  • We love going to Abkhazi Garden with visitors. It's a small garden and easy to see at a leisurely pace in an hour or so. There's a very romantic story behind the creation of the garden. Accessible for a rollator. A manual wheelchair or power chair would be more challenging. The Tea room serves delicious light lunches and teas. Tea Room is accessible but the route isn't marked. Washroom isn't fully accessible. It's very easy to get to the Abkhazi Garden from downtown Victoria by car or public transit.
  • What a peaceful, beautiful treasure! I got to visit with two girlfriends. The staff at OLO recommended it. We hadn't even heard of it before. Oh, are we ever glad we did! The hostess at the gate was so kind and gave us a wonderful history lesson. It was my first high tea, and we all had a great time.
  • Lovely hidden garden to visit. Not professionally maintained but that makes it even more charming. They have an amazing collection of shade perennials under their mature rhododendron forest. Definitely worth the $10 suggested admission donation.
  • It's a nice garden with a very friendly attitude, but because it's only the 1 acre, it won't be much of a walking spot and the teahouse is more of a restaurant offering delightful lunch menus as opposed to just tea so that I may drink tea and bask in the garden, like in China.
  • Sweet spot. Delightful tea room. Be sure to read about its history before you go, it will enhance your experience.
