“Expensive place but....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We visited this uncontournable place and we were lucky to read review on internet before we go. Check the review of alain 132, it looks like the best tips ever found on trip advisor since i use it. We had some drink in the skybar, wonderfull view, and futhermore at the sunset. Pictures you make can be enlarged and stick on your living room wall (no shame). Also, the infrastructure is amazing from the outside. Staff is trendly, because of the place, but i would suggest you to be carrefull on the bill they give you. For our experience, the bill was allright but we never had the change. According to me, 3 dollars is 3 dollars, and i would prefer to give them as tips whereas to not give me choice.

“Stunning location, disappointing food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Thought that this would be the perfect spot for a business dinner and the location and views are truly stunning. It was a windy evening when we were there. However, the breeze wasn't too much of a problem, but you did have to watch your napkin.

The food was disappointing; both in terms of its quality and its quantity.

And, of course, it came with the associated expensive price tag.

Suggestion: have a drink at the bar, enjoy the view and then move onto one of the many other eateries in Singapore.

“A posh experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

A glass of white wine spritzer cost $29 at the club.....
at the restaurant, for a party of 12 and we had 4 dishes of 6 appetizers with champagne or sparkling wine and it worked out to be $130 per head. Nothing to write about the food and the service because there were a mix up on the reservation. The view and ambience made the trip a memorable experience.

“Expensive, but good view and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

Food and drinks are expensive compared to equivalent elsewhere, but obviously you are paying for the view and the high rent. Food is 'Modern Asian'. Recipes are OK but dishes are lacking finesse in execution. For example, I don't mind seared scallops are are raw in the centre, but they shouldn't be completely raw except for the searing on the outside. My tuna tartare had too much wasabi in it. Sliced duck breast appeared to have been marinaded in an Asian sauce, and was rather ordinary, especially when served with boring old silver beet. The international selection of wines by the glass was good, even if again overpriced. Service was very good, and was actually the best part of the dining experience.

“what a view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

We only visited the bar area which was still well worth the visit for the amazing views of Singapore at night. Cocktails fairly pricey but good quality ingredients and a million dollar view make them worth it :) the only downside was not being able to settle in and just have drinks, you had to have dinner and it was completely booked out so I suggest booking if you want to eat there.

Make sure you wear nice clothes if going into the restaurant or bar as its fresh, modern and upmarket. Definitely put it on your to do list and go at night.
