Wow! What a treat it was indulging into the most delectable High Tea in the beautiful and grand setting at the Vista Bar and Lounge, One & Only Resort at the V&A Waterfront. The One & Only’s indulgent Afternoon Tea is synonymous with all things deliciously decadent and it will certainly not disappoint the sweetest tooth. Hubby and I decided to try a new a date outing idea and indulge in some High Tea, and it was perfection. A lovely way to connect in sweet heaven.
Ensure to book as you will have your details checked on arrival at the Hotel entrance to be allowed into the car park. Once you have been validated you will be directed to the basement parking and then directed to the lifts. Once in the building we were warmly greeted by the hostess and directed to our table. The double volume lounge is certainly quite opulent with magnificent views of our beloved Table Mountain through full-length glass windows and the waterways which surround the two man-made islands that house some of the hotel rooms.
The tea selection is impressive with a selection of 25 teas to suit all tastes. I chose the Strawberry and Vanilla and it was perfectly suited to my taste, and not too sweet. Hubby enjoyed a Japanese style green tea. Speciality coffees are available too.
The afternoon sweet and savoury table is setup buffet style, so you can eat as much as you like 🙂 There is a scrumptious and indulgent selection of Gourmet caramel and chocolate and gold leaf éclairs, the BEST macaroons in the WORLD, panacotta, passion fruit slices, baked vanilla bean cheesecake, meringues, homemade marshmallows, freshly baked scones, the BEST toffees I have ever tasted wrapped in paper like a sweet, to name a few.
Master patisserie Kyle Hickman and his team create a series of inspired sweet and savoury delights. The classic French art of patisserie is perfected with a touch of One & Only magic. To balance the sweet there is a selection of appetising savoury canapés too.
If you are Gluten Free you are in for the treat of your life. Take a look at this delicious Gluten Free sweet plate!
It was truly heaven, one of those very special memories that bring a smile to my face. Hubby and I had such fun together. Thank you One & Only for an amazing experience, it was truly delicious. We will definitely be returning 🙂
Themed Afternoon Teas are available on the first Saturday of each month.
