Most important thing first: The food was quite tasty, however it comes with a price tag... For two main courses + soft drinks we payed more than 100 SGD. With drinks and / or starter / dessert you can easily reach 200 bucks for a couple. The restaurant is relatively small and they squeeze-in as many table as possible. You... More

The food was ok tasty and plenty but a little expensive for what you had. Portions were quite large but bulked up with the cheaper ingredients! We enjoyed the food, the service was average for the region but we wouldn't say it was very good value for the price paid.

I've been here many times over the last decade and the high standards in the ingredients, cooking and service has been maintained consistently. Vivian the owner is friendly and passionate about her food, offers great personal service along with her staff of mainly Filippinos. The Vera Cruz - fish baked in a rich tomato broth with some chilli and spices... More

This is my second visit to the restaurant . I find that they have added new items to the menu and service was just as good. For starters, I ordered mushrooms sautéed with garlic and chile guajillo. It was tangy, a little spicy and extremely yums. The crabmeat quesadilla was moist and tasty, and went very well with my 84-year... More

Whoever hired the staff did a great job. It was nice to sit down at a non-high end restaurant (a normal eatery) in Singapore and have great service. I know that sounds a bit high and mightly, but Singaporeans and non Singaporeans alike, in Singapore, all voice the same complaints about the low level of service at restaurants. Guacamole was...
