We went for high tea just before Christmas. The Phoenician was decked out, the staff was cheerful and the setting was a knockout. We were seated right next to the windows which was great. The hostess was extremely nice and we started with two orders of herbal tea. While the tea steeped, we chatted. We were surprised at the lack... More

Just happened to walk by at "Afternoon Tea" time. We decided to join and it was great. Wide choice of finger foods, deserts, etc. You will be get your fill. Best for birthdays, daughters, women / girls day out, etc. With that said, my wife and I really enjoyed it as well. Would do it again!
