Wine Connection Tapas Bar & Bistro is a popular hub for groups wanting to share a casual dinner, late night drinks and events. With 350 seats both indoor and al fresco, truly this is a perfect place for a great bond and great drinks ahead.
Wine Connection located at 11 Unity Street #01-05/06 Robertson Walk sells wine at wholesale prices. It is a quiet little wine outlet where you can unwind with your girlfriend and just talk. It is not noisy or smoky . My pick of the day would be a french wine, Le Grand, a pinot noir at $32/- ,which has a delicate and subtle taste , certainly a mix like soft fruit with deeper undertones.
Among the many dishes I had ordered for my birthday, I had ordered carbonara (a fail-proof dish for my kids). But when the dish came, the pasta was half-cooked and I had sent it back to the kitchen, asking not to bring me a fresh dish since it had already left a poor taste in our mouth.
The rest of the dishes was ok, but not as good as I remember it to be.
Surprisingly, when the bill came, the carbonara was still being charged. Have to say that in this day and age when dining out is competitive, the staff made no effort to ease my unpleasant experience in this restaurant. Very disappointed.
Doubt will return.
I was glad that buddy *Gareth suggested The Wine Connection Tapas Bar when we were due for a chillout c** catching up session.
We shared some light bites between us, starting from the Cheese and Ham Platter. There were crispy grained toasts, 2 cheeses and 3 types of ham on the platter, with some vegetables and pickles. I am pretty sure one of the cheese was brie, though I could not be too sure about the other one. Overall, it was still an enjoyable platter of nibbles to go along with our wines.
Next, Lamb Kofta, which held a totally tasty taste of lamb and spices, well-grilled with hints of smokiness to the aroma; the minced lamb was tender and juicy, not hard at all. It was utterly delicious.
Drinks-wise, I started with a glass of Rosé Wine from Provence, France and then switched to a glass of Bordeaux during the chilling out session, enjoying the mild sweetness of my first drink and then the slightly heavier-bodied Bordeaux's smokier charm. *Gareth started with Champagne followed by a glass of white wine thereafter. Overall, I really enjoyed the ambience, food and wine at The Wine Connection, and would be back for more. It boosts of a quiet atmosphere for catching up. We spent SGD$68.00 in all in total.
