Butchart Gardens, Victoria Reviews

  • My daughter took me here for a belated Mother's Day treat. High Tea was wonderful! So many tasty and lovely treats. Quite memorable as we looked outside the window onto the adjoining garden sipping tea and guessing what the next treat would bring. I would definitely make another trek out to Victoria's Butchart Gardens.

  • Best place for High Tea or Afternoon Tea. Pick your tea and enjoy some sandwiches, biscuits, cookies, cakes, fruit, and chocolate. Amazing flavors and impeccable presentation. I ordered the Earl Grey tea. My personal favorite. Tea at Butchart Gardens is alwasy a pleasant and memorable experience.

  • I went for high tea...very delicious...ambiance nice....but $$$.. And If you factor in price of admission...very $$$$. (i have a season pass and with that you get a bit of a discount)

  • Not a bad afternoon tea but total fail on the cream. The most important part of a cream tea is the clotted cream with the scones; they served sweet whipped cream, that tasted like it came out of a spray can. For this price, serve some real clotted or devon cream please, or at least make an effort to do something similar. Not sweetening the cream would be a start.

  • Love it!! Great experience with food and high tea sitting in a quaint garden.
