Restaurants & bars

Sarkies, which is located in the lobby of the Victory Annexe, is the hotel’s main restaurant where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served each day. For a more formal affair on Wednesdays to Saturdays, book a table at Java Tree which is named after the tree that stands in the grounds and pre-dates the hotel. The cuisine on offer here ranges from European fare to locally inspired Straits Nyonya dishes. The classy Palm Court is open each day for casual international dishes and tastes of Malaysia. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, a traditional afternoon tea is served here from 3pm to 5pm. The cosy Planters Lounge (temporarily closed) is situated on the sixth floor of the Victory Annexe and is open for casual all-day dining. The final venue at the E&O is Farquhar’s Bar, a classically decorated cocktail bar located by the lobby in the Heritage Wing. On Wednesday to Saturday, you can head here in the evening for pre- and post-dinner drinks and views out over the waterfront.
