With its delicious, authentic Mediterranean cuisine, its professional yet sprightly waiters and its rustic yet homely ambience, this Esmirada Restaurant truly offers a dining experience like no other.

Signature dishes such as the tantalizing Esmirada Meat-Skewers served on an iron frame, the juicy seafood Paella or the spicy Moroccan Cous Cous have made this Restaurant popular among diners. For those who prefer al fresco dining, Esmirada Orchard boasts a beautiful patio with comfortable seats, surrounded by lush greenery.

    Tiramisu is still good~

    Had a lunch meeting there last week. A group of us 6 ladies ordered: 1. Cesar Salad 2. Warm Spinach Salad 3. Esmirada's Famous Garlic Bread 4. Suckling Pig 5. Tiramisu 6. Melting Moments

    The 2 salads were really just standard fare, nothing memorable. And I think their garlic bread is famous for their presentation: it's a whole baguette in this tall bread stand, spread with garlic and too much butter if you ask me; could be better. Modesto's across the road might be a better choice for garlic bread.

    The suckling pig is an item not on their menu, you have to pre-order it at least 2 days in advance. My boss said she had it once and it was so good she had to have it again, so I went expecting a wow. But sadly, it fell short. Unlike the Chinese way, they roast the pig(let) whole without any marinate and served it already chopped up into pieces. We asked for sauces and was told it doesn't come with any. I got tired of eating it after 2 pieces because it was too dry and bland for my liking.

    Desserts fared better. Their tiramisu was once named the best tiramisu in Singapore, and I think they kept to the standard pretty much. Good considering the countless bad tiramisus I've tried. The melting moments came overcooked though..didn't come with a liquid chocolate centre as we were told.

    I caught a glimsp of the bill when it came, and it was about $350, which i feel was too pricey. For this price, the pig could have been better.

    Service was rather faultess though: efficient and attentive coupled with cheery attitude. Had to ask them to turn down the volume of the music though, as it got too loud for our lunch meeting.

    Still a very quiet lunch place despite being in orchard road, we were the 5th occupied table. Perhaps their 2-course / 3-course set lunches ($22 / $30 per set) would be better?
