We made the last minute booking for afternoon tea. Upon arrival, we felt a bit unwelcoming by the staff (Amaya?) who assigned the seat but then later we well served by Junel and esp Michelle who was attentive during the meal. MBS harbour view as always, food was tasty and plenty with two choices of drinks for each person. Recommended.

I booked the high tea on boxing day at the last minute because its the only place with available seats and I finally understood why. It was for celebration for a friend who was getting married so we were all quite excited but this high tea was really a downer. First of all, the plating was ugly if you compare... More

I was staying at the Mandarin Oriental recently, and this of course is their in the house bar. The bar has a good selection of drinks, and has a nice relaxed setting. There are comfortable chairs and also sofas. There is a view towards the Esplanade but one can see little of the Marina Bay because of the buildings nearby.... More

We booked this for high tea. Excellent service from Junel and his team. Everything was beautifully presented and good TWG tea selection. The best courses were the 1st 2 with savories, scones and puffs. The latter 2 were mainly sweet desserts and the last course we found a little too sweet except for the day chocolate and red-currant cream which... More

went there on Sunday and tried afternoon tea for lunch. the volume of afternoon tea is not so big but good for standard Asian people, I think. Moreover the best point is not so crowded and bigger personal space as well as windows table with sofa. Recommend for those matured who do not like packed afternoon tea.

The usual suspects- scones, sandwiches are all there and delicious, and as halloween was approaching at the time, it has added this theme in some of its pastries. Still manage to taste good and not as scary as it looks(for example, the "Tombs" were actually chocolate cakes). Nice try though I would prefer "normal ones". I prefer the savory ones... More

Visited Axis last weekend to try out afternoon tea. Generally the service was very good as was the food quality. Not what I would describe as a traditional English afternoon tea but nice and well prepared. We had a window seat which was nice although the view is not amazing. Our only criticism was the piano. Although an accomplished player... More

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
