We didnt know this place existed until a friend told us about it. Situated between Boat Quay and Clarke Quay and opposite beautiful park. Excellent table service and simple modern bistro food but big in flavuors.Try their classic hamburgers homemade from 100% ground beef.

We are frequent patrons here and come back every time for the amazing atmosphere , reasonable prices (starters $10 to mains $20) and friendly staff. Menu tweaks every 6 weeks which makes it interesting.
