On the food, their savories were all lovely. No queer foie gras but there were the memorable Blue Lobster Tartlet with apple rémoulade with texture tasting like jelly and crispy crust. The Curry Chicken Choux and Cavier Blini were also memorable.

The sweets looked gorgeous on a pink marble slab. We liked their Macarons the most simply because the crust was as light and thin as the original macaron maker’s and the violet mascarpone filling was delightfully refreshing. Even the chocolate tart was sensational with popping candy that exploded in your mouth. Everything had interesting textures.

The scones on the other hand were disappointing. Even though they hand whipped the cream in front of you with a choice of citrus cream with Cointreau or chocolate with rum which tasted heavenly, the plain and hazelnut scones tasted too milky like milk powder. It seemed that this hotel liked to experiment with their scone recipe—I’ve had scones at their Garden Lounge twice and didn’t quite like the herb ones.

There was also a take-home Easter egg at the end of the meal for a little surprise.

Service wasn’t entirely smooth with initial seating as guests that arrived earlier were not seated chronologically. We were forced to listen to the server’s verbose introduction of food when there was a menu and we really preferred to have the drink before the food even though we were provided with a glass of water. They did however offer to refill our tea without asking.

All in all, food was still impressive and they did a great job on crust and pastries, but their scones and hospitality need to be improved for afternoon tea guests.
