Ambiene at Seasonal Tastes is fantastic. Floor to ceiling length windows offer perfect view of the bay area, while decor is modern contemporary chic. The spacious layout even has semi-private alcoves, while furniture is not only eye-catching but comfortable as well. The buffet spread is well laid out in sections (Fresh Seafood, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Desserts), though the actual flow of the spread isn't linear. Overall ambient lighting is also rather dim.

Service at Seasonal Tastes is outstanding. Staff are friendly and polite, offering greetings on entry. Efficient as well, clearing empty plates quickly, and topping up water glasses without being asked. I must also commend the Seasonal Tastes staff, on 1 anonymous visit I had left my camera behind, and only discovered the loss after I had departed the hotel premesis. Panicked, I returned, only to find the Seasonal Tastes staff holding onto it, and searching the hotel for me. Excellent, memorable service!

Food at Seasonal Tastes is generally of high quality, with each chef having dedicated specialities. Helmed by German Executive Chef Sven Cepon, the team comprises both local and regional chefs, each specialising in their own cuisine. Dishes are freshly prepared daily according to traditional recipes, and the menu is rotated regularly to keep things fresh even for repeat diners. Prices at Seasonal Tastes are on the upper end, budget about SGD $70 per person for the dinner buffet.

The unique Lobster Russian Salad With Vodka Mayonnaise features loads of fresh potatoes, peas, cherry tomatoes and dill, along with fresh, meaty, succulent lobster meat. The vodka mayonnaise is light, not too heavy or overpowering, and complements the freshness of this cold salad.

Loved the Fusilli Pasta Salad, Sundried Tomato Dressing With Shaved Prosciutto Ham! The ham lent a salty, savoury taste to the clean, fresh taste of the pasta, while the sundried tomato added a burst of juicy flavour in the mouth.

The Macaroni And Cheese Salad With Smoked Chicken features hand made macaroni, with a nice bouncy texture. The smoked chicken is done perfectly, lending a savoury, smoky taste and lifting the whole dish. But I couldn't detect the presence of the cheese at all.

The Vegetable Lasagna is decent, featuring a heaping amount of fresh vegetables within, including zucchini, eggplant / aubergine, and the use of fresh tomato paste. The noodles were unevenly cooked though, some parts were soft and pliant, others were hard and crisp.

Every night, the chef prepares a special hand out served to each table, and we got the Lobster Thermidor. Chunks of fresh lobster cooked with egg yolks, cognac, powdered mustard and gruyere cheese, the Lobster Thermidor is served in its own shell, and is a decadent dish. Eating it feels like an indulgent extravagance!

Ordered the Mushroom Tortellini Aglio Olio With Bacon & Crispy Garlic from the live pasta station, it was outstanding! The best part as the use of the crispy fried garlic bits in the aglio olio, which releases a burst of flavour! The dried red chili added some heat to the olive oil, while the addition of bacon on request lent a smoky, salty flavour to the pasta. The Mushroom Tortellini itself is hand made, and contains a small chunk of fresh mushroom within, I felt the skin was perfectly done, not too thick or thin in texture, and holding together well.

The hand made gelato ice cream at Seasonal Tastes is a house secret, and all their flavours are extremely good! The Hand Made Coconut Gelato is smooth and creamy, and you can actually taste the coconut flavour!

I thought the Hand Made Avocado Gelato was probably the best among the flavours here, simply because it's not a common flavour. The taste of the avocado is prominent in the gelato ice cream, and the texture is creamy, smooth, and somewhat light.

Overall, Seasonal Tastes offers great tasting, quality food for a high end buffet, with prices to match. The rotating menu keeps things fresh and interesting, making repeat dining a big attraction. And with fantastic views of the area and outstanding service, it's no surprise I've already visited Seasonal Tastes several times!
