Restaurant is closed for business. No re opening date or what soever on the door. It even looks like all the tables and chairs are not anymore in the restaurant. It won't open for good anymore

Unbelievably poor service, 40 mins for a glass of wine. 1hr+ to receive our mains and the restaurant was only a third full. Food was ordinary, nothing special, although the prices were not reflective of the standard of the food. Should be substantially cheaper given...More

We were dragged out after a first morning of exploring Singapore. Absinthe was just the right stop! Not inexpensive, but the fixed price lunch was well priced for what we got. Particularly delicious mushroom soup. The rose wine was very nice.

The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will
take you through the three Quays of the city, each
offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay
features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront
vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while
Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer.
Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a
peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the
