food has great taste and portion sizes are VERY generous
just a downside is the tables are very close together (not sure if this configuration was just on the night we dined?)
felt like we were intruding on the next tables conversation just talking at normal volume!

Excellent food, although a little pricey. Don't go past the licorice ice-cream, way better than it sounds

Nice, intimate dining base with great atmosphere and wait staff. I had dinner here, and the menu had an eclectic and interesting variety of options (very good thing if you are a "foodie"!

Went for dinner and was very lucky to get a table without a reservation as the restaurant looked pretty packed from outside.

We had bread for starters and they were served warm and moist, just the way I like it. But do take note that the portion can be rather big for 2 persons. The Fiddlesticks Fried Chicken was definitely the highlight of the night, it paired exceptionally well with the tomato chutney. For mains, I had the Rose Veal Sirloin which was superb; the meat was well flavoured and tender. I also ordered the Duck Fat Roast Rosemary Potatoes as my sides. It was disappointing as the potatoes were not crispy, in fact, they were a tad dry and hard.

Service staffs were friendly and attentive. Overall, I had a good dining experience at Fiddlesticks!
