Serenity Spanish Bar & Restaurant

I was invited for lunch one fine day, to an exotic Spanish restaurant...

Location: Level 1 of Vivocity (see precise location)

Website: official website, reviews and colourful pictures.

Price: $10.80 for soup, $43 for paella, $10.80 for poached pear dessert. Check the website for full menu.

Food:


Crema de Mariscos (creamy seafood soup) - as seen above, was a delicious soup served with toasted garlic bread. Generous with ingredients - mussels, prawns, squid, fish. Was a good generous serving too, I think I would have been full eating this alone. Mmm quality AND quantity!


Paella Valenciana (Spanish rice) - Good presentation, served in a wok (or a Spanish version of one). I liked it, it was like fried rice with saffron and a lot of ingredients - this one had mostly seafood ingredients plus chicken and capsicium. I remember this being slightly salty though. You can read more about paellas here, I've never tasted or heard of this dish before.


Peras al Vino Tinto (poached pear in red wine) - my first thought was, why is this served in a tacky looking blue plate? I'm not a fan of the taste of alcohol but the pear went reasonablly well with the ice cream. Serving was too small though!

Other: lovely environment both indoors and outdoor facing the waterfront. The restaurant had huge capacity to seat a large number of people, we had an early lunch so there were very few customers.

Rating: really depends what you're after. 4.5/5 for a classy place to relax, have a light meal. 3.5/5 if you're just in it for the food, because apart from the highly impressive soup, many items on the menu were way too expensive.
