This sharp and stylish restaurant serves contemporary Italian cuisine at an enviable location at Sentosa Golf Club overlooking the sea. Plenty of al fresco seating is available, or chill out in the cool modern interiors. A highlight of the award-winning menu is the wagyu beef cheek with sweet paprika, whipped polenta and black trombette mushrooms.

il Lido, the name inspired from Venice’s Lido Island, is located at the Sentosa Golf Club , with a paranomic view of the Singapore’s straits. iL Lido is the TOP 50 Restaurant in 2009 and I was full of anticipation and eagerness to try their food and of course, the magnificent view at the outdoor area.

I actually made a reservation indicating an indoor seating but I changed my mind when I saw the paranomic view… I requested to be seated by the view area. The view was simply fantastic but the only problem would be the mosquitoes and the heat…. was perspiring…

Without even looking at the menu itself, my mind is already set on the 3 course set lunch priced at $38++.

Crispy Garlic bread

I was served with a basket of crispy garlic bread crisp after placing my order. Oh goosh! how am I going to finish that huge bowl? Anyway, I tried a little and I felt that the garlic flavour was weak . It was crispy but still failed to impress me.

Prawn Salad

This was my choice of starter, The Prawn salad. It was served with 4 grilled jumbo prawns with balsamico served on a bed of lettuce.

The prawns were quite huge tasted fresh and cruchy. I enjoy every bite of it.

The bed of lettuce is simple- lettuce and shredded carrots and tossed in mustard seed dressing.

Snapper with rosemary and brocolli

The mains took a while to arrive. I was not informed of the cooking method and they even told me that the chef is replacing the brocolli to rocket leaves but they still serve the brocolli to me in the end.

The snapper fillet is breaded (in breadcrumbs with rosemary) and deep-fried and served with brocolli. I must admit that the fish is quite thick . I do not really prefer fish to be deep-fried as it would lose it’s natural flavour. However, despite the fish being deep-fried, the fish is still quite tender and juicy in the interior.

The saffron sauce added a light touch but the breadcrumb mixture is toooo… bland and almost tasteless. Perhaps a little salt could be added to spice it up.

Towards the end, I felt that the fish becomes a little dry and tough (perhaps it turned cold) and thus I left it unfinished.

Strawberry Mousse

The strawberry mousse is very light and not too sweet, served with raspberry puree and soursoup puree. The texture is very smooth.

Overall, I would agree that the view and ambience is fantastic. However, there are just few hits and misses about the food. Again, travelling to the Golf Club is not that convenient and thus a RETURN might be unlikely.

This Italian classic is tucked away at a cosy corner of Sentosa Golf Club. Leading the way there is this nice vintage wooden boardwalk. Then the most amazing view greets you.

I love this place, elegant dining. Excellent service too! I would recommend this place for couples celebrating special occasions :)

Their weekend lunch menu going at $58++ per person. I think its worth it. Feel so pampered and well fed at this place. A place for true Italian fine dining.

Porcini Mushroom Foam is not some creamy soup, as read from the name. Its foamy appearance comes with the slight mushroom taste that lingers in your mouth before the next course comes along. What I like about this is the tender taste which is not too strong, but just the action to tickle your taste bud and crave for the next dish.

 

Not in the set menu, complimentary Cheese Risotto Balls from the chef. It's still warm and the cheesy taste although does not flow from the bite of it, but if you are cheese-lover, this could really make you happy.

 

Cream of Asparagus with Truffle, which is not really my type of taste. I love asparagus, but the idea of mashing it into creamy soup does not goes well with me. But my companion likes it a lot, especially if you are a truffle lover.

 

Parma Ham with Artisan Burrata. I love the creation of burrata which shaped like an egg, but slicing it open ooze out not yolk, but a mixture of mozzarella cheese and cream. This Italian cheese is not those kind of thick and cheesy type like the "Cheese Fries" we have in KFC, and thus compliment well with the parma ham.

 

Pumpkin Tortelli with Truffle Bagna Cauda. Can't really make out the semi-transparent golden sheen, but the bottom lays something like greenish dumplings that are stuffed with boiled pumpkin. I am not a pumpkin lover and I do really hate pumpkin at some point of my life, but this is totally just suitable for me. Pumpkin is not too strong, though of course the sweetness of the pumpkin is still there.

 

Tagliolini with Crab, Amalfi Lemon and Tarragon. It look nice in picture and presentation, but I couldn't really stand the strong fishy taste that I seem to taste out of it. Well, at least my companion is likes it a lot.

 

Seabass with Caciucco and Herb Dumplings. In my opinion, a dish of fish is excellent when the meat itself is soft and silky-like, and able to absorb well of the sauce that it comes with.

 

Bone Marrow Crusted Angus Beef Tenderloin, Heirloom Carrots. I wasn't asked how well I would prefer, and it seems to be more like medium-rare. Although it has been a long time I had a medium-rare beef, its juicy meat with a dab of the pumpkin cream complement well.

 

Hazelnut Coulant with Spiced Chocolate Gelato. Molten cake that contained dark bitter chocolate which will flow out when sliced open. This dessert is not bad in general, but the bitter taste is a tad strong.

 

Roasted Strawberries with Vanilla & Yogurt Semifreddo. Among the two desserts in the weekend lunch menu, this is my favorite. This simple yet elegant presentation is not only pretty in looks, but also tasty in mouth. Sweetness of the strawberries and sourness of the semi-frozen ice cream cakes literate a well-balanced dessert to end the meal.
