining tables and chairs but also lounge style chairs and tables. We were there for lunch and opted not to have the high tea, first mistake. They have a special of the day which both my... More

A girlfriend and I met here for a little 'celebration; and I expected more following a previous visit. We were efficiently led to our table by a gentlemen and all started very well. We ordered the French champagne option and were told that the 'champagne' would be brought along first followed by the rest. In reality, the champagne (piccolo bottles)... More
