Good ambience; so so food

I have read about the White Rabbit from some magazines and decided to check it out. Went there for lunch and ordered their 3 course set lunch. Verdict: You come here for the ambience, not the food.

Food is good and well presented. Only small issue regarding the speed of service. The restaurant was being prepared for an event at night and we had to wait more than 30minutes everytime between courses.

This place is a great setting: the converted chapel is a lovely airy space but with plenty of detail and charm. In particular the semi-circular banquettes provide a very nice space to dine. The menu was fairly traditional but nonetheless very enticing. I chose the seared and smoked foie gras and duck breast to start. It was presented in a... More

A nice compliment to all the fabulous hawker food in Singapore, this fine dining restaurant is stunning as it a converted church with incredible stained glass windows and a refined atmosphere. The food was excellent, and the wine selection extensive - definitely worth a visit.

This restaurant is located in the converted chapel of the barracks at Dempsey hill, now all converted into interesting shops and restaurants and frequented by mainly an expat population. The restaurant itself is large and airy with comfortable banquette seating around the sides. The owners have retained enough of the ' old world' charm for the original architecture to shine... More

I invited a special guest to your restaurant and as it turned out I treated her to experience two courses that were served with live bugs on the the food. I did not even hear "I am sorry" from the staff. The rest of the experience was consistent. Embarrassment! No more need be said./

Decoration of the venue is very nice, but the food for me was disappointing, I've ordered for my main course a 60-hour Braised Mangalica Pork Belly which I was very excited about until it arrived and I cut a bit, turn out to be just very tiny little meat and the rest just fat. I ate quite a few pork... More

Magnificent setting within an old church sets the scene for a romantic evening. Whilst the food may not match the setting it is none the less a memorable venue and worth trying.
