Nice cosy place with quality food

Brought to this small place by my colleague for lunch as it was near office. The food was nice and the ambience good and cosy. The food was of a large portion and definitely value. The beef I ordered was of reasonable quality but probably due to the way the meat is being sliced, there is some... read more

I don't understand the positive reviews, perhaps this place has changed hands? The food was like a copy of good French food prepared by someone from a recipe with no idea of what to taste for or what was important in the preparation. The final dish presented was far below the average French restaurant in Singapore. The service was the... More

I went here to celebrate with some girlfriends and if you're looking for a place with quality, French home-style cooking, then this is it! Every dish was flavourful (some perhaps even a little too salty) but overall it was a great experience, with the dessert perhaps being even better than the mains!! Best souffle I have ever had, as well... More

I have dined at this restaurant on 2 previous occasions and have been favourably impressed by the good French cuisine and friendly service. However, my last visit was over a year ago and I was surprised and rather concerned after reading the few adverse reviews posted here. I have just visited the restaurant again earlier this week with my family... More

We decided to have dinner at Bistrot Du Sommelier after visiting the Peranakan Museum which is just a few doors away. We tried the Asparagus salad, which consisted of a mound of rocket leaves with chopped asparagus below and a pile of warm, crispy parmesan waffles with dollops of cream in between each layer. We also shared the rough country... More

I came across the restaurant when it was recommended as one of the places other chefs go to. I certainly was not disappointed even though I booked just 30mins beforehand and only one table was left. The decor upstairs was not particularly enticing and the tables were too narrow with couples kinda "sharing" a table. It would be better to... More

I have been to this restaurant for the 3rd and last time. Each time was a big disappointment! The selection of wines is very nice but no sommelier to help you out. What's the point then to name it bistrot du sommerlier? When it comes to food here also they have it all wrong: bad quality and systematic wrong cooking!... More

Since we often crave classic French, we’ve been coming to Bistrot du Sommelier for years. Although location has changed, quality hasn’t. For a recent lunch, we decided to sit in the casual-chic rillette bar (high tables, friendly for groups too) and started off, appropriately, with Duck Rillettes and Pork Terrine. Duck Rillettes were our favorite- texture just right, delicious flavor,... More

Family dinner last night. Started with Rillettes, terrines, pate etc and each chose a main course. Servings are he which offsets the sticker shock to some extent. Wine list moves up in price pretty quickly but some very good wines there.
