A very special afternoon made extra special by high tea at The Windsor. What an indulgence. If in Melbourne do yourself a favour and don't have lunch and do high tea. It's a tradition which is very special

This was a surprise for my wife's 60th birthday and she was doubly surprised when our 6-year old granddaughter and daughter-in-law were awaiting us. The elegance gave the 6-year old "lady" the chance to dress up and we thoroughly enjoyed the overall ambience and delicacies on offer. The staff were helpful and courteous and even surprised the 60-year old with a special birthday treat. A truly lovely experience and would certainly come again.

Had a lovely experience at The Windsor.Beautiful decor, attentive staff and delicious food.My order for vegetarian was well catered for and as my daughter and I were celebrating our birthdays, they even brought out a special birthday cake as an extra . Plenty of food and top ups of food and drink were regulary offered.

Vanessa, our waitress was sparkly and, pleasant. The setting was very elegant. For the price we paid there was insufficient food and we had to request extras of both food and drinks. Needed to remind them on 2-3 times that we had requested/ordered gluten free. A lovely afternoon with my sisters, but definitely not worth $210.00. Wouldn't do it again and wouldn't recommended to others.

Dear Rebecca

Thank you for your review and I was delighted to read you had a lovely afternoon here with your sisters. I am sorry that you felt the afternoon tea was not good value. We are always delighted to offer more food if requested and I understand from your review that this was supplied but I apologise for the fact that you had to remind us about your dietary request of gluten free. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and we shall certainly review our procedures.

Best wishes and kind regards
