Inspired by the colonial heritage of Gillman Barracks, Masons provides a stylish and elegant dining experience. Masons offers high quality yet affordable European cuisine with a strong French influence and a Singaporean touch.
I was invited out to dinner on Saturday evening; my friend received some vouchers in the mail and decided to take advantage of them, best thing he's done all year!!... Upon arriving at Mason's we were greeted and seated; really nice decor and the table was cleary set by well trained staff. The dinner menu is simple and refined with a small but excellent choice. We had one starter of Brie with pistachios & one starter of Goats cheese. For the mains we had the daily special of Pork Cheeks and the other main was Oven baked tenerloin with Yorkshire Puddings!....the food was served on hot plates!!....the portions were just right, for desert we had the Creme Brulee. The serving staff and the restaurant manager were excellent hosts and a return vist is already being planned. If you want a good night out with friends for dinner and a bottle of wine with a no hassle experience then i recommend Mason's at Gillman. Thanks to Beatrice and the other members of the team!...
Pretty terrible, pub grub gone wrong. totally not worth the hike to Alexandra. the place also charges $2++ for two water! The audacity of the owners. Service crew were great folk but received little to no training.
My visit to Masons started out promising - very pleasant surroundings not crowded at all and looked like a perfect place for a Sunday brunch gathering with friends. I should have taken the lack of a full house as a sign trouble was ahead.
By far this was one of the worst dining experiences I’ve had in Singapore. I would like to say it was because of the poor quality of the food, but I can’t even honestly do that as my order never arrived. I’ll leave the review of the food quality to those in my group who were able to receive their meal orders in a reasonable time.
The service was horrendous - first off the orders arrived piecemeal. Out of 5 child sets, 2 arrived together whilst the other 2 arrived 15 minutes apart after that, which might be reasonable if they were different types of food - but they were all the same pasta sets - ?????? and the 5th set was forgotten - we had to remind them 3x that one child was without their lunch.
I waited patiently for my order while the rest of my group received theirs, thinking it would eventually arrive after reminding them 3x (as with the child set). I just had it when they said sorry another 10 minutes when the rest of my group had already had enough time to work through their lunches. So much for a nice Sunday brunch.
They say never say never, but I will never visit this restaurant again given its poor service - not worth the effort.
