The Hotel has great location in the waterfront at Clarke Quay area of Singapore.Their restaurent Ellenbarough Market Cafe in the ground floor facing the waterway has not only got a great decor but also offers a fantastic buffet dinner spread.There was a huge collection of prawns and lobstars in a variety of preperations.There was also the famous singaporean chilli crab.The food was mainly western and oriental but we were surprised to see Madras Mutton Curry the famous mutton curry of south India.And it tasted really authentic.All six of us enjoyed the food very much .However equally surprising was the very very reasonable price of this great buffet at Swissotel Merchant Court.We visited the same place twice again in the next 10 days of our stay in Singapore.

I went with my parents and friend for the dinner buffet around New Year period. The first thing that greeted us when we were seated was the party hats and New Year celebration collaterals. Next was the sumptuous food that was beautifully arranged to whet our appetites. My favourite was the seafood on ice and peranakan cuisine. Desserts were more limited but still reasonable. My friend gorged on the slipper lobsters with chilli sauce and shrimps. It was a fabulous food extravaganza!!

This is my third time dining here. Food is ok, acceptable. Variety is decent as well. However, the thing to "die" for here is their durian puree! I had three servings. :), They also served a variety fresh seafoods - crabs, prawns, etc. Quite fresh. Didnt had much of it, because i was focusing on their durian puree. :)

Overall the service was good, except for this waitress (i think she might be a supervisor, because she was in different uniform). We requested for lemon slice, she ask us to get it from the counter. My friend asked for a dessert spoon, she ask us to get it from the counter. Not much of a service eh?

Would I recommend people to go there? Yes, to try their durian puree!

We ate at this restuarant as we were staying at the hotel. The service was very good as was the food however I thought that the restuarant lacked any ambiance but it could have just been that day - who knows.
