Description: Located in the Fullerton Hotel’s sunlit atrium lobby, The Courtyard is the lively setting for all-day dining, whether it is a light meal, a signature Japanese or Indian curry buffet, leisurely afternoon tea, or an elegant cocktail. Tastefully furnished with plush sofas and an idyllic ambience, the experience is complemented by live music during afternoon tea and the toe-tapping rhythms of our jazz quartet in the evenings.

To celebrate our thirtieth wedding anniversary, we shared high tea with our son and his wife at The Courtyard at the Fullerton Hotel. Once again, as on past occasions The Courtyard delivered a high standard of food, drink and service. The service of Lalikumar was outstanding and only added to the enjoyment of our day. Thank you again, High Tea at The Courtyard was a fantastic way to celebrate.

I expected the food quality here would be better than most of the small cafes in Singapore, after all it's a 5 stars hotel.
Me and my mum went there for high tea set and the set allow us to repeat any food from the tea set. However, the good quality is so bad that I didn't repeat any of them and feel upset my stomach stuffed by plain and simple cafe food. The ingredients are so simple, like bagel with duck breast, cream and strawberry chocolate coat, crab meat on bread etc. Can tell they control the cost and.make it without heart.
I would expect the food here close to Robunchon or Dalloyau standard.

Was at the Courtyard @Fullerton Hotel for the Indian Curry buffet. Had a good lunch @$43 per person but the HSBC card had a 1 for 1 promotion which made it an even better deal.
It wasn't a wide spread . Just simple but tasteful choices.
First the good points. The ambience is classy and comfortable with a nice high ceiling .
Service was alright. You get shown your seat, drinks poured, plates cleared and generally with a smile.
Food wise. There was some interesting starters. The mains were the usual Chicken tikka, chicken curry, beef and veg curries, a big sea bass, papadoms, rice and freshly cooked on the spot garlic naans.
Deserts were simple fares, there was gulab jamun in sauce, some other sweet cakes, kueh lapis and fruits. And masala tea from a container.
Generally an enjoyable albeit not a wide spread of choices but sufficient.
Disappointed that coffee and tea was not included in the buffet.
Would go back again as long as promotion is still on :-) otherwise it seem just a tad expensive for Indian food :-) but I suppose it's the Fullerton so...

A very high quality afternoon tea, with so much to choose from that you are almost having a complete meal, instead of just afternoon tea. Service with a smile and comfortable chairs make the day perfect.

An excellent afternoon tea. Plenty of food with seconds of savories, cakes and scones offered with out request. The staff were very attentive and service everything you would expect from the Fullerton, professional yet friendly.

Only slight disappointment was the music was piped and not live as they advertise.

Smoked salmon sandwiches and the Swiss roll were clear leaders on the three tier stand. Scones were very fresh and came a close second.

The white tea was very smooth and refreshing.
