I had to make sure, that we get in, the famous Forest House Bistro and Café this time! The last uneventful visit, when we were refused entry (since I underestimated the place and forego reservations) - was truly a bad experience.
I called up Forest House and confirmed a dinner table for four.
We came a little early for dinner and it was a good thing, since parking is limited and could be a nightmare if we came a little later.
The place was half full when we came in. The place is intimate and nicely decorated in cottage-country home motif and lovely eye candy trinkets all over.
There is a small veranda outside,
but view wasn't as terrific as I thought.
|We ordered the house specialties from L-R/T-B, Forest House wine sauced chicken, mini burgers with fries, fettuccine carbonara and baby back ribs.|
AMBIANCE - Homey and relaxed, however, I was disappointed with the view. I was expecting more. BenCab's Café Sabel has by far a more superior view and would choose Café Sabel on the basis of view alone.
STAFF - Nice and attentive, but service is quite slow.
PRICE - On the expensive side.
FOOD - Good, but not exceptional. The carrot cake that we ordered was perfect with our Forest House coffee.
Next time, we would probably be back for an afternoon coffee or tea, with one of their yummy deserts.
