My husband and I went to dinner with friends and loved it. Just being a door on the side of the street means you can easily just walk by and miss it. It's a small dark space with lots of wood and mirrors, with a 1920's feel to it. The service was quite good a bit too good, as we barely sat down and they were asking what we wanted to order and kept doing so another 2 times before any of us were ready. We started off with cocktails which were made with a lot of experience which was obvious. I ordered the striploin medium rare which was cooked to perfection and my husband ordered the lamb shanks which were so tender and were falling off the bone, delicious! My only one problem was when we ordered the wine (great selection by the way most bottles under SGD100). We ordered a Tassie Pinot which the waitress came to show us before opening and the proceeded to take it away and pour herself a small glass to taste. We found this quite odd and questioned her when she came back. So which she replied she was testing to see if if was corked. There were a couple of obvious problems with this scenario. First off our wine was a screw top, so no issue of it being corked. Secondly if the waitress had been trained properly in wine in the slightest she would understand if it was a bottle with a cork you would be able to smell it straight away without pouring yourself a glass to taste. So would highly recommendt trying this place out for dinner, they just really need to look at training their staff better in wine if they pride themselves on having such a great wine list.
