“Great location but foods only average”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Had lunch at this restaurant on a number of occassions. Great place to people watch but we have noticed that the quality of food has deteriorated over the last couple of years. Was my daughters favourite place for a burger but we don't go anymore. There is so much choice in the area at comparable of lower prices that's better. The lunch buffet does look good but we've never tried it.

Siting outdoors is great, however we were getting fed up with inhaling smoke over lunch. There is a counter at the end of the cafe where smokers sit. Unfortunately if the wind blows in the wrong directions it comes straight through the restaurant.

We have always found the serice to be efficient and friendly. Prices are as one would expect at the Marriott.

“Outstanding breakfast buffet”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

First, I must start this review by saying that as a Marriott Platinum Elite member, we did not have to pay the $38 per person charge for the breakfast buffet each morning as this is one of the benefits offered to Elite members at this hotel. Personally, I'm not a big breakfast fan so I'd find it hard to justify paying $38 for any breakfast buffet but if any buffet would be worth paying $38 for, this one would have to be considered.

The quality and quantity of food offered was excellent. They offer a wide variety of both western and Asian selections. Made to order eggs, wide variety of fresh fruit, a daily made to order fresh fruit smoothie bar, noodles, meats, fresh baked breads and pastries (I couldn't get enough of the cinnamon raisin bread). The choices go on and on. They also include freshly made specialty coffees such as cappuccinos, espressos and lattes.

The only regret I had over the five days we ate here were the couple of extra pounds I'm sure I added to my waistline at the end of our stay!

The restaurant has a very relaxing and laid back atmosphere with a huge center island cooking area. You can eat inside or outside and people watch along famous Orchard Rd. There is a full service bar in the outside dining area as well.

I can't speak to the quality of food for lunch or dinner but judging how crowded the restaurant was during these times it must be just as good as breakfast,

Definitely give it a try, even with the $38 price tag and absolutely take advantage and eat here if you're a Elite member staying at the Marriott.You can't beat the price!

“Best crayfish laksa”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

I like to think that I am a bit of a laksa connoisseur and this is the best I have ever tasted. In fact I had to go back twice just to make sure.

While we were there they were doing a drinks promotion of buy one get one free on the cocktails so that was a good excuse to go through the cocktail list as well.

Service was efficient and staff helpful but the main attraction of this cafe would be the location as you can sit and enjoy good food and people watch at the same time. Ideally located!

“good location for after shopping”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

I always come here, cos the location is the best! And you can find it easy just at the corner of orchard road. A coffee is a must, normally I only have coffee here, never order food.
Nice cafe you can sit at the bar table, watch many funny person walking in front of you. I like this coffee shop.

“Best for people watching”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

This is the best place in Singapore for having a beer and watching the world go by.

Great selection of beers and the food is varied and excellent. service is really good as well.

Not exactly cheap, it is after all part of a five star hotel, nut well worth it.
