    Press Club: A Nice And Clean Place

    by yeikloen Written Apr 23, 2006

    A very nice and clean place to just relax after a long day sightseeing. Serve international cuisine from local spingroll to steaks. But for the money, I would suggest to go somewhere else.

    Favorite Dish: Springrolls...!!!!

  • THE PRESS CLUB: Lobster,Pasta and ketchup...

    From their website: "An award-winning* fine dining room, The Restaurant is committed to delivering deeply memorable dining experiences and is a renowned fine wine and cigar haven. Our chefs with their combined years of experience in hotels and restaurants around the world, delivers an uncompromising cuisine. This features the best local and imported produce, including the highest quality meats from small farms and hand-made pastas from artisan producers. The Restaurant exudes colonial charm and is complemented by an adjacent open-air Terrace and a relaxing Bar; and the intimate Library Bar beneath.
    *Best Fine Dining Restaurant, 1999 and 2000, Vietnam Economic Times"

    All that CAN'T HIDE the fact they are using frikkin KETCHUP for their "Wild Catch" Jumbo Prawn "Cocktail" in Coconut Jackets !!!! And of course, the prices are on the very high end close to ridicously overpriced and we had to use a MICROSCOPE to see where the liquors were on our glass when we ordered them (and they weren't cheap).

    Having said all that negative, it is worth a try if you can afford the big bucks. The Lobster with Black Bean Sauce was delicious as stated on the Lonely Planet guide, but even better were the "Rustichella Spaghetti Grilled Lamb Chop, Greek Kalamata Olive and Lamb Ragout".Being the big fan of Italian cuisine that we are, I must say these were the BEST Spaghetti we've ever had...and we've had quite a few !!! Absolutely astonishing, breath-taking delight!

    And be careful with the coffee at night....we couldn't sleep till 6:00 AM !!!
