Dont go for the ribs unless you like them crunchy. I prefer a slow cooked, soft and tender type. Everything was good, drinks, service, value.

My husband and I stopped in here on our way up to our room. The local beer QV light was and delicious! I had a Caesar, which had a great level of spice, and tasty celery salt mix on the rim. The celery and lime were fresh and generous. The location has a beautiful view of the harbour at night,... More

The restaurant staff were very pleasant and the service was excellent. Although the restaurant is a little outdated it was very clean. I would recommend the restaurant....especially the mussels.

The food was bland with meagre portions and way overpriced. We would advise finding an alternative unless you're in a hurry and need to eat at the restaurant.

Too bad because the views from the dining room are beautiful. Overpriced, stale and in need of a major facelift. Specifically asked if the fish was fresh with an answer of "yes".... Can't fool a native newf! It wasn't fresh. Our service was soooo slow and it seemed our waiter would've liked to have been anywhere other than doing his... More

We went there as we could walk from the Sheraton and did not want to drive around looking for a parking spot which are at a premium on Water/Duckworth streets. The service was good, our waitress friendly and attentive. Resteraunt was loud, people appeared to be having a good time. My chicken Portabello pasta had to be returned as it... More

Limited selections on the buffet, cooked items mostly cold, fruit was lacking in type and taste, and overall expected a better quality meal than was offered. Price was reasonable at $14 per person. Tables a little difficult to navigate and nearly fell stepping down from raised platform where I was seated. Agreement with hotel allows charging bill to room which... More

Just got back from dinner at Rumpelstiltskins. Started with the mussels, they we so plump and sweet, I almost didn't need the garlic butter which was a nice change from the usual white wine sauce. The lasagna was just right and the blackened shrimp was spicy enough to make your lips tingle! Jason was friendly and helpful. The harbour view... More

The view here is so nice, looking out on the harbor while eating was enjoyable. Our waitress was very friendly and seemed happy to be there, which isn't always the case with servers I find, so that was nice. The drinks are really good here, they make the best Singapore sling I've ever had! However, the food was mediocre. My... More

On 22 June 2014, following a family reunion, we arrived with a group of 25 for a 6:45 reservation. By 7:30, we had finally managed to put in orders with a server who was pleasant but inattentive. A full 1.5 hours later, we received our food. It was tasty, but the damage was done: our group was famished and out... More
