This year, my lovely daughter brought me to Rhubarb at Duxton Hill for Mother Day’s luncheon. This is a rather decent, small and presentable restaurant; open kitchen with only 6-7 tables. We arrived for lunch and was serviced by Mr Pony-tail (didn’t get his name)...who was attentive, quick and friendly (loved his smile & professional humour). We selected the 3-course omakase set. I find the food here especially delicate, nice and exquisitely-presented. While the portion are small, it was just nice for us 2 slim ladies. Before our main course was out, we were treated with a good selection of small breads that were served hot and oh-so-yummy (my girl had 3 of these).More

Not such a great Michelin experience quite frankly. Premises don’t seem as polished as other high end restaurants. Service took a fair bit of time, and wasn’t quite as expected - staff just quickly told us the name of the dish and left. I mean...it really didn’t seem Michelin. As for the food, this wasn’t really to our liking. The scallop and passion fruit combination just seemed like a total mismatch. The lamb was actually really bad with a very weak sauce - this was the first time we left food on the plate at a Michelin restaurant. Thumbs up to the truffle and celeriac dish. Dessert was ok but actually felt really refreshing after what I would call a very mediocre meal.More

Superb Fine Dining Service and a delicate, cozy food presentation. Chef Paul will explain dish and ends in pouring the sauce, such elegance! The taste is superb with all of the flavour combination and texture in your mouth. Joseph assisted our dining experience and really...display professionalism and knowledge in the menu (ingredients, flavour etc)..More

We went to Rhubard for our 30th wedding anniversary. What a great experience! Food and wine were excellent. The service is awesome and even the chef takes the time to come to your table. At the end of the lunch, we even received a lovely...attention to mark our special event. Thank you to the Chef and the entire Team for such a memorable day!More

Amazing French cuisine with a contemporary twist. Every course was SO good and the details in the plating was impressive. I was pleasantly surprised with the burst of beautiful flavours with each bite. It was a symphony in my mouth. The service was impeccable and...we thoroughly enjoyed every thing that was set before us. What a lovely evening.More

Chef Paul was super friendly and talented! Service staff super smiley and friendly as well. Uncomplicated dishes with a lot of thought put into. Love the beef dish with licorice sauce.

I had looked forward to this for a while but in the end it was nothing special and a bit of a disappointment. The arrival was a bit shambolic and we were left just sitting in the dining room unattended for quite a time. The...amuse bouche was quite bland. The 1st starter of two prawns in a cucumber jelly was OK but the securing in place of the prawns using a blob ricotta was not a good idea as the prevalent taste was the cheese. The scallop starter with a white chocolate garnish was served by the Chef, Mr. Longworth who explained his rationale in using the chocolate. Sound reasoning, BUT the whole dish was overpowered by using a sliver of pickled onion as the container for the garnish. Hence all that was discernible was pickled onion. We ordered one of each of the mains. The pigeon was good, the fish was awful It was not fresh and had a strong fishy smell. The whole concept of a fish in a "soup" relies on some taste, there was none. I did point this out to Mr. Longworth and told him it was disappointing. The dessert was nothing special The wine chosen, on the recommendation of the sommelier, was Chateau Olivier Pessac-Leognan., 2001. It was bland and fairly tasteless but the real kicker was that there was lot of sediment, so much so that the server had to abandon the small remains of the bottle as our glasses were full of sediment. Poor storage maybe? A real kicker was that it was my partners birthday the following day and they piped a message and applied a candle to the petit fours plate, this was not a birthday gesture as I noticed everyone else got the same platter, minus the greeting. Service was odd in that there was no designated server for our table hence every single question was asked of us twice by two different servers. A disappointment and I feel I would be unlikely to return.More

Tastefully decorated restaurant in historical district of Singapore, which serves tastefully presented dishes too. Only available for dinner are set menus of 2 or 3 starters, mains and desserts. The taramasalata amuse bouches (not included) were delightful, following by simply divine prawns and salmon starters...and Japanese scallops or veal for the mains. Dinner for 3 plus aperitifs and one bottle of wine cost us S$602.More

A real treat for the family to dine at Rhubarb. The experience lived up to every expectation. The chef was kind enough prepare special variation for one of our picky eaters at the table. The pace and service were well coordinated with each serving; special...care for Covid safe dining. Loved all the dishes and presentation explains why Rhubarb remains a highly recommended fine dining experience in Singapore. Good selection of wines to complement the dining experience.More
