“Colonial splendour at its best!!! Splash the cash & enjoy!!!!”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

Having lived in Singapore for a couple of years working for a Singapore Company raffles courtyard was a frequent Saturday afternoon refreshing stop for a lunch/brunch. Sitting under large umbrellas & palms within a courtyard of lush vegetation & water features, you are away from the manic shopping malls and surrounded by a piece of history. The bar itself is a beautiful covered white iron work bar, open sides with bar stalls all around, the arched walkways providing cool shade for those walking around, an oasis of calm & beauty. At weekends there is live gentle music to just while away the afternoon with friends. Drinks and food are served, not cheap but this is an icon!!!. You can walk around and just take in the atmosphere and take a photo, no charge and you are surrounded by this wonderful white walled shuttered colonial palace! Brilliant!!!. Splash the cash & enjoy!!!!.

“Worth the visit”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

Beautiful atmosphere and the building is just magnificent.

Staff are efficient and courteous.

Just make sure you are prepared to pay through the nose..... I enjoyed my Singapore Sling but at $27 SGD it didn't knock my socks off!

“An Italian flavour”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

The menu is simple but excellent with some very good Pastas and if you want something quickly, light and reasonably priced the Raffles Courtyard is the place to come with bags of Charm and the Long Bar for your Singapore Sling a little later just a few yards away!

“Very pleasant”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

If you don't fancy sitting inside in Long Bar sit outside here, it's 60 seconds away.
The service is very good and we had the pleasure of watching the bar staff making numerous cocktails, at impressive speed indeed.
Like everything else in Raffles it's immaculate and spotlessly clean.
As well as drink there is a bar snack service on offer, spaghetti, pizza etc.
It is a very nice place to spend an evening, but as with the Long Bar, be prepared to pay for the privilege.

“Excellent Italian food”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

Staying in this hotel and wanted a quick lunch.
Was better than expected!
Plain but very fresh food, excellent pizza.
Staff and service was very good too.
And you can smoke on one of the table!
Definitely recommended !
