Great food , cocktail and wine selection. Conviniently located next to Raffles Hotel. Nice after 9am..good for small parties. Love the roast pork, and the cauliflower dish.
Busy place, relaxed atmosphere and music. Food OK, if a little disappointing; highly over priced for what it is. Mini burgers/ sliders are recommended but steep at $20. Would definitely go again but for drinks only.
Quiet during lunch. Has good value lunch set though: 3 course for 18++ ... nothing spectacular but for desserts I would really recommend the tess tiramisu!
