Visited on 1st May 2015 (Fri). With plush sofas and an idyllic ambience, The Courtyard is a pampering experience for light meal, afternoon tea or chocolate buffet etc. In the evenings, The Courtyard has the perfect casual yet elegant ambience to sip on your favourite cocktail and unwind, of course not forgetting their famed chocolate buffet.

Chocolate Buffet only available on every Fri and Sat from 8 to 11pm on normal days

Price: $38++ per person 

(With Free Flow of Regular Coffee and Tea of the Day + Live Violin Music)

I came here because of this can you believe? Lol... Cos without their soothing violin music in the background, this chocolate buffet will be very dull... They really add on to an enjoyable buffet experience for us! Kudos to the 2 violinist!

Chocolate Beverages Counter
There were 8 types of chocolate beverages to select from. 

4 from the left: White Chocolate choices

4 from the right: Dark Chocolate choices

We chose 1 of the white choco and 1 of the dark choco. Conclusion: Dark choco tasted better!

The ice-cream here always melted very fast. Quite low-quality ice-cream...

Crepes with chocolate inside! it's nice but too bad it was always cold...

I was expecting this chocolate cake (Or we usually call this Lava Cake) to be good, but it tasted very ordinary, Most other restaurants served better lava cake than this. The chocolate taste of this cake was very mild, and there wasn't much fudge in the center.


Visited on 4 April 2015 (Sat) during Easter week.


Tea of the day was Jasmine Tea. Very light and nice!

Overall Impression: The service on our first visit on 4th April during Easter week was impeccable. (Probably it's not that crowded and different manager served us) 

But the service on our last visit during 1st May was not so good. Plates were not cleared for a very long time (And if our table has 4 things to clear, they only clear 1 or 2 and left the remaining plates or empty shooter glass there, not sure if they cannot see properly?)

The chocolate buffet quality was between average to slightly above average. With the romantic ambience + soothing classical live violin music to go along with the buffet at $38++ per pax, this is definitely a steal!


3-Tier Afternoon Tea (Refillable) +
 Free Flow Coffee & Tea Selection

Afternoon Tea - Price: $43++ per person 

Be serenaded by live violin music in the afternoon, during afternoon tea!

Refillable high tea items + Free flow of coffee/tea + Live classical music + Nice Ambience at $43++ per person is really worth it!

Monday to Friday: 3.00pm to 6.00pm
Saturday, Sunday & Public Holiday: 2.00pm to 4.00pm (1st seating), 4.30pm to 6.00pm (2nd seating)
