Raffles Hotels & Resorts have a range of unique dining options that immerse guests in the best of local cuisine:
Private dining in the two Michelin starred celebrity chef Sergi Arola’s Arola restaurant in Raffles Istanbul, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Guests are invited to enjoy an evening in the 12 person private dining room with its own kitchen where Omar Mallen Mosquera, chef de cuisine, cooks for the guests. For celebrations, the private dining room of Arola is the best place to savour their creative Spanish tapas and main dishes or make an entirely individual menu for the event.
Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris
Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris has designed a special and exclusive gourmet experience for its guests: A taste of Paris. During this culinary journey, the executive chef Laurent André takes care of his guests offering them a Parisian breakfast at Le Bar Long, a tour of local markets and regional producers, private cooking classes at the one Michelin Star restaurant Il Carpaccio, and finally, a tasting with wine pairings.
The Art’s Café at Raffles Jakarta redefines a favourite Singaporean dish, the Chilli Crab. It is traditionally eaten with bare hands as a means to savour the juicy crab meat, but the Raffles Jakarta version of Chilli Crab uses King crab meat enveloped in a soft brioche, smothered in tomato chilli gravy.
Aptly described by chef Corrado Pani at Solo Bistronomia as “almost like a beautiful palette cleanser,” the Solo Limone is made out of seven different textures of lemon from jelly to powder, sorbet to mousse. Chef Corrado’s signature dessert at Raffles Dubai is light yet flavourful, with a touch of yuzu caviar as a garnish, a tart dessert was never so refreshing.
The annual New Year Eve’s Gala Ball at Raffles Singapore is a well-loved tradition that has remained on the hotel’s social calendar since the early 1900s. For decades, the lobby was the main dining room that doubled as a dancing hall where balls and skating parties took place. Commemorating this tradition, guests are invited to welcome the New Year in the hotel lobby where guests can enjoy butler-passed canapés whilst sipping champagne, completed with a specially crafted 6-course dinner.
Guests can now host a 5-star dining experience in a luxurious executive suite or presidential suite at Raffles Makati. Craft a personalised menu or choose from a superb selection of sumptuous culinary concoctions for private parties and exclusive social gatherings. Enjoy a culinary feast personally prepared by the innovative executive chef Wade James and his expert team of master chefs.
