Located at the relatively quiet PARCO Marina Bay, Octa Hotel is a Japanese romanticized version of a Parisian café. It is filled with many pretty objects related to afternoon tea and these were on sale.
I like that the place is very quiet and peaceful, making it a wonderful place for some private get-togethers. Décor wise, it could be slightly feminine for some.
Vinleon and I ordered the High Tea Set (12.50++ SGD) which changes monthly. For this month, the High Tea Set includes the essential scones, savoury coppa sweet ham canapés, Parfait glace with raspberry jelly, Mini Éclair filled with custard cream flavoured with signature royal milk tea and a cup of Ceylon Tea or Coffee.
The high tea set is pretty ordinary and the food wasn’t particularly memorable. The parfait glace with raspberry jelly was very sweet and the scones were just okay. Nonetheless, if you fancy something light in the afternoon and your budget is within 15 SGD plus you are looking for somewhere quiet then Octa Hotel is for you.
