The Loft – Bistro Seafood Pasta

Shop Front

Nestled in the rich  Paranakan heritage, Katong ( Joo Chiat Road & East Coast road) is the ”home” of Peranakan cuisine .

Katong, is a foodie haven. If you are a food lover, you would certainly heard of / a regular here . Different cuisines such as Thai , European, Italian, Filipino, Cantonese, Pernakan, Muslim…etc can be found in the whole stretch of Joo Chiat & East Coast Road.

The Loft ,a bistro offering European Seafood managed to attract my attention. Reason being- Fish & Seafood Lover! 

Chef’s Special




The Bistro interior was cosy, perhaps there were only 4 tables??? Not too sure whether there were additional tables at the back of the bistro.


Menu (Mains & Desserts )



The main courses ( Fish / Meat) allowed you to pick any 2 side dishes and a sauce of choice (Pica de gallo, Pesto, Hollandaise, Fruit Chutney & Henry Bain ) . They do offer a small selection of pasta but please enquire the availability.

Portions were rather huge and therefore you can share 2 main courses among 3 people ( if you are a small eater ).


Daily & Chef’s Specials 




The Daily & Chef’s Specials are not listed in the menu but are based on availability & Season. I was glad to see the prices listed without an extra +  =)

Monkfish Saltimboca ( $22+)



The Baked Monkfish (known as poorman’s lobster ) was baked with a slice of picnic ham in between and served with a generous serving of salad & olives vinaigrette.

The texture of the monkfish was slightly chewy and for those who prefer oily fish such as cod / salmon may not enjoy the light flavour of the monkfish. The picnic ham was … …  cos I generally prefer parma ham .

The bed of salad leaves had slices of gherkins , olives and corn which gave a tangy and refreshing finish.


Verdict: The prices were reasonable , portions were generous , service was friendly but the location was a little ”off ” for me  =( .
