This quaint place is at Pan Pacific Hotel, previously Hotel Negara, or otherwise known as 10@Claymore. The inside is extremely beautiful, with a full-fledged bar and ample working area for the staff. There's an open kitchen as well. Lots of high tables that are abit rickety, but adds to the charm. The ambiance is just cozy. On the other side, well, it's Orchard Tower. So just request for an inside seat to be immersed in your beautiful environment. When we arrived in the late afternoon, there was an engagement party going on, hence we were abit unsure if the whole place has been booked. On seeing our confused faces lingering at the entrance, the staff came out and welcomed us in warmly. We were handed the menus and told that there was a happy hour, $10 for beers, and there were happy hour prices for wines as well. So together with a Pilsner, a type of pale lager, we ordered: Caprese
Sliced Mozzarella Cheese, Cherry Tomato, Chopped Basil, Oregano and Extra Virgin Olive Oil Grilled Barramundi
With Potato, Olives, Capers and Parsley Porchetta
Slow Cooked Pork Belly With Balsamic Glaze and Soft Polenta Shortly after we ordered, we were given some bread each. We mixed our own olive oil and balsamic vinegar, and started munching... into cold bread. Not sure if it was meant to be cold, but we thought they would have been better warm. After we finished, we were offered a second round of bread. The Caprese to start off, was a bit bland, hence we gave it a layer of olive oil and a dash of salt, which did the trick. The Cheese and Tomatoes were like any other Caprese salad. We thought we should have ordered the Squid one... The Grilled Barramundi is tasty. The flesh was quite tender to the fork, and the skin grilled quite crispy. Interestingly, the potatoes, olives, capers and parsley work together to give a very unique taste. They added lots of of colors and flavours to the dish, adding presentation points. Well, we were actually more interested in the Porchetta, as we don't come across this dish very often. It's basically slow-cooked Pork Belly. In this dish, the meat comes with Balsamic glaze and polenta. The polenta, which is basically cornmeal boiled into a porridge is like baby feed, giving the otherwise tough Pork Belly another dimension. Although the Pork Belly is slightly over done, the effort put in is evident. The fats is luscious, and the portion quite enough to fill a big boy. However, do be wary of the serving time...

Terrible service. 30 min wait for food despite no one here. 15 min wait for an ice coffee. Waiter a little impolite. Nice ambience though. That's it.

Really horrible

I came here during Restaurant Week on 2 Nov 2014. The reviews have been good but my experience today was just horrible. 

I had the lentil soup to start with. It was just a very ordinary vegetable soup with tons of lentils. The main course I chose was steak with tomato sauce and polenta. There was no choice of how you wanted the meat done. All portions were served as 'medium'. The beef was no less than ordinary and the polenta tasted like it was made from some instant polenta mix. The portion was tiny. There were only a few small pieces of very well-done beef. Then we had panna cotta for dessert and this just tasted like milk powder and sugar.

The service was bad. We had to ask for bread before they served it to us. With the other tables, they served bread very generously. We ordered drinks which took a long time to arrive, and never arrived even after one reminder. So, we gave up reminding the waiters about the drinks that didn't come. The drinks weren't even in the bill which means they never bothered to check on our order at all. 

We paid $25 each for this meal. I honestly wouldn't fork out more than $15 for this. Do cheaper prices during Restaurant Week mean that you should serve your customers cheap food? I would think that any decent restaurant would uphold their quality especially during Restaurant Week when publicity is higher, so as to retain more customers.

I'm never going back to Sopra. Food and service were very disappointing. I'm only glad that I paid 'Restaurant Week' price for this terrible experience.
