Hi Tea at Museo @Quayside Isle, Sentosa Cove

My friends and I bought a Groupon deal ($35nett for weekend Hi tea at Museo U.P. $48++). Since there is only one seating (1.30pm - 5pm) for weekends, we made our reservation way back in Mar to secured seats. Museo is located at Quayside Isle at Sentosa Cove, not a very public transport friendly place but definitely a sanctuary away from the bustling city area. Arriving here immediately puts us in a relaxing and laid back holiday mood.

There are many international restaurants here that offers waterfront dining experience. Museo is located at the 2nd level above the Picotin bistro.

Entrance/lobby area with high ceiling...

Cool ceiling lighting 

Dining area at level 2.

Our table with waterfront view. It is the sofa type seat where diners take off their shoes and relax over a cup of tea/coffee...if you don't need to get up for food that is.

We initially find it cumbersome to get in and out to get our food from the buffet stations. But once our tummy are filled, it is really quite relaxing to laze and sip tea while enjoying the view outside...

The buffet spread...not a huge selection of food but food quality is very good. Their signature dish Roast pork belly (sio bak) gets snapped up pretty fast!

My food choices...I ate 3 rounds, all of them contains sio bak. The pork belly is roasted just right, has 2/3 lean meat and 1/3 fat plus super crispy skin....heavenly! Their fresh prawns and Cajun chicken chop are also very nice. If you eat beef, my friends are also raving about their roast beef dish.

For desserts, I had the mango mousse cake, green tea mousse cake, chocolate swiss rolls and cream puff. I liked the chocolate swiss roll and mango cake. For fruits, I had the rock melon and water melon...the rock melon is super sweet!

The highlight of this restaurant had to be their Arteastiq tea. I had one round of cold fruit tea and two rounds of hot tea and a cup of hot chocolate. Their hot beverages were really lovely :)

My drinks choices...

Drinks menu 

French rose tea...very fragrant!

Biscotti & sugar cubes accompanying the tea set 

Mint lemongrass tea...nice!

Hot chocolate...thumbs up!

Cold fruit tea...lychee & pear tea

My friend's order...

Chamomile mint tea

Lychee tea friend said it tasted like Kopi-gao.

This restaurant has outdoor dining area for people who need to breathe 'extra oxygen'.

Overall we really enjoyed the dining experience here. The service was good, prompt and friendly. Dishes were cleared regularly, ice water was refilled without asking. Food at buffet stations were replenished fast...especially for their popular dishes. The buffet price includes unlimited order of non alcoholic drinks. We find that it is really worth the price we paid.
