Time Out says
This 200-seat modern bistro and bar by Cre8 Group flaunts its sexy, industrial-cool vibe with evident relish – gorgeous décor, antique knickknacks and a coveted rooftop bar space makes this the go-to place for pre-concert cocktails and late night bites.
Given its prime location by the Esplanade, it wouldn’t be a surprise if they simply fell back on the tourist crowds – and by all accounts, that’s what the food seems to be pointing to thus far. The Italian and Peruvian upsell (strictly no fusion fare) might sound exotic on paper, but authentic Peruvian fare this certainly is not – our ceviche mixto ($16) came sans most of its seafood ingredients, while the shrimp and avocado salad with a Peruvianinspired citrus dressing was a bland, uninspiring mess.
The few bright sparks on our visit came in the form of their crispy, thin-crust pizzas ($17/$21, with over 20 varieties) and a rather interesting carte blanche offering – choose from six types of meats (chicken, beef, pork, fish, lamb and wagyu) that’s prepared differently everyday. It’s a gamble you’ll have to take. Lee Min Kok
