Soiree (at the Sofitel Wentworth)
61 - 101 Phillip St
Sydney CBD

Soiree is on the ground floor of the Sofitel Wentworth Hotel and it is also the place to go for the lovely Classic Wentworth High Tea. It's a pretty place with lovely atmosphere, comfortable seats and cosy nooks. The whole restaurant oozes class but in a relaxed way.

We started with a few glasses of champagne - and why wouldn't you at a high tea!

As someone who isn't a fan of white wines, Mlady had the Laurent-Perrier Cuvee Rose. It was certainly a great drink and she loved every drop of it.

I had the Tattinger and it was - as always - lovely. Tattinger is certainly a favourite of mine.

You actually have the option of champagne here as an added extra (and for a small extra charge) or if that's not your cup of tea - sorry - you can simply have a cup of tea. If you want champagne it will come first for you to sip while you await the goodies. However don't rush it - they are quite happy to delay the arrival of your tea until, you've finished your champagne - if that's what you want.

It's an impressive three tiered stand that arrives for High Tea. It's very elegantly presented and has a great assortment of goodies there to work your way through while sipping several cups of tea. 

We started on the bottom tier of the stand - with the sandwiches, quiche and muffins.

It's a great selection with roast beef on whole wheat bread with horseradish butter; smoked salmon on ciabatta bread with cream cheese, cherry tomatoes and capers; cucumber and dill on white bread; spinach and pumpkin muffins and last but not least quiche Lorraine.

After the savoury sandwiches we moved on to the scones which were on the second tier.

There were four there for us - two each of plain and fruit - although Mlady only had a plain one (to save some room) so I had the joys of eating three of them! Both varieties were delicious and of course they came with a decent sized serving of cream and jam.

Finally we got to the top tier of our high tea - where all the most indulgent goodies are located.

It looked spectacular with a sea of different colours on display and it tasted just as good.

There were eclairs, macarons, tartlets, opera square and the Wentworth cheese cake. All of these were delicious!

Soiree is an impressive place. Service was excellent and there's an elegant but relaxed feel to the whole place. The food was also great - so much variety and the quality was also wonderful. The Classic Wentworth High Tea is something well worth doing! Treat yourself - you won't regret it.

Sir and Mlady dined as guests of the Sofitel Wentworth. Special thanks to Rebecca Freestun for arranging out visit and to Ashleigh and Marjorie for looking after us on the day. We also had the opportunity to take a peek at one of the lovely suites upstairs as well - with pictures to be posted very soon. Thanks to Melissa for showing us around upstairs.
