we were disappointed with the food. we read so much good reviews, hence we decided to make our way down to try the food. well, the food was quite ok, not exceptionally delicious specially for the amount paid - the french onion soup had so much cheese that we were eating more cheese than the onions. the shrimp dish was a huge disappointment! just a few shrimp around the bowl. the serving grace was the service. the staff were attentive and friendly. but definitely won't be back again.

Small restaurant with a great French Brasserie feel. Our group of 6 got a terrific little table in the corner. The menu is classic French, superbly delivered. We ordered the $75++ set menu (which seemed to cover a significant number of the dishes on the a'la carte menu). Between 6 of us we covered most of the choices: both soups were great; the rabbit and frog leg entrees were enjoyed, the prawn bouquet was good - but seriously old school; the lamb, duck, and beef mains were all enjoyed; as were the crème brulee and chocolate lava.The service was attentive, but not overpowering, nice touch for the chef to come out at the end of the night.The wine list is good, albeit limited - although it is a small restaurant. Like everywhere in Singapore it is pricey. Only a couple of $100(ish) options, and then jumped up into the $200+. We found White and Red in our price range - and all were good wines.

Overall, a great place to eat. Food is excellent. Pointers to make it an excellent rating, is to have a full menu especially on a weekend. This is twice we went and they don't have various dishes on the menu. Another point to improve on is the serving portion of the Rabbit terrine. As this is quite a heavy dish, a smaller/thinner portion would make the dish more appetizing.

Came for dinner with my girlfriend to celebrate her birthday. We ordered the 4 course set dinner at $75++ per person. I had French Onion Soup which was significantly more flavourful than my friend's Crab Bisque. I also enjoyed my Foie Gras more than her Smoked Salmon with white asparagus. We ordered 1 serving of 3 kinds of cheese. The camembert was tasty, the Brillat Savarin tasting like yogurt was also nice but our favourite was the Roquefort. It was the best blue cheese I've ever tasted! Not pungent, it was full bodied, creamy and flavourful. I could eat it without the accompanying cracker, savouring it slowly in my mouth. All 3 are French soft cheeses. For mains, we had Tenderloin and Rack of Lamb. We were already pretty full after the cheese so had a hard time finishing the main courses. The beef was better than the lamb. We had Chocolate Lava for dessert. It was good but we would have appreciated it better if we weren't so full. The set was value for money. Wine pairing available at $65 per pax for every dish. It's really hard to find parking here and it's not accessible via train either. But I'll still go back again. The food's satisfying.

It is our second time here and it is even fantastic the second time around. Seafood soup is a good start. The Lamb and frog legs is a worth to try dish. Staff’s are very attentive and friendly.
