    The High Tea is such a lovely experience. The food was amazing and the cocktails were so delicious. Such a great atmosphere and the view is one of the best in the city. Would definitely recommend.

    Best High tea experience in Sydney, large selection of savoury & desserts and as many cocktails as you want. The wait staff are amazing, always courteous & friendly. Nice vibrant atmosphere with the best views of Sydney harbour. We’ve been to Blu bar & Altitude 3 times now & we always look forward to returning. Well done to everyone at Blu Bar, Altitude & Shangri-La! :)

    The HIgh Tea at the Blu Bar is a real treat. Be sure to book in advance as it is very popular and only available mainly on weekends. You are welcomed with a glass of bubbles, then offered your selection of savoury and sweet treats from a buffet where you serve yourself and can go back as many times as you wish. For drinks, there are fruit cocktails, tea, coffee, water and soft drinks. Just tell the serving staff and they will bring it to you. The view is magnificent of the whole Harbour. This is a place to go to celebrate birthdays or just being with a friend.

    In general it was ok. The atmosphere was so dull! The food was good, but for $100 each I would expect more variety. Views are brilliant of course. Also, open bar as advertised is not open bar. It’s only the 3 cocktails they pre-prepared.

    Although the views are amazing, the atmosphere, comfort and service was lacking. The chairs aren’t particularly comfortable for eating, and the staff were a bit chaotic. It took about 30 mins for a custom mock tail to come out, we constantly had to call staff over to order drinks, and they never cleared any plates or glasses off the tables which kept accumulating and made the experience cluttered and uncomfortable. Expected more from a high end hotel. Also the music sounded like elevator music and out a weird vibe to the place. Food was nice, but for a high tea experience I would recommend elsewhere

    Really poor facilities, bathrooms were awful and the high tea was way too over priced. Table service in a more traditional format is a much nicer way to go and the seating was really awkward. The food was stale and we had to repeatedly ask for more of everything because it wasn't regularly stocked. Very poor overall and would not recommend.

    The High Tea was a wonderful and different experience with the buffet style selection. The views and atmosphere were amazing! The staff were friendly, professional and helpful. My husband and I had a wonderful time and it was a very special birthday treat for myself. I would highly recommend the High Tea experience!

    Views were fabulous. Food was good. Service to organise reservation was terrible. 6 x phone calls required to confirm reservation and payment. And when the party arrived they were told there was no reservation for them!
