Fish House in Stanley Park – Afternoon Tea

If you’re looking to do Afternoon Tea in Stanley Park, where should you go? Your first guess would probably be at The Teahouse in Stanley Park… actually, I’m not even sure if they do Afternoon Tea at The Teahouse. No, this post is on Afternoon Tea at the Fish House in Stanley Park.

While priced at $38 per person, we had a Living Social deal which offset some of the cost. They serve TWG teas here and we opted for the Silver Moon Tea (a blend of green teas accented with berries and vanilla) and the Grand Wedding (a black tea blended with sunflowers and exotic fruits like passion fruit). I found both teas to be quite fragrant but they both had subtle flavours. Also, the tea pots that they gave us, while pretty, were impractically small.

The homemade raisin scones could have been fluffier but I did enjoy the white chocolate cream and strawberry jam that it was served with.

For the tea sandwiches, they included: smoked salmon with fried capers and herb garlic cream cheese on a mini bagel (the mini bagel was too soft), Oregon pink shrimp, pea shoots, and dill aioli mini croissant (the croissant was a bit dry and not very flaky), grilled chicken and brie with a fig compote on challah slider (chicken was on the dry side), roasted vegetables and goat cheese on herb foccacia

The best dessert item was the one with the nuts (I think it was chocolate ganache) because the one with coconut and the one with chocolate cream were too sweet.

Food-wise, not the best Afternoon Tea that you can find in the city and service was slow (I think a lot of other people were there to use up their Afternoon Tea coupons). But the location is nice. I’ve preferred our previous visit when we had regular menu items.
