Visited on 2 Sep 2017 and Revisited on 21 Oct 2017 (Sat). Brasserie Les Saveurs offers contemporary French cuisine with floor-to-ceiling windows, overlooking the tropical gardens and sparkling pool. The glittering enormous three hand-cut crystal chandeliers exudes elegant ambience. 

There are 2 private dining rooms here!

Mushroom Veloute

Chicken Salad

Although I'm not a salad lover, but I love the way they present the chicken salad into a small bottle. Their unique presentation made me grab 1 bottle to try. Haha.. This chicken salad not only pleasing to the eye but also the palette. :)

Japanese Station

 Wide Variety of Bakery Selection

Duck Rillette

You will be greeted by these lovely desserts as you enter the entrance of the restaurant! There are around 10 dessert selections, excluding ice-cream and chocolate fountain. This is the only hotel restaurant that offers wide variety dessert selection for semi-buffet, the main reason for me to visit again and again! :)

Coffee & Azuki Bean Panna Cotta

Bandung Rose Jelly

Fruit Tart

Pandan Kaya Cake

Chocolate Mousse Tart

Chocolate Kopi C

Berries of the Wood

Angel Food Cake

Yuzu & Apple Cake

Premium Quality Ice-Cream Selection on 21 Oct 2017

They have really nice coconut ice-cream with coconut flakes on it!!

Fruits in pretty petite glass on 21 Oct 2017

Nicely Cut Fruits on 21 Oct 2017

Select 1 Main Course from the Selection 
(Menu changes once in every few months)

The seabass was tender and flavourful!

Roasted Half Spring Baby Chicken

I did not enjoy this dish. The meat was tough and it tasted bland.

Oven-Roasted Norwegian Salmon

So far this is one of the better main course among the rest! From the exterior super char skin appearance, I thought the salmon was going to be tough. But to my surprise, the meat was tender and tasty with extremely crispy skin! 

Complimentary 1 Round of Coffee Or Tea Selection
So far this is the only hotel restaurant that uses this premium Italian Roast Coffee - Julius Meinl. This is another reason to make me come back! :)

Overall Impression: You can expect top-notch service here. The most high class hotel restaurant in Singapore! But I still see quite a few people wearing T-shirt with bermudas, which doesn't suit the "atas" ambience here. 

The food quality for the main course were quite good but not that fantastic, still needs some improvements. Their desserts not only looks lovely but tasted great! Just that, this is a French restaurant but don't know why most of the desserts were quite local style.. Haha.. The price is slightly on the high side, but with the Peaceful & Elegant Ambience + Nice Desserts + Quite Good Main Course + Very Good Coffee + Top-Notch Service, it's definitely worth it! Will definitely come back again!

Visited on 10 Oct 2017 (Tues). Seasonal Tastes offers Asian to International fare, with a live interactive kitchen concept to provide a truly personalised dining experience in Marina Bay. The restaurant is huge, cosy with casual design features sweeping floor-to-ceiling windows that show off breathtaking sea view. 

This is the beautiful lift lobby at Level 32! On the right will be Seasonal Tastes!

I love this cloudy day sea view. Feels so relax and lazy here, don't feel like leaving.. Haha

Self Service Coffee (Italian Coffee)

 Enjoy a cup of coffee by the window!

Dessert Station with White Chocolate Fountain

Shooter Glass: Chocolate Mousse / Mango Jelly
Left: Mango Cake
Right: Cheese Cake

Wow this is the first time to see a hotel restaurant use ice chiller table top to keep the desserts cool at all times! I love this concept very much as it is so convenient without open or close the chiller door and the temperature of the desserts are as good as from a fridge. I hope to see more hotel restaurants using this!

Gelato: Vanilla / Dark Chocolate / 
Avocado / Strawberry 
Sorbet: Blood Orange (Center)
 I love the blood orange sorbet to the max! The taste was a tad sour with orange scent, very refreshing! This is a very good dessert to cleanse your palate especially after a full buffet.

Pandan Castella Cake

Opera Cake

Steamed Rice Cake Or Wa Ko Kueh
(Popular Local Cake)

Chocolate Financier

Yuzu Mousse

Hot Dishes:
Wok Fried River Fish with
Five Spice Pepper Salt

I like five spice pepper salt food. But the fish has many bones, so must be careful when eating this. The taste was of course great!

Cauliflower Gratin

Roasted Beef

Braised Pork Belly

Braised Duck

Hokkien Mee

Steamed Hainanese Chicken 

Left Pot: Chicken Broth
Right Pot: Singapore Laksa

Left to Right:

DIY Salad Station

Mussels, Prawns, Scallops and Flower Crabs On Ice Station

Assorted Sushi

Appetizers Station

Pasta Station

I like the creamy yummy pasta!

Overall Impression: The service here was alright, just that it took them quite long to clear the plates. Their hot dishes are mostly like home-cooked food. Don't expect wide variety of food here. Food and dessert quality were decent. But the ambience is really very relaxing and comfortable with the sea view, so it makes up for the quality in some of the food items. 

This restaurant is really huge that can hold big gatherings. So if you're looking for a simple buffet in a spacious and high-rise hotel restaurant with sea view and adequate food quantity, this is the place for you!

Note: Seasonal Tastes do not provide complimentary carpark coupon anymore!
