You’ll visit as much for its rich history, Edwardian architectural flourishes, and grand style as for its infamous (and infamously pricey) afternoon tea, the latter enjoyed as you gaze at Victoria’s inner harbour. The Raj Colonial Indian-themed Bengal Lounge is a sight, as are harbour views from The VerandaÑgreat for martinis open May to October. A farm-to-table ethos and themed events throughout the year make up for occasionally uneven service.
