Right before my Christmas vacation, I had the pleasure of meeting up with a friend that I haven't seen in ages. Since we had a lot to catch up on, I decide that afternoon tea would be perfect setting for our gathering. Ever since I had a good experience at Fish House in Stanley Park, I been wanting to try out the afternoon tea at the Sutton Place Hotel. So I made a reservation, and off we went.
Fish House in Stanley Park, it's a 3 tier plate filled with sandwiches and sweets. However there is a difference. At the Fish House, they filled the top plate with scones, where as here you are limited to one only.
Although I had a great time catching up with my friend and enjoying the food, I did find it odd that one of the side of this restaurant is open towards the hallway of Sutton Place hotel. But the decor here is elegant and beautiful and the restaurant itself had a nice warm lighting. The servers were all very helpful and they constantly ask to fill our tea pot with hot water.
Overall, I am definitely satisfied with my dining experience at Fleuri and would certainly recommended to anyone who need a quiet place for a nice relaxing chat. I had a good time there, of course it was made better by sharing it with a good friend.
