Large servings and tasty food

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.

So this is my second time in 4 days going to a casual restaurant with fine-dining prices. But this time round, because we had wine, I think it's not so bad. We started with some rillettes, which were ok. We shared 3 mains: the steak and fries (very nice!), the wild boar (good too) and the stuffed quail (also good).... More

This restaurant is very hard to book. But now I find a solution. I book the upstairs Rillet & Cheeze Bar instead. Yes, the seating is a bit different - on high stools and small bar tables but the feeling is more relaxed and casual. Only complaint is that they have the TV on with foodie programmes on over and...

Supposedly one of the better French restaurants in Sing - their prices suggest they think they are - they really are not. Staff not necessarily rude but fairly oblivious - you might expect in a bar here but not when paying premium prices. I was in the restaurant when it wasn't busy at all but I still had to wait...

Made a couple of visits in the last couple of weeks, following strong recommendations from (usually) smart friends. It is an interesting place with some earthy French fare (rillettes, saucissons, etc) as well as interesting cheeses, with some unusual, hard-to-find ones (you can also take-away all this stuff). The wine list is quite eclectic, if somewhat expensive, even by Singapore... More

My husband and I had dinner here tonight and were very disappointed. Starting with the service that was appalling, the staff were very casual for the price point and did not understand the menu or the wine, The head waiter poured the dregs of the bottle into my husbands glass after swilling the bottle to pick up the particulates at...

This is an oft mentioned restaurant, so we finally relented and booked a table. Oh boy! The food itself isn't bad nor is it particularly good BUT nothing really makes sense - very rustic dishes priced at contemporary prices, entire service staff giving the vibe of being more comfortable in a hawker centre than in any type of modern restaurant...

I recently visited for a Friday night dinner with my wife. I booked about 30mins in advance and there were only outside tables left. I would suggest sitting inside as it is Spore and it's hot and we sat next to a building site, although it was covered up and the work had stopped there was still something going on... More

We had the cheese appetiser and shared in our table of 4. The cheese was nice, smooth and goes will with the white wine infused into it. For mains, the ladies ordered the onglet and we had the lamb. Both were delicious and well prepared. Dessert was the Apple Sorbet (which tasted more like Prune) and the Profiteroles. Overall a... More

We went with great expectations as the first we went to this restaurant it was fantastic. Charcuterie was great, very delicious. Main course.....we were a table of four but had different tastes, limited choices of just a meal for 1, mostly meals for 2. Difficult if you were just a couple and didn't like the same thing could be a... More
