Situated along the stretch of Purvis Street (where the more popular Saveur resides), this restaurant's... slightly too quiet on a weekday. We were slightly hesitant on walking in as we caught some of the staff's hopeful faces peering into ours, somehow willing us to go in... and we did. We liked the elegant decor, and how the menu is being designed- simple and straightforward. Plus, the dinner set is quite wallet-friendly, at only $48.90 for a 3 course set that has quite a lot of the main dishes in.
We were handed the menu promptly and given glasses of ice water. The server then told us about the specials of the day. One of them caught my attention, though abit pricey at $16- Loster Bisque.
A bread basket came first, warm with fragrant butter, perfect for my growling tummy.
Followed by the Loster Bisque($16) with two cute wooden spoons, which seemed to enhanced the flavour of the soup. We weren't expecting any lobster meat in there, but there were- 2 shreds of meat. We chewed for a little too long before swallowing... (Precious!) The soup is big enough for two!
The Tray Baked Cod Fish ($36) is a sure-hit for me. I always had a soft spot for fish with mash potatoes, or with spinanch. Somehow the tenderness of the White Miso Marinated Cod goes really well the texture of the Potato Puree. The potatoes itself have to be able to stand out by itself of course. The Sauteed Shimeiji added a sweet note to the whole dish, reminding me of Takoyaki. I would say that this dish is quite girly, great for those who likes sweet.
Australian Grain Fed Ribeye Steak & Frites ($35)...Well, Grain Fed Ribeye usually does no wrong. We loved the main character of the dish- the steak. The texture and doneness is great, and of a good portion (220gm). But, the Black Pepper laid on top sauce overkilled it in the end, and I ended up finishing my Fish instead. The Grilled Roma Tomato & Salad were alright. But the Frites kind of disappointed us, because they were kind of bland. Perhaps it was because we had a McDonalds lunch, and we couldn't help but compare the difference between the taste, and the similarity of its size.

We were first served bread with butter. The butter was seasoned with salt and truffle oil, making the appetiser pleasing to the senses.

Next I had the baked cod with saffron broth. The cod was fresh and soft. The saffron broth was particularly flavourful, especially when eaten with the capers and kalamata olives found in the sauce.

Also had their apricot juice- a generous serving, the drink was refreshing.

Will not hesitate to visit this restaurant again. Heard that their crab salad with chilled pea soup is their signature starter, looking forward to trying it.
