If you ever watch the movie Safe Haven and love the set-up of a seaside restaurant, Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro
is definitely a better place for the unfolding of a love story. The waterfront breeze makes it cooling to have an alfresco dining, and there is a choice to sit indoors if you prefer brighter lighting. Sitting outdoors, of course, would grant you a magnificent view of the sunset over the yatches. From time to time, you'll see owners walking their dogs under the stars of the moonlit night.
Quayside storefront in the evening
The store is so spacious, that dancing around tables would be easy. It feels totally different from the hustle and bustle of the stressful Singapore— truly a place where conversations are light-hearted and you can take things slow and easy.
Unlike most sleezy bars, the bar in Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro
is brightly litted. Surprisingly, it does not destroy the mood of having a good time.BOCKTAIL PAIRINGRekorderlig Cider - S$12.90 (per bottle), S$10.90 (hh)A choice of Strawberry & Lime OR Wildberries
A concoction of Strawberry and Lime with fresh fruits
We were introduced to one of the most refreshing drink ever. It was filled with delicious fresh antioxidant fruits such as strawberries and blueberries, topped with a refreshing drink of the Rekorderlig cider. It was a great opening to the evening ahead.STARTERTuna Tataki - S$19.00
Delicious fresh starter
One of the more interesting palates was the Tuna tataki, which consisted of Pear crumble, wakame seaweed, avruga caviar, edible flower. Do not fear that it looks slightly raw, because it has been briefly seared over a hot flame without destroying the taste. Only the best can taste great in its original form (with little heating). The bits and pieces from the pear crumble was an ingenious idea, a perfect combination to the avruga caviar and wakame seaweed. Salad of The DayChef’s Selection of Salad — (Price: Refer to blackboard menu as it changes daily)
Changes daily to ensure maximum freshness!
This dish is changed daily depending on what comes in fresh on that day. While I think that QSFB could improve on their plating skills for this dish, every bit about the salad was fresh and juicy. The tiger prawns were served with yellow frisy and scallops, making every bite succulent and juicy. The sauces used were really balanced, with none overpowering it each other.MAIN COURSEQSFB’s signature chilli crab linguine - S$28.00A house specialty pasta
Crispy chilli crab with sweet spicy tomato sauce
This is probably the star of the entire meal. The soft-shell chilli crab rests upon a bed of linguine, innocently waiting for its food-tasting verdict. There is nothing overly pretentious about the dish, except for flakes of mixed herbs strewn across the plate. It was indeed a great pairing with the linguine as the smooth pasta went really well with the crispy protein.Baked Barramundi - S$29.00Pumpkin puree, red wine poached pear, lobster butter sauce, fried chorizo
Lovely seared and really fresh
My favourite among the plate was the lobster butter sauce — you must pair it with the Baked Barramundi to make it taste great. The consistency of the pumpkin puree was not as smooth, as I could still taste the bits and pieces of the pumpkin. The red wine poached pear don't really look as good, but it is actually a marriage of unique flavours.COCKTAIL PAIRINGSex at Quayside - S$16.00 (gls), S$14.00 (hh)prosecco, peach schnapps, cranberry juice, orange juice
Was a refreshing start initially but gradually tasted stronger at the bottom of the drink
While most of my diners love this drink, my youth must have made me think that it was too strong for me. STRANGELY, I keep wanting to slurp for more (until I ended up finishing the drink). On a random note, the tall glass made me felt like I was in Hawaii.DESSERTHomemade Tiramisu - S$14.00The best in Sentosa, some say Singapore
Love the layering and the cake was really light
One of the most difficult part of a full-meal is the dessert. Most chefs cannot make great dessert, but the chefs behind Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro managed to ace my expectations on their Tiramisu
. The Tiramisu is really well-balanced, light and fairy on the inside, with a slight sweet-bitter touch accompanied by the coffee and liquor. COCKTAIL PAIRING Chocolate Dreams - S$18.00 (gls), S$16.00 (hh)vodka, kahlua, cacao brown, baileys, milk and chocolate rim
One of the best alcoholic drink I ever drank!
My first impression of this drink was that it LOOKED quite diluted, but my oh my, it tasted great that I wanted so much more! Gulping down the cocktail was a great signal to my tastebuds that my meal has officially ended, though I knew somewhere in me craved for more.
Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro at night
By the time I exited the restaurant, about 2.5-3
hours have passed. It was a great ending to the night, and I'll definitely make it a point to visit the restaurant someday. Don't fret if it seems out of the way — it is well worth it
