Specialising in mouthwatering lobsters cooked just the way you like them, Pince & Pints is leading the way in quality American-style seafood dining in Singapore. The sophomore space in Katong is following on from the success in Duxton and has local seafood aficionados absolutely buzzing. This East Coast Road restaurant boasts unpretentious New York-style decor and a relaxed atmosphere, with the focus being very much centered on the fresh and succulent lobsters cooked to perfection that have been sourced from sustainable, wild fisheries. Be sure to keep an eye out for the famous lobster burger filled with a deep-fried patty, slaw and three sauces in a fluffy potato bun, or the lobster noodles cooked with ginger, homemade sambal chilli and egg noodles. Reservations are essential.
Food was great. Went on a Sunday evening and perhaps we were early so there was no one else in the restaurant. Other than that, the lobsters were fresh and well done.
Great service and food! The staff even gave my boyfriend a birthday surprise as I added it in the remarks during my booking. I will definitely go back again!
Food was great! Service was good! Highly recommended. Will go again for special occasion
A more spacious setting compared to the Duxton Road branch, probably coz there are seats upstairs too. Food standard didnt fall behind the main branch. Overall good!
We just had dinner here and would say that the overall experience was great. It wasn’t too busy on a Saturday. We ordered calamari, grilled lobster and lobster mac and cheese. The calamari rings were coated with tasty batter which was still crispy even after a while. The grilled lobster would be a great choice for anyone as you would be able to appreciate the taste of the lobster fully. We wouldn’t recommend ordering the mac and cheese as it was bland and wasn’t very tasty. You would be better off ordering something else instead.
Definitely preferred the steam lobster as the sweetness of the lobster was more obvious. Grilled was nice as well but it was more dry, it does have the smokey flavour for those who like it. As for the sauces, I preferred the Spicy Seafood sauce although it was a little bit on the salty side. For those who loves the buttery flavoury, can go for the Butter Sauce. Either way, the lobster did not require any sauce to taste good. Definitely worth it especially if you have the 1-for-1 deal from Burpple Beyond.
2nd time here! Lobster fresh as always, tried the non ya chili and wasabi lobster roll this time. Omg the wasabi was just too overpowering and my nose was numb after every bite. The nonya chilli also too strong and takes away the taste of the fresh lobster. The cantonese style lobster dish is awesome tho. I think their whole lobster dishes are better than their rolls. Drinks are mediocre unfortunately. With Burpple 1 for 1 deal it's super worth it. Will be back again!
Yesterday we went to your branch at Katong to celebrate my friend's birthday. The food was delicious we had no issue with that. But, we would like to provide some feedback on the service. Not sure is it because of the layout of the restaurant (being a double storey building), service staff was not easily available, we had to wait a while for the food even though the place wasn't packed. We had also asked the staff to help refrigerate the birthday cake before dinner. After dinner there seem to be an issue as the cake was not promptly served and cake didn't seem like it was refrigerated. It was a letdown. Staff could have been more helpful. All in all it was a mediocre experience. With the price we are paying, we expected better.
While the concept is great, there seemed to be something lacking at Pince & Pints. We went early and were the only ones in the restaurant at the time, and we did not receive any proactive service at all. The restaurant seemed a bit "tired" and the bathroom was not very hygienic at all. The food was good though, but not great, for the price and there was very limited choice of wine. It was OK - and, as I say, a great concept, but just seems to need a bit of love, and care, and professionalism.....
We had the grilled lobster and the lobster roll, both were delicious. My daughter liked the butter sauce and asked for seconds, which were provided free of charge. Service was excellent, the waitress was very friendly and helpful. We also did not have to wait long for our food. The restaurant was a little too small and we felt rather squashed and had to squeeze our way into our seats.
