Weekends are for retreats, and I cannot think of anything better than enjoying some good food in a nice and cosy restaurant, preferably with some champagne or cocktail if you are feeling richer on some days. We collate a list of some of our favourite Sunday Brunch Buffets amongst the ones we have visited before. Bar & Billiard Room at Raffles Hotel Singapore, Edge at Pan Pacific Singapore, Kwee Zeen at Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa, Manhattan at Regent Singapore, The Line at Shangri-la Singapore, Town Restaurant at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore, J65 at Hotel Jen Tanglin, Oscar’s at Conrad Centennial Singapore and Yan Ting at The St. Regis Singapore – are you ready to feast? Some factors we consider when putting this list together – good variety in the buffet spread, generally above average buffet quality, comfy ambience where you can take all your time to eat and not rush (it’s the weekend afterall).
P.S: updated July 2016
Bar & Billiard Room, Raffles Hotel Singapore
Firstly, we need to warn that this Sunday Brunch buffet has one of the most insane spreads. From fresh seafood to live carving stations to French cheeses and desserts, even the food is displayed in classy Victorian fashion. We have been to many Sunday Champagne Brunches, and we must say the quality of the spreads here at Bar & Billiard Room ranks above all. This might just be the best Sunday Champagne Brunch in Singapore – make very sure you head here once, that is if the price tag hasn’t turned you away yet.
When: Every Sunday from12 pm to 3pm
Price $158++ per person with a Selection of Red and White Wines, Beer, Soft Drinks, Juices and Singapore Sling, S$198++ per person with Billecart-Salmon Brut Réserve Champagne, S$218++ per person with Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne

Edge, Pan Pacific Singapore
The award winning Edge buffet at Pan Pacific Singapore probably needs no further introduction. I like Edge (read our full review here) for its distinct layout in showcasing different cuisines, where it is almost impossible to try everything in one visit. For the Sunday champagne brunch, you get to enjoy unlimited Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label champagne, house wines, beers and classic cocktails from 12pm to 4pm, one of the longest champagne brunch around. The meat and grills sections are one of the highlights at Edge, where you simply pick your meats, pass the staff your table stick and wait for the food to be served at your table.
When: Every Sunday from 12pm to 4pm
Price: $178++ per adult with free flow of Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow label, Fox Creek Chardonnay, Fox Creek Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon, classic cocktails, fresh juices, soft drinks and selected beers.$118++ per adult or child between 12 and 17 years with free flow of soft drinks, fresh juices, coffee and tea.

Kwee Zeen, Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa
As one of the newest hotel to open in Sentosa, it already felt like a holiday the moment we stepped into Kwee Zeen restaurant in Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa. Aptly named as the Magnifique Sunday Champagne Brunch (read our full review here), one of the highlights is the wide range of crabs, from Mud Crab, Brown Crab, Dungeness Crab to Tourteax Crab, we promise it will definitely be a crabby affair.
When: Every Sunday from 1230pm to 330pm
Price: $168 per adult with free-flow Tattinger Champagne, wine and non-alcoholic drinks

Manhattan, Regent Singapore
When it comes to a cocktail brunch buffet, no one does it in a true fashion like Manhattan Bar in Regent Singapore. As a adult-only brunch affair, the crowd at Manhattan Bar is sophisticated and well-mixed, with an all-too-cosy ambience which makes you want to stay for as long as the brunch lasts. With unlimited cocktails, rest assure that you can literally drink till you drop. Without a doubt, the food such as Boston lobster and the petite array of desserts is nothing but satisfying.
When: Every Sunday from 11.30am to 3.30pm
Price: $150++ (inclusive of free-flow of Manhattan Bar’s craft cocktails, beers and wines) or at $195++ (adding in free-flow of Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve Champagne)

The Line, Shangri-la Singapore
Definitely the most extensive of all buffets, and as their name suggest, The Line (read our full review here) has a sumptuous spread catering to meat lovers with 6 roasts and one that is bound to satiate your seafood craving, there are also the 30 cheeses, 10 foie gras, local Singaporean delights, Indian fare, and the list goes on. Pair this up with Perrier-Jouet Champagne, and take your pick from any of the 16 stations, the weekend is becoming a tad too bubbly-perfect!
When: Every Sunday from 12pm to 3pm
Price: $158 per adult with free-flow Perrier-Jouet Champagne, wine and non-alcoholic drinks

Town Restaurant, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore
If you are looking for a wide variety of spread and a lively ambience, nowhere comes close to Town restaurant at Fullerton Hotel. The spacious setting of Town restaurant makes it pleasant to roam around the incessant buffet line, from Japanese corner to seafood station to the line of desserts extending to the hotel lobby. I must say it is almost an impossible feat to try every item. The quality of the buffet is easily one of the best around.
When: Every Sunday from 12pm to 3pm

J65, Hotel Jen Tanglin
An earlier staycation at the revamped Hotel Jen Tanglin (read our full review of the hotel stay here) has left us impressed with the overall facade and design of the hotel, including the resident restaurant J65 right beside the lobby. At $118 net per person, the J65 Sunday Champagne Brunch may well be the cheapest hotel Champagne brunch buffet around, with free flow Perrier-Jouët Champagne, beers, wine, sparkling wine, juices and soft drinks. Expect a live music band, wide spread of seafood, roast meats, salad and local delights (read our full review of the Sunday Brunch buffet here).
*Editor’s update: We were informed that J65 no longer serves Champagne for its Sunday Brunch buffet.
When: Every Sunday from 12pm to 3pm
Price: $118 net per adult with free flow Perrier-Jouët Champagne, beers, wine, sparkling wine, juices and soft drinks
Non-alcohol option is priced at SGD 78 net per person.

Oscar’s, Conrad Centennial Singapore
Located in Conrad Centennial Singapore, Oscar’s restaurant serves a decent Sunday brunch buffet spread with its emphasis on seafood and local delights. While the space is not as big as compared to Edge, Colony or The Line, I don’t really feel like I was missing out much as the above average quality of the food makes up for it. We had a glimpse of Oscar’s brand new Supercharged Sunday Brunch, definitely much better than before with more quality offerings.
When: Every Sunday 12.30pm to 3.30pm
Price: $98++ per person; top up $20++ with free-flow sparkling wine, house wines and selected cocktails; or $60++ with free-flowing Laurent-Perrier Brut, NV Champagne, house wines and selected cocktails.

Yan Ting, The St. Regis Singapore
If you love dim sum, the weekend dim sum brunch buffet at Yan Ting (read more for our full review here) is like a dream come true. At $108++ per person (food and Chinese tea only), there are more than sixty dishes to enjoy! It’s virtually impossible to try everything unless you have a dinosaur appetite, but we reckon that it’s best to come in a trio or party of four to try more dishes. From the Double-boiled Fresh Abalone Soup with Black Garlic to the Wok-baked Boston Lobster with Superior Stock, this is probably the only dim sum buffet I will return for again.
When: Every Sunday 10.am to 3pm
Price: $108++ per person (food and Chinese tea only); $148++ with house wines, Tiger beer, soft drinks, juices & Chinese Tea; $168++ with “R” de Ruinart Brut, house wines, Tiger beer, soft drinks, juices & Chinese Tea
