This was top of our list of places to visit... Head to the long bar at raffles for the original experience. Prompt service and very nostalgic setting, the only place to have a true Singapore sling but pre prepared to sling your cash or card over teh bar at nearly $30 a pop!

Raffles Hotel is very much a part of the Singapore heritage and it certainly lives up to the expectation.The Indian buffet at tiffin room is one the best i have had in singapore.The quality and the variety of food is noteworthy.The decor is so beautiful and its a perfect place to enjoy your luxurious weekend lunch.

Raffles is a long established and regarded Hotel in Singapore. Billed as a 'must' for a traditional 'Singapore Sling'. Having visited some 10 year ago we were keen to relive the standards of Colonial Service for which Raffles is renowned. But Oh how disappointing! We booked the Courtyard Italian Restaurant as it seemed the most reasonably priced dining experience at... More

Sunday Carving Champagne Brunch at the Bar & Billiard Room is almost an institution (also an expensive one).. Although it is said that soms sunday champagne brunches in nearby high end hotels are even better value for money, it is hard to beat the combination of history, ambience and quality here.. We booked late (do not expect to get a... More

"Go to the Long Bar at Raffles Hotel" they said, "it's Iconic" they said..."and you can through nutshells on the floor"?!?! So what. This is just a bar...a nothing special bar. It is not even located where the original was- according to the sign outside. It is nothing more than a way of relieving tourists of a lot of money.... More

It has become a ritual. Whenever my wife and I pass through Singapore we go to Raffles, to the buffet in the Bar and Billiard room. As people who generally do not like buffets, we are always blown away by the quality and freshness of the great variety here. It requires a real effort of will not to overeat. The... More

I've stayed at Raffles before and loved it. Best breakfast in the world. Today we went for high tea (not staying in the hotel). It was VERY disappointing. It started with the stern door man not letting us in the front door even though we had a booking. Had to go and stand around the side door in the heat... More

I last visited this bar as a young merchant navy officer almost four decades ago and it was just as impactive on me this time as... More
