Post-Invited Tasting Revisit

For the full review, please see http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.com

We returned for a revisit, unfortunately, right dab smack in the middle of Restaurant Week, so the restaurant was swarming with diners. Even so, the food was still excellent. Service, however, suffered due to the full-house, because the kitchen was consequently (but somewhat understandably so) overwhelmed. There was an inordinate gap between the courses that left our stomachs growling and us filling up on bread. Notwithstanding the long lag-times between courses, the wait staff were still very much engaging, genuine, witty and friendly.

One great thing about this out-of-the-way locale is the complimentary valet parking. Even if you don't drive, the staff here are very happy to call for a cab for you so you don't have to lift a finger after dinner.

We ordered the same stuff sampled at the invited tasting, and all were very well-received. Of particlar note were the Salmon Carparccio, Beef Short Ribs and Tiramisu. All are must-trys and should not be missed.

Very romantic experience

This is a place to be if you need to sweep your date off her feet. The best place for romantic ambiance and fine dining. However, the food and service falls short of expectation (maybe because the ambiance already sets you in the mood to expect the best). Overall, this place guarantees a memorable dining experience.
Sardinian fregola with seafood

new menu with Sardinian specialties

Alkaff Mansion's new executive chef Simone Depalmas has reworked the Tudor-style mansion restaurant's menu to feature Italian dishes with a strong Sardinian influence. Expect the freshest of seafood imported from Sardinia and served with flair, like the whole salt-baked sea bass, flambéed with cognac before being served with a cherry tomato basil salad ($48-$64, 600-800g). There's more, fresh octopus carpaccio ($24), a Sardinian seafood pasta with fregola (a Sardinian couscous-like pasta imported from a mom-and-pop shop in Italy, $28) and a intense porcini mushroom risotto made with risotto Superfino Acquerello ($28). The beautiful space can be enjoyed at lunch, weekend brunch, afternoon tea and dinner.

Best for romantic (first) date

Alkaff Mansion is reputed as one of the most romantic restaurants in Singapore. i celebrated my birthday once, and also attended a friend’s wedding at Alkaff Mansion. I was quite mesmerised by the whole ambience of Alkaff Mansion. No traffic can be spotted here as the Mansion is totally tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

 The main dining area is at level one of the Mansion. Each dining table is very well-spaced from each other to ensure couple get to enjoy their private lovely dovely moments. The lavish interior design and the dimly lited dining area sets the perfect mood for a romantic dinner.

Despite the higher-than-average price tag, it’s truly a different dining experience that is reasonable to pay for the extra bucks. There is no pressure to leave right after dining. Grab a patio couch near the outdoor fountain area that’s dimly lited with a tea light and enjoy the rest of the night under the moonlight.

This place will always be at the back of my head when my friends ask for recommendation for a classy romantic dinner venue.
