Intimate garden that is tailored to the site superbly. The story of its creation is great too.
Had high tea and lucked out to get the table with the best view. The garden is paid for by donation and people don't pay much, they catch up by making the high tea quite dear, but it's excellent and a unique experience in such a lovely place.

This striking garden was a tranquil and serene respite, tucked in a Victoria neighbourhood. The day I visitied was drizzly, but the garden was even more beautiful in the misty rain and I had a lovely, sumptuous Afternoon Tea in the cozy Teahouse. The afternoon I spent at Abkhazi Gardens was both relaxing and regaling, and a high point of my trip to Victoria.

Walking through these gardens you see the wonder of they're vision. The gardens alone are amazing and I've brought so many visitors here. It's spectacular.

We heard about this place from a posting in our hotel elevator. What a nice treat. The gardens were so peaceful and a joy to walk around. The tea was excellent. Highly recommended

If you're looking for a superb high tea experience overlooking a stunning natural garden this is the place. Not cheap at $55 per person but so far above all others that for a special occasion it's a treat. two kinds of scones blueberry and cheddar chive maple butter checkerboard sandwiches mushroom pate bison jerky maple butter tarts in Nanaimo bars and on and on...oh yeah😋

After reading reviews I was excited to come here for a post wedding brunch. I emailed to book a reservation for 12 adults 3 months ahead of time and was told that I would have to: give a visa to make a reservation, preorder all food (was told not aloud to add anything when we’re there), each guest has to order the same thing, 18% minimum tip, not allowed to stay past 1.5hours (which I don’t mind, but just kind of rude to say). I asked how I could order that far in advance when their lunch menus are seasonal and not the same now as they will be then, and her response was that they are not able to cater to a group of 12 ordering lunch and we would all have to order high teas, because their kitchen is small… I asked if we could preorder 9 afternoon teas, and that way if a few people want something off the lunch menu they can decide day of, and I was told no. This was just poor business by the manager, we were going with a budget of $1000, we’ll be taking our business elsewhere. Oh! And their website says they can cater up to 45 people for sit down dining, apparently not.

It has me wondering if a group of 12 people walk in for a lunch do they just turn them away? The restaurant has 30+ seating so it’s odd that they have that much seating but can’t handle a group of 12 ordering at the same time. Oh well their loss 🤷🏽‍♀️

The gardens are small but beautiful, especially in Spring and Summer when flowers are blooming. The real attraction is the tea house, with amazing service, food and views of the gardens.

The gardens are beautiful, but the tea service was okay and the room felt like we were in a cafeteria and didn't have any ambiance. We would come back to see the gardens, but not the restaurant

A beautiful tucked away garden in Oak Bay. Nice place for a gentle walk around the gardens, and a good place for a special high tea.
