visited the Club street outlet for a set lunch for a business meeting.
Food was as usually of a very high quality.
Pricing at S$ 29++ for a 3 course lunch is perfect.
Ambience is god for a business meeting
Will go there again soon.

The place is stunning in the middle of the gardens, you do not feel in Singapore. The food was good and the white wines were amazing!

Like most of the other restaurants at Rochester Park once you get past the amazing setting and the cool vibe what you are left with is service that is lacking polish and food that is typically average especially given the price that is charged.

A three-person party was turned away in front of us as they had no reservations .My partner and I were able to get some space in the bar area. We decided to share a pizza for entree and then move on to pasta for the main. The Mozzarella and Ham pizza was out very quickly - in less than ten minutes - and was okay. A little too oily and the base was a bit inconsistent with some bubbles in it. My spaghetti was under-done - not quite al dente and probably needed another minute or two. My partner's penne was well under-done and nowhere near al dente. Cooking pasta is pretty easy and you would expect that an Italian restaurant would nail it every time so it is disappointing when they get it wrong.

As we were sitting in the bar area we were exposed to another party's cigarette and cigar smoke. We mentioned it on the way out and the response from the staff was poor. They looked stunned, embarrassed and like they didn't know what to do or say. There were empty tables in the restaurant part right throughout the time that we were there and they easily could have seated us away from the bar and the smoke.

Another issue was the amount of time that it took the staff to return the change after we had paid the bill. It was well over ten minutes and on top of the poor food and smoke summed up the whole experience.

The setting is fantastic and the restaurant looks great and it is a shame that the food and service lets it down.

There are far better Italian restaurants all over Singapore with better food and service. I would advise readers to give this place a miss.

A Sunday brunch doesn't get better than this. Good food, nice choices of wines to choose from, and one can go out to other cafes close by for a coffee. And there you have it, a Sunday well spent!
Oh btw, around 50-70 SGD per head...

Remember, Singapore is rather humid a place, so weather is all too important, since the best seatings at this place are outside.

I went to this place with friends and just loved it. This place had some really nice food. Especially the Pizza and the Tiramisu which was to die for. The location of this place is also very nice so you can spend some time here selecting some nice restaurants before zeroing on this one.
