SIN: Tablescape

One of the best, tangy salad dishes in the recent years!

Have you heard about Mövenpick Heritage Hotel in Sentosa Island, which is just a stone's throw away from Imbiah Station? Housed inside the hotel is Tablescape, a chic restaurant with a delightfully relaxing ambience.

I was around for the 3-Course Set Lunch, priced at S$66.00 per person. Two choices were offered for both appetisers and main courses, while the dessert was fixed. Since I went there with my BFF, we managed to try all the different dishes.


Two slices of sourdough bread was first served by the friendly trainee waiter. Studded with sultanas, the bread was sweet and savoury at the same time. Not to forget, it also had a good, airy texture. Upon spotting that I'd finished the two slices, the same waiter asked if I'd like to have more. I declined, but was impressed by his warm gesture.

Roasted Tomato Cream Soup (Set Menu)
Taste: 8.5/10

One of the appetiser dishes was the creamy roasted tomato soup which had a nice sweet and sour balance. It was thick enough for my liking, garnished with green pesto, adding a nice garlic aroma and a striking contrast to the vermilion-coloured soup. I'd definitely love to have more croutons though.

Farm-Grown Mesclun Mixed Salad (Set Menu)
Taste: 9/10

The other appetiser dish was the addictive salad which came with a generous portion of shredded smoked duck. It was truly one of the best salad dishes I've had in the recent years. For its adequately fresh vegetables, tossed with tantalising vinaigrette that was accentuated by sweet raisins and apples, I'd give two thumbs up.

Grilled Beef Sirloin (Set Menu)
Taste: 8/10

The beef main course came first after the appetiser dishes had been cleared. Doused in black pepper sauce, the grilled red meat was pretty good, but it could be more succulent. It was served with earthy roasted baby potatoes, as well as vegetables such as bell peppers, carrots and zucchinis.

Pan-Seared Barramundi (Set Menu)
Taste: 8.5/10

The fish main course came in the form of barramundi which was pan-seared lightly, retaining its firm texture, yet not devoid of its natural juice. What heightened the experience would be the tangy butter sauce infused with leek. The white flesh was resting on a bed of mashed potatoes which were pretty velvety.

Mövenpick Chocolate Crunch Sundae (Set Menu)
Taste: 6.5/10

Served in a chilled glass cup, the chocolate ice cream was adequately rich for my liking without being too sweet. However, the problem was in the homemade honeycomb that was so sticky that it got stuck in between the teeth very easily. Fortunately, the candied walnuts didn't commit the same crime.

Melon's Rating
Taste: 8/10
Ambience: 9/10
Service: 8.5/10
Overall: 8.5/10

Well, I suppose I can add the hotel to the list of staycation places I want to go for in the future. Pika's advice: The restaurant also offers a selection of local heritage cuisine for those who're interested.
