I came here with friends one Saturday night. The three main course dishes were Ameijoas ‘a Portugalia (clams in white wine, onion, garlic and capsicum). At about $36 the dish wasn’t cheap but it was really tasty and well portioned. The second dish was Bacalhau ‘a Bras (salted codfish scrambled with egg, potatoes, and onion topped with olives). Again, the $28 isn’t cheap, but it was really beautiful to eat and nicely portioned. The third and final dish was Frango de Churrasco (Charcoal Chicken marinated and barbecued, over the open charcoal fire with Piri-Piri. Yum, yum. We sipped our way through a bottle of white we brought along which attracted a small charge. All the food was really delicious although at about $100 it was fairly pricey (although my generous friend shouted the meal). Still, eating in Sydney is expensive and restaurants have large overheads. The service was helpful without being overbearing. I would like to come here again.

Came in for a la carte which was admittedly not the best idea at a place better known for its buffet. But I've been here for that as well. But the far card is impotent here as it's always some special buffet which gives a lesser discount.

The crab buffet was unremarkable, there are much better places to go.

Ordered steak here which was poorly seasoned, fish and chips were bland too. 

The best was the service by a young waiter Andrew. Really took the initiative and made it quite enjoyable in the end. Thank you.

Located at Swissotel Merchant Court, Ellenborough Market Cafe offers spread varieties of fresh japanese sashimi, local foods and also peranakan cuisine. It is a walking distance from Clark Quay MRT Station where you do not need to worry about the accessibility.
The interior cafe has a vintage and peranakan design that attracts my attention. The colonial design makes the whole cafe looks authentic feel. The marble table top with the wooden chairs makes the whole interior design completely fascinating.
The cafe also has the option dinning indoor or outdoor area.There are few food sections which includes the sashimi, cold seafoods, salads, peranakan desserts, cooked foods and also ‘live’ cooking sections. Japanese sashimi are sliced personally by the chef upon request to ensure the freshness of the sashimi. Hot cooked sections are available especially Singapore Chilli Crab with mantou. It is almost gone whenever i head to the section for my intake.
Cold seafoods sections are in demand too especially comes to buffet. The snowcrabs are well-received immediately when the chef re-stocked them. “Live” cooking sections are available where you can have the hot fried carrot cake cooked on the spot. Peranakan desserts are something that you shouldn’t miss out. I love the durian pengat that taste super awesome! I was addicted the moment I tried it. It is smooth and totally can taste the pure durian taste without getting your hands dirty.There are nyonya kuehs displayed at the sections as well. Do give it a try on the rare nyonya kuehs that you seldom get to have it elsewhere. Overall the dinning experience was pleasant. The staffs are quite attentive to customers’ needs. Plates are cleared once we are done and keep out table as spacious as possible. The staffs are polite and friendly to customers i would say. If I would to miss the foods here, it will be the crabs and durian pengat.

Had reservated evening buffet 2 weeks ago requested for INDOOR SEATS.Infact,i postponed from 7/12/13 to 14/12/13 due to unavailable indoor seats.However,upon arrival on 14/12/13 at 1830hrs,we were told we requested for outdoor seats which was ridiculous!!!!We were told all seats are reserved although most of the indoors seats are empty most of the times.Most of the foods are horrible especially the steamed lobster and crab,very hard and not tasty at all.We were treated like 2nd class citizen outdoor without any tissue paper or wet wipes provided.Need to PAY for soft drink if required
