The White Rabbit is a charming restaurant and bar housed in a restored 1930s chapel set upon the iconic Dempsey Hill in Singapore. One can admire the beauty of the exquisite stained glasses while having your meal on the rustic tables and classic benches, or choose to sit outdoors overlooking the lovely garden veranda. The menu is a tribute to classic European cuisine, taken to new heights with sumptuous ingredients and finesse. A selection of bespoke cocktails is available in the garden bar The Rabbit Hole. Since its opening, The White Rabbit has garnered acclaim for its excellent food, wine expertise and impeccable service. With a regular clientele and an immensely popular weekend brunch, The White Rabbit has been featured in various international publications like Asia Wall Street Journal, Elle, and is listed as one of Tatler's Best Restaurants.

Back at White Rabbit with 2 birthday gals for lunch. Food plating was excellent, quality generally still good (pork belly was undercooked though), and service still excellent. Loved the hot rolls and how the desserts of the birthday gals were plated with greetings. The gals were really pleased to have photos taken for them as well. All in a great... More

The set is beautiful but the service and food were mediocre for the price. Pork belly was under cooked.

Back to white rabbit for a business lunch, the food was delicious and the service is amazing! Both of us order 3 course set lunch at $42++. My starter is seared scallop which was cook to perfection. My main course is their famous short-ribs, I was told it was braised for more than 36 hours. Crispy on the first bite... More

Despite my thinking the food and service is fairly average at the White Rabbit, I’d still recommend it based solely on the ambience – it’s a cool building. I’ve been to the White Rabbit a few times; once in a small group of 3, another time in a larger group of 12. Both times I wasn’t blown away. First, with... More

Booked an evening at the White rabbit one day before for my wedding anniversary. It was difficult to find a place which had ambience, good food & allowed kids as I had 3 little boys. Surprisingly they allowed so I booked it. From arrival till the end. The place really entices you with a mixture of feelings. The ambience and... More

Booking for 2. Food was pleasant enough - just a huge rush as main course arrived as the starter plates were cleared away! Main course had leeks - with sand so not so good there! We watched several tables have 'bombe Alaska' - with the waitperson struggling to light the 'flambe' - either the liqueur was not warm enough or... More

Since The White Rabbit used to be a church, the venue is very well lit and has good lighting during brunch /lunch. The former church's mosaics together with the sun light gives a nice effect to the overall ambience. As for food, truffle Mac and cheese tops my list. I also like their warm spinach salad and Wagyu burger. I... More

Several years ago I enjoyed a wonderful cocktail in its gardens and was keen to get back to try it for dinner, particularly because the menu looks great. The setting remains striking--an old church, stained class windows, appropriate lighting--and as a gin drinker I was impressed by their gin selection and cocktails. But my overriding memory of White Rabbit is... More
