I feel that as with a lot of "High End" restaurants serving provincial or regional food often leads the kitchen to forget the "KISS" theory and push the boundaries beyond the recognition of the simple fresh, seasonal, down-to-earth, unsophisticated, uncomplicated, wholesome, genuine and real pure flavoured dishes that allow the individual elements to speak for the dish and why it was given a life to be considered intrinsic to the culture and cuisine it represents! The scallop shells were so overloaded with garlic, chunky capsicum red green yellow and green peppercorns that the meat could have been crab, crocodile or chicken or scallops? But with all said aside, the place does have a nice ambiance, sense of style and the French Champagne was delightful, not too over-chilled and the company pleasant. All in all in no way a wasted afternoon!

This restaurant have a nice ambiance. The staff is friendly too. I tried the baked fish with mango salad (which took about 30 mins to cook) and a soup (can't remember what's the name). It was awesome especially the mango salad!
The staff will also check on you to make sure you are alright and the food is okay.
Though it is pricy, I will still go for second time for the food.

From the initial discussion, to constant follow-up, to greeting and service onsite, to full execution in a very timely manner....they went above and beyond and I would recommend anyone that would like to dine with them individually or with a group, to go there! The food and ambiance would be very tough to beat. Eat out by the garden as well!! Thank you so much, Malis team!!!

Very upscale restaurant, the fish was very good but the deep fried fish was to oily. The pork was a bit hard. The prices are reasonable for a place like this. Maybe I should have tried a different dish.
