Lucky find as we strolled along Boat Quay. Good food and great service. A nice break from the constant barrage of hosts and hostesses inviting you to the restaurants along Boat Quay. We has the fixed menu with several courses for SGD $88. Reasonable value and left feeling good, and not overstuffed. Will try again since we didn't even get to try the absinthe.

You can find all the beautiful people hanging out there. Seems a new place to be. We found the food to be okay and the ambiance of the restaurant quite harsh. Won't go back.

Our first time, so we can't compare to the old location. Got a call on the day of dinner to reconfirm the time of our booking. Then received sms to advice where to park. When we arrived, we were greeted by smiling and friendly staff. Taken to 2nd floor dining area which at 7 pm was still empty. It was nice because our server could pay us full attention. We decided on the Absinthe menu. The carpaccio and lobster bisque was definitely the highlights. I loved the foie gras but hubby thought they were a tad too caramelised. Our mistake to order both pork dish for the mains as it was a bit overcooked and dry. We opted for one serving of cheese platter which the server will choose based on what he/she thinks you will prefer. We got Epoisses, Camembert and Blue Cheese, served with wafer and grapes. Coffee is included which came after our desserts of poached peaches.There was one particular big group of 6 who were a bit louder and showing off that they were big spenders. Thankfully they came about 45 minutes into our dinner. The chef came out to talk to them only. Overall, was a good experience, I will go there again.

I would have given Absinthe in the old location a much better review. The duck terrine was bland to Terrine of What, point. My Barramundi fillet arrived only to be whisked away because (assumption) my lunch companion"s steak wasn't ready. With my rose colored glasses firmly on I hoped that meant it would be moist and Barramundi perfection when it's successor made an appearance. It was none of the above, overcooked and dry without any redeeming sauce which would have been welcome relief. The chocolate tarts for dessert had an astonishing transformation en route from the kitchen, arriving as peach tarts. The service was friendly and pleasant and the correct tarts were delivered. Pretty bathroom but not enough to make us go back.
