Winestone at Mercure on Stevens
Located conveniently next to the Novotel and Mercure Hotel on Stevens, Winestone is a quality restaurant experience certainly not to be missed. Not too far from the Orchard area and with public transportation relatively close, it is easy and convenient to get to. Winestone is a modern European restaurant with a big bar, quality wine and good drinks selection to choose from.
As we sit down with our water, our Docca bread starters came out. Docca is an Egyptian bread which we dipped with balsamic vinegar and spices. They are complimentary but try not to eat all of them in a hurry. We asked for some recommendations from the staff and were given a few dishes to try during our meal. So we put our fate in their hands and they certainly delivered.
The Winestone At The Mercure Hotel Dining Experience
One of our starters is the Citrus Norwegian Scampi ($SG24), which is a great way to start the meal. A salad dish, loaded with seafood goodies and is a great choice to share for 2 to 3 persons. As we are enjoying the delicious Scampi, the Fresh Squid ($SG20) comes out as well. With a light sauce, the squid is uncut, so you can chop up the pieces the way you see fit. Our favourite out of the seafood dishes, the Hokkaido Scallops ($SG32), an absolute pleasure to eat. The 3 of them came out very nicely plated and the garnish fit perfectly with the scallops.
When we moved to the mains, we decided to go for meat, a slight pivot from our seafood starters. We were not feeling it for pasta so we went for the meat option of the Beef tenderloin 250g ($SG87). This comes all cut up, served with steak sauce, the whole thing very easy to share. We ordered it medium cook and it came out just the way we wanted it. The meat was nice and lean so there was not too much fat on it, just the way I like it.
Another recommended dish is the Winestone Wagyu Burger ($SG27). One of the best ways to get to know a place is by trying their burgers, and this one was no exception. We shared the burger, and even though the meat was super thick (perfect for me, not so much for Thuymi) it was cooked medium-well and was exceptionally juicy.
As we are currently on a fairly strict diet, we did not try the desserts, but the table next to us ordered some and there were smiles all around. I wish I wasn’t eating healthy this month!
Winestone Drinks Menu
Thuymi decided to have one little Cocktail before we left and she chose “The Fish Sipper” ($SG20). This is a concoction of whiskey and aged rum with Campari, served with orange peel and fish skin. Did we mention how the drink is presented? Just look at the photo!
Truth be told, we may have already come here on the only day of the week they closed haha. So we were determined to give it another go and try out their menu. Winestone is perfect for either a romantic date night or a company lunch and worth a visit, especially if you live around the neighbourhood.
