Disappointed. Food is average but overpriced and service was awful. Regret to visit, wasted money and time. No plan to visit again.

Lobster give away is great for birthdays, one must buy the BAG which costs SGD180+. Fair enough although you are somehwhat paying for the 'free' lobster. Wine had to be ordered by the bottle and not sold as glasses, having said that, the wine selection...arent fantastic and the bottle we had to buy, wasnt good just drinkable for the not cheap bottle of red.More

Food Fresh seafood, delectable sauces! Not the cheapest but you can expect good and consistent quality. Ambiance Casual dining place with lots of tables. Conveniently located at Esplanade, it’s a great place to visit for seafood lovers around evening time so as to catch the...sunset and have a walk along the promenade. Service Had one very attentive waitress who was running the show on the ground, did not manage to catch her name but she was amazing and very fast in her service.More

Dine at this place at least thrice yearly for the past 8 years. Food has been great. Recently the price has increased 20%. Quantity has reduced. Previous allow seafood bag and lobster with different sauces. Now only allow one. Standard has dropped. Service still excellent.

BROILER,,, a reminder of the pathetic state of some Singapore restaurants that dont actually cook the menu more akin to inflight dining. Guests allowed to purse a menu for 5 minutes only to be told after making choices that several pages are not available for...dinner,,,, only for lunch. Seems the cost to photo copy separate lunch and dinner menu is beyond their capability Garlic prawns that are served at the table in the manufacturers plastic back after being warmed up,,, likely in microwave or water bath. Pork ribs that are reheated,,, not cooked at all in the restaurant. Chili crab where you have to request the tools to eat,, rather than be offered by the staff And a claim of being Singapore's best seafood,,, That is the greatest shock. You do get what you pay for any while not the most expensive,,, It is a waste of money and calories. 1 out of 10More

the chap that was lauded in many reviews must have not been there that evening. food was plunked onto the table, not a word, nor a glance. cook or chef stared out at the few tables from the kitchen window, and the wait staff just...grouped in a corner, zero interaction with diners. really weird experience........More

With a warm and cozy ambience, this restaurant offers an array of mouth-watering seafood dishes such as their signature Louisiana-style seafood boil, served in a hot pot brimming with succulent prawns, clams, and crabs. The freshness and quality of the ingredients are evident in every...bite, and the service is top-notch. I highly recommend trying their Cajun fries and seafood platters for a satisfying and indulgent meal. My only critique would be the limited seating, so be sure to make a reservation in advance.More

The food was served really piping hot, you can know is straight from the kitchen to the table without delay. We ordered 3 mains; Haddock Fish & Chips, BBQ Ribs and Mushroom Aglio Olio. The Haddock fish although came in 3 portion but we couldn't...blame sometimes the fishes are just not big enough and so you have to compensate into 3 portions. The ribs were very nicely marinated, I never like BBQ ribs but I wouldn't mind going for their ribs. Is not some standard BBQ sauce that you can get it over at other restaruant. I think is more like a hickory bbq sauce and is very yummy. The mushroom Aglio olio altough is a little dry but the pasta are cooked to al dente, perhaps a little more wet will be ideal. The fries were crispy and not stale. I would recommend anyone to pop over for their lunch set which are only served during lunch. Oh yes, their ice lemon tea do not taste like those bottled one as I can taste the aromatic tea leaves with every sips. If my guess is right, thank you for doing that as which restaurant now make their own ice lemon tea. By the way their ice lemon tea is free flow; thanks for the gesture. Definetly a good place for food!More

The seafood was very fresh and cooked well. The birthday promotion of the free lobster is a huge draw for diners.
