High Tea at the Alibi- Ovolo
Inspiring space, Rebecca was outstanding, personable and fun and couldn't do enough for us. We enjoyed our high tea so much that we went for a walk and came back for the degustation for dinner. Very appreciative for making us feel so special and at ease in trying times. We'll be back as soon as soon as we can. Stay safe!
Food was nice but not filling at all, very much a snack instead of a lunch-type experience. Ambiance was beautiful and it was quiet enough to actually talk! Wait staff were lovely but service was shocking in the sense that every time we wanted the wait staff we would have to send someone from our table to the main counter... this happened throughout the entire high tea. Some of the flavours in the food didn’t go too well together and as a result we weren’t able to finish all of it. It was quite nice and I would go back however only in hopes that the wait staff would be way more attentive.
Great food, and wonderful ambience! Definitely recommend.
I’m glad I chose Alibi as the venue to celebrate my bday. My friends loved it and will also recommend this experience to their other friends. From the food, tea, coffee, service, the ambience....it did not disappoint. Cheers to you guys! Can’t wait to go back.
Too expensive for too little food. The sweets were too sweet, the savoury food was great but not enough. There were two sweets that tasted just horrible, one dry and the other salty and bitter. Not worth the money at all.
Fantastic and delicious vegan high tea. Highly recommend.
Hi Petra, Thanks for choosing us for your High Tea and thank you for taking the time to write us this lovely review! We hope to see you again soon. Warm regards, Katherine and the Alibi Team
Yes because i have had it before and it was amazing. But the menu this time was very disappointing.
Amazing! Great price for delicious high tea. Amazing range of different teas. Beautiful space. One of my friends is coeliac, and they catered perfectly and were so accommodating. Will be back.
High tea at Alibi is sensational. The food is absolutely delicious, sparkling wine just right. The service was impeccable and discreet. A very relaxing and enjoyable birthday treat. Would certainly recommend this to friends
The service is always first class and the food is so devine - Thank You
The service was friendly and down to earth. Food portion was just right. I was very happy with my experience.
Very good location and interior. Food is just excellent. Best vegan deserts I've ever tasted. Will surely be back.
Really amazing food and aesthetic location. You wouldn’t know the cream-based are vegan; they taste so close to the real thing.
Great atmosphere, lovely food and wine. Plant based high tea was enjoyed by the whole party
Honestly one of the best times I’ve ever had out in Sydney. We had the high tea on a Saturday and it was quiet, but not so quiet that we felt awkward being there.
The food was some of the best vegan food I’ve ever had, I don’t know how you cream a black sesame seed but OMFG. How TF is vegan berry cheesecake better than one made with dairy? I don’t know how it’s done, must be some kind of mixture of witchcraft and ridiculous skill.
If you are looking to convert somebody to the joys of plant based food this is the place, the only downside is that all other food is forever ruined because it will never measure up.
The service was just so lovey as well, we were so well looked after! Attentive but not so attentive that you get annoyed, just perfect.
The quality of the food has changed my opinion of vegan food. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
Overall a great experience.
The place is beautiful! Food is delicious but i would like more of it!
A beautiful vegan high tea experience in an incredibly decorated setting.
we loved it here, what a good way to spend a gloomy day off :). I booked this as a surprise and we enjoyed it so much that we will be planning more cute surprises like this!
It was delightful. Loved how different the high tea was.
I liked it but really missed scones... the chocolate and purple tart was epic tho
Beautifully presented, great tasting food, choices for drinks for those who preferred non-alcoholic alternatives, really bottomless tea - we were able to taste multiple teas. Great ambience and lovely courteous staff. We will be back to try the a la carte menu.
Myself and a friend had the vegan plant based high tea. Was a lovely setting - lots of little nooks to dine in, so you had your own privacy. Great selection of tea. The high tea itself was lovely - sweet and savoury and all items were quite different to one another which I liked. We also had the choice of a mocktail in place of the rosé. All round our experience felt opulent.
Lovely relaxed venue catered to vegans which is awesome! Unlimited tea and coffee is great as well, had a chance to try all different blends.
It was lovely. The ambiance was great. It was comfy and relaxing and the decor made it feel like outdoors was indoors. Service was very friendly and helpful, but slightly inattentive. The food was beautiful, but there wasn't quite enough of it to be value for money. Music was a tad too loud for easy conversation.
The food was amazing, the service outstanding and the ambient/location was great.
The only negative were the portions, I was expecting more food for the price we paid.
Overall great experience and recommended!
Delicious vegan cakes and savoury treats. Nice selection of teas and coffees
We went for the vegan high tea and it was a special and highly enjoyable experience. The food was excellent, as was the service. Will do it again soon.
The hotel looks fantastic and we loved the look of everything! The staff were so helpful and polite and attentive. The food was delicious BUT for $65 per person I would have expected more per person - more savoury type food or even sandwiches to fill you up a bit more, or scones or both. We left feeling hungry unfortunately so wouldn’t go back, despite the fact we loved the place, staff AND food (even though it wasn’t enough)
Beautiful and tasty vegan food. Any Sydney spider should come and experience this amazing vegan creation.
My daughter and I had High Tea at Alibi as a pre-Christmas treat as she was going to be away. The service was great, food exceptional and surroundings unique. I would thoroughly recommend an afternoon in these glorious surrounds with little hubs of privacy in every corner. Wonderful!
Accomodating, comfortable and relaxing. Waitress was so kind and lovely. Food was impeccable and love the tea and mocktail variety. So creative
I took my mum out for high tea at Ovolo as her Christmas present. The manager, Elizabeth, went above and beyond our expectations. We arrived and there were renovations happening, which got me really worried as it was noisy. Without even mentioning it to Elizabeth, she put us up in the AC/DC suite for our high tea. Mum couldn’t believe it. We had the nicest afternoon ever and the food and the rich selection of teas are to die for! I’ll be coming back for sure. Amazing customer service and excellent food!
The high tea was unique and very tasty. Well displayed and the tea choices were fantastic. The service was not as good as the previous nights dinner which was second to none as the lady serving us was a bit standoffish. But overall we will certainly come again. Love the ambiance.
Excellent and delicious selection of savouries and sweets plus special teas.
Fabulous afternoon tea. So beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. The service was impeccable and the staff were very attentive. Loved it all
Such a wonderful place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The service was incredible and the food was exquisite. It was that good I have booked my husband’s birthday dinner there.
The food is amazing and the service outstanding, the venue is modern and in a great location. You must try the Berry Cheesecake!!!
