Sunday Champagne Brunch for Group

Good brunch option at a classic hotel for groups of friends. Not the most extensive food selection compared with other buffets in Singapore, but dining at the Raffles Hotel is a unique experience for tourists and expats. Get there early and stay till the end to get your money's worth.

A birthday gift from my daughter and an amazing experience. All you can eat brunch with champagne and the inevitable Singapore Sling. I ate food I had never eaten before which was out of this world - a culinary delight. The atmosphere was buzzing and very friendly. The service some of the best I have ever experienced, although the never... More

I was treated to the Raffles Sunday brunch while visiting my brother in Singspore. It's a fantastic experience and the scale of the food on offer had to be seen to be believed from fairly standard breakfast fare to all sorts of meat and fish/shellfish with fruits, bread and Asian dishes too - not to mention the glorious desserts. It's... More

In summary this restaurant buffet is excellent with a wide selection of food, which should satisfy everyone. Of particular note was the fresh made pasta. Service is very good. It is a little expensive, however you are in an iconic hotel. Also you can play a game of snooker there which is very good. All in all would definitely recommend... More

You pay for the setting, which is fine. Raffles Hotel is pretty unique. Food was OK but not exceptional. Choice was good. Lobster, oysters (very nice) but you do not cook those! Meat was OK. Tender but taste was limited. Serving large volumes in buffet format is always a challenge. It was good but expensive for good. Champagne was free... More
