OK, not going to lie...the food was good, but the reason I give this a very rare 5 stars is because of the service. There was this wonderful waiter called Jorge from Mexico who really went out of his way to make the night special. He was too intrusive, but was so attentive and also observant. He even presented us... More

It's a very appealing place to... More

It was our first time and it was a truly fine dining experience. Service with a personal touch from Igor - great recommendations, thank you. We had the handmade spaghetti with tomato sauce (forgot the fancy Italian name) and tagliatelle with lemon and thyme sauce. Divine freshness. Do try the mascaporne cheesecake - lovely end to the dinner. Well done... More

Description
'Porcini' - named after the infamous Italian mushroom 'boletus edulis' which many Italian chefs pride themselves as being the best mushroom in the world it is evident this restaurant is the same league. The Italian chefs are world class and their passion and love for the food is clearly visible. The presentation of the dishes are imaginative, risky and daring and for this they should get the praise they deserve. The restaurant is exclusive, with the impeccably placed utensils on the table to the well-designed romantic lighting. It's a great place for partners to go as the overall ambience is romantic and loving. It's also ideal for friends and family to celebrate a special evening as we are confident that after one dines here, they shall remember it always.
