♨ Marini's on 57

Marini's on 57 is one of KL premium sky bar 
where they have a Lounge, a Bar and a Dining place which serves fine dining cuisines
it is an Italian restaurant, with a master chef originated from Italy

we decided to hit a try one fine day
to celebrate my friend's birthday
it's a fine dining restaurant
and we were mentally and economically prepared to go there =D

We went there early, though we had a booking with the restaurant
(the dining place opens at 6pm+)
and so we were ushered to wait in the Marini's Bar
magnicificant view up there
KL Twin Towers look really near, and huge
not forgetting a first class KL skyline view here

oh, before we head into the main topic
i personally think that the elevator up is real cool
the elevator has real high ceiling
and it moves damn fast up 
amazing =D
(dont forget to swallow your saliva to keep your ears clear!)

I brilliantly deleted all my Marini's pic just because I thought I transferred them into hard disc
so that's why
I have limited pics here
*nah so sad =(*
i'd taken quite a lot of nice view up there!

and here's the bar =D
a happening one =D

Marini's Bar
 we had a look at the bar menu
it was okay though
tit bits price ranges from rm16-45
and pizza, around 6 or 8 slices (forgot the exact)
only cost rm30+ depending on what you ordered
that's fairly cheap for a venue like that

since we have to wait for 15min only
we didnt order anything from the bar 
(i will definitely go back to try!)

here's our balloon for my friend!
we happily bought the balloon from KLCC and brought it all the way to Marini's
and into the Bar
but when we enter the restaurant
our balloon was taken away cuz the restaurant supposed to be formal
and so, no balloons are allowed.
so people, don't bother to get balloons (or other funky stuffs) into the restaurant even though you want to celebrate your friend's birthday ;)

Hospitality was really good
first class service I can say
the only thing lacking is 
the waitress that served our table
can't speak english well
but she understands what we said though
so no big deal ;)

Deciding on drinks
 we ended up choosing Mojito (RM25+)
and it was really good
nice fresh and not to heavy for a female ;)

sunset was good here
lucky that we get to see a nice one
but I personally think that the view at the Bar is nicer
(probably because the view here has more construction sites!)

 breads were served on the house
and they were yummy
we asked for another basket of breads =P

here's our food!
Pasta di Lagsana con Melanzane e Mozzarella (RM98+)
complicated name huh =P
it's basically a lagsana with eggplant, tomato and basil
Comment : It's rather disappointing though
I don't know whether this is the authentic Italian taste
but it doesn't taste as good as we expected
the lagsana is a bit dry in general, nor enough "puree" kind of taste =(

Pasta di Lagsana con Melanzane e Mozzarella (RM98+)
and our next plate is Rissoto (RM108+)
with 24 carat edible gold leaves on top
quite special though

Rissoto con oro Parmaggiano e Balsamico (RM108+)
here comes our dessert 
Fondente con gelato all a vaniglia (around RM30+)
in short, it is a chocolate larva kind of cake
(70% pure valrhona melted choc with vanilla gelato, need 15min preparation time)
Valrhona : a French luxury choc manufacturer

the waiters are really helpful in bringing out the cake with candles for us
thanks for the great effort =D
they even hid it in a box! or rather to prevent the candles from being blown off by wind =P

Chocolate Larva Cake (around RM30+)
the best so far was the choc larva cake
it was really yummy
and the vanilla gelato is really vanilla-ish

lastly, we get to eat a whole cutey ball of cotton candy served on a plate (on the house)
everybody gets it =D
it's yummy
and really sweet =P

Cotton candy, on the house
so here's my overall review :

Ambience : 9/10
Service : 9/10
Food : 6.5/10
Price : High end

Marini's on 57
Level 57, Menara 3 Petronas
50088 Kuala Lumpur
+6(03) 2161 2880
(It's always better to make a reservation)
Tips : You can park your car in Mandarin Oriental or KLCC Shopping Mall car park and walk over.

Thank you for reading!

So I heard that they require a minimum spending of rm600, is it true?
