This may not be the cheapest brunch option in Singapore but is by far the best!! You generally need to book at least a week in advance. The food is out of this world and you really are spoiled for choice! The service is what you would expect from Raffles - excellent! We will definitely do this again!!

Their Sunday brunch is certainly one of the 'great' experiences of SE Asia. It is just outstanding and well worth the price. Food delicious, and, importantly, absolutely fresh. I treat any friends who pass through Singapore to the free-flow champagne option.....

Excellent service, live music (piano) and of course the decorum of the Raffles lobby has a backdrop, this is really a great place for drinks in Singapore. The Sling was perfect.

The atmosphere in the Bar & Billiard room is great. Spend a little time in the Bar on the veranda, then go in to the Billiard room for dinner which is Buffet Style. the Smoked Salmon and Prawns are great, the Pasta dishes homemade excellent, Salads excellent, the main course of the day changes but try the Breast of Duck...

Meals here normally include carving stations with roast beef, etc. Its Sunday brunch is justly famous, but rather expensive.

We tend to go here for lunch only once when staying in Singapore as we want to maintain it as THE place for lunch. The venue allows privacy in a big room, with lots of space between tables. The service is attentive and friendly, as close to perfect as you can get it. The food is excellent with special stations... More

Decent buffet but we found it extremely expensive. 88++ per person is a lot so make sure you're hungry otherwise it's not worth it.
