My friend and I went to Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro for lunch on a weekday earlier this week - and we would not come back: briefly, the food was tasteless and overpriced with poor service.
To start with, the location and ambience of this place are excellent. Nestled in the beautiful yacht berth with a noteworthy view of the sea, this place definately offers you the out-of-Singapore feeling whilst dining there. And unfortunately that is the only good thing we can say about this place.
Let's begin with the food. The beer battered fish with shoestring "truffle" friest was simply a glorified food court-standard fish and chips. The batter of the fish was tasteless, and the fries was soggy - put simply, you'll be better off with mcdonald fries. Is this a few bad apple? No. The snapper pie was equally tasteless. It arrived cold. Yes, it was hot on the outside, but the soup inside was cold. Maybe the microwave was having a bad day, but at least we now know they served microwaved food. Upon our feedback, the food was remicrowaved - well done, they know now how long does it take to thaw the frozen food.
The service does not lose out with the quality of the food too. In fact, maybe the service was worse. We could even hear one of the waiter (or manager, but well it does not matter) uttering vulgarity a few times to each other. Well, perhaps they were trying to show off their vocabulary and diction to the small kids there.
And for the tasteless food-court quality food and some vulgarities, you will be charged 35++ per person (food only, without beverage).
