The food was a hit-and-miss: oysters are a must-try, fish catches cooked in the style of grilling or pan-searing are a fail-safe, pastas are a hard pass, and squid, done any way, is a cannot miss.
1) For oysters, Canadian Golden Mantle ($4) are best for people who love big bold flavours; whereas the Canadian Mary Point ($4) is for people with a sweet tooth, the Irish one ($4) will be preferred by people who like things delicate (this was my favourite), and the French Gillardeau ($8) is for people who think only good thigns come in big packages, which probably explains its double pricetag.
2) Hot Seafood Platter ($99): a massive medley of half a Boston lobster, grilled prawns, fish skewers, NZ mussels with garlic, littleneck clams in white wine, char-grilled Mediterranean squid, oysters mornay with caramelised onions, grilled octopus in spicy vinaigrette mesclun, and fries. It looked a rustic mess, but was deliciously value-for-money. Standouts include the squid and octopus, both were executed flawlessly.
3) Squid Ink Linguine ($21.95) - slicked with the moreish essence of squid ink: I liked that it was generously dotted with perfectly cooked calamari.
4) Scallop Cioppino ($23.95): an unusual but wonderful combination of spinach pesto-ed spaghetti and spicy arrabiatta, but let down by overcooked rubbery scallops.
5) White Truffle Linguine ($23.95) - white truffle tapenade swirled into parmesan cream, and flecked with shitake aplenty: waaaay too rich, this got cloying about halfway through.
6) Char-Grilled Atlantic Halibut ($32.95): delicate and beautifully burnished, drizzled with a velvety herbed butter, and sided by grilled asparagus, broccoli and marinated cherry tomatoes. Fantastic stuff, even if I found a number of bones embedded within.
7) Pan-Seared Atlantic Cod ($29.95): perfectly flaky and luscious, and served with grilled zucchini, eggplant, broccoli, herbed cherry tomatoes, atop a bed of fluffy mash

a friend arranged a wine dinner at greenwood fish bistro on 19.11.2015. 8 of us attended. ^^
the same friend arranged fun wine dinners at (1) zaffereno & (2) halia previously
this evening we had a S$69pax 5-course dinner w/o dessert & coffee.
as i don’t drink i look only at the food menu whether i want to pay that just for the food.
the restaurant was kind enough to offer juice etc.
i took the wine. prosecco was good. i liked the white after this best.
reds were quite good too. the restaurant gave me a cranberry drink afterwards too, a great gesture.
first course were some smoked canapes. these were very good!the smoked salmon & mussels were excellent…how to describe? smokey i guess, very flavourful.
the smoked trout (the server said cold smoked) was so-so, not so tasty.the second course cured salmon with avocado also very nice. it was though nothing special.
the 3rd course barramundi was excellent!
not sure if barramundi is farmed in singapore like the smaller local seabass. this one the meat is firmer, not so “hu” like falling apart.
however 2 of my friends complained that the meat was soft. the rest of us were ok…maybe they got the local seabass instead? just kidding.
the 4th course was a duck confit?
it was a huge disaster! meat was tough & not edible!
actually the server said it was sous vide then cooked in oven (maybe the server got it wrong, just don’t sound right!)..
firstly of course duck confit is cooked in duck fat..while the word confit is used loosely to mean slow braise like say pineapple confit or belly pork confit, for duck confit it usually mean strictly duck confit. & i’m not sure you can roast in oven after sous vide.
my own 5hr sous vide crispy skin canard a l’orange
i would think a cold pan method of rendering out the fat & crisping the skin w/o overcooking the meat makes a lot more sense (above photo)…notice the fat had rendered out..
restaurant was great to do a service recovery.
they replaced the dish with a octopus.
it was competent dish, not the best but i guess good enough.
you could say a fish bistro would do an octopus dish better than a duck dish?
but then for the last course they served a really “kick-a**” belly pork.this was one of the best i have taken! ^^
not really smoked but just a hint of a flavourful ham, very tender & delicious.
i have a tea brined belly pork in the fridge now. planning to sous vide then pan-charred the skin. see if i can get anyway close or similar to this excellent piece. :-)
thanks to our friend, we had many fun evenings trying out different wine dinners & spending great time together.
i am not sure how their service is on normal days but for this evening, i think service was really quite exemplary & they really tried their best (from offering non alcoholic drinks to replacing the 4th course – even though they did not have much choice with the duck being such a quite monumental failure).

The first platter of Oysters was served - encompassing 7-8 different types of fresh, juicy oysters. The pinkish dip in the middle was a special concoction comprising of raspberries, shallots and vinaigrette. While it has a fabulous flavour, true oysters lovers are encouraged to abstain from using (too much) of it so that we are able to taste the natural flavours of the oysters.

We started with NZ Pacifics oysters - light creamy texture with delicate and clean flavour with a sweet finish. I really enjoyed this large and juicy oyster.

Then we tried the Tsarskaya oysters - firm to crunchy texture with flavours of iodine, almond and hazelnut - one of my favorite oysters of the night. It felt almost like chewing on crunchy black fungus when I nibbled on this oyster.

Next, we attacked the Kumamoto oysters - very sweet with a honeydew finish, another absolute palate pleaser.

Besides fresh seafood, Greenwood Fish Market & Bistro also does some pretty fabulous meats and sandwiches as well. Here was a sampler, encompassing the crackliest bread I've ever eaten on any sandwich, thus gaining lots of points instanteously.   On the left, there were the Mashed Egg with Mackerel, Pulled Pork, Spicy Octopus and Smoked Mussels. The mashed egg with mackerel was a favorite of mine, encompassing the fragrance of mashed hard-boiled egg with mackerel's umami taste. I also enjoyed the chewy and smokey hints of the fresh mussels - never thought these delicacies could be encompassed into sandwiches, but I would certainly love that.
Cherry Tart

Finally, time for desserts! This Cherry Tart was so pretty and fluffy-looking with its mount of fresh cream. The crust was buttery, crunchy and very delectable; but what I loved more were the plump fresh cherries hidden underneath the mount of fresh cream and bursting with sweetness when bitten into. It was the perfect dessert to conclude an evening of seafood with.

Taste good and quite healthy as well for its low oil and less salt contents. Good and affordable!

This bistro specializes in seafood and especially fishes. We decided to skip the standard fare fish and chips and treat ourselves to grilled fish instead. It was not a bad choice. The fish was very fresh and expertly grilled. I like the crispy skin texture of the fish and the meat was delightful. The greens were also fresh. The pricing is based on market prices of the fish and we paid around 30 dollars for this. It’s pretty reasonable.

My parents bought the fish and chips back for dinner as they had a coupon/voucher for 1-for-1 fish and chips. I like how the fish and chips remained crispy and fries did not turn soggy (yet!). The two slices of fish were thick and juicy, definitely worth the price! The batter wasn't very thick as well, so you can taste more of the fish than the deep fried coating around it! Perfect! the chips were those they were fat and filled with potato. It was very very delicious. I couldn't stop eating one

the chips were those they were fat and filled with potato. It was very very delicious. I couldn't stop eating one fry after another! Plus, the portion was quite big, so it's possible to share with a friend if one's appetite isn't that big.

The Norwegian salmon sashimi is comparable to those that i had when i went to japan! It was so so so fresh! and the cut was quite thick. Also, they have a promotion every wednesday for sashimi! If i'm not wrong, $9.90 for salmon sashimi. So go on a wednesday if you want to try! The chef was also very generous in serving size. They also gave these cute little bottles of soy sauce for the wasabi. I think it's easier to squirt it out than the small plastic bags (similar to those in instant noodle packets). The wasabi is different as it was more.. mashed up (?) but the kick was definitely stronger than normal!


I will definitely go back to the store to try out other items!

Our meal arrived in a very short while and then we quickly began to feast on our pile of yummy fish n chips. Their fish and chips is goood! Very nicely fried. However, the fish is not oily. It is also not fishy at all unlike some others which I have tried. Very appetizing! Their fries are good too! Not too salty. The portion however is too big that we cant finish it, although we really wanted to as it is too good!

Greenwood Fish Bistro gave me an initial 'atas' impression because of where it's situated at, as well as the initial sight of westerners lounging around the area, chit-chatting with booze in hand.

My friend and I entered this small hidden eatery to find ourselves warmly welcomed by a very quiet, comfortable and laid back ambience.

We sat down and already enjoying the atmosphere. It's the sort of place you could sit at for hours just talking, let alone the eating.

We ordered the deep fried calamari ($10.95) as our starters. It is on the pricey range - I must admit. But i figured that it's relatively okay for a place with such an 'atas' feel, especially in a neighborhood where I believe many expats live.

My friend and I each ordered from the list of Premium Fish ($26.95 each).

The fish was oh-so-tender and very flavorful. Most probably the reason why it's a fish bistro in the first place. So if you ever decide to eat here, the fish is a must!
