    We had a lovely Sunday afternoon. I had asked for a table beside the window and unfortunately that didn't end up being possible-it was a pity. We were right beside the piano and at times it was too loud to have a conversation-we couldn't even hear the waitress at the beginning The food was lovely-although the rhubarb cake didn't seem exactly right. The staff were very friendly although we did spend a lot of time having to catch someone's attention for things we needed.

    Upon arrival we were given a lovely greeting as we went to our seats with a stunning view! We loved the selection of hot beverages and that we could have as much as we liked. The sandwiches came out first which we loved as meant we could savour them and after the cakes. Thank you to the staff for the chocolate plate for the birthday girl too. I felt it was very good value for what we got and highlight was definitely the scones and ham and red pepper tapensade sandwich.

    Exceptional location, service and overall atmosphere, however the food selection and quality left a bit to be desired compare to similar Afternoon Tea offers I've tried in 5 star hotels across Dublin and Ireland. Nice treat but overall not a good value for money.

    Rafik was absolutely amazing. He found out that it was my 50th and my one guest's 21st and made a bit of a fuss over it. It really made me feel very special. I was a little bit disappointed with the fact that on the 7th the Christmas menu still hadn't been changed. After all that is 13 days post Christmas. But overall as per usual the whole experience was wonderful

    We had afternoon tea over the Christmas period and the atmosphere was amazing. The decorations and music gave the space a lovely Christmassy feel without being too overwhelming. The food was good and they catered well for gluten free needs. Initially the service was excellent however as the space got busier we found it difficult to attract the staffs attention and elements of our tea were forgotten until we reminded them.

    Christmas afternoon tea at the Sugar Loaf Lounge was a really special treat. A very relaxed atmosphere, efficient and friendly service, and great attention to detail on the presentation of food. Loved the tea selection, we chose the Hot Toddy (an Assam with winter spices).

    The afternoon tea was very disappointing. The sandwiches were very poor. We had the vegetarian menu. One of the sandwiches was just a small piece of white bread with an olive tapenade spread on it! The scones were very nice and they are the only reason that i gave it two stars. The small cakes were overdone and while they looked great they were far too sugary to eat. Overall very disappointing and certainly not worth €60 each.

    So extremely disappointed in the afternoon Tea. Way over priced for what you got, which was very little @ a cost of €120 for 2 people Would definitely not recommend anyone to go there. It was a special birthday for my friend & they brought out a plate with Happy Birthday written on it & a few sweets , not even a little cake with a candle. I have been to the Shelbourne & Merrion hotel & it is far better The only saving grace was the hotel was beautiful decorated

    Have been here a couple of times for Afternoon Tea with my 2 girls, we try to make it a bit of an annual event. Previously we would have rated our experience very highly, but sadly this year compared to last year's visit we didn't come away with the same feeling of elation and awe. My youngest has the children's menu and was disappointed to find this time that the hot chocolate didn't come with any marshmallows - probably the best part of hot chocolate for kids! ;) Also, despite the price increase, as my older daughter pointed out, they had reduced the savoury selection! When making the booking, had mentioned it was a birthday occasion but this time round didn't get the happy birthday plate with the few chocolates as expected. Not sure if this was because we had done the booking on the website rather than emailing the hotel directly. The staff were still all very friendly and welcoming and I still would recommend it as the setting is just very nice.

    We were never offered extra tea, just the one pot at the start. We were slightly overcharged, should have been €60 + €60 + €25 (child) but we were charged €150.

    Hi, Myself and a friend went for afternoon tea yesterday and we were brought to our seat and put sitting nearly on top of other people having their afternoon tea. We were whispering when talking as there was no privacy. For the price we paid it would have been nice to be relaxed and enjoy it without the people beside us watching every mouthful we took. It was a Tuesday, the place wasn't busy. The lady serving us didn't ask us did we want more tea or like to try a different type. Wasn't happy with it at all and I was really looking forward to it. I had on the booking it was my friends 60th birthday really thought you would have marked the occasion in soke way

    Very disappointing. As a member of your gym for three years. You wouldn’t acknowledge my guests. After paying €500 for cake? Disgusting on your behalf. Your morals and standards are vile. FYI posted on Tripadvisor. Train your staff.
