    The area for afternoon tea is beautiful and we were sat right by the window. Service was very good overall. The tea itself was nice but not amazing. A lot of sweet items- would be better with less sweet and more savoury. No butter given with the scones and took a while to come out. The children's ones I expected more child friendly but was just basically the same as the adults with the scones changed for croissants. Overall though a lovely experience

    I thought the food was very poor value for money. Also, our sandwiches were not fresh. For €53 I expected more.

    Table we got was far too low for the couch we were sitting on. Asked to be moved to table where view and setting was better . Told it was booked but no one actually came to that table for the duration of our stay. Had to ask for more tea 3 times left waiting then 2 came together. Very disappointing all round considering we’ve been before

    Have been to Afternoon Tea several here and have loved it. Unfortunately this visit was disappointing. We were forgotten on numerous occasions after placing drink orders. One staff member was very rude. Price has gone up significantly. Overall we left disappointed.

    Lovely setting and service - but felt the sandwiches were a little dry and standard - for the price I would have expected something freshly made. That being said, the scones were lovely and fresh.

    We had an afternoon tea. The atmosphere is nice and elegant. However, the food was simply not great. Cakes tasted like … when you go to a buffet you have a many selections of average cakes. The little sandwich bread were dry. It is quite expensive for an afternoon tea and it was disappointing. Their tea selection is nice and most of the staff was kind as well. I won’t recommend it. Sorry. 😑

    My mom and I had afternoon tea at the Sugar Loaf Lounge, and all of our expectations were met and exceeded. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the food was delicious, and we got to drink as much tea as wanted. The tea selection was excellent, and the teas we tried were delicious, with great recommendations by our waiter. The next time I find myself in Ireland, I would definitely have afternoon tea at the Sugar Loaf Lounge again.

    We had afternoon tea, the service was incredibly slow, we had to repeatedly remind staff of missing items, and the need for refills of water and tea. The food was nice but not what you expect for a 5 star afternoon tea, really missed the mark on a lot of items.

    I am gluten intollerent and at the time of placing my order, there was insufficient smoken salmon. The waitress was to return with one more portion, but didn't. As I was a guest of someone I felt too awkard to chase it up with the waitress. Otherwise it was lovely.

    Brought my mam for afternoon tea for a treat for her birthday. We had been here Christmas week also and it was just as enjoyable. Staff are so attentive and friendly. So helpful. We were not able to eat all desserts so they boxed them up for us to take home. Looking forward to our next visit

    We waited almost an hour for our bottle of wine ( despite reminding staff atleast 3 times ), then they came with 2 glasses of wine instead of a bottle, the staff were polite however they never apologised for the slow poor service but did give the glasses of wine complimentary .. it is lovely to have a live pianist however it was very loud and left it very hard to have a conversation in lobby .. I don’t normally complain but the service was very slow and not at all 5 star more like 2 star. It was evident that the staff were poorly trained. It’s a real shame.
