Out of all the dishes we tried, the dishes ranged from OK - YUM. This place is by no means outstanding, but the general food quality is good. 1. Burrata and tomato 10/10 YUMWhen you have a dish that simple, it's all down to the ingredients. The burrata cheese was so creamy/milky and so soft. The portion of cheese was quite big which I think is a good deal.2. Beef carpaccio 8/10 YUMA classic dish that you can't go wrong with! This dish came first actually. It's definitely good appetizer, its NOT
1. Burrata and tomato 10/10 YUM
When you have a dish that simple, it's all down to the ingredients. The burrata cheese was so creamy/milky and so soft. The portion of cheese was quite big which I think is a good deal.
2. Beef carpaccio 8/10 YUM
A classic dish that you can't go wrong with! This dish came first actually. It's definitely good appetizer, its NOT filling at all, and makes you really hungry after. A plate of thin soft slices of beef, salty cheese, salad (no arugula sadly), dressed with a refreshing pesto sauce, all in all a good and flavourful bite.
3. Onion soup = 7/10 OK
Another classic. The soup has a sweet caramelised onion flavour so its quite tasty. My only issue is that there isn't much cheese, the only cheese being on the bread, and that wasn't a lot. So the soup is a bit one dimensional.
4. Pate =7/10 OK
I am not qualified to judge it since I don't eat much pate. If I were to describe the taste, it is quite smooth, creamy, meatloaf tasting. Not my favourite, on the bland side, but its probably that style of dish.
5. Beef tartare 10/10?!? or 7/10?!?!?
Two different reviews here...
Review 1: Beef quality isn't great, which impacts my eating experience because its a lot of chewing...Taste wise not my favourite seasoning, I don't think it quite has the classic tartare taste, I think its missing something but its pretty darn close.
Review 2: Love the taste of the tartare, its better than other restaurants. Beef is a bit tougher than other restaurants, but I would order it again!
The fries however were bland, but who is to complain when they give u a salt and pepper shaker. I would recommend to add salt and season the fries before eating.
6. Tuna and potato hash
It's a healthy and simple dish. Seared slices of tuna on a bed of hashbrowns with some tomato relish of sorts. I don't think the potato hash goes with the tuna, it just makes the dish seem heavy. I would prefer a salad, or something more acidic to brighten the dish up.
7. Seabass in beure blanc sauce
Creamy fish in a cream sauce. It's good, the big plus being the fish isn't fishy at all and its very soft. The sauce tastes like a fancy cream sauce. The barley is hard, but its a different texture I guess?!
That being said this is a sort of dish you should not pack home, as the butter will seperate from the cream upon reheating.
8. Creme brûlée
An above average creme brûlée. In less friendly terms, I have had better creme brûlée.
The table next to us did complain about the service, and said the waiter kept pouring their cup every 5 minutes.
However I had a good experience for the following reasons.
1. Waiter added water frequently (but not excessively)
2. Waiter helped chase our food
3. We ordered free coffee when we ordered desert, and at the end of our meal found out the coffee was FREE.
4. We were given 2 LARGE black umbrellas to use since it was raining.
