My friend and I enjoyed our dinner evening at TXA. Reservation was made and I think we had a lovely time. Great, friendly service. Food was absolutely delish, esp the Iberico Pork Secreto. Drinks were fab. And to top it off, a complimentary birthday dessert....Kudos to the team!More

A beautiful setting and great live music. However, terrible food and shocking service! We had a table booked outside originally but as it was raining we were seated inside. It felt like a glorified canteen - which is somewhat of a surprise considering the beautiful...building the bar is set in. We were moved outside once the rain stopped which was much nicer. We had 7/8 dishes with none being very good. A couple were downright terrible - the croquettes were a particular low point tasting like a ball of gloop that was made much much earlier. One of our orders didn’t turn up. Service was slower than slow and very clumsy - having to repeat orders 4/5 times and ask for cutlery after our food had arrived are small but simple things. We were given a free whisky at the end of the meal which was nice. Beautiful building, great to hear a live band and the outdoor setting is beautiful but the food and service are a massive let down. Won’t be returningMore

A romantic night out, chilling in nature. Txa has a wonderful outdoor dining space, offering a close touch to nature. I do also love how the whole setting feels like a party space, with a bbq station in sight! Went on a Sunday night and...observed that there might be an event going on, as such was packed with people and staff were running around to serve the customers. Felt that txa might be a little understaffed when events are ongoing! Nevertheless, the food served was delicious despite the busy settings, which was a delight. I love the truffle flatbread, so generous in servings and bbq octopus was so tender and juicy! Met Hairul the bar manager, and I would say I am very impressed by the drinks he created! Tried a couple the taste was just 👍👍👍! (For interested might wanna c what’s in the secret menu if txa aint so busy 😜) Also met Ram, whom was very attentive and helpful to customer’s needs! I also enjoyed his sense of humour and positivity during our casual conversation. I think Txa has a very jovial and fun team, which makes the place feel livelier with their services. In overall, Txa will definitely be a place I’ll bring my family and friends to visit and chill at. Some suggestions for improvement will be implementing online ordering system? Since we can now scan qr to see the menu, if we can order through an online system, might be able to vacant staffs on hand and allow them to better serve customer’s needs, especially during peak periods. Otherwise, I’ll be back again, and looking forward to seeing new things up in the menu too!More

I went to TXA Gastrobar at Alkaff Mansion for their special Valentine's Dinner on the 14th Feb 2021. And it was awful. We paid approx $400 for 2 pax for a 3-course meal which was so not worth it. We were in the first seating...at 6 pm, so we arrived early at 5:50 pm, got greeted at the reception, they ticked our names off their list and then told us to go and wait outside and take photos and someone will call us when our table was ready. We waited 20 mins until noticed that something was wrong. So I asked one of the staff members if our table was ready and he apologised and said that it was ready. We sat down at 6:30 pm, but people around us were already sat down and waiting for their drinks/appetisers. Because we were sat down late, everything was delayed. From ordering, to our drinks and to our courses. We waited one hour for our main dish, it was ridiculous. I asked for a medium rare beef and it was so red it could've been rare, next time, get well-done instead! The first seating was supposed to end by 8 pm but we got served our dessert at 8:15 pm whilst staff were removing table cloths from other tables to get ready for the next seating. Once we finished our dessert we were immediately handed the bill - a reminder that it was $400 by the way - a signal for us to leave as the second seating was supposed to start at 8:30 pm. All the couples around us had such an awful time, you could feel how tense the atmosphere was. We were neglected from the beginning of the customer journey till the very end, and at our expense as well. I left a review on their automated email about our experience and got an email saying that they'd like to show us better by inviting us back to a complimentary meal. I'd rather get a refund or a discount because $400 is NO JOKE. Do not go here ESPECIALLY on special days like valentines day because it was so unorganised and you could tell no one knew what they were meant to do. Do not be tricked by the beautiful surroundings/aesthetics of the place, its not worth $400.More

Lovely location, especially outdoors but staff need some serious training. Usually had to ask 3 times for everything. Despite being quiet when we arrived it took 30 mins to get a glass of wine and even fries took 45 mins. Recommended wines were sold out,...staff couldn’t find a price for new suggestions and then struggled to remove a cork! Food was slow and sporadic and very average. Over-priced drinks too. Won’t be going back.More

Beautiful location and building. Fantastic and creative cocktails. Helpful and friendly staff. Despite two days of advance notice they were unable to create/adapt pintos/tapas dishes to be dairy free. As a result the menu was very restricted for my partner. However her burger was the...highlight of the meal. I selected various pintos and tapas. They were all extremely disappointing. For anyone who has been to Spain or indeed been to a decent spanish restaurant it was an extreme disappointment. The freshness and simplicity of Spanish food is the core strength. None of the food delivered this. Perhaps it was a mistake to go out for European food in Singapore when the Asian food is so fabulous and also good value. This was potentially a great venture but so inept beyond the gloss of a fine building. A huge shame.More
