Great food, ambience and service!

We tried two ala cartes, namely, the grilled lamb leg and wagyu beef. The wagyu beef dish was absolutely delicious - perfectly grilled. So was the mash potato (and its gravy) that came with the beef - Just tasty enough but not overpowering. The grilled lamb leg was good too but it was the accompanying spinach & goat's cheese salad that was surprisingly delicious - not sure what dressing was on it but i'm not usually a greens fan and I couldn't stop eating this salad! 

One thing though - the beef and lamb tasted much better when it first arrived than later on when it got cold - so eat them while they're hot!

A bunch of attentive and pleasant folks too :)

Bacon & Gruyere "The Cheesy" starter

Great food, Bad coffee

-- What really ruins a restaurant experience for me -- Had the opportunity to dine at Bar-Roque Grill this afternoon, and I thought I'd share about my deal-breaker for restaurants. Here are some of the items we had for lunch: Bacon & Gruyere "The Cheesy" starter
Roasted Mushroom Soup, Crouton & Olive Oil 
Roasted Prawns & Squid, Provencal Vegetables, Artichokes & Basil Pesto 
Banana & Nutella Tarte Flambée w/Salted Caramel Ice Cream The food was good, but seeing as I am not a food blogger, I shall not attempt to describe the food. However my conversation with a friend in our lunch party today about coffee as we left the restaurant is something worth mentioning. I lamented to my friend that the latte (if you could even call it that) I had after lunch was bad - really really bad. I could have been drinking a glass of milk and I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. And we both went on to marvel at how restaurants with food menus as good as Bar-Roque didn't find it at all important to invest in a good coffee machine and to hire a good barista. After all, most of us habitually have coffee after our meals, and that is the one thing that leaves the last impression before we walk out of the restaurant! Many restaurateurs seem to overlook this point, and it is disappointing! Later, I mentioned this to another friend over WhatsApp, and she agrees that a good restaurant should definitely look into not ruining their own food with the bad coffee they serve! Like many others, I often have coffee with my desserts when I dine out, or as an end to my meal, and it is just sad to have a stellar dining experience brought down several notches by bad coffee. Perhaps my coffee taste buds are spoilt by the good baristas at who serve me my daily cuppa joe, but I do think restaurants really should look into the entire coffee experience. Doesn't the trend of rapidly sprouting cafes in Singapore tell us something important about how we love our coffee? Sincerely hoping that the Bar-Roque will improve on this!

Good food, great service, and it won't make you bar-oke

My girlfriend and I went to Bar-Roque last night, based on a review in I-S Magazine.  We were not disappointed.  The restaurant is located at Amara Hotel.  It is relatively small with an open kitchen and a modern/hipster design.  The service was great - accomodating and friendly - I guess it's the NZ influence.  I should add that the waiters are knowledgable of the menu and able to provide recommendations, which is a refreshing change from many restaurants nowadays.  The food was good - we had the vegetarian tarte flambe, the grilled rack of lamb, and the hanger wagyu beef, with a side of wild mushroom ravioli.  (Special mention has to be made for the ravioli - delicious).  Unfortunately, we were too full to have dessert, but we're looking forward to trying the apple pie next time.  With a carafe of red wine, the price came to $190 - well worth it for a great meal.  Highly recommended.
The vegetarian, $14 (small)

A very awesome experience

Reservation is highly recommended as Bar-Roque is really popular. A testimonial to the good food they dish out.

Seating wise, one can opt to sit indoors or outdoors. We went with indoors, and were fortunate to be seated at the main dining area where we could see the chefs at work. Oh yes, Bar-Roque has an open-concept kitchen. They must have really good ventilation as we left the restaurant smelling as fresh as we first stepped in!

And from the menu, we ordered:-

1) Red snapper ceviche, $24 – This was one of the specials for the day, which we immediately ordered once the staff said this will be served raw. Almost carpaccio style. Fresh, raw fish slices cured in calamansi sesame and spiced with chili powder, this was so good.

2) The vegetarian, $14 (small) – There are 5 flavours for the tarte flambee. Going along with the staff’s recommendation, we ordered ‘the vegetarian’, which had mushroom, onion and gruyere (cheese) topped on a very thin, crispy bread dough. A must try!

3) Pan seared foie gras, $28 – Served with granny smith apple, duck jus and brioche.

4) Free range yellow chicken, $24 (half) – I just had to order this. The sight of the chickens being roasted in the oven (from where I was seated) was so inviting. We decided to go with half chicken as we ordered a fair number of dishes. And this was so good! The skin was crispy while the meat was really tender.

Due to the (silly) 3000 characters limit, continue to read my review on other dishes here: PART2 8) Peach tart, $14 – This was also one of the specials.

I definitely recommend Bar-Roque Grill. I am in awe that they paid attention even to the smallest details. For example, ceramic cups are used for warm water so that patrons can hold the cups easily.

Service wise, the staff are really friendly. Which includes the chef too! Chef Stephane shouted me a “Happy birthday” (again) from his kitchen just as we were able to step out of the restaurant. Ha! Our glasses of water and wine were always topped up promptly and we were always able to get the staff’s attention easily.

In fact, the energy at the restaurant is really high. My girl friend and I really enjoyed our time at Bar-Roque Grill. So much so that my girl friend said she’s going to bring her partner. And I will be back too to try the other items on their menu. Besides ordering a-la carte, one can also order their tasting menu.

Bar-Roque Grill definitely has a winning formula for greater success with the delicious food served and great service rendered.
