Prive means "private" in French, and this restaurant is indeed private. The drive along a 2 lane road is impressive with the flowers lining both side of the road leading to the bridge that connects to Keppel Island.
Other than the marina club, nothing is ready yet but its very peaceful and the sea breeze makes this a great place for a lazy breakfast or Sunday lunch.
We went there on a Sunday afternoon, (it was the 4th day of the restaurant opening), the restaurant itself is in an enclosed room (there is no view). Service wise, they still need a bit of time to get up to speed but I think they're doing alright for such a new restaurant.
Their set menu (consists of start, main and desser) is really great value @ $38++ because its a selection of the dishes from the a-la-carte menu. The portion is exactly the same as when you order from the a-la-carte, where the main cost around $30 and above.
Feedback from the group, in general everyone was happy with their starter, main and especially the desserts, which is rare given that there's normally some dishes that doesn't go down well, but its not the case here.
Would definitely go back there again while its still "unknown and uncrowded", because for the quality of the food going at the set price, it calls for many repeated visit before they change the price!
Now if they only offer Alfresco dining, its a pity that we can't enjoy the natural sea breeze.
