I have been eagerly waiting for the lunch after reading so many good reviews of their buffet. To make sure that I will not be caught up with work, I even took leave specially for the lunch appointment. The restaurant has a cosy ambient with its dark wooden furniture and colonial style setting. There was a huge variety of food and all were of top quality. Service was also excellent. It was definitely one of the best buffet experience and I never regret taking leave to taste all the excellent spread of food. I will let the photos tell its own story... enjoy. continue reading
My boyfriend surprised me with dinner to celebrate our third year anniversary. Made me so excited not only because it's at Raffles Hotel, but also because I've heard so much about the Bar & Billiard Room from my mum.Apparently, she used to dine there all the time with her colleagues. But that's another story.Anyway, I must first emphasize how good the service is here. It's the kind of service standard you will never find at just about any place in Singapore. They were warm, welcoming, friendly and always on the tip of their toes to serve you. But then again, I did feel a little uncomfortable because it felt as though their eyes were on me at every second of my dinner there. The food there was just as splendid. Quality is the word to describe it. Fresh and well-prepared! Some must-try's are the pasta, steak, squid and desserts (especially the tiramisu)!I wouldn't say the spread was extensive. In fact, the salads and starters already took up half the variety of food. So I guess if you're going there, don't expect quantity. continue reading
I hate buffets. I really do. I hate the uncontrollable urge to stuff myself silly just to make my money's worth as well as the mockery I make of myself in trying to juggle my food laden plates while standing in queue to get more servings of the same food. On the same note, I headed down to Bar & Billiard Room for a buffet dinner with my gf on a Saturday evening. Ironical isn't itLocated in a seperate building by itself within the Raffles compound, Bar & Billiard Room opened in the mid 1890s to much success. However in 1917, in response to changing lifestyles, it closed down to make way for more guest rooms. With the restoration of Raffles Hotel in the late 1980s and early 90s, Bar & Billiard Room was restored to its original appearance, circa 1910 cast iron porches and all.Stepping into Bar & Billiard Room is akin to stepping right into a bar of the old colonial period - a scene only witnessed on television. Classic Victorian architecture coupled with magnificent window arches, high ceilings and elaborate hanging lamps make for an interesting history trip. Sublime old world charm at its finesse!Honestly I don't know how I should go about doing a writeup on a buffet because there are just too many things to talk about. Variety wise, Bar & Billiard Room doesn't exactly stand out due to its rather limited offerings. I'm talking about probably 30 different food items, 10 odd dessert items, a few types of cheese and bread. Quality wise, the food is quite acceptable, with more emphasis on finesse rather than taste. I did like the pasta and the lobsters though! The only thing that differentiates this place from other buffet places(the ones that I've been to) is the outdoor BBQ section which grills up lamb, beef, pork, fish and sausages for you, some a tad too burnt though.Overall Bar & Billiard Room is a very nice chill back place to have dinner and catch up amidst the twinkling chandeliers and colonial backdrop. But costing in excess of $70/pax without any discount, you better think real hard. continue reading
