Good Italian Cuisine By The River

Full Caffe B review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/03/caffe-b.html


Situated along the waterfront of Marina Bay Sands, Caffe B is a nouveau fine dining establishment that offers Italian cuisine with sprinklings of Japanese influence. Rounding off the experience of good food and friendly service is their extensive list of fine Italian wines, including several rare labels.

Ambience at Caffe B benefits from the view along the Singapore River. Mostly comprised of outdoor seating, Caffe B is chic and stylish, with muted tones befitting a fine dining establishment. However, the limited seating means you'll probably have to wait about 10 - 20 minutes for a table during peak periods.

Service at Caffe B is friendly, efficient and professional. Staff are knowledgable on menu items and ingredients, and food is served pretty quickly. I like that they also accomodate change requests. Noticed that staff are quite alert as well.

Food at Caffe B is primarily Italian, with several twists by combining Japanese ingredients and flavours. Menu items comprise mainly of pasta, pizza, and salads, with a small list of Italian desserts. Prices at Caffe B are on the higher side, because of its fine dining status, but each dish portions are generous, sufficient for 3 - 4 people.

The Calzone (SGD $20) is stuffed with black truffle paste, mozzarella cheese, a soft boiled egg, fresh button mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, and Italian Mortadella sausage. Tasty, and so beautiful when cut as the egg yolk just oozes out. Aroma is strong and fragrant, and taste is earthy, fresh, and meaty. I also liked that they covered the empty half of the plate with Mesclun Salad, drizzled with truffle and pesto sauce. My only complaint was that it is slightly overseasoned with salt, leaving me thirsty towards the end.

what a disappointment!

The worst Caesar salad I've had in as long as I can remember! I added the grilled chicken to the salad - which was dry and over cooked. One of our party received their meal at least a good 10 mins before the others. My Caesar salad finally arrived but we still waited around another 10 mins for the third meal to arrive! The waiter had completely forgot the third meal, saying 'that was all you had right' to which we has to tell him that the 3rd meal was still missing. Before our food arrived one of our party ordered a drink with the remaining two of us just asking for water. The water never came without asking for it again, half-way through our very sporadically delivered meal! I'll do my best to avoid this place at all costs in the future. Such lame service and absolutely mediocre food!

Caffe B - carving out the best dining experience!

After going through a few shortlisted locations, the Beau and I decided to stick with Caffe B for a celebration dinner. Having read some reviews about this Japanese-Italian fusion restaurant located at 2 Bayfront Avenue, #B1-15 / #01- 83 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore 018972, we dialled 6887 3311 for reservations.   Yes, the nouveau Italian dining restaurant Caffe B is located at my favorite Marina Bay Sands once again, this elegant-looking, quietly-sophisticated restaurant uses the romantic effect of soft lights and lavishly-dated decor to create an almost quixotically-lovely ambience.   Strangely, how many people actually thought that "Caffe B" was a casual-dining concept serving bistro-style food. When I talked to a few people prior to the meal, they had either not heard of it, or formed the above misconception. Well, dearies, let me assure you that it is nothing like that at all.   While waiting for the entrees to be served, the warm fluffy foccacia bread with olive dip were being served. The sweet bread was light and the olive dip was delicious, so they complimented each other very well.   Then my entree of Squid Ink Seafood Risotto was served - a tiny heap on a gigantic plate nicely dotted with colored spices. The seafood (prawns and scallops) was deliciously bouncy, as was the rice infused with the tasty iodine-saltish flavor of squid ink. The saffon sauce sweetened the dish. This Risotto dish was simply bursting with flavors all around, and every morsel, every grain was a dream.   For more detailed information and photos, do check out: http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/01/dinner-at-caffe-b-at-mbs.html

Groupon Deal

While exploring Marina Bay Sands, I walked past Caffe B, which looked really posh. I am not a big fan of Italian cuisine and the prices were quite high, so I gave it a miss. A few weeks later, there was a lunch deal on Groupon, haha, now I had the perfect excuse to try Caffe B!   Don’t be mislead by the word “Caffe”;  this establishment is a nouveau Italian fine dining restaurant. The owner is Japanese while the chef is Italian so you will notice some dishes marrying Italian and Japanese flavors. The swank exterior was impressive, so I was surprised by the change in décor inside the restaurant, which I would describe as rustic European.

Caffe B has a no children policy so if you are looking for a place to have quiet dinner date, this is an ideal choice. While making reservations, we were also informed that shorts and slipper were not allowed. Service was courteous and not over-the-top friendly. The Groupon lunch menu ($39.50 nett) consisted of a starter, a main from a choice of veal, Italian meat platter, venison or seafood, and a dessert accompanied by coffee or tea. The food was a hit and miss (I was sorely disappointed with the dessert). Portions were too small; we were still hungry after the meal. Upon seated, we were served fluffy Focaccia with Tapenade, a paste made with finely chopped olives and olive oil.

Mushroom soup with truffle, Extra virgin Olive oil and foie gras. I like the thick, creamy and smooth texture and intense flavor of this soup, but can’t seem to catch any foie gras flavor.

Hubby was very pleased with his Italian Delicacy Platter- Parma ham, Cured beef, and Italian salami with Rock Melon, served with Mozzarella, fresh Picacadilly Tomatoes, crunchy garden vegetables and homemade Focaccia. Well-plated, simply authentic Italian food. It was so good that Hubby wish he could have another platter.

Snapper with sea bass fillet, mussels, clams, prawns squid broiled in tomato broth, served with homemade garlic bruschetta bread. The star is undoubtedly, the spicy and slightly zingy tomato broth, which went very well with the fresh seafood.

Dessert was not in line with what I expected- it was simple and the serving was so small that it makes it hard for anyone to be excited. You have a choice from 3 flavors the Silician Sorbet: Coffee, Fresh Amalfi Lemon or Sicilian Almond
