A rather small place – 45-seater.I have made a reservation at 8.30pm but we are more than an hour early. We are lucky to have a table as someone else did not turn up for their booking. We are showed to a table in the centre of the restaurant.

You could see the open kitchen very busy.

The restaurant week’s menu – 3 course dinner.

We are served hot pipping focaccia bread with a olive dip after placing our orders. Very soft bread.

For our first course :

Lobster bisque (Supplement of $6++)
combination of two way lobster bisque perfumed with heady cappuccino pernod.
Maybe I have too high expectation, after reading about so much good reviews about this dish. First the dish must have waited sometimes at the counter before been served as a layer has formed on soup by the time it reaches me. Secondly it does not blow me away. Just tastes so so, a waste of $6.

Wasabi and soy marinated salmon with sesame oil and scallion, Chill cucumber salad and caramel miso glaze
My partner who is having it, like it although she seldom takes raw fish.

For second course :

Confit pork belly accompanied by smashed crispy potato with fresh rosemary, Laced with cinnamon-pineapple sauce

Well done. But no enough crispy and the fat does not really has the melt in the mouth feeling.

Steamed chrysanthemum perfumed pink dory fillet served with saffron and lobster broth
Not salty enough, my partner still seasons it more with salt. Too light.

For the last course :

Dessert of the Day – Almond Parfait
served with fresh seasonal berries and strawberries.
Like the parfait which is thick and creamy.

Soy bean panna cotta, raspberry compote and mixed crushed nut
Very thick and creamy panna cotta. My partner likes it.

Total damages : $89.50
