Served with mixed berries and a nicely scooped raspberry sorbet, I liked that the richness of the cheesecake did not overwhelm, especially after a heavy main. On a separate occasion, I would generally prefer a creamy and rich cheesecake but this light version suited the course well. The freshness and tang from the berries, particularly from the raspberry sorbet cleaned our palate. A very tropical dessert that was elegantly plated to conclude an evening of gorgeous calories.
With a smart casual dress code that needs to be observed by the guests, the restaurant is definitely prime. What we liked about the team servicing our table was their attentiveness such as bringing a stool for our bags. Despite the somewhat lacklustre start to our dinner, the three-course dinner was executed well, from appetisers through to the tomahawk steak before ending strongly with a sweet decadence in that cheesecake well-balanced with other components on the plate.
It is always challenging for the chefs and everyone working hard at the open kitchen since all are exposed to public scrutiny but I thought that the team pulled off an impressive dinner. Consider us ignorant, but we are more familiar with the other restaurants at Raffles Hotel, now we know where is a good steakhouse in Singapore that would impress.
Hurry down as this exclusive special offering of the Tomahawk steak is only available this month!
