The Queen & Mangosteen is a really pretty restaurant located within Vivocity offering waterfront view and beautiful goddess statues at the back / alfresco seating areas. Of course, the interior is decorated in quasi-English style, complete with brick walls and lovely chandeliers.
Serving British cuisine with an Asian fusion twist, The Queen & Mangosteen offers a casual chic yet cosy ambience for diners. The mangosteen is said to be the Queen's favorite fruit (mine too!). Service leaves lots of room for improvement though.
*Pris and I started with the Thai Crab Cake (SGD$12.00) served with mango salsa with baby cress. It looked good on presentation, and the taste did not disappoint. A little on the spicy side, the crab cakes were crispy on the golden exterior, and the inside was firmly tasty with the luscious flavor of crab.
For mains, *Pris had the Pan Seared Barramundi (SGD$26.00) served with risotto, asparagus and salsa verde. *Pris mentioned that while the fish was succulent, the salsa verde was a tad too sour for her liking.
I had The Queen's Favorite Fisherman's Pie (SGD$22.00) - a baked dish of white cream sauce , cheese, mashed potato , prawns, snapper and scallops and a side salad. The taste was light, as was the texture. There were three large prawns and a healthy amount of soft snapper, but I did not detect any scallops. It was rather tasty in a homely, wholesome manner.
The overall dining experience here average - something that was enjoyable enough but may not warrant another revisit in the near future.
