Is there anything better on a Sunday than all-you-can-eat lobster eggs bennies and bottomless mimosas? We don't think so.
There is literally nothing not to like about Sunday brunch. Not only is it the only acceptable time when endless servings of foie gras go hand-in-hand with delicious plates of French toast, it is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a little day-drinking situation (can you say bottomless mimomas?) Whether you’re planning a boozy brunch to kick off #SundayFunday or looking for a family-friendly affair, our brunch experts have the bases covered when it comes to the best Sunday brunches in Jakarta.
C’s Steak and Seafood at Grand Hyatt
C’s Steak and Seafood, Grand Hyatt’s swanky signature eatery, may just win at Sunday brunch with the ultimate surf and turf all-you-can eat buffet. Just picture the freshest catches of the day – lobsters, prawns, clams, and more – served alongside premium meats waiting to be devoured. Best of all, sweet and savoury souffles (a different flavour introduced every week!) round things off for what will probably be the most decadent meal of the week.

Il Mare at Mulia
Delight your palate at this popular Sunday “free flow wine” brunch, serving up the best in Italian cuisine. Choose from an array of cold cuts and fresh seafood to roast beef and turkey at the carving station. And it’s not as if the Chefs aren’t busy cooking up a storm, they even make time to bring samples to the table. Be sure to leave plenty of room for dessert. Your choices: cakes, mousse, chocolate fondue, or gelato? We choose all four!

Arts Cafe at Raffles
It’s all about the signature dishes at Arts Cafe. The incredible buffet spread is teeming with artfully arranged plates that hold everything from small-bite savouries to pretty patisseries. While you sit back and enjoy the feast, creations fresh from the kitchen go straight to the table, like their Singaporean chili crab stuffed mantao bun. Delish. The option to go bottomless with house wines and champagne is one that you should definitely take advantage of.

Satoo at Shangri-La
Journey around the world in just 3 hours and savour what the world has to offer at this open-kitchen buffet. Begin in India for some hot curries, pappadums, and naan bread, then hop onto China for some noodles and dim sum. Next on the itinerary is the land of the rising sun to sample sashimi and sushi. Then duck back to Indonesia for some local fare. Special mention must go to the jamu stall, which offers traditional herbal concoctions to cure any illness. We give two thumbs up for Satoo’s new and unique open-air extension, which overlooks the hotel’s lush gardens and butterfly-shaped pool.
