This 100-seater restaurant offers a spacious dining environment decorated by planted foliage, a collection of wood-carved tables and an abundance of daylight that peeks through the restaurant’s French windows.The menu showcases contemporary European cuisine with Asian inspirations at affordable prices and two plate sizes 'small plates' and 'big plates'.
There are not many restaurants that has not good - but great service staff to drive the dining experience to an exceptional one. The Halia at Raffles makes the mark.
A simple question on what is good in the menu let 'Mariam' - haha I hoped I got the name right cos I actually went to Halia back in Jan 2016, passionately point out her good recommendations - her politeness and friendliness has impressed my fiancée and myself.
The food is delectable and could wow you - we especially liked the steamed fish and chili crab spaghetti, though towards a slightly pricey, we were more than contented.
Mariam is one of the most service passionate person we have come across. Kudos!
A must try!!
this is my first time to halia at raffles hotel and the ambience here is very classy. I like it from the moment I stepped into the restaurant, welcomed by the polite staffs there. I ordered this chilli crab pasta and indeed it met my expectations, or even exceeded them! it tasted spicy sweet and there are really chunks of crab meat which comes in big servings. I shared this with my husband and we had a urge to order for a second serving. so guys pls try this.out if you are there!
Located on Level One of the iconic Raffles Hotel, Halia Restaurant features a strong east-meets-west vibes, in both decoration and their menu. This distinctive restaurant is set in a location easy to spot, and done in a casual chic style of both cultures.
The ambience was comfortable, urban chic and a little vintage, making the place almost romantic looking. Anyway, we prowled the menu and debated between various fusion items such as Halia Chilli Crab and Javanese Spiced Lamb Rump , but in the end we didn't order any of these two.
We started with a Deep Fried Salt & Chilli Squid (SGD$15.00) - delicious, succulent squid done in dainty pieces, lightly flavored so that the natural sweetness of squid was still detectable. It was lovely, and we were surprised to see it served in a cute dimsum tray.
For mains, *Charliez chose the Confit Duck Leg (SGD$34.00) - complete with duck fat potatoes, Brussels sprouts, parsnip puree and cinnamon gravy. The skin was kind of crispy, but the meat could have been more tender. The parsnip puree had an acquired taste that requires getting used to, as well.
I had the Lightly-Cured Salmon Fillet (SGD$31.00) - with dried tomato, roast capsicum and basil leaves. I loved my dish. The slices of salmon skin around the plate were salted, and crispy. The salmon fillet itself was soft and tender on top, and the inside was lightly cooked so that the texture held the juicy bounce of sashimi's.

The ambiance here is better than the food in my opinion but maybe you should try the ala carte rather than the lunch set. Still one of the more affordable food options within raffles hotel and the space is nice to hang out, but I did not particularly enjoy the food I ordered to the extent that I will come back for the food. Maybe I will try high tea.
