We'd sat ourselves down for about ten minutes before anyone noticed us, it took another fifteen before our table was cleared of the previous diners' plates, another ten before our order was taken, and two reminders about our wine that took forever to come. Then, they got our order wrong and were less than apologetic. Their response? "Huh?" followed by... More

We ordered wine and three different dishes. Soup was too salty, duck breast salad (can't find words) and a pizza without any,ANY, taste at all with greenish tomatoes. Cutlery and napkins we had to ask twice. The bar is toppled with dirty dishes all the time we had to spend there not recommended at all

The place looked really nice, so we decided to have dinner here. We ordered two pizzas to share, it toke ages (>30 min) and we had to ask the waiter two-times until we got it served. It was the worst pizzas I ever had, they were dry, no real taste and overpriced. Also the jug of lager beer we had... More

We went to the Holland Village branch.I ordered the spatchcock chicken and my partner ordered the ribeye steak. The steak was, according to him, OK but not that great. The spatchcock chicken...Now that's an experience. The presentation was relatively unique. All the food was served on chopping boards. To cut the story short, the chicken tasted like it had taken...

Don't know if the restaurant has been reading its reviews, but this evening (Saturday) it was certainly doing better. Service was efficient and the food was tasty and well presented. Had the Beef Short Rib that was served on a wooden plater with wedges and salad ($26).

Found the ArchiPelago draught ales to our taste. Staff lacks ALL that it should have & know in order to provide good, attentive, considerate service. Ergo, service, such as it was, was the opposite of all that. Do consider another place, perhaps a dearth of customers will open management's eyes.

Stumbled across this place during our first night in Singapore and thought that given it's location, which is central and near the food markets it would provide a good option for dinner. Very mistaken. First problem was trying to speak to someone to arrange a table. No central point organizing and the waiting staff were all either too busy or... More

My son and I had a concert to attend, and circumstances led us to try eating near the Esplanade. Our boundary conditions for this were as follows: 1. Him – recently becoming very food-aware, he wanted to avoid deep-fried, and idle-calorie-laden fare. 2. Me – increasingly into raw and simple tastes driven by quality of ingredients, even less into standard... More

This place will not last long, it is awful. The saga begins when my wife try's to book, only to be told they are not taking reservations. So we think we'll just wonder pass and the place is empty. So we go in and get a get a seat. I ordered the burger, she ordered the beef cheeks. First I... More

The pasta was edible. The pizza was lacking most characteristics of a pizza. The service was inexcusable. The apology was lacking. Go elsewhere.
