The Lighthouse

Restaurant Week

Lighthouse was one of the restaurants that K wanted and we were lucky to be able to get most of the places that we wanted to dine at.

I like the simplicity of Lighthouse. The white theme fits my expectation of a perfect lunch place.

Our reservation was at 230 but Lighthouse called me in the morning and told us the last order was at 2pm. So we tried our best to rush there but only got there around 215. Once we were seated, we were served immediately.

The whole meal felt really rushed. The starter came before the bread did.

Cappon Magro di pesci al basilico
Marinated seafood salad with crispy seasonal vegetable on cream bread and basil dressing

The taste of raw veggie and the sweetness of seafood is a good combination. Definitely a good way to start your meal.

The assortment of bread was average and it wasn't warm

Pici saltati in ragu'd'oca con le briciole e spinaci
Homemade pici in wine and spices braised duck ragout with wilted spinach and aromatic crumbs

Super filling main course! We could hardly finish everything. I supposed this dish is fine as a lunch item, but I would be disappointed if it came for a dinner course.

Dessert was supposed to be classic Venetian styled tiramisu but we were served brownies instead. We were not informed that the dessert had been changed.

Was looking forward to their tiramisu but the brownie was a good replacement. I like how it was subtly moist and chewy on the inside. Thats how I like my brownies to be. But still cant help but wonder how good their tiramisu would be.

We did not have a choice in any of the three courses. It'd be nice if they had offered a selection.

Overall, I like the ambience of the Lighthouse. The white interior under the afternoon sun-rays is quite a sight to behold. Not to mention, it comes with an unobstructed view of the entire marina area.The food was pretty decent but I was more captivated by the place itself. A recommended place for a good laid back lunch.

Total cost : $94+

EDITED BY K
Here's something that happened at The Lighthouse that sent both of us bursting into laughter. When we were leaving the restaurant, we entered the private lift and the door closed. So X asked me how many levels are there in Fullerton. Being a really poor judge of height, I said something like "I don't know? Twenty levels?" HAHAHA and X was like"?!?!? How can Fullerton be 20 levels? There's only 8 levels!" And I replied "Oh, is it. Then why is it that we're in the lift for so long and haven't reached yet?" And thats when we both looked at the panel of buttons on the lift and realised that I didn't press 8. HAHAHAHAH and we both burst out laughing. Can you imagine the receptionist dying of laughter because she could hear whatever we were saying. Haha

Hope this made your day better [:
