“Make a reservation - you will not be disappointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Had a lovely meal for 2 on Friday night. Atmosphere was wonderful, not too noisy light at right level, service smooth and not over the top. Food was 1st class. Set menu was well balanced all the flavours came through and there was more than enough to feel full at the end of the evening. Wine was recommended by Nicolas and was a good accompaniment to the meal without breaking the bank. Cheese was best I have had in Singapore - well conditioned - a real treat. We will be going back. Cost was S$400 for 2 with wine and all the usual ++'s. If you are looking for a restaurant for a special night out, this should be on your list.

“Another of many fabulous meals at this gem of a restaurant ....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Just got back from dinner for 5 of us.

Very busy restaurant tonight, but great, highly responsive and knowledgable service as ever, and just delicious, original food using the best ingredients and cooked to perfection. And all for really very sensible prices.

Over the years and many visits I've had the very occasional average experience here - but only by Nicolas' exceptionally high usual standards. Almost invariably I have left with a beaming smile on my face. It's great to see the patron himself evidently cooking every dish for you in person.

Having experienced many more vaunted establishments around the world and wildly higher prices and inferior food and service I have no hesitation in recommending Nicolas to anyone looking for a wonderful evening of delicious food, service and ambience.

“An absolute must in Singapore. What? In South East Asia!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

Chef Nicolas cooks an array of delicious dishes which are reminiscent to 3 Michelin Star cuisine. It may look small but go through the degustation menu and you will be satisfied with quantity but especially the refined quality. Small and intimate, efficient and friendly service: it is amazing what Nicolas pulls of with 2 1/2 people in his kitchen. I highly recommend the Pelt risotto with goose liver and mushroom, the pigeon which melts in your mouth, the succulent king prawn, this menu is a summit......

“interesting mid range restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

Friday evening with reservation.
room and ambiance are cosy, well organized, giving enough room around the table.
for the price paid, the menu is quite interesting. Excellent mains : the meat we had (lamb and venison) was really outstanding. The starters were interesting and creative. The dessert is certainly a let down, but i had swapped for the cheese board which is truly exceptional for Singapore.
some minor downsides : we did not want the degustation menu which was the only one proposed "for the week end"; we were of course accomodated, but with the restriction that we were asked to have the same starters choice my wife and I ??? Service was a bit uncertain, maybe due to a beginner waiter. And as mentionned above, dessert will be disapointing for the sweet teeth...
