This is a real gem. It combines both good quality local fare with a good wine list. It is also very close to Jonker St so you can eat well and then shop in Jonker St!

The restaurant is old colonial style, tasteful done and spacious. Service was rapid and efficient. Food perfectly acceptable without being exceptional. The outlook over the river is fine. Well worth a visit just to experience the relaxed atmosphere

Tried Nyonya food at this restaurant. Pleasant place by the river. European style service and atmosphere. Food quality not the best but foreigners it is worth trying. As it is clean, moderate taste and friendly service. Expensive than other options.

The buffet menu have been changing to suit the needs of locals like me here. A wide range from rice, noodles, tandoori as well as western and BBQ items on offer. Great atmosphere for those looking to eat outdoors.
