Even the fame of "Ruffles" name does not warrant the prices in a relatively empty restaurant, with a team of obsequious waiters and a hollow atmosphere. The food was, of course very artistically presented, but the duck has seen better days and the loster tasted, well, slighly athletic and taste-free. Having experienced extensive range of exotic flavours and superb international... More

Maybe it's the old world charm that the Grill is trying to evoke, but there's no "wow" factor here - no issue with the quality of the food or the service, but the restaurant, in my opinion, has lost whatever USP it supposedly has.

As expected as one of the most famous restaurants in the world, the food and service was exceptional. The restaurant wasn't very busy, so it was rather lacking in atmosphere. Cheapest bottle of wine was £100, which seemed rather unnecessary.

We chose to dine at the Raffles Grill as an end of holiday treat. Yes it is expensive, but exceptional service and quality food does not come cheap. Having dined in many Michelin star restaurants the Raffles Grill did not disappoint. From the friendly welcome, to the exceptional dining room staff, the experience was up there with the best. If...

I went for lunch with some friends here. Initially we had trouble getting a reservation. First our travel specialist from American Express was told they had no openings. Then our hotel called and got us right in for 12:00. WE arrived on time and had to wait to 10 minutes. WE walked into a completely empty dining room. Still haven't... More
