My best friend and I enjoyed strolling through the lovely garden, accessible by giving a donation, but neither of us enjoyed the lunch or tea in the Tea Room Restaurant. First of all, even though we made reservations, the service was very poor, and almost non-existent. After waiting for at least 15 minutes after we we seated, we had to... More

It is amazing how a comparatively small place (1 acre) can be turned into a little haven. Considering the story behind it, the garden is very romantic, charming and quiet - no herds of tourists! It gives you the feeling like you are in someone's backyard, but excellently groomed and well-maintained (compliments to the people, who take care of it!).... More

The story of the lovers and the guide book commentary brought us to the site. Not all guidebooks mention this site. The walk through the carefully crafted garden was the Victoria departure event for the couple with us before they took the ferry. A couple hours of quiet and peace. I particularly liked the garden pools and water features set... More

The garden was a breath of fresh air in the city! Read about the romantic historical account of the prince and his lover!

Love visiting Abkhazi Gardens in the spring and summer. Such a lovely garden to walk around and it's worth staying for tea!

We have heard about this garden for years, and finally made it for a visit today. The photos and information about the garden does not do the garden justice. Parking can be limited, but a weekday mid morning or early afternoon visit should work. There is a Teahouse in the garden and it serves tea at 4 pm. We did... More

The home and gardens are accessible from downtown by walking about 45 minutes or a taxi ride of about $15. It's a small home housing a tea room. We didn't stay for tea or lunch as we were pressed for time. The gardens are on a hilly landscape, with lovely rock gardens and trees planted on the property. It's in... More

Found this place by chance and so glad we did. Wonderful little garden with a very nice place for tea or soup afterwards. The story of the Abkhazi's is very interesting and only adds to the experience.

My granddaughter and I have been checking Hi Tea in the different venues of Victoria and this one comes very near top of the list. The service is excellent and Hi Tea is presented almost as good as those at twice the price. We are returning later in the spring when we can enjoy the gardens as well.
