The best Sunday Champagne Brunch you'll ever have in Singapore, at Bar and Billiard Raffles Hotel. Comes with a Live foie Gras Station, OMG. Good selection of Oysters, carved meats and hams and free flow Billecarte-salmon Champagne. A hefty price but definitely worth it as the service standards are absoultely world-class. Check out my blog for full review and pictures.
At $55++ or $78++ per person, you’re getting more than just a spread of finest dishes from all over the world; you’re also paying for dining in the heritage surrounds of this 1896-established room under which a tiger was supposedly chased in 1902. On Thursdays to Saturdays, tuck into a European-style lunch buffet or a seafood-themed dinner buffet spread of oysters, both featuring a selection of at least 15 mains and over 10 desserts, of which three are gluten-free. If Sundays are the designated brunch days, a more extravagant spread is available from $158++ per person: think pata negra ham, freshly pan-fried foie gras, fresh ravioli, black angus tomahawk, barbecued Iberico pork ribs, Maine lobster, and 48 cheeses from Ceneri - a shop on the French Riviera.

First time at Raffles for Brunch, have eaten at many of their restaurants and was not disappointed.
Great selection of food compared to other brunches we attend regularly. Seefood selection was exceptional. Tapas style layout of cold meats was a nice touch.
Carvery was as always the last thing on my mind woth many other selections available but was enjoyable never the less.
My fav was the selection of pink or white billecart salmon champagne (slightly different price. Wines are also available and the staff informed us which to drink with what food selections, not something you get at a standard champagne brunch. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billecart-Salmon
We have the Feed at Rafflse Membership which we got through our local bank credit card, well worth the money it cost as for two people the discount was 50% ($188++ per pax - free flow champagne less 50% FAR Discount), definately a regular visit to this venue but on the downside its a busy venue so getting an inside booking is not easy unless you book in advance.
The buffet spread at the Bar & Billard room is wonderful. The poached prawns were so fresh and sweet, but the star for me has got to be the chocolate cream served in leaf-like bowlets. It looked so simple yet tasted so heavenly -smooth and rich yet does not make you sick. The whole atmosphere was rather quaint and I like the spaciousness - we even had a huge couch to ourselves!
I must say this is one of the best buffet I've ever had. The spread of varieties from seafood to the tender and juicy roasted ribeye/lamb to the extensive of dessert that really really satisfy the foodie inside you. The ambiance was british colonial with a touch of historical class. Plush sofas lined the dining area and restrooms. Overall, a very comfortable and nostalgic experience. The buffet spread (at $55++) allows each diner 2 helping of hot beverages, other than free flow of water. The service was courteous and efficient. Soiled plates were cleared promptly and water was refilled regularly.
