Loved the location, away from the busy streets
Loved the structure, minimal, high ceiling, but good lines and the clear PVC allowed you to feel at one with being outside
Small mozzie prob but inside the aircon portion no so much. They put mozzie coils outside so OK
Self serve order and Water a GREAT Idea so as not to incur the 10% service charge
Love the ala carte menu but a shame the free flow Vermicelli of visit #1 is now $3 a bowl
Shame the free carparking is gone too! considering there is not much else in the Gilman complex in the evening (Masons & Timbre for food)
Staff are really nice and helpful
Recommend the
- Coconut cocktail / Lychee cocktail ($18 is standard for Singapore, there are unique too)
- Razor clams
- Grilled Squid
- Grilled Baramunde
- Kangkong........the sauce....amazing flavour
Think twice about the scollops though ....$18 for one is just not worth it despite being very nice

Was curious to see what this place was all about. Gilman Barracks is in the midst of a revamp which has sadly seen the removal of all the old stores here and the introduction of paid parking. Naked Finn seems to be a temporary structure (our walls were PVC) facing a running track. We ordered some cocktails, the coconut and rum which was recommended was very good. The "mimosa" of orange juice and fizzy beer, less so. Two of us had baby squid (good), scallop (yes, just the one) and African lobster. We had an order of the vermicelli which is not free flow but $3 a plate. A very small set of accompanying condiments was provided. The noodles were cold, it would have been good if they were warm. The seafood was well grilled but portions excruciatingly small. We ordered more vermicelli to fill up on. You have to order at the bar, and fill your own water glasses. At these prices, the whole set up felt cheapo and the portions were unsatisfying. A far cry from the days when going out for seafood was a "shiok", filling and satisfying event.

Fresh seafood done well, lightly grilled. Chilled Muscadet under the stars, symphony of bullfrogs, crikets and chatting diners, all in the tropical breeze. How can one find a better experience in the whole country!

A friend invited me for dinner at The Naked Finn after raving about it for some time. We got there about 8:30pm and I immediately liked the ambience. We settled on an outside table and looked thru the menu. We ended up ordering a set menu for $128 (2 pax) which included free flow rice noodles. Veg has a lime flavor but was rather bland, as was the pan fried barramundi. Prawns were quite nice, a soya sauce base marinade. Razor clams were also lacking in flavor (thank goodness for the accompanying condiments). Grilled baby squid had a nice smokiness, but the squid bone/spine was not removed. African lobster was not very fresh, the flesh was mushy.

I truly had a hard time figuring out whether the food was eastern or western, but overall it was the condiments (chilli sauce, lemongrass salt, dark soy sauce, thai style tarmarind chilli) that saved the meal.

BTW, place has a mosquito problem.
