I love their food, their drinks and as well as their service provided by the staff. Love their ambience. Will come back soon one day.
This place has good food good ambience, the location is also okay - pretty near to buona vista. Will definitely go for their 1-1 offers again
Overall, I would say nice atmosphere for a dinner with friends!! Food wise is great and the waiters are quite attentive! Will be definitely visit again
Great food! Nice ambience if a bit empty, but the waiters were extremely attentive. We got a three course meal and there were cute robotic servers deployed to assist us too.
I bought the set lunch groupon voucher. For $14.90, you had a choice of 1 of 3 appetisers - 1 samosa, 2 pieces of bruschetta or 4 mid-joint wings, a main of either sirloin steak with fries, grilled salmon with mash potato or chicken tikka wakhanwala with rice and a slice of mango passion cake. Cali Café is located in the Park Avenue Rochester. On a weekday afternoon, it was a quaint little restaurant that could easily be passed by without people noticing it. It seems like a nice, quiet and comfortable place to sit and chill with your colleagues over a beer after a long day’s work if you happen to work in the area. We ordered the wings, bruschetta, salmon and steak. The bruschetta served consisted of 2 slices topped with diced tomato and cucumber. Nothing out of the ordinary but quite palatable. The wings were served crispy and hot, just the way fried wings should be. The salmon was served with some boiled vegetable and quite a generous serving of mashed potato. The filet of salmon was very big and thick. It was moist and nicely seasoned with the skin cooked to crispy perfection. The steak had a nice colour all around and while it could have been a little more tender, it did taste nice and juicy with the accompanying layer of fat. The mushroom sauce had pretty big visible pieces of sautéed onions and mushrooms and complemented the steak well. By the time we reached dessert, we were already quite full so we were quite glad to see that the slice of cake was just a small square piece drizzled with chocolate and strawberry sauce. The cake was probably just taken out of the freezer as the middle layer of mango passion mousse was rock hard. It tasted all right but the texture of the cake was just rock solid.
I had a set dinner meal with 4 pieces chicken wings a steak with fries and sago dessert (u may choose other options). Foods generally good portions not too small but I found a small piece of foreign material (not sure what it is looks like a wire piece) in the side salad with the steak. Unfortunately I put it in my mouth but did not swallow it but felt disgusted since not sure if it was clean and where did it come from. Kitchen can be more careful of their hygiene standard.
Good food, great value. just that the customer service need improvement, my reservation was at 7. reached slightly earlier and there was an event that ends at 7. said i can wait to sit inside as outdoor seating looks abit messy, the waiter and manager insist no. sounds understaff. luckily the food makes up for the service. will be back again, ambience at night time is better.
Nice quiet location at Rochester Park. Was a little disappointed that I could not order the grills with the Entertainer app but I didn't check earlier, so its my own fault. Waiters were very friendly and polite but a bit passive on our orders as we sat outdoors but there weren't many customers around. Overall still not bad, but could be better.
I would have given them full marks if the serving was quicker as understand only 1 chef was working on v day. Otherwise the food quality was really good! Really tasty dishes and I enjoyed my dinner with my family on Valentine’s Day! Will return to dine again soon!
The location is near to MRT which took about 10-15 min to reach the restaurant. Ambiance is quite relaxing and the staff are friendly except the pricing is higher than I expected. Overall the meal does not worth the price it charged. Taste of food a bit salty which not suitable for old folk.
