We walked around the are to see what we could see and then grab a cuppa. The gates were shut and no one around. Assuming it is still closed

Olinda Tea Rooms is now closed. There are a couple of planning applications pinned to the fence, one of which is for a liquor licence so perhaps we'll see another cafe/restaurant here before too long. Sad to see it go as it has a lovely atmosphere. Hopefully new owners will give it the boost it needs.

OTE is a beautiful setting for a special occasion or just to sit quietly with a friend for afternoon tea. The atmosphere is quite something, and the selection of areas to settle in to is great... comfy couches, outside on the balcony, spacious indoor table settings. However, as seems to be the recurring observation here, the service is a bit... More

Huge tea and drinks selection and you get plenty with the high tea. High tea was sandwiches followed by three... More

Made a visit to this restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday, after some difficulty was seated at a table near window in a nice setting. Ordered two glasses of plain orange juice after which we waited for over an hour for any further service. Because the service was so poor we decided to move on, by the way the two... More

There was a group of 10 and we all ordered different meals with them all coming at the same time. The drinks were average price for a restaurant and a good selection. We are going back to try the high tea and we are sure it won't disappoint.

This was a pre-wedding high tea with my bridal party and family members plus a couple of friends. We had the high tea with a couple of gluten free orders. I would suggest informing them if any guest are vegetarian, I forgot. The sandwiches were nice, the cakes, the macaroons - everything really. There was plenty to eat, too much... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant for lunch today as it looked so appealing. We sat down in a sunny spot on the balcony which was lovely. We waited over 20 minutes to order our food, this was fine as the waitress was busy and we understood. We then waited over an hour for our main meals which... More
