This place is fast becoming my family’s favourite place for our Sunday lunches. Although our lunch here today took longer than usual, I’m still as satisfied with this place. They offer a set lunch everyday except Saturdays because they aren’t open for lunch on Saturdays. For S$22+++, you get 3 courses and a coffee or tea to round off your meal. I promise you that you will not be disappointed, service is efficient, the menu changes constantly based on what is in season or what is fresh, the food is good and it is good value for money.

Catch of the day: Parrotfish with Orange and Butter Sauce

In the former menu I used to have the lentils salad with warm goats cheese for my starter, but now that they have changed the menu, I had the marinated beetroot with a blue cheese salad and walnuts. Other things that are always in the appetizer section are the escargots and a soup of the day. For main courses, the house specials are their Red Wine Braised Beef Cheeks with Carrots, Button Mushroom & Parsley, and there are usually lots of choices consisting of a pasta, a risotto and a catch of the day. I ordered the paillote Cod Fish but it was terribly terribly salty, I think someone in the kitchen was daydreaming and triple salted it so I had it sent back. The chef agreed with me but the only problem was that they had run out of cod so I had to order something else and I went with the catch of the day which was parrot fish with an orange and butter sauce. It tasted light and wonderful and the beef cheeks chunk that I stole from my mother’s plate was wonderful as usual. The desserts aren’t disappointing too, they don’t give you a mass produced dessert, but you get a range of choices that include soufflés, ice cream, crème bruleé and such. I’m not a real dessert person so I always have the ice cream which is one of my favourite happy foods. You get three scoops and a choice of vanilla, Belgium chocolate, coffee, macadamia nut and mango and strawberry sorbet. They serve it on a really nice biscuit that I am still trying to reproduce in my kitchen. All I can say is that, I LOVE HAVING LUNCH HERE.

The items you mentioned in the second paragraph. They're part of the set lunch selection or a la carte menu?
