Price: $38++ per set for 2 persons = Total bill of $44.70 for 2 pax (Items are non-refillable)

They have only 3 miserable selection for Tea - Earl Grey, Jasmine & Chamomile.. Now they do not serve tea in a teapot anymore for Afternoon Tea set. They will just serve you tea in a cup with the tea bag. In this case, how can Lime indicated with refreshing pot of tea in their website???

The items that we ate were all seemed like they were from 1-2 days ago, the tarts were not crispy type, they were moist and tasted like they were not baked freshly type.. Finger sandwiches were also quite bad...

The service here never improve, yet getting worst during afternoon tea time. They will usually put guests at the back area for afternoon tea while their staff were mostly standing at the front either talking in a group or they were more concerned in preparing for the dinner buffet. And when i asked a few questions about the high tea, the staff seemed to be a bit impatient and wanted to leave. The staff here just simply don't bother with guests coming for afternoon tea. And the high tea items were not fresh, quality dropped till the max (Unacceptable)....
I really don't understand with the management at Lime.. Since you're all not interested to serve guests during afternoon tea time, then why bother to launch this high tea to torture your guests stomach and made them feel disappointed leaving Lime. This is the WORST place to have afternoon tea which explains why we were the only table to have high tea there on that day while other hotels were usually full house for high tea on Sat/Sun. Maybe the service for your buffet lunch/dinner is good but no one will come back for your afternoon tea again after first try.. Doesn't mean your afternoon tea prices is cheap & we have to accept such quality & service. I think no matter how much we spent at Lime, hotel restaurants should provide the same level of service & quality at all times.. It's a pity that we can't come back for high tea again with such a nice ambience at Lime....

Antidote at the newly refurbished Fairmont hotel, is a stylish and modern cocktail bar that has recently launched the new afternoon tea daily from 3-5pm.

There're 3 types of afternoon tea set to select from. Antidote Tea ($38++ per person), Oriental Tea ($38++ per person) and Royal Tea ($75++ per person). All the afternoon tea items are the same for these 3 sets except the starter is different. And the Royal Tea set comes with a glass of Champagne which is why it costs so much more...

The afternoon tea set comes with a selection of TWG tea and you can only choose those tea priced at $11. Or you can choose any of the 3 choices of roasted coffee (Cappucino, Macchiato, Latte) Coffee/Tea are refillable! Note: You have to stick with the same choice of tea or coffee for refill.

The starter is the main attraction than the high tea items. I will give full marks for the unique presentation!

The service here was average as the staff were not very attentive, have to try a few times to catch their attention. But they were very polite and made an effort to explain to us what are the high tea items. The latte here was very premium quality, the roasted coffee smells very good! My partner told me this was the BEST latte among so many hotels! So do try their latte when you're there! I would say this is probably 1 of the BEST high tea that you should try!

Decent food with noisy ambience OK Aug 26, 2014

PS. Cafe was opened in 1999 hidden within Projectshop clothing store. But now.. PS. Cafe have 8 branches including PS. Cafe Petit and Chopsuey Cafe.

PS. Big Breakfast ($26++). This big breakfast set supposed to come with beef sausage but i don't like sausage so i requested to change into ham. Both the crispy smoked bacon & ham were very nice but too salty.. The scrambled egg was quite good, just that not fluffy enough compared to Antoinette.. Was quite disappointed that their big breakfast does not come with any complimentary coffee or orange juice like other restaurants/cafes..

 
Overall, service was quite bad. If the host is not at the counter upon your arrival, you have to stand there to wait till the host comes back even though the server staff saw you. The server staff will only come and usher you to a table if the host is still not back after some time. We waited for about 8 mins standing there though there were so many empty tables at that time. I find this service very stupid actually. The staff were all very busy at most of the time during weekend brunch so the attitude on some staff was not very good while some was really nice.
Anyway the food here was quite good with huge portion but at steep prices. You can dine at hotel ambience with such prices actually. The ambience here was very noisy type with many foreigners. I preferred to brunch at a peaceful environment like Antoinette. Probably will try the PS cafe at Palais branch next time. Despite the poor service with steep prices, their business is still super good! The crowd keep come and go non-stop.

Antoinette has launched new menu since Aug 2014 with new increased prices. Click my food blog to see their new full menu!

Love their Antoinette's Breakfast set that costs ($27++) as my choice of egg is Scrambled. Can you see how big is the portion of the egg? I can tell you, this is the BEST Scrambled egg that i had among so many restaurants!!! It was so fluffy and smooth till now i still couldn't forget it... It was cooked very perfectly! Drool.... I don't like sausage so i requested to change into ham. They put cheese atop the ham that tasted so nice! It comes along with Basket of Viennoiseries and a choice of Orange Juice/Coffee/Hot Chocolate.. Wonderful All Day Breakfast Set!

 
Overall the food & dessert at Antoinette was above average quality! Service was quite good when there was not so much crowd in the morning at Palais & Penhas outlet.

Bought the Groupon voucher - $10.90 for Weekend Western Buffet Breakfast (Worth $23.40 per person).

The presentation of the buffet breakfast here were quite terrible. Don't expect good quality food here, the standard of the food here is something like we cook ourselves at home. But worth mentioning was the scramble egg, it's really quite good, not dry and not hard, it's melt in the mouth type!

This buffet breakfast is not recommended if the price is at $23.40 per pax but you can consider if it's at $10.90 for groupon.
