Verdict: 1/2 of us will return. 

French Onion Soup: it was tasteless. I don’t think i really need to elaborate on it further. 

waffles: considering this is the second time that my mum has returned, she mentioned how the first time around the waffles were much better -> in terms of the level of fluffiness and crisp. This time around both waffles were just too airy and not very crispy.

Verdict: 2/2 of us will return!

1. The scallop appetiser was really something different from the usual in a good way, if you like creamy sauces 🙂 Scallop was well cooked => not too raw that it is too mushy and not too over cooked that it tastes like rubber. 

2. Mains:
Seafood linguine was really flavourful. The sauce was not too saltish and overall had an impactful seafood flavour. Linguine was al dente and seafood was really fresh and plentiful. 
Pork Medallion : the first time that I am eating it medium rare – I always thought pork should be cooked till well done . It was really succulent and didn’t have that raw porky after taste. This cooking style was recommended by the friendly waitress and no turning back for me. 

3. Desserts:
was really just nice to share after the filling mains 🙂 . Crispy on the outside, molten in the inside 🙂 

4. Others: 
For one, service here is very good. We did not have a reservation but the waitresses and waiters attended to us very quickly and keep coming back to check in on our progress throughout the meal.

Verdict: 2/2 of us will return!

1. Pasta was not over cooked. we were not too hungry so the smaller portion (mushroom ravioli) was enough for the two of us. The bigger portion (cabonara) was also well executed.

2. loved the sweet potato fries 🙂 was something very different. Well-battered and not too heavy 🙂 very nice indeed.

3. Calamari was also just nothing bad and not spectacularly good. .. like its the average calamari taste across restaurants

Verdict: 1.25/2 of us will return.

1. Appetizers: Calamari was different from what we expected to be : deep fried and crispy. This different is a good kind of different. The squid was not overcooked and had a very pleasant bbq texture to it. Not at all rubbery. Well executed.  The broken pork sausage was quite a good attempt in something different… but didn’t really blow our minds

2. Mains: The fish was really fresh. The texture of it was similar to salmon and cod fish mixed together (if that makes sense).  I really enjoyed it, although I must say it is not as ‘fatty’ in terms of ‘fish oiliness’ comparatively to salmon and cod, but the meat texture was firm and not overcooked.  Well executed.   The beef was quite well done as well, not over cooked and tough.

3. Sides:  I think the picture spoke for itself. It was quite good .

Verdict: 2/2 of us will return

it is quite a hearty meal I must admit. Both of us were stuffed full after the meal.
The fish was well executed, the sides were seared nicely with a little crisp, and yet not drowned in oil.
Garden risotto was very hearty although it was all vegetables, it was pretty substantial.

A very nicely tucked away for chillout sessions or just catching up 🙂
Will like to try the brunch next time 🙂

Verdict: 3/3 of us will return!
Apart from the noisy environment where even though we were sitting next to each other, we couldn’t hear ourselves, I really thought the food was pretty up to expectations.
Appetizers were very different from the usual kinds, and the combinations complimented each other very well.
Mains were all executed well.
To me,  a good steak is defined as it can be eaten without any sauce. And this cut of the meat, where it is quite lean and little fats to keep the steak juicy, it does require quite a fair bit of skill to keep it at a medium rare consistency.
The pork was also good in that it is moist and the accompaniments complimented well.
The crab tortellini was also just nice (although I thought it did looked abit little) in terms of portion size and scallops cooked to perfection.

wanted to stay on for dessert but .. looking at what the other tables had, we just went off somewhere instead.

All of this comfort food,  it was so hard to choose a favourite.
We cleaned out all of it.

And of course, for all the beer lovers out there, they have quite an extensive list of imported beers!
