I've heard some raves about this place and they also happened to have 1-for-1 uob set meal promotion($68++). With that, it urged me not to miss out and attracted me to give it a try.We were greeted by a small but posh and beautiful interior restaurant. Wine glasses decorated the fine ambience. A friendly waiter escorted us to our seats with the menu. I was amazed by the wide choices of varieties.

I've heard some raves about this place and they also happened to have 1-for-1 uob set meal promotion($68++). With that, it urged me not to miss out and attracted me to give it a try.

We were greeted by a small but posh and beautiful interior restaurant. Wine glasses decorated the fine ambience. A friendly waiter escorted us to our seats with the menu. I was amazed by the wide choices of varieties. Sometimes at fine dining restaurants, we'd only be given a choice for the main course, usually beef or seafood. However at L'Oliver, we were allowed to choose our main course among approximately 6-8 choices and same for the dessert.

It was a three-course meal and we were first served with Soup, it happened to be Pumpkin for soup of the day and I love pumpkin, so personally it was definitely damn good. The complimentary bread basket they served consisted of 3 varieties: plain, whole grains and cranberry. I love how sweet and juicy the cranberries in the bread were. Dipping them in olive oil and vinegar was so yummy.

I choose the sirloin beef steak, and the serving was really generous. Juicy and tender, red colored beef juice were oozing out as it was sliced. My boyfriend took the pork chops, I didn't actually try it so I can't say my stand but he complimented that it was well-marinated except that it looked rather inferior in size compared to mine.

I had a lava chocolate cake that was served with raspberry sorbet and garnished with strawberries. The lava chocolate cake was simply heavenly rich and the cocoa flavor was intense. I couldn't finish the cake but the lava chocolate was so good I practically polished the fudge off the white dining plate. My boyfriend on the other hand, chose the creme brulee. Though being a self-confessed chocolate lover, the creme brulee was frankly and surely more addictive. It was all smooth, silky, creamy, luscious and caramelized. Oh, caramelized, it was such a sweet treat that tempted us wanting more.

We also ordered a bottle of red wine to go with. Overall it was a lovely experience. In fact, my boyfriend and I dined there for a second time on my dad’s birthday celebration.
