It was a lovely experience. The food was quite a bit richer than we are used to as well as the amount of sweet items. Glad to have tried it.
It was a very relaxing afternoon tea. The fall gardens were stunning
Awesome place, tasty food! Definitely worth visiting!
Everything about the high tea was super. The food at Butchart's is always very good and this did not disappoint any of us. Nice to walk around the grounds first and then to come into a warm room with a fireplace.
It was such a pleasant experience. The service and ambience were outstanding. Salmon and cucumber sandwiches were delicious and fresh.
Great time for afternoon tea! Service was exceptional and food & teas were delicious!
The food was wonderful, the atmosphere was great. Overall I'd recommend this experience to everyone that's around!
This high tea was 5 stars for me. The tea selection was interesting and it is a nice big pot. I was with 2 other people; at the suggestion of the waitress we each ordered different flavors of tea and were able to share with the table. The food was delicious! It does not look like a lot but we were all full before we got to dessert! I highly recommend this experience for everyone!
Good ambiance, good food, amazing view.
We enjoyed our meal a lot.
A wonderful afternoon tea! Impeccable service, lovely savouries and pastries. Good value for money.
Afternoon tea at Butchart Gardens Restaurant is a delightful experience. The setting is gorgeous, service is stellar and the food is delicious.
Couldn't be more pleased with our visit for tea. The quality and quantity of the food was excellent, as was the service.
If all you want is tea however, be mindful that you must pay for admission to the garden as well ($30+) which increases the cost for your outing, making the price nearly at par with the Empress.
However, if you're interested in working up an appetite spending an hour or two walking through an impeccably curated garden before tea, the value is incredible.
We arrived 5 min early at the dinning room and were quickly greeted and our reservation confirmed, we were place in a nice table by a window with an exceptional view. Service was outstanding and we enjoyed every minute of it.
We had afternoon tea and sat outside on the covered deck. The food was delicious, service excellent and the ambience was stunning!!
We arrived a little early after expiring the beautiful gardens and our request to dine a little earlier was accommodated. Shay was our server and he was excellent. Food was delicious however we were so full after the sandwiches we had to take our sweets home. They were delicious even the next day. Highly recommend the Butchard experience.
As it was a beautiful day we were able to sit outside on the verandah with lovely garden views.
Our afternoon tea was excellent - had to have a box for items we couldn't manage.
Everything was delicious, made fresh, and presented beautifully. One left feeling satisfied as a light meal. Truly delightful experience in a solarium type room complete with linen and silver.
It’s an experience. The food is tasty and is all small bites. I’m not a tea drinker and would have preferred coffee but tea is the only option. The dining room is lovely with views of the gardens. It just isn’t quite worth the price.
This is the highlight of our trip to Victoria. Elizabeth was a delight and represents the Butchart brand very well. A must visit for anyone going to YYJ
Enjoyed the vegan afternoon tea outside on the veranda. It was delicious. Service was excellent. Location is exceptional.
A wonderful way to spend time at the garden, traditional high noon tea.
We had the vegetarian option with smoked salmon included and loved it!
A. Beautiful setting with excellent food. Wait staff were well trained and served the meal with panache. Thanks
Far better tea, service, ambience than the Empress -- at a much better price! Melissa's delightful and informative service of the delicious tea and unique array of delicacies was superb.
Don't miss the delightful way to take a break while enjoying the beautiful Butchart Gardens!
The 4 of us totally enjoyed our afternoon tea. The food and tea were delicious. The rooms are so lovely you immediately feel you are in another era. Service was perfect. My husband had the dairy free tea which was a great option to have. We ordered it in advance. If you are going to the Butchart Gardens make your reservation for tea as much in advance as you can.
Beautiful Afternoon Tea served on porch of orginal owners home overlooking gorgeous gardens!!! Server was wonderful!! Even the weather co-operated! Could sit it there & have leisurely lunch wigs slight breeze.
Lovely day to stroll in the garden and enjoy afternoon tea.
Very elegant and tasty. I recommend the experience
It was wonderful, everyone at the table had a great time. Seeing the gardens and ending off with high tea is very enjoyable.
Wonderful service, treats and views
I fulfilled one item on my bucket list, afternoon tea at the Buchart Garden Dining Room. Service was the best and most obliging that I have ever had. I can’t say enough about their accommodation to my dining needs. The chef and staff prepared an exquisite and tasty meal. The tarragon tart was my favourite!
I can’t say thank you enough to the staff. I had a wonderfully decadent and restful afternoon. Thank you so much!
Had a really nice time and the food and setting was great. The only issue was there a lot of wasps out on the deck
We had a very enjoyable morning at the Butchart Gardens that we capped off with a
wonderful afternoon tea at the Dining room. Excellent attentive service with delicious
sweet and savoury items. This was a great way to cap off a beautiful morning
Had a wonderful high tea. Our server was excellent- very attentive and personable. The food and the tea were delicious and nicely presented!
My third time there this year, can hardly wait to come again
Loved the afternoon tea! Food and service were great. Couldn't beat the view out the window! Just a lovely experience.
We travelled from our of province for a week, so of course we had to stop off at Buchart Gardens and enjoy an afternoon tea in The Dining Room. The service was amazing, the tea was wonderful, the food was alright. We enjoyed the trifle a lot, the sandwiches were mediocre, the bread didn’t seem fresh, It was a bit dry, the combinations of fillings offered were decent but nothing incredible. We really enjoyed the quiche, sausage roll and the scones were amazing! Overall it’s a very pricy afternoon tea, I don’t feel the value for $100 for 2 is really worth it. I would say if you never experienced it before, you would have to try once but it’s not something, we would do again.
A lovely table overlooking the private garden. Food was delicious with generous portions. Lots to take home. A very fun and unique experience.
Beautiful inside the dining room, and the afternoon tea is everything you could possibly want. Bring your appetite, because there is a lot of delectable food!
