Lying at the heart of the CBD,this restaurant that specialises in British roast beef serves a delish USDA prime roast with garlic mashed potato and Yorkshire pudding. Executives in the area might be keen to try out its set menu that includes dishes like seared shrimp fricassee and Eton mess.

Quality fine dining

Full review: http://nkikichua.blogspot.sg/2015/05/the-royal-mail-ascott-raffles-place.html

The Royal Mail Restaurant & Bar is home to contemporary British cuisines and they has been driven by an aspiration to deliver delicate dishes that exemplify quality and creativity. Usually for fine dining settings during dinner, they will start by serving you bread and butter for a light start. And I have to admit I my mind was blown with this Gruyere Cheese Bread, it's like an aromatherapy to my soul, this photo simply do not do justice to how good this is! Soft and moist centered, filled with cheese and black pepper, giving you the hint of peppery spice.

Seafood Bouillabaisse [$28] is a starter worth trying, The tangy broth is filled with the seafood goodness therefore it will leave you with a strong aftertaste, best paired with a glass of wine to clear the palate. Thumbs up to the fresh and succulent langoustine (a type of large prawn), taste alike to lobster too.

Honey Glazed Kurobuta Pork [$56] is one of my favourite main! This ain't your normal pork chop haa! The apple butter sauce drizzle over the fatty pork is like the best combination, if it gets a little too fatty, the apple infused in white wine helps to cleanse the palate.

Amongst all, the classic earl grey tea takes a dessert variation in the invigorating [$15] - enlivening this dessert is frozen yoghurt, passionfruit coulis and macerated berries. I could not get enough of this! Sweet and sour, it is like a party on my palate :)

Disappointing Food. Failed to impress.

We were looking at the restaurants participating in Restaurant week and came acorss this place. Reviews we found on this restaurant were generally pretty good however my experience was quite the opposite.    
 
 Ambience
 
  Maybe they were overwhelmed with bookings and had to bring out extra tables, but we were seated on seminar "event" type of covered  chairs with those wooden plank + metal bars pasar malam tables covered with cloth. It wasn't comforatable and don't even know what to say about that. 
 
 
 
      Food
 
  The menu looked awesome, the website was stylish, the description was great but the food failed to impress. To start things off, we were servered half a slice of bread each. I've taken a photo and attached to this post. I mean, c'mon The Royal Mail, you're a british concept restaurant! 
 
  The rest of the food came and went, clam chower was a non-event with 4 deep fried mini clams. I had the pan seared halibut which wasn't too bad, fish didn't smell bad, meat was firm and tasted fresh. The desserts left much to be desired. The homemade banana roll was like a London roll with ice-cream. 
 
  Overall i felt that there was a severe lack of finesse in the quality of the food.
 
      Value
 
  While the food was edible, it didn't impress and definetly didn't justify it's price. I've had more fulfulling meals at Hans just up the street.
 
    
Service

 
The service staff were polite, courteous and prompt. It was a nice touch that they remembered the individual orders and serve them accordingly!        Overall
 
Based on my experience at The Royal Mail, i can't recommend eating at this establishment. I felt as if the chefs didn't care about their food at all and no efforts were made at perfecting the dishes. There are many other dining alternatives around the vicinity and i suggest you consider them instead of this establishment.

I came to discover The Royal Mail when my colleague and I were looking for somewhere to unwind. We were attracted by the structure of the bar and the happy hours promotions got us there and then. 

We started with a cocktail each, the bartenders were friendly. Through the bartenders, we were told that they have a restaurant that is located on level 2. My colleague and I then decided to take a look at the restaurant since we did not have dinner. 

The restaurant's ambient was intimate, classy and heritage chic. After looking through the menu, my colleague and I were excited to have dinner at The Royal Mail. 

My penchant for Lobsters and Crustaceans led me to order Sous-vide Half Maine Lobster as my starter and Lobster Linguine as my main. My colleague had decided to indulge in the signature dish, Roast Prime Ribs. The meat was tender, juicy and moist and she was swooning with every bite. It was that good. It is very good value for the quality of meat. 

Service was excellent, there was nothing we can pick on. From the time we stepped in to the bar, everything was all but perfect. 

We decided to have Eton Mess, the signature dessert to end of our evening and we were elated that we have made that call! Eton Mess, is not a mess at all, you gotta try it to know what I mean. 
 
I will definitely come back again!

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
