If you are preparing for a day out at Mandai Wildlife Reserve and looking for a dining place to fill your day with delectable delights, look no further than Caerus Holding, a distinguished F&B group known for introducing global culinary brands to Singapore, has introduced an extraordinary flagship restaurant experience at Mandai Wildlife West. Here, you can savour the culinary delights of Mr Holmes Bakehouse, Luke’s Lobster, and Leckerbaer, all under one roof for all to enjoy the entire day.
Vijay Pillai, Founder of Caerus Holding shared that “We’re very excited to open Caerus Holding’s first multi-experience location, featuring Mr. Holmes Bakehouse, Luke’s Lobster, and Leckerbaer under one roof. Mandai Wildlife West is the perfect location for this as our guests can enjoy all their favourite bakes, rolls, and desserts under one roof, as they visit each of the individual parks. With this opening, it sets the stage for us to open more such multi-experience concepts, allowing us to introduce our offerings to a wider audience on a larger scale.”
The cosy restaurant consists of 61 seats and has been meticulously crafted to accommodate a diverse range of patrons, all the while preserving the distinct character of each brand it houses. For example, the outdoor seating area evokes the ambiance of a charming lobster shack found along the Maine coastline. Additionally, the interior decor incorporates upcycled wood paneling and furnishings in a Scandinavian design motif, sourced from trees cleared during the Mandai construction process.
Furthermore, to ensure an enjoyable dining experience for families, the restaurant offers an adorable and comfortable children’s play zone, featuring beanbags, poufs, and a canopy that creates a delightful camping-like atmosphere.

Additionally, customers can relish the new Warm Lobster Roll ($25.50), which has quickly become a fan favourite. This tantalising roll is packed with 4 oz of lobster knuckle and claw meat, gently heated and seasoned with butter, a hint of lemon, and a sprinkle of Luke’s secret seasoning.
