Mediocre garden that costs a lot for entry. There are a lot of better options elsewhere.

Very disappointed with the restaurant. Again, extremely pricey. For the cost of the sandwich, you'd expect to be given the option of unbuttered bread for lactose intolerant patrons. I mean the most basic of cafe meals an you cannot have unbuttered bread? Reason from the chef was that all bread were buttered in the morning.... Disgrace for a diner that has a chef. Might as well pick up my sandwich at the petrol station.

If you want a tram ride, there is a $7 cost in addition to the $26 entry fee. Even the Huntington gardens in the US (much larger and better kept) cost less.

Magnificent gardens. Even though it was a showery day we still enjoyed it. Would recommend taking the 40minute "train" around first -extra $7- that way you get to see all the gardens and you can pick which areas you want to walk to as it is Huge! Afterwards you can wander across to the nearby shopping village which is quite quaint

Thought it sounded a bit boring but spent 3 hours wondering around and left wanting more which confirms i was wrong. Highly recommended

Gardens were fantastic, and good activities for kids including ace painting however, a little pricey.
