Service was warm, attentive and professional. A birthday surprise was presented which was so thoughtful of a restaurant to do so! Food was amazing! One of the best fine dining places in Sg if not THE best. Special mention of our server -- Reza thank u so much for making our night so memorable!

I used to frequent the Lewin bungalow at Fort Canning Park when it was run as Flutes at the Fort. It sits on a slope overlooking the fire station completely surrounded by trees and greenery and blossoming franjipani. The veranda is definitely the highlight of the place where one can enjoy the colonial style architecture which looks pretty close to what it would have looked like over 100 years ago. I had a special occasion to celebrate and the veranda was the perfect setting. The friendly staff helped by directing a fan towards our table to alleviate the midday heat. We ordered the business lunch set menu. Fortunately I was here for the atmosphere which is lovely to say the least; sadly the food underwhelmed. The appetiser of white asparagus, smoked duck, green peas and egg was a good concept, but I don't believe in serving raw egg white on a dish of this sort. For the mains, we had the seabass roast and the lamb rack roast. The seabass was cooked well but surprisingly the mashed potatoes were not. They tasted as if they were cooked the day before with more milk flavour than potato. And they were cold. The lamb tasted more like beef and was incredibly tough and devoid of elegant flavour the price tag demands. Each of the two tiny morsels had a bone inserted into them to make them look like lamb chops. The eggplant rolls were simply terrible and cold; and finally there was a brush of green peas across the plate. There was not enough substance to taste anything so the effect was purely ornamental. Perhaps I missed out on the latest trend in ornamental food creations. My bad!

For those of you who drive, the restaurant has a shared the carpark with the museum which includes valet service. From the carpark, it is quite a walk up those stairs to get to the restaurant. Definitely not recommended for those who have knee / leg problems or are heavily pregnant.

The decor is elegant and classy with light homey tones of brown set against a white dreamy background. There are both indoor and outdoor seating.

It was a 5 course meal and we had:
1. Salmon & Roe with Cauliflower and Sesame Oil
2. Hokkaido Kegani (King Crab) with NAMAFU and Japanese Fishcake
3. Codfish with Mango, Savoy Cabbage and Lime Leaf
4. Australian Lamb Loin with Bitter Orange and 6 years Kanzuri /
Amadai (Tile Fish) with Lily Root and Koshihikari
5. Raspberry Eclair with Rose and Setouchi Organic Lemon

There were some hits and misses, and while the flavors were innovative, they were really nothing to rave about. Moreover, although the ambience and plating of the food was exquisite, the portions were a disappointment. That said, overall, it was still an interesting fine dining experience. For more photos and the experience, please check out my blog.
