Description: No grand hotel is complete without a dining room and that is where Raffles Grill takes pride of place. First opened in 1923, the elegant dining establishment is perfectly maintained with sparkling crystal chandeliers and period furnishing. Tall French windows look out to the Palm Court, flooding the interiors with natural light in the day. With an illustrious history and a myriad of awards bestowed through the years, Raffles Grill is well-regarded for its remarkable cuisine, fine wines and beautiful interiors. Raffles Grill now presents an international selection for guests, from premium cuts, contemporary French creations to full degustation menus. On Sundays, partake in an array of the finest seasonal ingredients prepared with creative flair. Indulge in endless fresh seafood, hearty live carvings, charcuterie and desserts, along with your choice of our recommended entree option. This luscious semi buffet Sunday Champagne Brunch experience is complemented by exquisite Billecart-Salmon champagne. Raffles Grill will be closed from the middle of August 2017 as part of our restoration programme and is slated for a grand reopening in the middle of 2018, along with the rest of the hotel.

“It's like time has stood still- the most perfect food- perfect staff-perfect restaurant”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

This is truly a perfect dinning experience ....it's a special place for a special night.
Forget the Singapore sling....The experience is about the atmosphere of this great dinning room...the food experience ....and perfect service.
It's not inexpensive but worth every dollar.
The staff are charming and for a deluxe restaurant instantly makes you feel at home,wanted and comfortable....and at ease to spend money...it's Raffles ...the famous hotel...in Singapore...and it's never going to be cheap.....it's mega special and an experience.
The wine service is just PERFECT by capable and knowledgable ...non pushy sommeliers .
Take the Singapore sling at the end of your meal.
Dress smart...you'll feel at home in this grand historic dinning roomy

“Excellent but VERY Expensive”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

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 figured all that out.
Three of us ordered starters and a main dish. One person just got soup and salad. Two of us got dessert and one person drank one glass of champagne. The food was PERFECT in that sort of way that you think of the best London or New York Restaurants. The quality of ingredients and the flavor profile was seriously incredible. BUT our bill was just over 700 Singapore dollars for lunch. Seemed like way to much to all of us.

“Just simply the best.”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We had dinner there last weekend. Simply the best food and dining experience ever. Yes, it was expensive; who would go there expecting a cheap nosh-up? It was worth every penny. I've eaten in many Michelin starred restaurants. Only Quay in Sydney comes anywhere close to being as good as Raffles Grill.

“As elegant as ever, but overpriced”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

The Raffles Grill continues to offer world class service in an opulent and historic setting, but their prices are excessive. With appetizers starting at US$40 and mains starting at US$70, one would expect to be dining at a Michelin starred restaurant.
