Tonight all four of us are having the dinner set which costs $48++ per set. With the entertainer mobile application, one is also entitled to 1-for-1 dinner set. It is a great deal for us, as it means that we will be paying half the price of the original price. The set dinner consists of a starter, a main and a dessert.
We start the meal with bread, served with butter, olive oil and assorted nuts. Both are refillable. I like that the bread is serving pipping hot and the texture is soft and pillowy. We can't help asking for a second serving. We are also served lemon flavoured iced water which is refillable regularly.
For the starters, there is 3 choices available.
Wild Mushroom Soup, Shaved Truffle ($14.50 A-la carte)
The soup is rich and creamy, and great with the truffle oil on top. There is a sizeable piece of shaved truffle in the centre.
Caprese Salad, Buffalo Mozzarella, Pickled Onion, Zucchini, Pesto ($22 A-la carte)
The plating is very nice. The cheese is soft and not too strong in taste and balance quite well with the pesto sauce.
Pool Grill Caesar Salad ($19 A-la carte)
Romaine lettuce, parmesan, anchovy dressing, croutons
We do not get to see the salad being made in front of us as reported in other blogs. The salad is presented in a simple way, but tastes refreshing and crisp.
For the mains, there is also 3 choices available.
Homemade Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli, Fresh Tomato, Basil Sauce (V) ($26 A-la carte)
The ravioli looks a bit dry when served. Inside it is filled with rich and creamy filling. The taste is not too strong in the cheese taste.
Norwegian Salmon, Heirloom Tomato sauce Vierge ($32 A-la carte)
The salmon is cooked just nice, juicy and meaty, while the skin is light and crispy.
Roasted Baby Chicken Breast and Confit Leg, Potato Puree, Shimeji Mushrooms ($32 A-la carte)
Its serving is the biggest among the 3 mains and one can barely finish it. The chicken is quite tender and flavourful.
Lastly for the desserts, there is 3 choices available.
Banoffee, Toffee, Banana ($14 A-la carte)
This is the recommended dessert from the staff. It is quite a well balanced dessert without feeling too sweet or creamy. Like the popping effect of the chocolate balls in the mouth.
Chocolate Raspberry Trifle ($14 A-la carte)
It looks like strawberry flavoured jello-o, topped with whipped cream. Not too sweet and quite nice.
Vanilla Creme Brulee, Fresh Berries ($16 A-la carte)
This is the least favourite out of the 3 desserts as most of us feel that it is a bit too sweet. I feel the sponge cake which the fruits sit on, is lacking of texture.
Overall the food is great and well valued for money. I am surprised that the place is not crowded. Through out the whole meal, there is only 3 other tables occupied besides us. So it is easy to get the attention of the staffs. The staffs are friendly and make good recommendation. The place is quiet and cooling. Great for one to enjoy a meal smoothly.
