“Valentines Day Perfection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The most perfect setting for a romantic valentines meal. My partner can be a bit resistant on the “marketing machine” of special days, however when he launches himself into the sensational food at Rhubarb, he mysteriously ends up being quite content and happy to be celebrating - just as you want him to be!

This is our second dining at Rhubarb, and new dishes with new flavours just hits the palate in surprising ways. It is a very small intimate affair, with only 6 tables, diners make a night of it, so it feels something special. If your partner appreciates sensational food, then the Rhubarb experience, with good service, lovely calm atmosphere makes for a very relaxing evening / haven for any day of the week - especially after a somewhat busy day-to-day shuffle of Singapore life.

“Intimate and good attention to detail”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Owned and run by a conscientious and very capable Englishman - this place has lots of good things to offer.

We had the set menu for the evening for 4 people - on a Tues night - it was a handful of tables in a very intimate setting (about a dozen tables). Food was superb. There were ingredients I don't normally like but I appreciate that it is very well done. I don't like sweet flavours in starters and mains, but he made it work well and I actually liked what he produced. Beautifully presented as well.

Another recommendable place in Sing. On the higher end, so depending on the wine, can be about $S400 a person.

“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

As it was for a special occasion we decided to go for the 5-course set menu and it was superb. Special mention for the foie gras and the venison, very nicely prepared and accommodated. Based on advice we had the meal washed down with a Saint-Joseph an excellent Côte-Rôtie, reasonably priced for the quality it offered. Service was professional yet friendly. Definitely highly recommended.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

First time here ( just passing through for 3 nights) both myself and partner had seared fois gras to start then we had mains of Pigeon and John Dory, all food was superbly cooked with some lovely flavour combinations. A nice touch was chef coming out to serve the starters and adding a grating of horseradish, also coming front of house to thank people as they were leaving.
All of the staff were superb, a most enjoyable evening

“Top food and wine, fairly priced!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We had a reservation for six on a Saturday (last) night, we arrived just after 8:30pm and started with a half bottle of pinot noir. I can only say that the evening got better progressively. The foie gras was the best I have had, the fish was normal (have definitely had better Dory - maybe they should look into what fish they want to use). The beef, which everyone else on the table had, was the winner!
They have this oyster leaf preparation which isn't for the faint of heart!
For dessert, we tried pretty much everything on the menu and it was all above average.
When i compare this to Jaan, the portions are a lot better and the quality is definitely more competitive. So if view isn't your top priority (and food is), I'd highly recommend Rhubarb. 3 hours well spent & the total damage was around $1,200 for six.
