We got:
- 2 lattes
- Strawberry Cheesecake Croissant

This croissant was so delicious. The strawberries were fresh, the cheese wasn’t cloying, and the overall flavour wasn’t too sweet. Can’t remember the exact bill but it was probably about $20+ in total. Will definitely come back to try out the other items!

We ordered:
- Fried calamari (fresh and delicious)
- Ragu with rigatoni (full portion; very rich and filling. Recommend to add on bread to soak up the sauce!)
- Vongole with squid ink tagliatelle (tasting portion, pictured; the broth was quite light but the clams were tasty! They also added chilli powder and bonito flakes to the dish so it’s not a traditional vongole.)
- Cacio e pepe (tasting portion; size may be enough for one person as it’s quite rich too. Delish.)

We went with the staff’s recommendations on which pastas to match the sauces, and were pretty satisfied. The flavours are mostly quite strong and depending on personal preferences, can border on being a bit too salty. Pasta texture was great and had a good bite. Would love to visit again to try other items!

Including 2 drinks, the bill was $75.60. They currently do not charge gst or service fee. Didn’t use burpple beyond.

Visited again because there are too many things I wanted to try!

The stand out dish for me was the panna cotta - really yummy, not too sweet, and just the right mix of flavours. The fish (pictured) was also not bad, and I personally prefer the fish to the beef tongue sandwich. Also tried the grilled tiger prawns, which tasted distinctly Asian because of the black beans, and the prawns were really sweet and fresh. Didn’t enjoy the aubergine agnolotti at all cos there was some wok hei-ish flavour that I found really weird with pasta and the dish came with snow peas which I am not a fan of.

Will drop by again at a later date cos there are other items husband wants to try. Their menu has slight changes all the time though (like even on this visit which is just a week after the first time, there were some changes already). We went at an earlier timing this round and service was definitely less rushed.

For four dishes, a half portion of sourdough, 2 wines, and still water, the bill was just over $200 including service fees and tax.

Made a last minute reservation the night before and was so glad we went there! The food was great and we enjoyed everything we ordered. The service was friendly but a little rushed cos they were really quick to clear our table and hand us the bill (maybe they needed to prepare for dinner service). Would love to visit again and try other items!

We ordered:
- Cedar Jelly and Foie Gras Toast (my fave)
- Chips with Sour Cream and Caviar (honourable mention)
- Endives (pictured, and husband’s fave)
- Beef Tongue Sandwich
Including sparkling water, a cocktail and a glass of rosé, the total bill was about $180+ with tax and service included.

I was really looking forward to dining here because there were so many good reviews, but I left disappointed. The food was average and the service was perfunctory, although the food was served very quickly. The ambience was also lacking. Maybe cos we came on a weekend and the weekday vibes are better?

Items worth a try:
- Tori Karaage
- Gyu Ponzu
- Tsukune skewer
- Short ribs skewer
- Bacon with Scallops

We ordered some other things as well, and our bill added up to about $96 (with no alcohol).

The menu is really limited. There’s no pork or beef, and the only item that has chicken, is the burger which is served with side salad and keropok. All other savoury items feature seafood, eggs, or vege. There are no appetisers for sharing and no fries. The flavours are pretty light too. So, definitely not a location for lavish and hearty brunches.

We ordered a French Toast and Prawn Aglio Olio, as well as an iced Latte. Food was alright and I enjoyed my Iced Latte.

I wouldn’t say I was disappointed because maybe I’m just not the right target audience. We also picked this location without checking out the menus beforehand cos we wanted to be spontaneous, and this place seemed to have great reviews (4.9 out of 5 on Google).

That said, the decor is nice and comfy, and it’s a decent choice if you just wanna chill. Just make sure you check out the menu first and adjust expectations accordingly.

Ordered:
- Okra Octopus (tapas)
- Bajan Fish Tacos (tapas) - in photo
- Oxtail & Eggplant (tapas)
- L.H. Jerk Chicken (main)
- Ms Ginny (cocktail)
- Pinky Promise (cocktail)
- Samaroli Demerara Rum (a shot)
Total cost: $197

The food was really good, especially the Octopus and Oxtail. The cocktails were great and we really enjoyed Ms Ginny. The service was mostly friendly except for the lady who sat us (she also sounded really defensive when we were asking about their rum selection). Otherwise, the team was very nice and helpful, especially the bartender.

They do have a huge selection of rum (500+ types) so rum lovers will have a great time here.

The vibe is casual, although the price tag isn’t. But we’ll be back cos the food and drinks are great. Looking forward to trying more tapas, rum and cocktails!

This place is always packed whenever we pass by and had a chance to try it out today. We ordered the Wurst Rosti and a Salmon Soba. Both were good but the rosti was better!

Nice ambience and great service! Ordered six tapas for dinner with husband and it was quite filling. The flavours were quite simple and a little too subtle, e.g. the octopus was served with a piquillo sauce but I could barely taste it, the bikini sandwich was not bad but we couldn’t taste the jamon, the prawns (pictured) were just one-note.

Love the laid back ambience though and would visit again to try their paella and other mains. Our server Izzue was really friendly too.

Total cost for six tapas and 2 bottled beers came up to $120+ (including usage of a 1-for-1 tapas deal).

Tapas ordered:
Grilled octopus
Prawns
Ham croquette
Eggplant toast
Bikini sandwich
Meatballs

The food is tasty but prices are a little high. We took up the 1-for-1 kaidan set burpple deal and ordered the uni kaidan and a basic kaidan. Also ordered a garlic fried rice with wagyu, and a heavenly roll. Including two hot teas, the total bill came up to $120+.

The garlic rice with wagyu was really tasty, but the portion (especially the beef) is a little small. The seafood used for the kaidan sets was fresh and the heavenly roll was delicious.

Not sure if it’s because the business is still ironing out teething issues, but service standards were inconsistent. Perhaps also cos it was a busy dinner service. We asked for refills for our hot tea, but the refill was already cool when they served it to us. We also had to clarify the burpple deal details with three different persons as everyone gave conflicting info.

Might visit again cos the food is really not bad in terms of taste and flavour, but I’m not sure it’s really worth the price. This place is also probably not for aficionados of super authentic Japanese cuisine.
