Here are some genuine guest reviews of BBR:
– “Amazing location and our table was outside in the charming and relaxing patio! The service was outstanding and the Italian food excellent! The food was fresh and so tasty! Vitello tonnato was delicious, Burrata Pugliese like in Italy. Risotto Acquerello alla Milanese, perfect! Ravioli cacio e Pepe, Al denté! Bistecca di tonno, so tender. We finished this gorgeous dinner with the creamy and so delicate Tiramisu. Congratulation to the Manager Quentin and the extraordinary Team! This place is a Gem!” (Biznouk)
– “Great ambiance in the grand dame of Singapore, Raffles Hotel. You feel like stepping into the pages of time into the colonial times of Singapore. Thoughtful and courteous service. Food beautifully presented, including the delicious dessert. Very happy I chose to celebrate my classmate’s birthday here.” (lizquek)
– “By far one of the best Italian restaurants in Singapore. Every time I am there, I always go there for the true taste of Italian cuisine. Wide wine selection.” (121giuliol)
– “Great ambiance. Was there with my two lovely teenagers. The casarecce pasta is a little on the heavy side, and that’s Sicily’s kind of food. Burrata was very creamy and soft! Not the usual Burrata you get at other Italian restaurants. If you like dishes from Tuscany, do give it a try. Staff were all very friendly and attentive.” (WinnieN1071)
– “The food served was of high standard and quality. I had a wonderful time and enjoyed every single dish. Great service, and I’m very happy for the overall experience. I wanted to thank you Bar and Billiards Room and to all the staff especially Theresa, Nick, Monica, Joy, and Anson (wine sommelier) they’re really hospitable and friendly. Definitely will come back again.” (Wanderer6138)
– “It was our second chance to try Osteria BBR. Again, it exceeded our expectations. The food was perfectly cooked. The pizzas were superb. What made our dinner extra special was the service of Nick. He is hands-on and took care of all of us with efficiency and courtesy.” (Cruiser4686)
– “It was a wonderful experience! Really good service, the venue is gorgeous, and the food divine. The plating is beautiful and quality of the food really impressive. The risotto was really yummy. Nice selection of non-alcoholic cocktails also. Baby-friendly atmosphere, and they provided a high chair.” (MBazBouz)
– “Amazing food and service, starters to main course and desserts, a pure joy! Location in Raffles Hotel, magnificent place. Highly recommended.” (Wyounes)
– “Tragic decor of this once beautiful space, it could be an airport lounge. More of a set lunch than a brunch: Some dishes were good but mean portions, I wish I’d photographed the terrible cheese course: four tiny slices of unripe cheese, no condiment, fruits and stale toasted bread on the side. Laughable! The wine was mediocre and we kept having to request refills. Frankly the worst brunch I’ve been to in Singapore which is very sad. Certainly not value for money and not what we expected of Raffles or Ducasse.” (44Mimy)
– “Osteria BBR’s brunch menu is not extensive but very high quality. The veal, lobster, and lamb are must-try items. Service is good, and staff are all very friendly and attentive, especially the receptionist, Theresa, who accommodated our requests immediately. Overall, a good experience and well worth the price.” (Eng1642)
– “Blown away by the Christmas brunch offerings, which boasts free flow of drinks including bubbly, wines, a good range of cocktails, and non-alcoholic beverages. Food-wise, it was almost like their regular menu but free flow of everything! Everything tastes fresh and of quality. Service staff, Krishna and Punitha, were so hospitable, making sure we got everything we ordered (and more!). It was a very busy service day, but they managed to make us feel taken care of.” (adelinetansy)
