Great Kale Caesar Salad

The kale caesar salad was simply wonderful. We ordered two plates of it. We also like the seafood platter which has oyster, lobster, large prawns, clams, mussels and king crabs. They were so fresh and sweet. The ribeye steak was tender and juicy. Though the restaurant was busy and packed... read more

Disappointing. The menu is classic American (Burgers etc.) but the cooking was below par, even simple things like French fries. Given the prices and the founding Chefs reputation, something might have been amiss! Unless there is change in the kitchen, I would just avoid this restaurant!

The burger was lovely, cut into half already so easy to share. But the seafood casserole was a real Gem! So tasty! A must try. We have also tried the dessert- Durian Royale soufflé with mangosteen sorbet -- sounded so Singaporean but yet so unique that it's the first time I have heard these two being served together in a...

My first visit there was to try a lunch set which came with a friendly price tag (I was a student at that time). The experience was a good one. The meal was meticulously set and the flavours intricate. On subsequent visits, I ordered from a la carte menu which somehow was no longer as expensive as it seemed to... More

When in Singapore I like to come here for a gourmet burger. They unfortunately snuck pickles (which I detest) into my burger though it was no listed and no other condiments were added. That being said, they have a good beer offering. There's almost always a line, but they decide to always leave half the restaurant happy (presumably because coverage... More

Called for lunch here yesterday and ordered the bacon cheese burger. It was really good and cooked to perfection. The place is very attractive and the staff efficient. I don't really enjoy the shopping mall eating experience but this was fine.

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighborhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
