Known as "VAVA BISTRO" now - vanderful place

The destination of choice for dinner tonight was Vava Bistro, located in the hilltops at MacRitchie Reservoir. It's no secret that the Beau and I like dining close to nature, and this venue was perfect, in a nutshell. Vava Bistro provides the best combination - tranquility of nature, evoking a romantic ambience brought about by the peacefulness of the trees and and the calmness of the reservoir. Great food and excellent service are bonuses that enhanced the dining experience herein. The Beau and I shared a starter of Asian Chicken Salad (SGD$10.80) - Meslun green with chicken, Mandarin oranges, cherry tomatoes, wanton crisps and Japanese cucumber served with Asian vinaigrette. The chicken had a slightly smokey / charred flavor to it, and tender juiciness was the flesh itself. Eaten with the tasty sour-ish hints of the crisp greens and vinaigrette, this was definitely a palate opener for us! My main course of Crab. Bily On An Island (SGD$18.80) was served first - soft shell crab coated with homemade spice flour, fried till golden brown, served with chilli crab sauce, mashed potato and green salad. I wanted this item the moment I browsed the menu online before we got there, and did not regret ordering it at all. Crispy on the outside and succulent on the inside, the natural luscious flavor of the soft shell crab was further made scrumptious with the spicy sauce smeared around the side of the plate. The mashed potato was a little hard, but made for a good neutralization of the savoury crab. The Beau had a Confit De Canard (SGD$22.80) - crispy duck leg with garden vegetable, mashed potato and tangy honey mustard sauce. As claimed, the skin crumbled deliciously in the mouths, but the charred flavor lingered dreamily. The flesh was rather tender and easy on the teeth, and we enjoyed this all-time favorite immensely.

Let’s not monkey around; Lavaedge at MacRitchie is not your typical café-in-the-park offering, and its full-out buffet brunch should be an indication: the selection is decent dory fillet with mango salsa, baked cream leek New Zealand mussels, tom yum bee hoon, laksa, chicken rice and Irish beef stew, plus a satay station. Don’t judge a glass-walled wooden structure by its, uh, structure.

I've never been so upset to the point I will write a negative review. 

The manager at Lavaedge, Elvis, was rude and terribly sarcastic when I tried making a reservation (to no avail) over the phone. 

Very very poor and unprofessional customer service and phone etiquette. Extremely disappointing.
