  • I went there with a friend on October 2, 2016. My son had gotten married at the Oakbay Beach Resort. We had thought of going to the Empress Hotel but one of the staff at Oakbay suggested Abkhazi Garden for tea. It was only a 5 minute car drive away. We are glad we decided to go.The gardens are beautiful and the tea and treats were great and the 1/3 of the costs! I would recommend it!
  • Among my handful of favourite Victoria gardens. I visit at least monthly because there is always something different to admire in this garden built by two lovers with a fascinating personal history too.
  • Garden is absolutely beautiful. Admission is by donation. There is a tea house if you fancy, but be warned of the cost. You must order some kind of food, and can not split a dish between two people.
  • Wonderful place with amazing afternoon tea. Very courteous and friendly service.
  • Very well put together, a fantastic display of horticulture. Absolutely recommend this place, and i don't even like plants that much lol
