Had a lovely time enjoying a delicious afternoon tea with my husband. The food was delicious and the service fantastic. Would certainly recommend it as a fun way to catch up with friends or celebrate a special occasion.

The Windsor is a beautifully appointed Hotel the setting and atmosphere perfect for a family Afternoon Tea.
The service was excellent, they were very attentive to the mother to be, which she very much appreciated.
There was great variety with both the sweet and savoury fare, scones were delish.
Seconds were offered.. more than once.
A must for anyone visiting Melbourne.

My wife and I enjoyed a very excellent afternoon tea last time we were in Melbourne. The service was excellent but understated. No intrusive staff but always on hand as required. The standard of food was of a very high quality and presented in a nice stylish manner.

A nice glass of champagne is offered on sitting down followed by either coffee or tea. As my wife only drinks tea she was very pleased with the good range available of the better quality of teas. I unfortunately are somewhat more plebeian only drinking black coffee. The coffee did not have that bitter taste many coffees I buy have.

The location is very nice opposite the Victorian Parliament house and associated gardens and parks.

My only issue was with my wife when she went outside to the toilet she passed a display cabinet of some very nice costume jewelry. A number of pieces attracted her attention which i was encouraged to buy for her. I must say she does deserve them so I was happy to do so.

Chose The Windsor as it is classed the best High Tea in Melbourne but I was disappointed. We didn't get our tiered tray until we had been there 30 minutes and the quality of the savoury choice was very ordinary. The desert buffet however was very good with a big variety. For the price of $89 I wouldn't recommend.
