“It's not just hype, it's true!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Was there for lunch last week. Managed to secure a seat at the bar to catch all the cooking action. Shared a half portion of the famous sea urchin pudding with my lunch companion. It lived up to the hype and more; the sea urchin came in a generous portion completely covering the black squid ink pudding beneath it. The sea urchin was fresh and firm while the pudding (the pudding!!) tasted like I was meeting George Clooney; smooth, sophisticated and sleek. Definitely deserves its star reputation at Lolla. At about S$20/- for half a portion, it was very good value. Wouldn’t recommend the full portion as it would be too rich for even 2 persons to finish it.
The other tapas that we ordered i.e. duck’s breast, smoked eel tortilla and fried Italian greens, left an impression as well. Finished the meal with doughnuts served with lemon curd. The doughnuts were delicate little puffs of fried dough set off perfectly by the tartness of the lemon curd. Great value for money. Strongly recommend.

“Attentive but not intrusive service simple but good quality food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

Called in with my wife on a whim knowing nothing about the place. Was greeted by a lady who I got the feeling ran the joint. The menu was quite simple but everything we ordered was of a very high quality. Delicious rilletes, meat platter, duck fat potatoes and the chocolate dessert with the smokey ice cream was wonderful. They also have a very eclectic wine list featuring lots of boutique vineyards so if you want to try something different check it out. I also really liked the concept of being able to watch the food being prepared in front of your eyes. Great food, attentive service and good atmosphere. Would definitely go back.

“Amazing Food and Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

We have been there several times and every time we are impressed with the selection of daily specials available along with the menu favorites. The duck fat potatoes and scallop carpaccio as starters are not to be missed. If you are looking for something a bit more daring, the Sea Urchin Pudding is excellent. Main course of lamb, beef or fish are the best I have ever had. The wine & champagne selections are also outstanding.

We love sitting at the food bar watching the food being prepared by the chef and his great team. We have been there at the start of the evening and also very late at night after the Eric Clapton concert. We just love the place and the food!

“Gastronomical delight !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

"Sea Urchin Pudding?" "Thanks, but I think I'll pass" "Try it, I bet you'll like it" "Well, alright.."
What a great decision that turned out to be! Right from the Sea Urchin Pudding to the Spanish Tortillas with smoked eel & Donuts with Lemon Curd to finish it all off, the lunch experience at Lolla was nothing short of amazing. Awesome food. Every single dish tasted excellent and seeing it getting prepared in front of you just adds to the experience. The food is rich and amazing with great tantalizing tastes. The service was excellent and the ambiance too is apt for a casual lunch or dinner. We came here for a business lunch and it exceeded our expectations. Slightly higher pricing with around $100 per person including wine. Highly recommended.
