A few tips to start with. Champagne brunch is on Sunday from 12pm onwards and comes with a price of course. It is so worth it. Make sure to book in advance and if you are just visiting, make this one of the to-do list of your trip. The buffet line is absolutely one of the best I have experienced... More

My husband & I then had fresh orange juice while his parents had the complimentary wine. The food choice is superb, 4 different kinds of oysters, lobsters & the care taken to plate smoked salmon with caviar was... More

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.

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".
