Tea House has two floors. Great for rest and lying down comfortably on the top floor and recover from the winter cold, while enjoying one of about 50 different teas with a piece of delicious cake. No rush, no hassles, next to the National Opera House.

This is a two floor mini cafe on the edge of the park. We stopped in out of the cold and ordered tea and coffee, which was brought up to us while we kicked off our shoes and sat down on the circular flat couch upstairs overlooking the beautiful park and river. This was so unique and would definitely be... More

Wish places like this existed in UK parks. Cute, extremely comfortable, friendly. You literally order drinks and/or cake, go upstairs, kick off your shoes and relax on cushions overlooking the beautiful park and river. Wish we had gone more often.

What a lovely little place, I wish there were a few of these places in the UK where I live. If you want a quick service, this isn't for you as the whole point is to be relaxed and just chill while watching the world go by. The selection of teas was outstanding and I settled for a boring but... More

Have a tea-break in a park, outside of the busy old town. Go upstairs, kick off your shoes and enjoy.

Less than 5 minutes walk from the windy streets of old town, you'll find this quaint little tea house. The bottom floor is similar to any other tea or coffee house, but up the sprial staircase, things are much more interesting. On a circular landing over a small fence you'll find mattresses and pillow that sit on the ground facing... More

This is one of the perfect building to open a teahouse. Colours, pillows and everything what I can see is perfect. Tea is good too. But: I'm sad because music is too loud, it's totally from other world (boring radiopop) and really problem if you want to calm and harmonizing yourself. I have not perfect english and I dont know...

The layout of this tea house is what makes it worth a visit. It is nice to sit upstairs on the cushions and floor, especially after a long day of sightseeing, and just look out. The downstairs is open air with tables if you prefer chairs. I was lucky to find this place on a day that was low key... More

I really liked the tea house. You can sit on cushions upstairs (no tables or chairs there) and look at the busy street or the quiet park. They have an enormous choice of tea (3 euros for a small pot) and they also sell nice home-made cookies (36 cents). It seems popular with the locals as well. The staff are... More

We wanted to enjoy the beautiful surroundings whilst sipping a cup of tea - instead mayhem ensued. Very little staff to serve and clear away. Many patrons waiting to be served and trying to figure out if it is self service or not. I can see it must be a lovely place when they are not busy, but they are... More
