Delicious affordable food! Thumbs up!!!

I came to this restaurant while they were testing out their festive menu and since it was offered to me i decide to try it out. It was very delicious and since that first try i have been hooked on their food.

I had a mac and cheese infused with truffles, this was superb, the flavours really went well together, and it was presented very well.

We also tried their lobster rolls and crustacean bowl. They are amazing!!! and really good value for money!

The place has a rather nice ambiance; down to earth and homie, its rather unique considering how many new restaurants just seem to get run-of-the-mill designs.

two thumbs up, for super delicious affordable food!

Pleasant dining experience, but the establishment may need to work on the service

My friend and I went for dinner on a weekday, and the place was pretty packed. We shared a dinner set, consisting of the traditional lobster roll and apple pie. I like the fact that a bottle of water was served immediately as we sat down, without having to ask for it. However, the staff were not very attentive to customers. While they did keep a lookout for patrons who may require assistance, their field of vision mostly covered only a part of the restaurant (I had observed 3 staff before pinning this comment). Apart from that, food is set at a reasonable price, and there's nothing much that I would fuss over.

The following week, I decided to bring my fiancee here for our birthday celebration. I had the squid ink scallop risotto while my fiancee had the traditional lobster roll, topped with a sea salt caramel cake. The staff were so kind and provided a complimentary slice of cake for us with a lit candle. That came as a surprise for the both of us. We were fans of their truffle fries, sadly their portion became smaller and they're now served on a flat dish instead of the usual bowl.

If you're looking for desserts to compliment your mains, this place may disappoint as they do not have a wide array of cakes.

Ultimately, a nice and cozy place to visit! Would definitely return again.
Pumpkin Soup

Strange Name but Good Food

Girlfriends and I were enjoying a nice get-together over good food. We started with a pumpkin soup which was velvety and flavourful! Loved it! We then ordered 4 different pastas (Mushroom Risotto, Sun-dried Tomato Pasta , Carbonara and Seafood Linguine) and they all tasted pretty good actually! Ladies MUST have desserts so we had 3 to share. We ordered Red Velvet Deluxe, Bailey's Extraordinary and Double Decker Mud Cake. I appreciated that their desserts are not the run-of-the-mill type and good tasting too! With starter, soup, main, dessert and tea, the bill came up to about $30 per pax which I thought is very decent. Definitely a revisit when in the area.
Porcini Ravioli

Great Food but Pricey

Place is great. The good is delicious and the serving just right. Even though there were only 3 pieces of ravioli, it was filling and anymore would have made it jelat. I recommend the truffle fries, black and white linguine with crabmeat and the porcini ravioli. Chocolate mousse wasn't that good. Service is quick, water is refilled even when the restaurant is busy and the location is ace.

Poor service, good food.

The food was good but the service was really poor. We had to literally flap our arms and shout to get any service. And it's always annoying when you both order two courses and they just dump dishes down with no regard for timings. Call me old fashioned but if you both order a starter, they should both arrive together. And waiters should just come and check on you at given intervals to see if you're ok. Basic stuff! But the food was very nice. Pumpkin soup was thick and tangy, then the risotto was dense and flavourful but not too heavy. It's just the little things like service that make such a big difference.
