The English afternoon tea is a time-honoured tradition that dates back to 1885 – now presented at Palm Court which also offers a selection of ethnic Asian inspired dishes and casual international fare for all day dining. Java Tree serves Straits Nyonya recipes and classic European dishes in an elegant setting while Sarkies is a perennial favourite for its splendid buffet-spread of Malaysian and international delights. At the Planters Lounge, continental dishes are available from its menu. For refreshing and well-made cocktails or the perfect pint, the new Farquhar’s Bar is the place to be. Whether cosily seated indoors, semi-formal dining, outdoors at the seafront verandahs or poolside, there is something to suit every taste and fancy at the E&O.
