Unlike the throng of Singapore Sling seekers who gravitate to the Long Bar on the upper first floor, I ducked in here on a wet evening to savour a cold beer and a quick snack and I was absolutely not disappointed. It was not a hive of social activity on this damp afternoon, even though the tables were all sheltered... More

Beautiful colonial style hotel. Definitely upmarket in every way - including price! We were advised by our daughter to visit the Long Bar - the decor is very similar to the upmarket Oyster box hotel bar in Umhlanga, Durban. We were faced with a very long q to the Long Bar so opted for the courtyard which was a lovely... More

I always take my overseas guests to Raffles Hotel, and have drinks or something to eat at Raffles Courtyard. This glorious hotel is steeped in history and has a wonderfully serene ambience about it. I love it there!

We had a lovely meal here in the outside but under awnings. Service was good and the ambience was nice. Very much an Italian theme to this restaurant. The main course was very good and tasty but the ice cream was a bit overpriced, being only one scoop. Good value though.

You can't go passed Raffles without having a Singapore Sling at the historic Raffles Hotel. While the most expensive cocktail we preferred the Tropical cocktail as its bigger and less sweat . Thin stone baked Pizzas are highly recommended while in the court yard ;-)

This is an Italian style restaurant. We had a very fresh mixed salad to start and then each of us had a bowl of pasta. The iced tea and iced latte were delicious. It was a treat to dine in the Courtyard under an sun umbrella in such a historic spot, surrounded by the lovely architecture. The service was perfect.... More

In the court yard of the Raffles hotel complex. As a court yard it is open air so humidity and mosquitoes are a problem Cold iced drinks soon warm up.

You sit inn the courtyard of Raffles and can soak up the atmosphere of the hotel from this courtyard as you dine al fresco. An Italian menu with pizzas and pastas mainly. Sizeable portions and we had a starter (a delicious gazpacho- piquant and refreshing) but that was ample and we denied ourselves a sweet. Good drinks menu and you... More

We had lunch outside under umbrellas during a heavy rain shower - reasonably dry with some splash back at lower levels and drips from overhead – servers under umbrellas – ordered pizza to share – very tasty well-seasoned and a reasonable price – not so the draft tiger beer at $18 for a half and $22 for a pint –...

We had to tick off a Singapore Sling at its birthplace, Raffles in Singapore! We were able to enter the courtyard in flip-flops which we were a little worried about before we arrived but didn't seem to be an issue... the courtyard was quite empty with a few dozen people at around 5pm on Saturday. The bar had approximately 6... More
