Lovely tapas

This is the sister restaurant of Gianni's, located 2 shops away. However, it's much bigger and has an open, airy feeling about it, befitting it's aspirations to be a Mediterranean restaurant. Much of the items on the menu are shared with Gianni's, with waiters furtively using the back alley to... read more

Went for birthday celebration with friends. TJ the server did a fantastic job with recommendations family style tapas for the table to share try the Gambas. Extended pizza offerings. Loved the tiger prawns and calamaris. Perfectly cooked lamb shank and fresh Scottish salmon as daily special served with Tuscan salad...loved it. Exceptional chocolate lava cake for dessert.

Very nice food presentation, taste great, wonderful atmosphere and great service! The only one thing I don't like is the price, haha! Way much higher than my expectation. But overall is really good. Should try!

I never tire of going to this little restaurant. It serves the best steaks ever . The price is really good : Same digits as in Singapore, but here you pay in ringgits. The staff is ever willing to let you choose either the Sweet Water menu or the menu from the sister restaurant, Gianni. Gianni's has the fantastic tomato... More

Upon arrival, we were greeted by the staff, the ambiance is very welcoming, the decos are not exactly Mediterranean but it really doesn't matter. The good thing is... More
