My son is on the moderately autism spectrum. He is just like Mount St. Helens volcano. Any outburst from him usually ends up in a catastrophic manner. This is our first buffet dinner with him. We checked into raffles hotel and the stay comes with this meal. The theme was European buffet. But the staff happily provided me a bowl... More

I booked the outdoor terrace from the Bar & Billiard room for my 50th years anniversary whilst inviting a group of 25-30 guests to join me for the Sunday Brunch. The setting is simply amazing - outdoor under the cover of the roof of the terrace - court yard facing on one side and directly into the restaurant on the... More

Stupendous selection and gracious service. The most difficult decision is what to choose from the "banquet" on offer. I did make a mistake in my choice of carafe of wine. I saw a new for me Italian wine but it hardly matched the quality of the food.

The Bar and Billiard Room restaurant at the Singapore Raffles hotel is a legend in itself. We enjoyed the lunch buffet during our stay in Singapore for the F1 GP. The "old" interior is stunning and reminds you of times gone bye long ago. The food is outstanding and, of course, the Singapore Sling is "the real thimg".

The champagne brunch is amazing. At this price, and with drinks included however, its staggering to charge 15$++ for a bottle of water!!! Be sure to ask for ice water, which is free.

We are expats in Singapore and have been loyal diners at the Bar & Billiard room since 2001. We felt we had to write a review today, because as ever the Sunday Brunch was absolutely superb! Flowing chilled fine champagne, wonderful fresh oysters, lobster, crab & prawns. A beautiful carving station with carefully sourced meats all cooked to perfection! Deserts... More

Expensive, but worth every cent. The food, drinks and service were excellent, but the real star of the show is the billiard room itself. The food at every section, from the seafood, to the pasta, meat, the cheese and the amazing sweets was fantastic, beautifully presented and really good quality. A great experience.

I will start by saying a massive thank you to Chef Mikaele (?) for looking after us last Sunday. He went above and beyond to relocate our table for 5 from outside. Original table was outside. This was not mentioned at booking, and was way too hot to sit back, eat and relax.... In the end we sat in the... More
