“Great Sunday Brunch”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

Been here twice, the second for their Sunday Brunch. It's really a good place to go with as a couple or even friends & families. The staff right up to the Restaurant Manager were quick and prompt in re-filling up our wine/prosecco. You know some places you go to where you literally have to stand up and show them your empty glass with the pitiful doggy look. I honestly find the choice of spread reasonble and well thought through espcially if you are into Italian food. It's not just pastas & pizzas, they even have a carving station too plus onot forgetting their extensive selection of breads. This is the heaven for bread lovers.
Basically Pete's Sunday Brunch it's not your regular Hotel Sunday Champagne brunch where it'll cost you an arm & a leg in Singapore. It's reasonable price at SG88++ (I think) and you get the a full buffet + free flow of decent quality prosecco/ wine.

For now, I'm trying hard to find an excuse to plan for the next Sunday Brunch galore in Pete's Place..

“Soup and Salad for the Guilty”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

I've been eating at this place since I could remember but have recently increased my number of visits because of a contact who seems to love their soup and salad "package." To my surprise, I've been back there in recent times for as many as five occasions and the soup - minestrone is my fave- and salad is a guilt-free fix. We usually have a soup each (avoid the pumpkin soup), share a plate of bread (great butter though only 3 choices) and then go for the salad. The honey mustard dressing I love kinda spoils my calorie limitation but who cares, and this is followed by the dessert. I usually avoid the desserts (all good by the way) and go for the fruits. Pete's Place often serves jackfruits which are hard to find elsewhere. I suspect a lot of the wait staff have been there since opening day but they are nice, friendly and quite efficient. Overall, if you're looking for an American-inspired pasta place, Pete's Place is the place. Renovation is being planned for some time in 2014, I hope they won't change the character of the place too much or it won't be Pete's Place anymore.

“Great food at the great place!”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

I cannot believe it took me so long to write this review!
We LOVE Pete's place! Been there countless amount of times and making sure to visit every time we are in Singapore!
Great atmosphere,with dark walls,"grandma's" furniture and checkered tablecloths and hand painted dishes.
Great service,attentive but never annoying! Great food,everything that we'd tried we loved. Now we just order our favorite,Cioppino - seafood pasta with plenty of seafood in rich tomato sauce! It's amazing!
Their bread is also great,freshly baked at the restaurant. And the desserts are simply divine!
We'd recommended this place to so many of our friends who are coming to Singapore, probably should ask for the "refer-a-friend" discount :))

“Good solid Italian fare in S E Asia”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

In contrast to most cities, one finds good restaurants in hotels in Singapore.

Pete's Place in the Grand Hyatt is no exception,

It offers good, well prepared, cooked and presented Italian cuisine without being especially high end or exciting.

However, it is an ideal place to eat providing really good food at very competitive prices.

Go for the self service salad bar during happy hour - this is really good.

“Not to expectations”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

A friend had recommended the Pete’s place buffet so we had booked for dinner.
The staff were inattentive and the service is poor.

For the price, the selection was very limited.
Quality of food was not as good as I thought would be.
Fresh seafood were good.
The rest of the cooked dishes were disappointing.
The dessert spread are most disappointing.

Not much happening and its expansive. go once is enough.

Dear yv0nnet

Thank you for taking the time to express your concerns on TripAdvisor. We were disappointed to read that you did not have a positive dining experience. Also, it was even more troubling to read that you found the staff inattentive and the service, poor. This is definitely not the 5-star service that we pride ourselves in, and we are truly sorry for this. We will look into the issues which you have mentioned, and hopefully, we will be able to have another chance to welcome you back again.
