    The experience of tea at Butchart Gardens is a must for locals and visitors alike. The dining room is beautiful and elegant. The scones and desserts were delicious. The sandwiches for me were good; however, think only one fish choice is plenty and another non-meat selection would be tastier. I can't say enough good about the service from Erazzah (apologies if I misspelled) as it was outstanding. He was attentive, polite, efficient, and gracious. His service really took the experience to the highest level so thank you.

    Best tea experience yet! The place is absolutely beautiful. My friend and I wanted to cry it was all so perfect. Cheaper than other places, but you do have to buy a ticket into the garden to enjoy the tea experience, but the garden is SO worth it!!!

    Great place for high tea in Victoria, BC, Canada. The tea was wonderful, I drank my whole pot full. The views from the tea room were spectacular and the food was very good. It was a great place to celebrate my niece's birthday.
