The Coastal Settlement = charming little respite

Food/Drink 4 | Value 4 | Ambience 4 | Service 3

Finally got to meet *Sharona again, this time we go to The Coastal Settlement as agreed. This cosy, pretty little cafe is located at 200 Netheravon Road, Singapore 508529 and the number to dial is 6475 0200.   As promised, The Coastal Settlement offers a village homely environment filled with haylcon of the nature outdoors and a peek of the sea not far off. Wacky furniture are strewn above and around hte restaurant / cafe  The comfortable setting in this spacious compound brings one away from the hectic-ness of citylife, into a world where one could totally relax and curl up on their seats to enjoy good food and, uh, hard-to-get service (only efficient when clearing plates).   We shared the 12 Hours Coastal Wings and Drumlets - half a dozen of crisp-skinned delicacies with succulent flesh and slight tinge of spiciness. They practically crumbled and melted in the mouth like molasses, and the chilli dip goes well with the chicken.   Next, we actually wanted the Truffle Fries but were informed that they were running out of shoestring fries, so we had settled for the Portobello Fries they recommended. This was an interesting item and the first time we tried it - large pieces of portobello mushrooms fried till crispy on the outsisde and a lovely golden-brown shade. The inside is soft and respledant of the strong flavor of the dark mushrooms.   For more detailed information and photos, please feel free to visit: http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/03/brunch-at-coastal-settlement.html

okay but shocking service

Food was decent if a bit expensive. Service was okay with friendly staff but the kitchen was shockingly inefficient. It took a full hour and ten minutes from the time we ordered for the food to come. This was despite numerous reminders to the service staff to hasten the process. Ultimately I would only recommend this place for those who are looking for distinctly average, yet expensive, food and are pretentious enough to find enjoyment in the "ambience" while they wait an eternity for the food the arrive.

Without a car, I would probably NEVER EVER travel all the way to changi for this. It was seriously super ulu! But that is precisely the charm of Coastal Settlement, old-school, laidback, with a relaxing country-vibe. And the car ride along the length of the changi airbase and along the beach was absolutely picturesque! It was so beautiful, the expanse of space with the long beach, and planes rumbling along the runway and taking off all around you.

We were expecting breakfast/brunch food when we came to this restaurant, but realized that it actually has a lot of other dishes that are more for lunch/dinner. Anyway, it still made a great meal.

I’ve heard raving reviews about their Portobello fries ($15) and they didn’t disappoint! Wonderfully crumbed in a light batter, the mushrooms were deliciously fragrant and juicy. They came with a truffle mayonnaise dip that further enhanced the flavour of the mushrooms.

The coastal wings & drumlets ($14) that came drizzled with a sweet and sour sauce were nothing to shout about though. They were simply crispy fried chicken wings with sauce, and I felt they could probably have provided more sauce.

The rosti sausage ($16) was lovingly hand-cut, and was fried to a lightly crisp and buttery texture. I believe this is one rosti that you can actually eat on its own and it would still be tasty!! The sausage that came with it was generously portioned and complemented the rosti nicely.

The cheese burger had to be one of the most MEGA-SIZED portioned burgers I’ve ever eaten! It was well worth the $26 it cost. Gosh. I ate only half the burger, and I was so super duper full. We wanted to order dessert initially, but I was totally stuffed, all the way to dinner. A 180g wagyu beef patty, with medium doneness, it was pretty tender, with an interestingly crunchy texture, just slightly. It was topped with melted smoked cheddar cheese, sliced mushrooms, bacon strips and sandwiched between a really dense bun. I would have preferred a fluffier bun I guess, this was really way too carbo-heavy for me. I loved the mesclun salad and fries that came with it though! Thick-cut fries, and every piece was evenly salted just right. Even if they weren’t all crispy, they tasted good anyway.

Finally, the Good Old fish & chips ($26) were pretty good as well! The white cod fish was fresh, and the batter was quite light. Loved the fries, which was the same as my burger’s.

And the marshmallow chocolate ($6) was really interesting! I loved how the fluffy marshmallows added sweetness to the chocolate, I don’t think it needed any extra sugar!

Overall a very quaint, hidden-find that was worth the travel :)

Over-rated and over-priced

Sure, it's set in tranquil and lush environs. It must have taken quite a bit of work to get all that retro stuff into and up in the restaurant. But the food must matter too. It is after all a restaurant.

I ordered a nasi lemak. For $16+, you would expect it to be really worth that. But the rice had nary a hint of coconut. The prawns, as were the chicken drumlets, were only so-so. That is pretty much how wasted my $16+ was - on average fare that I am reminded, could be better spent at Changi Village Hawker Centre's nasi lemak stalls. It was so ordinary for such a price and therefore so disappointing.

The truffle fries were interesting. The condiment of truffle oil and tomato bits was well done and gave the fries a lift. Nothing much to shout about here. They were just fries, best enjoyed while they are still piping hot. $15+ for this was nonetheless too high for dish whose best bit is a saucer of condiment.

Too often, many restaurants get too fixated on conjuring their best dishes and neglect to do the simple things properly. I got a black coffee to see if Coastal Settlement is one of those. It is. The coffee was overly strong. The aftertaste was acrid. I suspect that the beans were not entirely lousy ones but that the machine was not optimised for a decent cup of coffee.

Lousy Food, expendive but nice ambience

Ambience was great.  Service was show.  The beef ribs was an absolute waste of money at $38. Small serving,  3/4 of the beef was fat.  Veg was salty. Truffle fries was unique but also salty. The service was rather slow and its probably due to the large area that they need to cover.
