Wonderful food served here. Very homely atmosphere and the semi open concept kitchen means you get to see what goes on behind the scenes. Good quality food served at decent prices but be prepared to wait if the restaurant is busy.

Discovered this little gem of an eatery serendipitously. Very impressed by the care and attention to detail. The chef wipes the edge of the service dish before introducing garnishing e.g. chilli flakes etc. Each portion is cooked individually. We enjoyed the Tomato Soup. It was so good that we ordered an additional portion. The Aglio Olio is one of the... More

Small but nice ambiance too. You wouldn't expect to find such nice food in HDB flat;). We patronised the place as couple and had very nice lamb rib and clams. Mushroom soup is highly recommended as it is less salty.

Was here last night for Valentines Day and it was another awesome eating experience. Every dish was great as always. Snapper, calamari pasta, clams for an appetizer, homemade bread. This is a small cozy place in an older mall centre near Bugis and Bras Basah. A very unlikely place to find a restaurant like this; I found it by accident... More

Great place to have a nice quite Christmas dinner before going for caroling. Tables are limited but the small kitchen staff can cook delicious food. Round your dinner off with salted caramel chocolate dessert. Better book for festive days.

"Why would you choose to eat in a airconditioned restaurant opposite a local coffeeshop?" - That was our thoughts for several times we passed by this place. And then one day, our curiosity overpowered us and we were glad we did get curious. You don't get all smiles and bows from the service staff. In fact, 5 minutes sitting down,... More

Introduced to this nice eatery by a new friend who works at the nearby Singapore Management University. You'll have to look out for this little but smart restaurant of about 30 covers. Arriving via Queen street Waterloo Centre is marked as block 261, opposite Wilby Residences and kitty corner to the Royal hotel. Approaching via Waterloo Road, it's on the... More

We have been here a few times already, and it is one of our favourite restaurants for western food. It is a small casual restaurant located in an old housing board neighbourhood in Waterloo Street. They change their menu regularly. Their food is fresh, creative and delicious, and reasonably priced. Best spaghetti bolognese in town hands down. Full bodied meat... More

Went here for dinner with another couple this place is a hidden gem right across from a food court in a complex on Waterloo Street . Amazing menu, friendliest people and a very warm atmosphere. The whole meal was amazing from the thin crust pizza appetizer to the desserts. High end cooking in a very unassuming place at very reasonable... More
