Hands up those of you who would love luxuriating in a long Sunday brunch complete with free-flow bubbly? I would too, but such affairs are usually in excess of $100 especially if you are talking about hotel buffets. Here’s a place that comes in at just under $100++ ($98++), not much cheaper but every little bit helps right? The price must be alright because it was completely full indoors when I was there.
Check out Senso Ristorante & Bar, whose Sunday Prosecco Brunch includes a buffet spread of antipasti (such as Normandy Oysters, Prawns, Italian Cold Cuts) and desserts. There are also a few mains to choose from, with no limit on the number of orders. There is also a live station every week, ranging from a Raclette Cheese station to a Roast Beef carving station.
So why Senso? If you want a Prosecco Brunch with a strong focus on Italian food, this is the place to be. They have a huge selection of Italian antipasti such as cold cuts, carpaccio, caprese and lots more. The ambience is also very nice as the restaurant is housed in a cosy heritage shop house. In fact this unique location is one of the reasons Senso has been on my radar for so many years.
That is a huge selection of cold cuts, including salami, mortadella and aged parma ham! And in the background, 3 different types of carpaccio!
Can’t be an Italian buffet without cheese….
First round of attack.
Lobster Ravioli with Saffron Sauce
Rigatoni Eggplant, Yellow chicken breast, Crabmeat Taglierini and pork belly with truffle polenta

Every Italian restaurant should have a good tiramisu.
In conclusion, Senso has definitely put up a worthy spread of appetisers and desserts. Went back for 3 servings of the prawn and scallop appetiser! I am however in 2 minds about the mains which you order ala minute. Ala minute is good because then you are guaranteed food that has not been sitting around for a long while. However, the 4 options available that day were the Seabass Fillet, Salmon Fillet, Pork Belly and Yellow Chicken Breast. Not really a wide variety if you ask me, given that 2 out of 4 are fish dishes. Also there are no red meat options available, which was a little disappointing. I think Senso just has to tweak the menu offerings a little and they should then have a winner.
