WAS GOOD BUT HAS BEEN CLOSED FOR MORE THAN 12 MONTHS

This has been closed for more than 12 months and no longer serving meals. Was good so do not know what happened. It needs to be removed from the reviews unless it reopens in the future. If so, it can go back on the reviews.

Beautiful tranquil surroundings. We were here for High Tea on Saturday. The food was a high quality and with generous portions.Real cream, real scones. A lovely selection of sandwiches and a vegetarian pick. If any criticism, I'd like a couple more savouries and forfeit a couple of sweets- but that's my taste. The presentation of the first course was unique-... More

The Olinda Tea House is opened once a month for high tea and it is best you check their website on opening days and make a reservation before making your way up the Dandenong Ranges to the beautiful hideout. We were happy to be able to make a reservation for our family. The tea house is beautifully designed and offer... More

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

Booked a high tea for 9 people for mums 50th on Australia Day. Yes, it was busy but service was good, food was wonderful and we didnt feel like we were in the way or disturbing others with our noise. 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.
