    We had high tea. We have been sitting for a while and I had to find a waiter and ask if they are going to take our order. The selection was poor, dessert was bad. Small number of sandwiches. Tea from the tea bag. And the wooing price I of $180 with tip for 2! We will never be back there. It’s better to have high tea at the hotels that specialize in this with proper ambiance and service. At least there will be value for the money. I would not recommend this place for high tea to anyone.

    For my first time at Holts Café, my best friend and I were not disappointed. The KFC Cauliflower was outstanding, and so were the truffle fries. The vibes were right, with a DJ playing an eclectic mix of neo-soul, hip-hop and R&B. Additionally, we were able to sample Barbet's various flavours, which was a lovely touch! Will definitely go back.

    Your bartender was kind of strange - I was having lunch with a friend who is a bit bossy - first she asked if there where any eggs on the menu - he said no - we asked what the fish special was and he said crab cakes - so we decided on hamburgers .... she wanted gluten a gluten free bun or no bun at all - he took her order and then walk away and punch her order in - he did it with our food order and then again when she ordered coffee he turned his back and walked away to make her cappuccino - I had to excuse myself and tell him that I also would like a coffee. Her hamburger came with a bun by the way - then a waitress walked by us at the bar with poached eggs on a plate - he explained that that was the crab cakes WTF - crab cakes benedict which has eggs - RIGHT ? Two ladies sat next to us at the bar and one lady ordered a coffee the bartender turned his back and walked away to get her coffee - here girlfriend had to call him out " Excuse me, can I also order a drink? " The young man was pleasant but needs serious training .....

    Not great. Those who've had afternoon tea in England will be disappointed (Bettys, Fortnums or places in Devon etc). Don't even get a slice of cake. Scones were warm but they messed with them (corn flour or something). Should be priced at half of what it is. Better off ordering from the brunch menu for better food and value.

    I think this cafe was understaffed as I have dined for lunch once before and the service was impeccable. Not this time. Long wait times in between receipt of drink or food and had to ask for a salad to be remade as the dressing wasn’t put on the side. I asked for the server to check the glass of wine I was served as I believe the bottle served from was old. I NEVER complain or send food back. When the wine was replaced, she served me a rosé and insisted it was a Sauvignon blanc. Lol!! It was very obviously pink and couldn’t explain how the glass of wine was pink when presenting the white bottle she poured it from. Needless to say I told her not to worry about it, I saw she was busy. But I thought to myself, what if she gave me someone else’s glass of wine? Oh well. I will still dine again though.

    We had the Afternoon Tea Experience. Our server was amazing. He made our visit wonderful. The food was not great. The duck sandwich is overpowered by mayo. The egg one was lovely. The salmon and cream ok. Scones hard not fresh not warm. Desserts just looked like they’d been hanging around a bit too long. For the price I expected more. One of those times when there’s no reason to complain or send it back - it’s just bla. Anyway it’s still a nice experience overall. Great if you like shopping and the decor and ambience is good. Just food is not the centre attraction in my opinion given it’s the same price for the experience as other high end restaurants like Epoch at Ritz Carlton.. So it either needs to lift its game or lower the price or maybe just stick the brunch / lunch etc which it does do well. I will still go there again just not for the experience of afternoon tea.
