Old school Western food

A family cafe from a bygone era that has probably seen better days its neighbourhood Holland Village which has long lost its lustre. Still a decent place for a meal of traditional Western food just for the good old days.

Called for dinner reservations. Wanted indoor seating which was full so the person on the phone said to go at a certain time to get indoor seating. Went there as advised and still full indoors. Had to wait and she wasn't apologetic for giving incorrect info. My friend's Angus steak was a poor cut but my tenderloin was good. Medium... More

I chanced upon this place when suggested tea at Holland Village. I thought i was so familiar with the modern eateries here. But lo & behold I was introduced to this charming English restaurant. Tucked at a corner hidden by the concrete of the pedestrian walkway. I'm charmed. Love the old fashioned setting. Old songs as playing for a gramophone.... More

A friend suggested meeting there for Hi-Tea and I was truly ignorant of the fact that Fosters has been around for a long time. I was really impressed with their scones and sandwiches for the price that they charged. The service was attentive and I returned with my Mum to give her the experience, which she thoroughly enjoyed too.

The service itself (aside from an old uncle who exuded relax aura) is sort of a rushy. It’s not that staffs are rude or something, they are okay just that they run around the restaurant. To give the benefit of the doubt, perhaps they were short-handed that night. Nevertheless, waiters running around isn’t the best thing to have when customers... More

Still the best carpetbag steak in town thrown in with the best happy hour package leaves nothing to imagination. A perennial favourite.

Great oxtail soup. Must eat for every visit. Other food items are generally good. Service staff are great too. Worthwhile to dine here. For lunch and dinner.

I can't believe it took me so many years to visit Fosters. It is unfortunately at a location which is very easy to miss. All these years I thought it was just a cafe nothing worth visiting. How wrong was I! We went there on a Sunday evening, saw it has 2 for SGD 15 premium house pour wine. Either... More

Right at the end of the row of shophouses, is this cosy easily missed cafe. It's famous for steaks and the Devonshire cream tea set. We were there for a quick weekday lunch and so had their ham and cheese toast and Fosters club sandwich. Both were tasty though unremarkable. Came with large serving of fries and salad so the...

The place was packed (make a reservation) with great live music (guitarist). The next time I was there with family I had the Oxtail Stew I'd been wanttng since I saw... More
