Initially known for their Mediterranean fare, Winestone has recently refreshed their menu to inject a Modern-European twist. The new menu is reimagined and uplifted with 15 new
items, crafted and created by Chef Eugene Li, the newly appointed head chef of Winestone, and his team. Chef Eugene has over 10 years of culinary experience, having earn his stripes at restaurants such as Joel Robuchon, Black Bird Bar & Grill, Brisbane Australia, and Dempsey Cookhouse, Singapore.

Over the past year, the passionate culinary team continuously fine-tuned the signature hearty Winestone dishes, while experimenting on new recipes to satisfy guest palates. The new menu includes an array of appetisers, dishes from the farm, dishes from the sea, a taste of Italy and signature burgers.

This was my first time dining at Winestone and their Mediterranean signatures like the homemade Lebanese bread and Fattoush salad didn’t disappoint. Mediterranean cuisines are known for their selection of freshly baked breads, relying on a natural mix of nuts, fruits and greens to present a colourful plate. On this note, Winestone’s starters ticked all the right boxes.

The pasta dishes are not typical of Mediterranean themed restaurants, but were delectable additions to give a wider selection to the Modern-European menu concept. Both pasta dishes were reasonably good and taste of homemade goodness with the right texture and flavours.

For the mains, the tenderloin serving was huge for a half-serving. The full 250g should be enough for sharing for two pax for lighter eaters if you find the $87 price tag a tad steep. Having a slab of prime steak served together with a slice of foie gras on top is downright decadent and a sinful indulgence I wouldn’t mind digging into. For a healthier, lighter alternative, there are pan-seared cod fish and turbot fish alternatives.

For those who like to drink while savouring your meal, the restaurant offers a large selection of affordable wines which the wait staff would be able to recommend and pair for your dining enjoyment.
