“Lovely decor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Came here with my business partner for a discussion, and we spent more time talking about the lovely decor and ambience.

We enjoyed the food there as well!

“Nice french style but just okay.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

If your looking for something new to taste, the place is a worth to try. But if you have more options, consider it. The place is just okay, the menu are just okay, and the price is kinda average to pricey based how it really good. Desserts are good. A place good for hangouts.

“Over-rated!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Visited the cafe on 26 Jan 2014 for dinner with two kids.

AMBIENCE & CLEANLINESS
Nice decor and ambience, but cafe is getting tired-looking with stains on the wall. Toilet clean but shabby and does not reflect the nice decor at restaurant. Toilet roll also not on wall and has to manually pick up from above toilet bowl.

FOOD
We ordered:
A) Country style mushroom soup - too salty and heavy. Too much cream. Even my mushroom-soup-lover son cannot finish the soup.

B) Classic French Onion soup - too peppery for my liking.

C) Prawn crumble (Spagetti cooked ago olio style with anchovy crumble) - again too oily! Noodles are practically soaking in oil. Anchovy crumble also toooo salty!

D) Wild Mushroom Risotto - too salty and heavy with cream. My daughter refused to eat.

E) Organic Ying Yang tea - a combination of peppermint and green tea. Very fragrant and refreshing after all the salty and oily dish.

PRICE
On average, we spent $34 per person (1 adult + 2 kids)

SERVICE
Prompt but not friendly. Obviously understaffed as was not able to get staff's attention when need something.

OVERALL
My definition of a good meal is to have a good balance in taste. Whether the meal is from a foodcourt or an expensive restautant. For the price i pay at Antoinette, i am totally disappointed with their standard,
With such a nice ambience, it's pity that their dishes cannot keep up to it.
I would not return simply because of its ambiemce.
This place is also not kids friendly as there is no plastic cutlery.

“Pricey but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

Nice french style restaurant with coffee, lots of sweets, decent breakfast. Not really quick and attentive service, but still ok.

“Delectable Cakes and a Lovely Ambience ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

I walked past this cafe recently and what struck me was the lovely ambience and cosy atmosphere. The decor was French-influenced with ornate furniture. In the cafe, a display table showcasing their Christmas take-aways were beautifully laid out.
We were there during tea-time, so we ordered Antoinette's signature cake, appropriately named 'Antoinette' and the 'Strawberry Shortcake'. The cakes were light and did not feel like we were consuming calorie-laden pieces. The signature piece had the right amount of chocolate and a tinge of lemon for that added sourish flavour. It was unfortunate that we were seated next to a table of 15 or so, most of whom were obliviously that there were other patrons in the cafe.
Overall, a nice place to hang out on a lazy afternoon.
