What a nostalgic experience dining at the Raffles Hotel Bar and Billiard room. It felt as if you were back in the historical days in Singapore! A definite must try when visiting Singapore for the Sunday brunch . A very good spread of cheese, air cured meats and also superb dessert counter. The meat selection was also good and the... More

This has to be a highlight in any trip to Singapore. From the moment you are welcomed to the restaurant to when you leave - you are made to feel special. The selection of foods is amazing and all presented immaculately. There is a seafood selection including 4 types of oyster and Maine lobster. A huge selection of cold entrées... More

Difficult to fault the service here. Glasses were kept filled. Special requests not on the menu were met e.g. milkshake for my son. Thoughtful gesture of providing a complimentary cake when they knew we were celebrating a special occasion. All in all we felt very well taken care of here. Kudos to the team there. Food was very good. A... More

Not withstanding the numerous good reviews I've come across about their brunch buffet, visually, the spread was more than impressive... Everything looked fantastic! Wagyu this and that, Main Lobsters, Oysters, Jamon Iberico, Black Angus and the names go on and on... Not only did things look good, they sounded good too! But... Unfortunately... Everything went downhill from there... Whilst every... More

Went here for lunch on a Thursday during our 2 week holiday in Singapore. The whole family, including children of 6 and 5 loved the experience. The service was just amazing. Cannot think of a restaurant I have been anywhere that had better service. The staff were just great with the kids. Sometimes a high end place can make it... More

My wife and I regularly brunch our way around the world. We've tried several in Dubai which we always used as the benchmark. Raffles billiard and bar brunch was sensational. Wonderful surroundings, delicious food, great drinks and not ridiculously expensive. The kids were made welcome and also loved it. 10/10. We also went to Long Bar afterwards for a few... More

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.....
