Best sunday brunch?

We are going to Singapore and would like to have brunch, but where?

I have read a lot about Mezza 9 and Four Seasons, but how about The Ritz Carlton? I had brunch there in Shanghai and thought the food was excellent, but the environment was not that nice.

Has anybody been to all three in Singapore?

I would really appreciate info and your oppinions on them!

And if anybody by chance has suggestions on where to have really good sushi, that would be much appreciated too...

Thank You,

Hanna

Ritz has a pretty good brunch but coz they serve Moet & Chandon (at least it was this brand when I had my brunch last time and the one before that) as it is a champange brunch, u will find it crowded with expats and by the end of it, u will find it too noisy even after the brunch is over (the crowd may move over to the lounge area across from the restaurant and party continues from there).

At Four Seasons, it is VCV so even more upmarket :) and again, good food and definitely more dignified atmosphere.

Other brunches :

Hilton - great for those with kids but food still good without :)

Marina Mandarin - they normally served brunch at Aquamarine

Raffles - Billiard Room

Conrad - Oscar's (i like the atmosphere with Jazz)

Fullerton - Pierside or Town Rest. both serving (Town offers more)

Shangri La - my favorite for brunch at the Line

Sentosa Spa & Resort - most costly brunch serving Duval Leroy and starts later than most brunches (u r paying for cost of champagne, if u want the most choices and quality, go for Shangri La's The Line)

good luck

Have tried several brunches in Singapore and nothing comes close to te Equinox Sunday Brunch. Endless Moet, top shelf spirits, beers and cocktails are all included in the price. The views are to die for. The service impeccable and the food Oh My God!!!

We fly up to singas 3 times a year just for sunday brunch. (Well not just for brunch, but you know what i mean)

Thank you!

We are staying at The Shangri-La in the Valley Wing, and thought that it might be nice to go somewhere else since we most likely will be dining there one night or two..

So, Four Seasons is the place that I hear the most positive things about. If the food is as good as the champagne, that's where we will go!

And, lucky you to come to Singapore so often just to have brunch! I wish it was a little bit closer to Sweden. But we have visited Bangkok many, many times just, well almost, for the food!

Thanks both of you again!

Can you take children to the brunch at Equinox, you cannot take them to that restaurant in the evening.

Hi,

I would suggest the Ritz Carlton Greenhouse for Sunday brunch.

Mezza9 is better for lunch or dinner (go to the Martini Bar for drinks - best martinis in town!) and the Four Seasons I would recommend only at Christmas time.

Not to say Four Seasons isn't great - it is! But brunch is usually at a really airy enviro but the Four Seasons is completely enclosed in an airconditioned space, with little outdoor area.

Other places you can try are:-

Graze - a modern Australian style place at the West side. www.graze.sg

Alternatively, you can try Marmalade Pantry (1. Palais Renaissance, Orchard Road 2. Holland Village. The other 2 places are shut on the weekends as they are in the business districts)

If you're willing to travel, you can head to a place called Wild Rocket.

Heard good reviews there but I've tried the rest and they are tried and tested!

Good luck!

Hi I forgot to add.

You can also try Conrad International's Oscar's.

Oscar's has a really nice buffet brunch or a la carte but I do believe it's quite famous. They used to do Veuve Clicquot brunches at Easter but not too sure whether it is a long-term thing.

Good luck and do enjoy it all!!! :)

bump (sorry for reviving this post).

I did Sunday Brunches at Ritz and FS before and dinner/lunch buffets at almost all the top grade hotels in Singapore.

Do Not go to FS for Sunday Brunch, please. It must have some drugs or whatever because after going there for first time we developed cravings and had to return continuouly for once a month. Did not feel that urge for Ritz since I am able to resist it. Happened to 2 other families I know of too. (Imagine the amount of money they swindled).

I normally do not go for starchy food on buffets but after tasting my companions' risotto, crepes, pasta I am convinced there must be some sinister things in those that FS serves up. My weakness for foie gras, mojito, oysters, organic vegs and great grilled lamb etc didn't help the addiction. The environment for FS is not the light early morning feel so it's really the food. For those who want to dump their kids, FS encourages you to dump them at a kid's playroom upstairs. Bouncing castle, cartoons on TV, sculpted balloons, tattoos, dozens of nannies, loads of kid food etc. tsk tsk. They put a spell and your kid actually FORGETS you.

For usual dinner buffet, The Line at Shangri-La will do. Less costly and their magic is limited to maybe 4-5 times a year, or at least that's the amount of magic they cast on me.

Anymore from these two places I would need to go cold turkey or sign up for some diet clinic.

Just done a search to find the best brunch and found this. Can anyone please tell me if the FS is a Champ. Bruch.

We have done Raffles and Fullerton - thought Fullerton was much better. Now looking at best for 09

Thanks
