Another weekend find we discovered is UNA of Rochester Park where it serves Sunday Brunch Buffet (yes it’s only Sunday). As with many establishments serving buffet brunches, top up and you will get free flow cava and sangria.
Housed in the Natural Beauty of Rochester Park
Housed in the colonial bungalow of One Rochester, you are immediately greeted by lush greenery when you approach it. It is a wonderful al fresco setting that would appeal to any nature lover. The house is surrounded by a thick tropical foliage that is well organised without appearing too manicured.
The path into the restaurant is adorned with tropical greenery that is part of the Southern Ridges eco-system. It also provides ample shade for patrons to walk around to enjoy the greenery. For diners who are not that enamored by the al fresco, there is also ample seating in the air-conditioned area that looks into the veranda. A nice space for all types of patrons.
The interior of the restaurant is well furnished and immaculately organised. Well suited to hold events and parties, UNA’s interior is spacious and classy. We are also pleasantly surprised by the unassuming interior decor. It is comfortable and non-pretentious. A nice space for families as well as dates to imbibe in some free-flow alcohol.
Free-flowing Decadence of Alcohol, Seafood and Grills in Rochester Park
A sunny Sunday is the best time to enjoy free flowing red wine sangria amongst the natural beauty in Rochester park’s UNA. Paired with its freshly grilled meats and fresh seafoods, the glasses of sangria that we had, made for a great afternoon of merry-making.
The oysters were very fresh and plump, much to the joy of seafood lovers. We had quite a few between us and having them with our sangria made quite a good pairing experience.
The fresh grills that you can order cooked a la minute in UNA is a definite draw of the place. Most of them are of rather good quality cuts as well so make sure you save space for them.
Tapas Selection for the Spanish Foodies
Surprisingly for a place that offers fresh seafood and grills, the tapas selection is quite extensive (check out UNA’s menu here).
If the fresh seafoods and grills are not your cup of tea, there is always the tapas to satiate your hunger. These tapas are also perfect for the young ones while parents can imbibe and indulge in UNA’s heartier options and raw food options.
Parking is also readily available at the open air car-park in front of the restaurant or at the condominium nearby.
Quality of food/drinks: 6.5/10
Value for money: 7/10
