Overall Good experience. There was a mixup at the start as no one asked us our food preferences so when they brought out the tray of food I asked which items were vegan. They had to return the tray and do up a new one that had both vegan and non-vegan food. As this was our first experience we didn’t know what to expect so I didn’t know I had to specify the vegan option right away.

Enjoying afternoon tea while kids are skiing ! Great atmosphere and decent taste for the sandwiches and dessert. Good value for the few hours of relaxation with good cup of tea. It is $55.00 per person for the afternoon tea ☕️ menu.

We ordered calamari and bruschetta. The calamari was rubbery and tasted like it was previously frozen from Walmart. The bruschetta was just chopped tomatoes on soggy, over buttered bread. I can do better at home. Service was slow, and we had to ask for napkins. Not happy, won’t be back.

Servers varied in skill. Some extremely attentive and able to anticipate the cadence of the meal, while others served breakfast without the toast or ketchup, which came after the meals was getting cold. This server did not anticipate the need for condiments or cutlery.

The lamb I ordered for the evening meal was extremely tough and so salty it was as if the saltshaker fell on in by mistake.

We went for afternoon tea and it was a once in a lifetime experience. The venue is beautiful, so is the location. Great time! The sandwiches weren't super fresh, as some of the bread was dry. Still delicious but woulnd't do it again for $55 ... clearly overpriced but good to experience if you are going in the area for the first time. The view is magnificent. Staff was very welcoming and courteous.

We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. However even though we had a reservation we were seated at a table in the bar area rather than the main seating area. It was actually very nice to be away from the crowd in the restaurant. We had a nice view and the service and food were great. Just a little weird that we were seated outside the main area.
