With the opening of the Resorts World Sentosa (RWS), we have seen the addition of a dozen new restaurants to the Singapore food scene. While it is good that we have more options now, deciding on a place for dinner can also be quite a headache.
We were choosing between Starz Restaurant (Hard Rock Hotel) and Fiesta Restaurant (Festive Hotel), and we went for the latter because I’ve heard about their BBQ buffet.
Unfortunately, we were there on a Wednesday and the BBQ buffet dinner is only available from Fridays to Sundays. On weekdays, Fiesta has a semi-buffet dinner where the appetiser and dessert buffet is included in the price of a main course.
It was getting late and we didn’t want to find another restaurant, so we settled for the semi-buffet and ordered from the ala carte menu.
I know we shouldn’t complain about the complimentary appetiser/dessert buffet since we are only paying the price of the main course, but they were pathetic. It makes me wonder why the restaurant even bother to offer the semi-buffet in the first place.
That said, the main courses which we had were pretty decent.
There are eleven dishes on Fiesta’s ala carte menu, and it has a good mix to satisfy everyone. Meat lovers will be tempted by the Ribeye ($32), Pineapple Pork Ribs ($32) and Grilled Spring Chicken ($38). I find it funny that the chicken is actually more expensive than the steak. That aside, other interesting choices include the Feijoada ($32) – traditional Brazilian black bean stew with pork & beef; and the Brazilian mix platter ($36) – combination of sausage, ribeye steak and spring chicken.
As we were in a big group, we managed to try quite a few dishes. Most of them were not bad, but they were not outstanding enough for me to stop and really take notice of it.
I might go back to Fiesta Restaurant to try the BBQ buffet dinner ($55++/pax) from Fridays to Sundays, but if I am at Resorts World Sentosa on weekdays, I’d probably give the ala carte menu a miss.
