Located at Vivo City, you find a spanish bar and restaurant - Serenity, with a mediterranean-style ambience. The live music with catchy Spanish tunes set the mood for dining. 

As highly recommended by their website, there are some must-tries. For instance, the tapas and soup, spanish rice, spanish noodle and Cochinillo - the Spanish style suckling pig. 

At Serenity, we ordered two tapas, one Spanish rice and a quarter size suckling pig. The total cost was around $240 for two. Personally, we feel that the food at the restaurant was over-rated.

Sepia a la Plancha en Aceite de Oliva Virgen (Grilled cuttlefish in extra virgin olive oil) was a nice appetiser. The cuttlefish was perfectly cooked. It was not overcooked. The cuttlefish was lightly salted with olive oil and topped with chilli powder. This dish is already $20.00. (Food Rating: 2.5/5)

Huevos Estrellados con Jamon ibéco (Smashed egg with ibéco)  was another interesting tapas. It was prepared with potatoes, bacon and smashed egg. The bacon added that tint of saltiness and the dish was good. This dish is already $20.00.(Food Rating: 2.5/5)

Spanish Suckling Pig (or cochinillo) is supposedly a roasted suckling pig. To me, it tasted as if it was deep fried. The meat was tender and juicy but the skin and fats were exceptionally oily. It became overbearing after a few mouthful of the skin. The quarter size of suckling pig cost around $100 and it was overrated. (Food Rating: 1.5/5)

Arroz al Horno (Pork Paella) is made from spring onion, onion, tomato, Spanish chorizo, pork ribs, potato, capsicum, rice. The rice was ok and nothing to crave for. This dish cost around $80. (Food Rating: 2/5)
