Lucky draws!

 The Glorious Winebar & Bistro was very disappointing. I am surprised it even deserves a michelin star for what its worth!  The service staff were incompetent, we had to keep asking for the wine menu! We went for the EUR65 per person for 4 courses menu! 

This restaurant menu is tricky! if you wish to do wine pairing, they add additional EUR45 per person so total of EUR110 per person for 4 courses menu with wine pairing!

BEWARE of the wine pairing menu!  (Undoubtedly NOT WORTH the money)
Ordering 2 bottles of wine wouldn't even cost me that much!

The good part was the young mallard duck, a highlight of the night! I even had 3 pellets in my duck! Its evidence of the duck was shot in the wild. Seated next to the Chef's station, witnessing every dish fly out the kitchen salamander was a real treat.

The bad part were the marinated sea bass with beetroots, that was bland and boring, and the desserts.

Will I return to this restaurant? No way.
