Oriole Cafe & Bar, Singapore…it disappoints

Oriole Cafe & Bar disappoints. In an age where cafes are trying very hard to build customer loyalty and get people to hang out at their outlets, Oriole Cafe seems to think that it is not really worth it.

We’d called up to make a reservation for lunch for a table for 5 informing them to allocate a nice table as we were entertaining some important guests. Their idea of a nice table for important guests is the one that’s got shelled by Gadaffi in Libya…one to which I am averse. The tired-looking sofa seat was in desperate need of a facelift –  worn, torn and soiled as if it has been a playground for their pets.  You’d think that’s the last seat they would give a customer, but no, this is the one reserved for me and my important guests. This must really be a special seats for VIPs because it took a lot of persuasion by us to be allocated a different table, even when the restaurant was obviously not that busy that afternoon.

The food was not too bad, but not good enough to counteract the shortcomings of the staff with a “I don’t give a damn” attitude. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
