Description: In Singapore cultural district, experience the quintessence of the modern French cuisine with award-winning Chef Gunther Hubrechsen. Gunther's food is down-to-earth - yet deftly executed to perfection with elegance and finesse. His gift lies in his ability to re-interpret classic dishes and flavours, breathing new life into them in terms of both taste and presentation.

Had a great lunch here, with superb service from the three senior stalwarts to the newish young server.

The food matched the service, and we enjoyed the truffled pasta and even the freshly baked little baguette. The Iberico pork jowl was fork tender and went well with the apple compote. If there was anything negative, it was that we wished the pork jowl was a slightly larger piece - it was that good.

The desserts of earl grey bavarios, as well as the slightly disconstructed apple pie, were lovely, especially with the Havana rum raisin ice cream. The petit fours and coffee were okay.

To celebrate an April birthday we would usually lunch at Gunthers. However, we had to do a takeaway this year due to the covid-19 circuit breaker. Nevertheless our small party of 3 had a lovely lunch comprising cote de boeuf complete with trimmings including a lovely stuffed zucchini flower. Chef was also willing to provide off menu items we requested comprising alaskan king crab salad and onion tart. Portions were generous so we had enough for our dinner too.

I would certainly not hesitate to use the takeaway service again since the food was delicious & suitable for takeaway - they kept well during the short ride home. Price is also very competitive and I would encourage anyone curious to try Chef Gunthers' dishes not to hesitate to try them at this time.

Amidst all the corona dismay, we went to Gunthers place for a anniversary celebration. The degustation menu was exquisite, one gastronomical delight after another.
The staff is very friendly and certainly up to the high standards. Free corkage is a valuable asset. We finished the degustation with a fine Irish coffee presented for us in the traditional way.
Gunther is a former Ostend citizen like us, but that is not why we hold him in such high esteem. It is for his very refined cooking!

Firstly I must say I have always given Gunther's a 5 star rating for their food! Gunther's cooking is divine and his dishes (regardless of pricing) are exquisite and near perfection for me. Secondly, I have always liked the professional service of Jeffrey and Mathieu who most of the time serve us when we go. Their excellent service is another reason we ended up going quite regularly. On my most recent January dinner there, it was 4 of us (my hubby and me and my son in law and my daughter) but this dinner left us turned-off and not returning again. One of the reasons we supported Gunther's was also their their free byo policy of 2 bottles for 4 of us (or 1 bottle per 2 pax). On this occasion, 1 of our 2 bottles was off and downhill so we asked the Filipino waiter (don't know his name) if we could go to our car to get another spare bottle of wine we had in the car to replace the bottle we brought that was downhill and not drinkable. He was friendly and smiled but little did we expect him to charge us a full corkage for this replacement bottle! We were very unhappy when the bill came with full corkage charge of the 3rd replacement bottle since we only drank 2 bottles (the 3rd bottle to replace the spoilt wine). We felt this Filipino waiter lacked empathy and understanding and so we had a bad experience this occasion and won't return again. Somehow, we feel that Jeffrey or Mathieu would not have charged us this 3rd replacement bottle to offset the bad bottle but we can't guarantee that we will always be served by only these 2 gentlemen.

Recommended by a friend but ultimately a disappointment. We had the medium sized tasting menu and it was not up to expectations. Generally speaking the food seemed to be heavy on oil and butter and portion sizes were small at best. Thank goodness for the bread! The bread was good.
