Cafe Swiss - delicacy with good views

The Cafe Swiss is an elegantly, soothingly-darkly lit restaurant that is aptly described as its counterpart outlet in Swissotel Tallinn as “a modern restaurant with an inviting aura of contemporary elegance, warmth and a breath or inspirational charm”.   The quietly polite waiter escorted us to our reserved table after checking with us if we would like buffet or ala carte dinner; we opted for the latter, setteld in, and placed our orders.   Amelia* had the Sole Fish Fillet – creamily baked to tender perfection, bringing out the freshness of the sweet-fleshed fish. The flavours of this healthy dish was jazzed up with fine sprinkles of herbs / spices and are served alongside sweet cherry tomatoes, tiny chunks of baked potatoes and asparagus. She delighted in the colorful arrangement of this dish as well as the tastiness of it.   I had the Crispy Pork Knuckle served in a pan, surrounded by German potato salad, radish chunks and whole-grain mustard. It was a very hearty dish, one eaten best over drinks – I loved the crispiness of the skin of course, as unhealthy as it probably was. The meat within was firm but not hard, and while rather bland, the texture was great when chewed along with the crisps of its skin. The mustard grains and chunks of radish and potatoes were delicious as well, but too much to take in overall; it was a rather large portion, which is good news for the big eaters.   For more detailed information and photos, do visit: http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2013/12/dinner-at-cafe-swiss-swissotel.html

I paid about $53 for lunch buffet for 2 persons after 1 for 1 promo. It is really not worth it.
Selection was lousy and quality of the food was poor! Thank goodness I was mentally prepared after reading about the reviews that the cafe was hot!
I should have patronised Buffet Town instead which is located in th

Decent international buffet lunch

Cafe Swiss serves decent international buffet lunch, with a capacity of 210 dine in restaurant. The restaurant uses natural lighting from its overhead glass roof thus it can get pretty warm on a hot day.
Though the food selection isn't much but it serves slightly better quality of food. Just because it is located in town area, it cost slightly more than other buffets. However for the price I'm paying with the spread, I would go else where more money worthy places. Read more on http://nkikichua.blogspot.sg/2014/05/cafe-swiss-swissotel-singapore.html

During Christmas this year, Café Swiss @ Swissotel The Stamford is having DBS 1-for-1 for their festive lunch & dinner buffet. We decided to try out cafe swiss as we read reviews about it and since it's 1-for-1 deal.   Started off w the greens and the wide selections of salad in big pots - taste decent. Moving on to their savory dishes, a variety of picks for cheese fondue. Pasta & Omelette station - A choice of tomato or mushroom sauce for your pasta. I had numerous servings of it because of their flavorful mushroom sauce w generous servings of mushroom. Delicious! What's Christmas without roasted turkey? Serving alongside were the German sausages as well. Not to miss the Japanese station, assorted sushi and salmon sashimi. Sashimi were average, not too fresh either. Seafood cold section - Chilled clams, mussels and fresh prawns.     The dessert section were pleasant and satisfying, there were the log cakes and festive fruit cakes as well. We end off from a spread of cakes to pick from. Overall, some were above our expectations while some fell short. Is it worth it?

Cafe Swiss is a buffet that offers a limited  but good quality spread that should suit the needs of everyone.

Start with the chilled clams, salmon sashimi and prawn roe (ebiko) before moving on to the cold cuts such as the salami and Parma ham. There's also some salad and burrata for those that needs their vegetables and cheese fix.

From the hot food menu I would go for the prawns, sausages and pork belly.

Finally, end with some sweets from a variety of cakes to pick from. Overall, food was good in a casual setting with efficient service staff.
