Been here quite a few times and enjoyed every time I visited. I tried the DB burger every time as that's what I crave before I came. Tried it's roast chicken for 2 as well. Tender and tasteful. Nice mix with vege and mushrooms. The bread selection before the meal is well appreciated. Another cool point: it has its own... More

Though the marquee and the celebrity chef say bistro - the size, decor, music, and food are reminiscent of Houlihan's or Bennigan's during their 80s heyday. Our table tried the following hackneyed dishes: shrimp cocktail, burger, ribeye with frites, and a house chop salad. The shrimp cocktail was good. As for the rest of our dinner, we could've saved a... More

Was here to celebrate an anniversary with my partner. I've been here a few times a couple of years(3-4 years) back and had relatively good experiences. My partner has never been so I thought DB would be a good idea. Boy was I wrong. First, the service. Terrible terrible service. The lady attending to our table seems like she hated... More

AS this bistro is in the mall, dress code is non-existent. Music was loud and not appropriate for bistro dining. Appetizers were very good (mushroom soup & pate de fois gras) Main course was ok, White pepper used on Salmon skin rather than black pepper. Coq au vin a bit stew-like with no veggies. Extra French fries were disappointing. White... More

Drinks and oysters at the bar. BTW they have a great happy hour deal is you are around between 3-6. Dinner was a table divided. The guys had burgers and beer and us ladies did the set menu. The burgers and beer were a hit. However, the highlight of the meal was my meal. I started with the kale Ceasar... More

Its nice chilling place for foods and drinks. It took us so long to finish the foods as it served in great portion. Loved their mocktail and you can consider of having raspberry mocktail if you prefer sour drinks but not too over

Tried their special DB burger which had Wagyu sirloin and foie gras added to the burger. Heavenly! This place is consistently good.

A great place to have lunch at a bistro owned by Daniel Boulder, a Michelin star chef of " Daniel" in Manhattan. Comfortable seating, prompt and courteous service combined with good, wholesome tasty food. The burger ordered was very tasty and the slow cooked pork belly with lentils and Savoy cabbage very good. A good choice of beers was available,... More

Once you get over eating in a shopping mall this is not a bad place.A fairly standard French bistro menu is quite pricey and the food is reasonably executed.Their idea of Bouillabaisse is risible and they really should take it off their menu.That said the Plateau de Fruits de Mer was ok with superb Cape Cod oysters aplenty but tasteless...

My wife and I enjoyed a beautiful lunch here during March. The French bistro style fit out was a perfect setting for lunch and then menu offered some classic French inspired dishes. First we shared tasting boards of pâté and meats with beautiful warm bread (gluten free bread prepared for my wife) with pickles and radish. We ordered a bottle... More

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
