Nice, cosy dining environment. No pretense, no extravagance, just a nice warm setting for a stress-less dinner. As they market it on their website, it's not fine dining and they want patrons to dine comfortably and that was exactly how it went. There were only...4 tables on the Wednesday evening, with 2 service crew including the floor manager. Both of them were prompt, always making sure our tables are attended to, but they look rather expressionless most of the evening. There were 3 of us. We went for the restaurant week degustation menu, but because there was only one dessert option we decided to change 2 other desserts for variety (with added cost of course). Came the starters. The foie gras was delicious, it was cooked perfectly and went very well with the dark cherry sauce. Tuna Carpaccio was okay, the meat was a little dry but taste wise it is alright. There were 3 options for the mains we could choose from so we had one of each. We ordered a 4th main - beef tartare served with fries and salad. The risotto with wild mushrooms was the best, flavour was intense and the rice was al dente. Duck Confit and Grilled Angus Beef Tenderloin (we ordered medium rare) paired with truffle mashed potatoes were nice, not overly seasoned but nothing to wow about. The beef tartare, apart from the weird combi of fries and salad instead of toast, was served with bigger chunks of beef instead of the typical minced meat. This adds to the chewy texture and while I personally love it, my wife preferred it minced. So it's a matter of personal preference. The flavours were pretty good. The chocolate tart was part of the degustation menu, and we changed two other desserts to a Crème Brulée and a Lemon Meringue Tart. We love all of them. Crème Brulée had the thickest sugar crust I ever had, the lemon sorbet that came with the meringue was tangy and refreshing, while the chocolate tart was rich and went well with the vanilla ice cream and caramel. The only disappointment was the 3 meagre slice of sourdough served as a starter. There were 3 of us so it meant one for us each, and they were not refillable. We can buy them however at $5 for 5 slices. Otherwise, it was a pleasant evening 👍🏼More

We choose this place as we wanted to visit Keong Saik area as we hadn’t been for a while. Reserved a table but there were only two other diners on mid week evening. We passed on the three course dinner but had escargots and foil...gras for starters first. Both were excellent, the foie gras well pan fried and cherries sauce not too over powering. For main course, I had the beef tartare and she had scallops with ratatouille. My beef tartare was good and her scallops were quite ok. we then split cheese for dessert and had three decent selections of excellent cheeses, livarot was my favourite. The food was excellent and good value, the decor and ambience was a bit lacking but it was nice and quiet for us, not so good for the restaurant. We really enjoyed the meal and will visit again.More

The overall dining experience at Taratata was a bit underwhelming for us. Despite being on time and placing our lunch order promptly, our order was not recorded and we had to wait 30minutes or so after I decided to ask the waiter what happened to...our food. While we waited for our food, we were not even served bread… if I hadn’t asked for it, perhaps that would have taken another 10 minutes or so. Service staff was a bit all over the place and we had to request for cutlery to be given. Not quite fitting for a supposedly fine dining restaurant. Soup was okay, baked cheese dish was average, steak was okay. Molten lava cake was delicious. Price wise it is quite good but I just with they improve the service standard and the quality of the food in general. The manager was too busy lost in the reservation sheet than to be bothered with us sitting idle for 30 mins without being served any food.More

Dinner on a Saturday evening with friends. Four of us opt for the set 3-course dinner meal and one for a la carte. What we liked - an $88 Pinot Noir was good, the lobster bisque was tasty but 3 portions were small - more...on that later, everyone enjoyed their beef tenderloin, except me. The Madeira sauce was my personal highlight and we agreed the set menu chocolate dessert was good although orange segments lacked depth of flavour and sweetness. The let’s downs - 1) all four of us ordered the lobster bisque but the one portion that was ordered a la carte was what I’d expect portion wise. The 3 of us ordering the set meal were served smaller portions in an unattractive kid size bowl. This is a bad move it made me feel cheap and unappreciated for ordering the set meal. Our friend with the proper size portion was also embarrassed dining with two men who had very small bowls. 2) The free bread basket shown on the menu wasn’t provided until we asked for it, half-way through our baby soups. 3) For the 3 tenderloin orders, my friends both asked for medium and I ordered medium rare. My friend got my medium rare, they got a medium right but mine was well served as medium rare by the waiting staff but was actually well done. ... uugghh ! 4) The gratin potato serving with the steak was small and there were no other vegetables at all. 5) The ice-cream portion served with the (set meal) chocolate dessert was again very small, about the size of a kids marble. 6) The cheese platter was very poor value considering it was a $5 premium for the set meal third course - the 3 pieces of cheese were so small with my plate by far the worst that I doubt there’s even $1.50 worth of cheese on my plate. It was a big let down and we all got different slivers of cheese but not offered a choice or cut at the table. The cheese was overshadowed by much larger pieces of French toast to help cover the plate and about one eighth of one walnut on my plate as a garnish . My verdict - the food is tasty but don’t go for the set meal if you are hungry or mix and match with guests can be embarrassing all round. At $69 ++ for the set meal it’s not acceptable to serve such small portions for this price and it definitely feels like you are being served as a second rate diner. I did not appreciate this experienceMore

Made a restaurant week booking for lunch at Taratata. 3 courses with escargot or terrine for starters, sea bass or steak for mains, and a citron tart for dessert. The good: - The best part of the meal was the complimentary bread and butter -...honestly top notch - Great ambience - background chatter from the other diners, great music, and the rain outside was a nice touch to the atmosphere - Service is very efficient - Sea bass dish with ratatouille was tasty and well plated The could-be-better: - Steak was underwhelming - being cooked to a perfect medium rare could not save it from the stringiness of the cut - Citron tart was on the sweet side - would've been great if the set came with coffee/tea to complement the dessertMore

Nice atmosphere and great dishes with friendly services by staff. The fragile Wifi access, almost impossible, at the table, makes us enjoy the dishes. Steak and white wine was my favourite.

Our family of 4 shared Christmas Eve at the brasserie — a fixed price meal ($95) for 4 courses. We arrived on time for an early 630 reservation. Surprised a bit by the ambience which was dark and a bit less lively than hoped. The...service was a bit off — one of us got a drink but no one else was asked what they’d like. Food was okay but not inspired. We poured our own wine as servers seemed a bit overwhelmed, despite the fact the place wasn’t really full. After our tasty desert was finished, we were told the next table was waiting outside. No question as to whether we wanted tea or coffee. Or anything else. Just done in 1:45. Must admit it left a bad taste in my mouth. For the price — and the season — I definitely would have expected more.More

We came with quite high expectations and had the executive set lunch. However, the food failed to impress. I topped up to get the rack of lamb and wanted it medium rare, but it came out close to well done. It is also too salty,...which is unfortunate because the cut of the meat was good. The other dishes in the set lunch - the steak and salmon was well presented but tasted average. The best dishes were the starters.The sourdough bread served gratis was good while the entrees - escargots and onion soup were delicious. The service was generally good but marred by a mix-up with one of the mains order which was rectified without fuss.More
