Great food and service! One of th best eggs Benedict in the town and do look out for their specials of the day which keeps changing every weekend. Perfect ambience.
Very good ambience, and food is great. Richard is an excellent host, very attentive and provided that personal touch from the owner. Deffo coming back!
Excellent food and service! The owner goes out of his way to make people feel welcome. The menu is outstanding and vibe of the place makes for an overall enjoyable experience.
Love this place. Good choices, excellent food (presentwtion and taste wise), great value for money. Would definitely be back. Selfishly, I hope people who dont know if this place, never discover it.
The meal was disappointing. There is obviously going to be some discrepancy between what is advertised and then what is delivered to your plate, but in this instance the difference between the two was startling. My grilled goats cheese starter was shockingly bad. I was served a plate of what was essentially biscuits with a smeared with a very thin layer of goats cheese. The champagne sorbet consisted of a 'thimble' of sorbet that barely left a taste in the mouth and should certainly not being listed as a course. The 'turkey dinner with all the trimmings' was a let down. The duck fat roast potatoes looked like they had been scrapped off the bottom of the roasting tin, large fluffy potatoes they were not. The vegetables were fine except everything was cold and the portions… 'size is everything' except at the Rabbit, Carrot Gun restaurant, if you are on a diet then this the place to go. Big they are not. The worst part of the meal was the quality of the turkey meat. We were given 'bits' not slices of of dark meat, some of it belonging to the giblets (or so it appeared). We had to ask for extra breast meat which arrived on a small side plate again in a pile of 'bits', again cold. The desserts and cheese platter were fine, if small portioned. The service was adequate, although we were served water in an odd assort of different glasses. It's always a risk going out for any meal to somewhere new, particularly for Christmas Day lunch. But this restaurant had been recommended to us by a number of people and with that and the general perception of what the 'Christmas Feast' promised failed to live upto even the most realistic expectations.
Looking for a new place for lunch today, we decided to try this cafe situated at the corner, opposite Katong Plaza. We quite remember its cute name and quirky décor the last time we were in the area, so we just went straight in without thinking much. We spent an hour in there, and noticed a large number of its visitors were expats or tourists. Perhaps it is due to the fact that it also provides accommodation- really pretty, boutique level decorated kinds (http://www.rabbit-carrot-gun.com/sleep-2/) as the photos show. I wouldn't mind staying a night here ;) The whole space is no very big, small and cosy. No air-con, but it is surprisingly breezy for a 1 pm afternoon. Prices are mostly below $20. The portion of their Signature Brunch Dish, Gamekeeper's Shooting Breakfast ($19.50) is the largest among all. More of a lunch portion than for brunch. The flavours are pretty average. Nothing really interesting. Comes with Sausage, Bacon, Mushrooms, Baked Beans, Tomatoes, Choice of Eggs, Sourdough Toast. I am not sure if it deserves the 'Signature' title... On the menu, it says Mushrooms & Spinach On Toast ($15) comes with a pair of soft poached eggs served on sourdough toast, but the egg is overcooked so much the egg's pretty much stuck in the middle of hard-boiled and poached, that we'd rather much prefer it to be hard-boiled if it is not going to be poached. But the major turn-off is the vinegar. There is way too much of it, that the entire dish was extremely sourish. It could have been a very simple and pleasant dish... The Gourmet Beef Burger ($19) had grandest entrance.... (For the complete review and photos, click here: http://mediumrareandothers.blogspot.com/2015/03/rabbit-carrot-gun-katong.html)
I expected a lot more from this place, having seen positive reviews before going. My companion and i ordered the Beef Wellington, their signature dish ($59++ for 2 persons), and it was actually very good. But the good points end there. The attitude of the servers, particularly the one man who took our order, was terrible. When ordering, as soon as i informed him we would be using a 1-for-1 coupon, his face turned black with contempt. He kept this face on throughout our stay there. He also did not know or forgot that the coupon was n.a. with the Beef Wellington, so in the end i was forced to accept a lesser discount. The decor and atmosphere was nothing notable, unlike what i had expected from descriptions of the place - English country home-styled furniture and fittings? More like a random assortment of lackluster art pieces and generic wooden furniture. Finally, besides the Beef Wellington there was about one item in each section of the menu (Starters, Mains, Salads & Quiches, and Desserts) that was interesting and seemed authentically English, which reviews tend to highlight. What they failed to mention is that all the other items are disappointingly uninspired, reflecting the kinds of vague 'Western' food that Singaporeans are all too familiar with, with generic descriptions and ingredients. Not to mention completely undeserving of the kind of prices they were asking.
Enjoyed a lovely Sunday roast lunch with my family at the Rabbit Carrot Gun today. Manager received us warmly, even though we arrived well after our reservation time. Table service was attentive, quick and very helpful. Tasty food was well-presented and generously portioned. Lively atmosphere. Will visit again!
I had a business dinner at RCG, recently-- and this restaurant and staff wont disappoint you. The staff was friendly and the decor was great, good selection of drinks and the food was cooked perfect and tasted great. I would highly recommend Rabbit Carrot Gun.
Great place to dine in! Service staff were polite, responsive, really friendly, and the boss was really cheerful as well :) It's recommended to go on weekdays as you'll most likely have the place to yourself haha, but come early if you want to grab a drink at the affiliated bar next door as it's pretty popular with the local expats. Very well-decorated, with rustic furniture and decor that made the ambience quite interesting. Food was tasty but brunch portions were on the small side - the platters however were flavourful and well-curated, and paired well with cocktails/wines. Overall a fantastic experience!
The food was very well prepared and presented. The poached eggs were as we asked for (not too runny), and the combination of hash brown and mushroom fricasse was superb. The vanilla chantilly cream complemented the brioche French toast. The bistro was however severely let down by the service staff, one of whom was indifferent at best, and the other who should have been more knowledgeable about the menu, and more professional in dealing with the patrons.
Went over for lunch! Make an appointment with Quandoo, quick and easy with instant confirmation! Good ambience and location! There is no air-conditioner so some people might find the place rather warm due to our blessed hot and humid weather! Food selection was okay. We ordered the tuna nicoise salad and eggs benedict with a side of fries! Although the food was quite good, the salad was really,really small for the price we paid! Could be the smallest portion of tuna nicoise I have ever had! Okay experience but they could definitely do better!
It was a pleasant first visit. It kinda fits our expectation of an English Inn the thing that was a positive surprise was the Morocco lamb stew. The food is definitely not the norm and not a knockoff imitation of Chinese food but authenticity best describes it. Worth to visit at least once. Do note there is limited space and it is better to have reservation before coming.
Rabbit Carrot Gun has consistently good food, great atmosphere and good beer. We typically go for brunch, but this time we tried the Sunday roast--it was excellent.
The food and atmosphere we're excellent. Even though the service was a little slow we we're kept informed and apologies were given. It didn't matter anyway as we were enjoying chatting and the background music was lovely. We had expected it to be busy in a public holiday anyway. Will definitely go back to try out more of the menu items that sound delicious.
Decent food, small portions which make the prices a little more on the expensive side. We had the Beef Wellington and Ribeye which were both rather average, nothing to shout about. Attentive service by a bubbly and courteous waitress (whose name I unfortunately have forgotten), wine cost $69 for the bottle but was rather short and tannic. Spent an average of $70 per pax with the bottle of Shiraz. Might visit again for the convenience.
Very nice place for quality food. Made my first visit after hearing positive reviews from a number of friends. Beef Wellington was a winner, as well as the steak, both cooked to perfection. Unfortunately, by the time of our (8pm) dinner reservation the majority of starters and desserts were finished... So the next visit we will go for lunch! Only downside as a young family is that there are no baby changing facilities.
Great way to have brunch and coffee with very hospitable hosts. The good selection of power juices also have you that kick u need to start your day. The French toast with mixed berries was a good sharing plate to end off a nice savoury brunch.
Absolutely fantastic evening. Bar staff are friendly and attentive, the manager is welcoming and a really nice, down to earth kinda guy. They serve my favorite beer, Asahi and the food was out of this world. I'm going to make this place my new local.
The food is still very delicous and worth the visit just for that. The service has also improved so much since we last went a few months back. Sadly our family visitors weren't too impressed with the slow service. But they were much more attentive-improving after their not so great reviews of late
Best western breakfast on the East Coast, great family venue and always great service. Four of us ate: we had Gamekeepers Breakfast, Beetroot & Quinoa salad, French Toast and a stack of Pancakes. My kids are fussy eaters but they always enjoy it there.
Amazing Sunday Roast lunch with friends. The owner always come out to greet us and we feel very welcome. Great place to hang out with friends after work for some pub time or bring your family for delicious meal on the weekends as well.
Food was nicely cooked, room is well decorated and waiting staff are friendly. However, overall quite expensive - particularly $12 for a bowl of fruit and a small amount of yoghurt - which took so long to arrive that those of us who ordered cooked food had finished eating already. Also, while fashionable to take orders by memory, the "hip" aura disappears when the waiter needs to come back to check his recollection. Finally, coffee forgotten but included in bill. Nice people, bit shambolic, bit expensive.
My family and I enjoyed the dining experience at the cafe. What was most impressive was their service crew, who attended to us promptly and were also able to recommend items on the menu for us. I would definitely visit the cafe again as we had a very pleasant dining experience.
Rabbit, Carrot, Gun has an excellent atmosphere and the food is great. Typically English cuisine, with an Asian twist at times. Good wine list and their adjacent pub serves Speights on tap. The owners are omnipresent, cheerful and friendly. Great weekend spot.
I went there with some friends for dinner. The service was good and the food was really tasty: a mix of traditional British pub food with some new ideas such as the avocado scotch egg. It was an enjoyable evening.
The food was really lovely here. The sausage on my plate was one of the best I've ever had in my life. The fries that came with the steak sandwich were of a generous portion and so good too!
Brilliant Sunday roast and wonderful staff. Definitely worth a visit but make sure you book to guarantee a space as its a very popular place on a Sunday and servings of the roast dinner are limited!
Really helpful staff and the food here was on point! The value you get from the food that you ordered does indeed match up to the price that it is sold at, would come back again!
Overall the place was nice and clean but rather small. The food was very good enjoyed it very much. Staff was not so attentive. Called for the bill a couple of times eventually we just went up to the cashier to make payment.
Very nice place. And the manager (who must be the owner) makes sure that eveything works out as it should. The kitchen knows how to cook which is eventually the most important. Definitely a jewel.
We went there just for the beef wellington! Overall it was good and tasted well. We also ordered a brunch platter and two cups of flat white. The place is cozy and almost full. It is a good place for weekend hangout.
Quality of food was superb. The Beef wellington and beef cheek were really good. Though the price of beef wellington (29.9 per portion, min 2 portion) is slightly on the pricey side.
Fantastic place...awsome service....foodie-type mouth-watering grub.... Quintessentially British....!! Go here from Brunch,Trunch,Drinks and Dinner.. Pub CONVENIENTLY located next to the restaurant....if fact...side-by-side...!! Richard (owner) and his team will look after you proper like!!
Service was extremely good and friendly!!! The food was served quickly and was very delicious. The atmosphere is cosy and not too cool inside but a bit noisy. But all in all a good start into the day!
A nice cosy cafe but it can get rather hot since the entire area is open. Food was decent but portions were small given the price. Service was slow as there was a lack of service staff although I can see that they were trying their best.
Fantastic food and ambience great too. Most importantly love the food. I had braised beef cheek and it was so tender that it melt in my mouth. We ordered molten lava cake too with excellent vanilla ice-cream.
The Sheppards pie, was cooked very well and in a classic British style, however I felt the portion was too small and the cost quite high. Vegetables overdone and in too much butter. Pie was great.
I really enjoyed the food there! Ordered the beef wellington and scotch eggs and they were very delicious! Went on a weekday afternoon and it was quiet and not crowded.
First time to the restaurant as it was recommended by friends. Like the ambience as it is very homely and the staff are very friendly. The food is good especially the truffle fries which is awesome.
Owner was rude and uptight, very shocking. When my friend arrived 10mins early (before reservation time), he hounded him in an impolite manner as to whether the rest would show up.. When the next friend arrived 10-15mins later, he hounded both of them again as to where the rest of us were and asked them to check that we would show up. When i arrived another 5 mins later, and another friend then arrived after me, he hounded all three of us as to whether or not we were sure our friends would show up. When we said FOR SURE, he scorned us and said are u really sure as it is already running past the reservation time. He mocked we are running on singaporean time, which is not what the restaurant is running on. he claimed his restaurant runs on GMT. this is not customer friendly at all and if he has issues with Singaporean time, maybe he should not be in Sg. lastly if he was running on GMT, then we were all technically early.
Food was excellent and service above and beyond - absolutely aiming to please. A quaint setting, relaxed dinner and a lovely experience. We really enjoyed the high quality meal coupled with the very relaxed atmosphere.
The service was great! They attended to us quickly and came over once in awhile to check if everything was okay. The toffee pudding is a must-try. Very lovely indeed! Definitely going back for more.
Environment abit too dark.. maybe can add some warm lightbulb?? food are dilicious and fresh!! Hope can have more choices on the main dishes.. Definitely will come back soon!!
Had the big breakfast. Scrambled eggs were good, bacon was great! Crumpets so-so. Portions were good for me but left my hungry friend craving for briyani down the street. Service didn't rush us but didn't (re)fill our empty water glass until we asked...
Good service, good food and a nice atmosphere. Staff were friendly and engaging with the guests and the boss Richard is friendly and made the reservation for the special Christmas dinner quite hassle free.
Food variety was very limited for the brunch menu. Quality was reasonable. The molten lava cake was superb, definitely a must try. Would be good if they include beef wellington in the menu, tho.
Excellent service and food was above ordinary. I didnt enjoy the scone, although it was hot and fresh it was overdone and hard. The manager/owner took it away and agreed it wasn't the best.
Love this place! We have had the Sunday roast and dishes from the brunch menu all of which have been delicious, always a friendly welcome and great service.
Great brunch!! Just the right portions too.. Not massive!! Good coffee and good atmosphere. Highly recommended especially for the expat in Singapore. Have to try Sunday roast next.
