    Loved every minute of it, the choc ecliars were the best followed by the chicken sandwiches and the macoroons!! The service was the best and nothing was too much trouble for our hostess but she was never intrusive. The afternoon flew by. The live piano music was the cherry on the top.

    My best friend who I had not seen in a year was out from the UK. I happened to mention this in passing when I made my booking. They remembered. Our experience was exceptional and truly world class.

    We have decided that this will now be our annual tradition!

    What i would change
    If u have a waiter go through the effort of placing your napkin in your lap, it might as be Damask.

    This was my second time at the oyster box high tea and it was deliciousness as usual. I loved the assortment of sweet stuff, cakes, biscuits and desserts as well as the savoury treats. However being a Muslim I would have a liked a larger selection of vegetarian options on the savoury side. I loved the mini canapés and drinks. The setting itself was like sipping tea in the Queens castle. Excellent service and totally worth another visit.

    High tea is overrated for a horrifying price the food is lacklustre and sandwiches were ghastly.

  • (((** 23 May 2017 by Gayle Rey from Ballito

    I booked High Tea for 5 Teens to celebrate a birthday so I never experienced it but they were all super excited about their experience. So thank you for making it so special for them!

    I must add though that I have heard from 2 adult adult friends that they found some of the food to be stale and not up to the quality expected from Oyster Box, especially at the price which I found to be really expensive!! Almost the same price as the curry buffet! Bit too steep to repeat in a hurry.

    My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Oyster Box High Tea. The spread of food was fantastic and everything we tried was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the savoury offerings as well as the scones - very light and delicious! I also enjoyed how much tea we were served as I'm used to getting a tiny teapot of tea, so being able to have at least four cups from one pot was a real treat! I also want to compliment the pianist - very pleasant to listen to and a great range of songs! Overall an awesome dining experience!

    High tea in the Palm court was a wonderful experience. The service was outstanding. The display and variety of food was exceptional. The chocolate cake was the BEST !!! The decor is so elegant with amazing attention to detail. We loved your cat Skabenga! A memorable afternoon. Do go!
