The service was fantastic. Plenty of food for all.

We have been to High Tea at the Stamford before and really enjoyed it but not this time. This time there appeared to be a lot of cost cutting. The sandwiches were not fresh and there were not enough of them. I'm not a sweet eater and prefer the savoury options and in previous visits when we requested extra sandwiches we received them. This time our request was refused. It's a lot of money to pay for a very ordinary experience. We won't be coming back. Our waitress was delightful. She tried very hard to give us a good experience.

We were really disappointed by the experience. There was very little food and no atmosphere at all. I would say the food was average. After spending $225 I would have expected more. Will not return.

We did the High Tea and the put us in the Lobby walk way. The bread was soggy and the chicken wrap had gristle in it. The desert were nice though and the presentation was ok. The staff were amazing and tried their best to accommodate our discomfort. Would not recommend it for High tea The alfresco area had live music and was very nice though. This was where we should have been seated.

I booked afternoon tea and was expecting to be sitting outside overlooking the water. I also thought we would have one sweet each of the top tray not have to share the selection at the top. we have been to a lot of high teas in the UK and abroad and felt this was fairly average.

We had an absolutely fabulous time for a 60 th birthday celebration. Everything was impeccable. Will be retuning with 88 year old mother for a Christmas treat. Thank you very much for a memorable experience.

Good selection and delicious food though was bit disappointed there wasn't one of each sweet option per person for the price, when there was for the savoury elements

Lobby High Tea $49pp

Stamford Plaza Brisbane Hotel’s Spirit of Queensland Lobby High Tea is an elegant, refined and quintessential Queensland indulgence. Inspired by Queensland and Australian tastes, the High Tea menu incorporates flavours hailing from the red soil outback to coastal beachfronts. The Essence of Queensland entremets was prepared by the hotel’s Pastry Chefs and presented to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II during her most recent visit to Brisbane. We know this Brisbane high tea experience will become a must-try for Queensland locals and visitors alike. Price for children is $30pp. Please note that the restaurant will get in touch to arrange full payment prior to your reservation.

About Pav Bar

Pave your way to paradise We do like a bar that has the good sense to warn potential martini drinkers that while James Bond had style, he did not possess enough of said quality to know that a real martini should be stirred, not shaken. If you should beg to differ, never fear: perhaps the equally spy-worthy Vanilla Russian or Chocolate Affair will take your fancy. Pav Bar also knows that their bar clientele have good company and conversation in mind just as much as their desire to enjoy good food. Hence the option of choosing small plates of finger-friendly food designed with sharing and tasting in mind. Hot and cold options include Stamford curry puffs, lamb koftas with tomato sugo, panko-crumbed reef fish with lime alioli and prawn cigars with chilli jam. Yum. Of course you can still enjoy a more substantial meal if you so desire, whether it be from the Singapore-inspired selection that includes laksa, wonton noodle soup or dim sum; or a pasta, risotto, or something from the grill. Conveniently located in the centre of Brisbane in the Stamford Plaza hotel, Pav Bar features a welcoming, French-inspired open-air courtyard complete with statue and fountain. And for the sports-minded, all the big games broadcast on their screen. Best dish: combination laksa.
