If you want to eat between 6.00 and 8 p.m., you'll likely need to book early for this very popular seafood restaurant at Robertson Quay. The oysters are among the best I've tasted anywhere in the world.
They offer a trio - two fresh oysters from Australia, two from New Zealand and two from USA.
Now you might think an oyster is an oyster is an oyster is a mollusc - and you're right! But there are subtle taste differences and that's what makes this dish interesting.
If you're not into fresh oysters, then there's a range of styles to choose from and a range of other dishes not related to oysters. Good service, a good bar and reasonable prices, all within a few metres of the Singapore River.

Service is ok. Food variety is reasonable. Biggest advatage is that kitchen open late. Till 1am! That's late & quite unusual. It only opens at 5pm so that explains part of it.

I had high hopes for given the name of the place, I walked in to meet some friendly and we were seated at the bar looking across the oyster bar and things went downhill from there.

Mojito menu was quite impressive and a few decent drinks kept the night moving forward. We ordered the oyster platter and then 40 minutes later we were told they were out of the French oysters when in fact the waiter simply forgot to put our order in. We then got our oysters quite quickly and they were decent but way overpriced.

We ordered a few extra platters to share and they were ok, a friend had one of the garlic oil things and there was so much garlic I thought he was about to pass out, perhaps he is a vampire.

The menu is confusing and tries too hard to please everyone and simply fails in the process. I am sick of these menus which try and cater for too many people with substandard food. The vegetarian menu had fries as an option, incredibly condescending if I was a vegetarian, the other option was some vegetables in a bowl and that was the extent.

Payed the bill and left, overall not a wonderful experience and don't think I will be back again.

The oysters were tasty, especially with special salt prepared by the chef. The rest of the food were pretty average and was quite noisy. The Chardonnay was fine and went well with the oysters.

The oysters were very good, but our salmon/tuna carpaccio tasted terrible. I also took a salad with grapefruit which was good.. The mojito menu was brilliant and we've tried quite a few.
However, it's a bit overpriced for the offered level.
