  • Beautiful trees Lovely people Great food
  • Lovely staff, beautiful and varied plants and a great bar at the end! Worth a leisurely visit
  • Wonderful gardens with lots of areas to pause and enjoy the amazing plants and flowers. Sharon and Robert are incredibly friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable and a great experience is guaranteed! The variety of plants for the area is incredible. The gift shop is also charming and the the restaurant great. I recommend the Ginger and Lime juice! PS: cover your legs and ankles, the sand flies are merciless!
  • Quite a wonderful place for photoshoots
  • Having not been to Andromeda for several years, I was very happy to visit recently and was impressed by how well maintained the gardens are. There's a nice combination of flowering plants, trees and shrubs. The signage and brochures make getting around the gardens quite easy. The water features (pool and streams) are also well maintained. Loved the views of the coastline. The staff were very friendly and the gift shop had a good selection of souvenirs & gifts. I went a Sunday afternoon when it was very quiet. I imagine that when the tour buses are there in the peak tourist season it can get a bit crowded and perhaps not as enjoyable. I recommend renting a car and going on your own time.
