A delicious meal which was beyond our expectations. We arrived at restaurant without a reservation so the hostess was unable to give us an outside table as all reserved, however the ambience inside is lovely & we were offered a window table. The air conditioning was blasting out & when the hostess saw that I was feeling uncomfortable she immediately offered to adjust the a/c so within a minute the temperature was perfect.
We both chose the 3 course menu which also includes tea/coffee (& amuse bouche). It was a great choice - all courses cooked to perfection & presented beautifully. The tastes were exquisite & as good as we find in any top London restaurant.
Would definitely recommend this restaurant & return here again. The food, service & ambience all 5*

We stayed at the Mandarin for 4 nights in March 2013, and had dinner one evening to celebrate my mum's 60th birthday (as a group of six). The meal was simply outstanding. Whilst it's very expensive, the quality of food matched the prices and everyone had great meals. The wine selection was good but unsurprisingly expensive (like most Asian cities).

We also enjoyed lunch from Dolce Vita on their terrace next to the pool during our stay, and again this was fantastic. Such great memories eating some pasta and pizza whilst sipping wine next to the pool, looking out over the marina and the Marina Bay Sands opposite!

Being seated on the terrace, next to the pool, with the CBD right in front of us, the first nice thing about Dolce Vita is the place in itself. Then comes the service, very professional, efficient and smiling. And finally the food, not exceptional but very good, and coming at a reasonable price. A place I definitely recommend.

The food is nothing special. I ordered the Pasta Trio (Chef's choice). The meal was not when served and rather bland. My better half made the same comment about his meal.

Booked a table for our honeymoon and the email confirmation promised to make it romantic, but wow the service we've just had was simply stunning!!! Jan & Vanessa were phenomenal, attentive but not intrusive, giving advise and guidance on the menu and their recommendations were spot on. The food and wines were divine, the location heavenly and the service and thoughtless of the aforementioned staff made it a truly memorable night and one that we will always treasure. Thank you. xx
