This is a review of their old menu. They have recently changed their menu and I look forward to return to this place to try more.

we ordered the Mushroom Salad .I do not recall seeing any French beans though, but the pickled onions were unique in its shape and is extremely sour. Very good as a starter to whet a person's appetite.

This pan fried barramundi is a main course on its regular menu. Compared to other restaurants, the number of filets on this plate is a lot more ( as they are being stacked up, not just existing as a single sole piece). The dressing of tomato & kalamata olive salsa was tangy, crunchy & savoury. A nice side to have along the fish as the filet is only lightly seasoned. The mashed potatoes were fine and smooth in texture but they were not mixed with spices. However, this is one of the best mash i've eaten

We visited this place on a weekday, having seen a few of this outlets around. They're more like a cafe, which we are kind of apprehensive about the food. Nonetheless, we decided to give it a go. On a row of shop houses in Serangoon Gardens, right beside Chomp Chomp, this cafe is located on the second floor, with a staircase and a quirky walls leading to it. The menu looked pretty interesting with lots of mod-sin dishes.

Virgin Classic Mojito

Soup of the Day- Cauliflower Soup

Salmon Risotto ($24)

Braised Pork Ragout Pappadrella ($18)

Handmade pappardelle, pork collar, carrots, dried chinese mushrooms & tomatoes

We were first served our Soup of the Day, which was Cauliflower Soup. A generous, big bowl, enough to warm up two hungry tummies. The Virgin Classic Mojito is a fail-proof with the distinctive mint leaves. This set (drink and soup of the day) costs $6 to top-up, if you order a main course.

The Braised Pork Ragout Pappadrella ($18) had heat gushing out...

Ended on a terrible note

We were a party of 4, but were only given two menus when we were seated. Service was relatively efficient and food didn't take too long. We were all satisfied with our meal - but then the drama began. 

I presented my credit card after checking the bill, and the bill folder was returned to me for signing within minutes - without my credit card. When asked, the service staff who processed and presented my bill started looking for it, and all four of us looked around as well in case it had slipped onto the floor. Soon it was apparent that my card had gone missing, so the assistant manager came over and apologised, saying they would find it ASAP. Waited longer and still no card - she asked for my contact details and said they would notify me once found, and would also send me a voucher for my next visit, to make up for the inconvenience. I decided to wait longer anyway in case, and meanwhile called the bank to suspend the card. Finally after half an hour & 7 people (incl. us) searching thoroughly, still no sign of it anywhere. During the whole time, the staff who presented my bill quickly went away and never said a word again just after trying to search for a couple of minutes. Another manager got involved & said they would investigate & check the CCTV cameras, so we left.  

Just when I'd gone downstairs from the restaurant, I suddenly got a call saying my card was found. The manager came down to return it and apologised again, saying it had been found on the ground - though we had combed the area quite thoroughly. The entire incident still remains puzzling to us. Despite what she had said, there was no follow up email from the assistant manager who said repeatedly that they wanted to "make it up" to me - after over half an hour of 4 people's time being wasted, and my having to go through the trouble of deactivating and reactivating my card. 

Apparently they believe that just because my card had been found, all is well and no further service recovery is required - says a lot about the standard of service of this establishment.
