Friend who is a member of the One 15 club treated me to lunch at this lovely place. Firstly, getting there is a real hassle, you have to pay the entrance fee for car and driver, then pay for the parking at the yacht club. The overall beauty of the club, the marina, the pool, the lounge is stunning. However, what struck me was their choice of beautiful waitresses at the Latitude, perhaps it is the lighting or the mood, everyone of them looked beautiful. That hightened the enjoyment of the food.
Food: Ordered a cod fish fish & chips, I asked the waitress to confirm that it is really cod and not the frozen dory that everyone else uses. It came in two strips of cod (Chilean I assume) in a thick batter. Fish was excellent and I discarded the rather think batter. Fries were mediocre but they did serve a side of rocket salad - favourite man. Friend ordered their fried hokkien mee and it cam nicely packaged in a "opay" dried banana stem wrapping that kept the noodles moist. Did not try the noodles - not so thick skinned. We ended off with a trio of creme brulee, one a pandan, the other a cocoa and the last a pistachio combination. All three were excellent. Also ordered a lemon cake but is was mediocre. Ended off with tea and coffee. Overall good food but not beautiful.
Ambience: When we arrived they sat us next to the glass wall but it was hot, we requested for an inside seat and that was more pleasant. Simple but contemporary decor overall, I liked the uniform the staff wore - bermudas with a smart shirt - designer clothes, I was told. Took a walk around the club and it looked smaller than I thought it would be. Marina is smaller than Royal Singapore Y C but the layout was more pleasant.
Value: Meal come up to about $50 which is quite high for a member's club.
Service: Excellent, all with the pretty waitresses and smiles.
