Food's not the best but generally fair and value-for-money

Read the full review at http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.com

The food here is a mix of simple, uncluttered Italian fare and unfussy local favourites, in fairly large portions. The quality of the food is generally fair and value-for-money. So while the food here may not be the best, it definitely commiserates with the reasonably low prices.

We had:

1) Pepper Seared Tuna ($16) Firm pink fresh tuna encrusted with pepper and seared, with peppery rocket leaves accenting the dish and a drizzle of balsamic for flavour.

2) Chargrilled Vegetables ($12) with zucchini, mushrooms, peppers and tomatoes all grilled to a smoky perfection, and tossed with a smoky sweetish balsamic vinegar for some tang

3) Stewed Oxtail Pappardell ($19) was just alright, and could have done with a little more oxtail, but at the cost of only 19 bucks, there's little to complain. Oxtail was stewed real tender and robustly flavoured, and pasta was done al dente

4) Chicken Pesto Cream Penne ($14) with sauteed chicken and pinenuts in pesto sauce was ordinary, but fairly good and really cheap. I thought the addition of pinenuts was a nice touch

5) Prawn Linguine ($15) with pinenuts. This was done al dente, simple and uncomplicated

Nice place to chill with wine only

A nice place to hangout with your girls to chill with wine and desserts.Since it's called the Wine Company, they have a large variety of wine but the food was not up to our expectations. The main courses and appetisers are on the expensive side and certainly nothing impressive. The lobster bisque tasted a little too salty for my liking and the most-raved after chocolate molten lava cake is not comparable to the one I had at mount emily. Overall, it's still a nice cosy place to hangout and chill with wine.

good to chill

How can I not be seduced by the decor? It has four different but complimentary styles. First, there are wooden planter's chairs with short marble coffee tables, speaking of a colonial era. Along the same stretch of walkway, there are checkered-upholstered armchairs, a more "starbucks" feel, but the design of black-and-white checkers also invoke a bygone era. Notice the same short coffee tables are used to unify the different chairs. In the "garden" of this restaurant, a third design comes in. A more modern look, with rattan patio chairs and wooden tables but this design blends in because of the colors: the brown tables mirror the brown planter's chairs and the black patio chairs compliments the black and white checkers. All three outdoor designs have an easy casualness. And the last one, the interior, is very sexy. Dimly lit, the restaurant is full of dark wood and marble tabletops and heavy wooden chairs with the shape of the patio chairs. Very nicely decorated!

We ordered the all-day breakfast ($15) with an additional of sparkling wine(+$5) and wine-soaked poached pears ($11).

The all-day breakfast comes with a sausage, eggs (of your style), hashed brown, roasted tomato, bacon, and sauteed mushrooms. Everything was soaked in oil. And they all tasted worse than McDonald's. The bacon was so overly done it had all shriveled up. Very disappointing. Why is this even on the first page of the menu?

Wine-soaked poached pears: Love the movenpick ice cream. The pears themselves weren't bad, tasting like sour pears. But the dessert should have been chilled.

Overall, good ambience, good service, bad food. Don't eat here. Can chill out here.
