This Swiss dining concept is styled around a traditional European marketplace, where diners order and collect their meals from the stalls they prefer. The restaurant is quirkily decorated with cows and other emblems of European country living, and the food runs the gamut from pastas to roasted pork knuckles to freshly made Swiss crepes.

I have no recollection of the food standard in the ex-Marche outlets except they serve good rosti. So imagine our surprise when we saw Paella is served here and it is quite good.
Paella ($15.90) single serving [rate 4 out of 5]
My HB lamented that plate of Paella is the fastest he ever ordered. He was right. We usually have to wait at least 30 mins for any order of Paella, and the serving is usually for more than two diners. Without looking at other items, HB went ahead to order the Paella. Three chickens drumsticks with 4 prawns and other vegetables served with rice. It was good, rice is very moist and the meat very fresh. Loved it.
Cooked Vegetables ($8.90 for medium size)[rate 3 out of 5]
You can pile as much vegetables onto your plate. There were sauteed mushrooms, kailan (?), grilled zuchini, eggplant, cauliflower, tomatoes and herbed potatoes.
Chicken Mushroom Pizza ($7.00) [rate 2.5 out of 5]
Not many variety of pizza here. We asked the cook to make the dough as thin as possible. Don't remember how it taste
Mushroom Soup ($4.90 small) [rate 3 out of 5]
Definitely not canned soup. Quite savoury.
Grilled Chicken Breast ($6.50) [rate 3 out 5]
HB feels he's not getting enough meat, so he ordered this. Very tender when I took a bite.
There was no Q when we were there at 2pm - past lunch time. We were seated very promptly. The restaurant setup is small but feels cozy, I like how they use fresh vegetables to "decorate" the cooking area.
And did I mention that the Paella is pretty good :P hahahaha
Had a casual meeting with old colleague and suggested to patronise here. Now that I think back, I’ve been here twice and both times were to meet “long time no see friends”. Perhaps it’s due to the atmosphere that makes it a good spot for a casual gathering. Apparently, you can order whatever you want and they will just charge it to a temporary card, and after that you just pay for your card. Thus, ordered a bit of everything. The food tasted great! But personally I find the drinks a bit not worth the buck, unless you are going for the alcoholic drinks. But still recommended for the ambience and food though.
i always think that vivocity is a very nice place for us to visit especially after a long day at sentosa and you just have a big group of people. though it gets a bit crowded, you can go and get a table and do your own a la carte buffet where you can go around to choose your favourite food and the rosti has always been my favourite since when i was in girl guides in secondary school. this meal always leaves us with fond memories
