Singapore restaurant REVIEW:
Winestone

    Winestone

Among the nascent Stevens Road lifestyle enclave’s many F&B options, Winestone is probably the most inviting (with its warm hues and floor-to-ceiling tinted glass windows) and the one we’ll all likely keep going back to.

It’s akin to why many default to Wine Connection (and places like Five Bar) for our after-work sesh—you know you’re gonna have a decent time there given the relatively affordable drinks, and the food, while not great, is palatable and filling. You’ll head to Winestone for similar reasons too. But once you’re there, you’ll find that it differs in several good ways.

For one, they’ve taken the easy-chill factor that draws us to such places to the next level with menu items like the Winestone Express Platter ($22)—a board of jamon iberico, chorizo, brie and tomme cheeses, olives and focaccia accompanied with glass of house pour wine (yes, the price is inclusive of the wine). This seemingly innocuous thing is made for the fuss-free individual in mind and it works.

The Mediterranean cuisine focus also means you won’t see the usual boring tummy fillers. There are starters like lebanese bread with hummus ($8) and battered whitebait ($12) for something light, as well as a bar bites menu (starts after 10pm) of truffle parmesan fries ($12), soft grilled tacos ($14) and spiced meatballs ($14) to keep you ordering more all night.

For mains, expect a choice of seafoods and meats. The spiced mackerel with couscous ($28), sea bass with prawns ($26) and ribeye steak ($52) are the go-to orders, but if you’re feeling luxe, there’s always the grain-fed beef tenderloin served with foie gras ($87) that will not disappoint.

With a name like Winestone, you can be assured that there’s a sizable wine selection here to choose from. There’s a modest choice of house whites and reds ranging from $10-$16 by the glass, while bottles start from $48. Those looking for beers and cocktails won’t need to feel left out with the decently-stocked bar being able to serve up the usual labels and classics.
