After a long hiatus of not eating meat, we decided to go for a treat. Mostly because we were curious of what this new place has to offer.
Pleasantly happy that One Mont Kiara did its renovation and facelift. Many new stuff around, from H&M clothing to new restaurants, like the Barn.
What attracted me was the thought of having small plates (like tapas). That way we can sample a number of things rather than get stuck with something huge.
We sampled their tapas selection, they had different price ranges available.
Ambience was nice. As I walked around, I was impressed with the decor. Soon, I realized that the place is huge! Told hubby about the other sunken area which had a small stage (for live music), plus their walk-in wine chiller room. Wow, wow! This only means one thing: Mont Kiara residents like us don't have to go to Alexis in Ampang for some live music... And we can even walk to this place and drink a few glasses without worrying about driving back home!!! I'm sure tons of expats will think of the same thing. Glad they opened in the hood.
Food overall was okay. Service was also okay as waiters were new. Top favorite was the pizza which my daughter ordered.
Pork stuff -- okay, nothing out of this world.
Thoroughly enjoyed the eggplant and shrimp tapas we ordered. Oh, and also the squid rings.
Presentation and ambience -- two thumbs up!
Pricing is average -- not too expensive. I found La Bodega more pricey.
Overall-- will definitely come back to check out the rest of the stuff.
