We had our 10th wedding anniversary celebration at Lafite fifteen years ago. Service was excellent, food was great. We decided to go back for our 25th wedding anniversary. Had a poor experience. The night before I called up to make a reservation. It was 9.50 pm and I was told by the operator there is no one to entertain my... More

Dear Guest, Greetings and many thanks for taking the time to share with us the experience you have encountered with our Service Centre. I have personally investigated your feedback and apparently your return call message was not communicated with our Lafite restaurant nor the F&B Restaurant Reservation Information Centre. I must say that we should have better managed our calls... More

Spent a birthday evening in Lafite. The waiters are very attentive and friendly, though the ambience is somewhat not "so" fine. We ordered Wild Mushroom Crepe and grilled duck breast as the starter and two fish dishes as the mains. The dishes were great and definitely one of the best meal I have had. Though a little disappointed by the... More

Lovely place to sit and watch the comings and going of the hotel especially in the evening when you've had a busy day a good drinks menu or just a coffee also get a little bowl of nibbles which is a lovely gesture

Booked a table for six and prepaid about $65 USD a head. Nice table, well set out. The waitress asked if we wanted water and white wine to start, I checked that it was included and she said yes, so 5 of us had a glass of wine. After that, we headed to the buffet. The range was very good,... More

We went for a dinner here recently for our combined birthday celebration. We find the place overrated. There's nothing special that will render us to come back again. Here are the pros and cons of the place: Pros: 1) Food is tasty 2) Plenty of space in between tables 3) Quiet environment Cons: 1) The waiter who attended to us... More

Had dinner here many years ago and I remember it as one the best meals I ever had so I was intrigued to see how it had changed with a new chef. I tried the tasting menu which offered seasonal dishes. Each course was nicely presented but for me it was a bit hit and miss. The mackerel starter was... More

As the title says. perfect choice for quiet and private place, either for personal or professional context. Very good value for the money. Excellent selection of wine. Best French restaurant in town, and I can tell.

Have been to Lafite many time in the past. It has been a bit of a roller coaster ride over the past few years due the changing head chefs and staff turnover in the restaurant. This now seems to be well behind them. The service last night was outstanding. The menu is now clear and has been uncomplicated. The food... More
