A nice place with a cozy ambience. Came here with a friend for dinner and ordered their steak for sharing. Meat was well seasoned and of good texture. Their service staff was also responsive. Overall a good experience!

This is a really lovely and cosy bistro along Joo Chiat Road (: I ordered the fish tacos, seafood bouillabaisse, and miso salmon for sharing and it was such a satisfying dinner! The fish tacos were definitely the highlight for me β€” super crispy yet succulent beer-battered fish, tangy salsa, rounded off with a rich chipotle sauce. Special mention for the bouillabaisse as well, which had a hearty deep broth and fresh seafood. Can’t wait to go back and try their other dishes!

A place with great vibes and service!

I had the Fish Tacos and the Bouillabaisse (a seafood broth with dory, prawns, clams, octopus and ciabatta). The beer-battered dory was nice and hot, giving a satisfying crunch to the exterior and perfectly cooked fish inside.

I was honestly pretty apprehensive about the Bouillabaisse as I've never had it before... and I was not a huge fan of seafood but wanted to try a soup dish. It ended up being a pleasant surprise! The broth was rich yet light, with great seafood ingredients. Although i had the soup by myself, I felt that would taste best when shared with everyone at the table, and slowly consumed throughout the meal.

Overall, a satisfying experience at the communal place. would come again!

Mentai Salmon cooked to perfection with crispy skin. Mash, bouillabaisse and greens all complemented well and I really enjoyed all the food here ☺️ Looking forward to return!

Really enjoyed the Octopus Chorizo! The combination of the octopus, chorizo and chili sauce was so appetizing. Not forgetting the tasty belgium mash πŸ˜‹

Octopus chorizo and fish tacos were both 10/10. The sauce on the octopus was the perfect level of spice, noticeable but didn't overpower the other flavours in the dish. I the fried fish went surprisingly well with the taco as well. Definitely something I'll order again.
I don't think it says anywhere, but if you order the chocolate dome, they let you yeet it into the plate to break the shell. That was a pretty cool experience.
Also, Sapporo is life and they have it on tap
