Upon entering the restaurant, the first eye catching element is the expansive three-metre long meat carving station! Highlighting an impressive and comprehensive display of three to four top-quality cuts of beef, lamb, pork and chicken. An experienced carver is always on the ready to serve up customers’ preferred cuts. Just behind the carving station is a range of top-of-the-line roasting ovens and rotisserie where the meats are carefully prepared daily for diners.

Dessert Station
Apologies to the poor lighting at their dessert station which made the photo so dull... 

Signature English Trifle Cake
(Only available during Dinner Buffet)
 This is a dessert made with fruit, a thin layer of sponge fingers soaked in sherry or another fortified wine, custard & whipped cream. So far only The Carvery has this extraordinary dessert in Singapore! If you ask me, honestly I felt that the standard of this dessert has dropped compared to last time. The overall texture was not well-balanced. But if you have not tried their english trifle before, I think this dessert still stands out.

Overall Impression: The service here was alright, just that the plates were not cleared fast. The food quality here was not bad. As you can see from the above photos, the dishes offered here were mostly healthy and home-cooked food type, so do not expect anything lavish. As they do not have wide selection of food, you might feel disappointed if you're a big eater. For me I'm a medium eater, so this kind of selection is good enough for me. :)

I felt that this place is really suitable for families as the food were mostly healthy type. As for the desserts, the pastry chef has to put in some effort to improve the quality and the selection. The dessert selection here are more or less boring & the same kind. They served quite good coffee here. They have changed the tea brand from The Gryphon to "The 1872 Clipper Tea Co." now. But I still prefer the Gryphon tea brand leh. Sobz Sobz.. 

Don't tu liaoz.. The 1 for 1 deal only available till end June! Even no wide variety of food also still worth it!!! Chiong arr.....................

After the dinner buffet, you still can come out to have a stroll at the poolside as well as hop over to Aqua Luna for some drinks - All at same floor, so convenient! (Photo below) 

Aqua Luna - Romantic Ambience at Night

Aqua Luna which is just outside The Carvery, is an alfresco bar situated on the infinity pool. I think this is really cool, isn't it?!

(Subject to changes)

Overall Impression: The food quality at Element restaurant has improved compared to my visit few years back. As this is a high tea buffet, I would expect to see wide variety desserts and quality dessert selection. But the desserts here were quite a let down and the selection are more or less the same & boring each time I've visited. The rest of the food here were mostly quite good! The service here was not bad but do not compare the service with those 5 star hotels. Overall this place is worth a visit, great for gatherings!
