Good place for business lunch as the place is spacious and quiet. Service is good, variety for dishes are not too bad. Recommend the lobster pasta and porcini risotto.

My colleagues and I had an unpleasant visit to this restaurant for lunch. Initially, we were served by a great waiter who recommended us their duck as the main dish. We did order the duck dish, lobster linguine and another dish which was stated as "Cod fish fillet". As this was part of the set meal, we also ordered soup of the day i.e. pumpkin soup and ordered the dessert of the day which was mentioned to us as "Chocolate cake".
Before our meals arrived, we were served warm and soft breadrolls but only that was the best part of the meal - the bread rolls. When the soup was served, it was very watery pumpkin soup. When the mains arrived, the duck meat was understood to be "fried till its crispy and very tasty - highly recommended" by the waiter. But, it was not the case at all. The duck was very tough, hard and dry. Great disappointment and wrong description of the duck dish. Next came the so-called cod fish fillet-not. It was NOT cod fish at all. Rather it's the usual frozen white fish fillet with the usual strong soda taste to it. It was unbelievable that they could actually put it down as cod fish when it's just white fish fillet - similar to the ones sold by Astons i.e. grilled fish. Lastly, when we had dessert, the chocolate cake was again not cake at all! It was a scoop of ice cream with very very teeny bits of cake found and the whole time, it was just ice cream and nothing else apart from a dollop of chocolate on top. The food was a great disappointment. When we proceeded for payment, we had shown the waiter the chope voucher purchased form chope website. i.e. For SGD 90, we would purchase a SGD 100 voucher. Luckily we purchased 2 vouchers as the total bill came up to SGD 227+. The disappointing meal costed that much including 3 glasses of wine at SGD 18 each. For just the meal, its simply unreasonably overpriced and not worth the money and service. Further explanation on the service below - The manager did not know what the vouchers were at all and asked how he could validate the voucher and what kind of promotion it was. We were surprised with that question!. He went on to ask what his restaurant code was in order to validate the question but we would not know the restaurant code issued by chope. All we knew was, we purchased the vouchers and have already paid using credit card for SGD 180. He did not know how and turned frustrated about how we wasted his time having to figure it out and not informing him in advance and that he's busy.

We went for dinner on a Thursday night to celebrate my daughter's birthday.
It was a quiet, cosy dinner. The service was very good and staff very attentive. Chef was excellent in preparing a special dessert for my daughter's special day!

Food was so-so, but service was excellent. Staffs were attentive, and friendly, however they missed out my special request written in chope during reservation.
