Amazing! Great price for delicious high tea. Amazing range of different teas. Beautiful space. One of my friends is coeliac, and they catered perfectly and were so accommodating. Will be back.

Really amazing food and aesthetic location. You wouldn’t know the cream-based are vegan; they taste so close to the real thing.

Honestly one of the best times I’ve ever had out in Sydney. We had the high tea on a Saturday and it was quiet, but not so quiet that we felt awkward being there.

The food was some of the best vegan food I’ve ever had, I don’t know how you cream a black sesame seed but OMFG. How TF is vegan berry cheesecake better than one made with dairy? I don’t know how it’s done, must be some kind of mixture of witchcraft and ridiculous skill.
If you are looking to convert somebody to the joys of plant based food this is the place, the only downside is that all other food is forever ruined because it will never measure up.

The service was just so lovey as well, we were so well looked after! Attentive but not so attentive that you get annoyed, just perfect.

Beautifully presented, great tasting food, choices for drinks for those who preferred non-alcoholic alternatives, really bottomless tea - we were able to taste multiple teas. Great ambience and lovely courteous staff. We will be back to try the a la carte menu.

Myself and a friend had the vegan plant based high tea. Was a lovely setting - lots of little nooks to dine in, so you had your own privacy. Great selection of tea. The high tea itself was lovely - sweet and savoury and all items were quite different to one another which I liked. We also had the choice of a mocktail in place of the rosé. All round our experience felt opulent.

Lovely relaxed venue catered to vegans which is awesome! Unlimited tea and coffee is great as well, had a chance to try all different blends.

It was lovely. The ambiance was great. It was comfy and relaxing and the decor made it feel like outdoors was indoors. Service was very friendly and helpful, but slightly inattentive. The food was beautiful, but there wasn't quite enough of it to be value for money. Music was a tad too loud for easy conversation.

The food was amazing, the service outstanding and the ambient/location was great.
The only negative were the portions, I was expecting more food for the price we paid.
Overall great experience and recommended!

The hotel looks fantastic and we loved the look of everything! The staff were so helpful and polite and attentive. The food was delicious BUT for $65 per person I would have expected more per person - more savoury type food or even sandwiches to fill you up a bit more, or scones or both. We left feeling hungry unfortunately so wouldn’t go back, despite the fact we loved the place, staff AND food (even though it wasn’t enough)

My daughter and I had High Tea at Alibi as a pre-Christmas treat as she was going to be away. The service was great, food exceptional and surroundings unique. I would thoroughly recommend an afternoon in these glorious surrounds with little hubs of privacy in every corner. Wonderful!

I took my mum out for high tea at Ovolo as her Christmas present. The manager, Elizabeth, went above and beyond our expectations. We arrived and there were renovations happening, which got me really worried as it was noisy. Without even mentioning it to Elizabeth, she put us up in the AC/DC suite for our high tea. Mum couldn’t believe it. We had the nicest afternoon ever and the food and the rich selection of teas are to die for! I’ll be coming back for sure. Amazing customer service and excellent food!

The high tea was unique and very tasty. Well displayed and the tea choices were fantastic. The service was not as good as the previous nights dinner which was second to none as the lady serving us was a bit standoffish. But overall we will certainly come again. Love the ambiance.
