We were in Georgetown for the day as a port of call on a cruise. We walked around the city all morning, then enjoyed a proper afternoon tea at the posh E&O Hotel, in the 1885 restaurant. It is very comfortable, relaxing, and the service is unassuming and exact. The afternoon tea is very good, as you would expect from a British-inspired hotel, with tea sandwiches, scones, and a beautiful dessert selection. Worth a visit to get out of the heat of Georgetown, enjoy a proper tea and relax.

Lovely place in a historical hotel. They went the whole nine yards with plush furniture, a pianist, soft carpets and a stylish, traditional continental menu with such classics as Foie Gras, Chateaubriand, lamb, etc etc. Very comprehensive wine list and 5-star service with a smile. We loved it.

This place is 10 out of 10. Maitre'D straight out of the European service rule book. Food first class, plates decorated superb;y, and quality of cooking and ingredients is top. Inside the Easter Oriental hotel, but worth the trek from the tourist beaches.
