Busy and lively bistro atmosphere. Simple small tables without tablecloths, just as I like. And the most important: food. Everything was excellent: snails, duck leg confit, beef tartar and green apple sorbet, but favorite of all: frog legs. Their Chateauneuf-du-Pape wine was excellent and good value for money.

Came here as ex French dwellers and hoping for a bit of refined French cooking. Having found such excellent restaurants in Singapore as La Petite Cuisine, La Saveur and the French Market Stall we thought this must be good! No, not the case - it is over-rated, over priced and certainly very dated cooking. The main course choices are essentially... More

food is amazing from beginning to end, service is good but this restaurant is not the best for a romantic dinner as the tables are very close to each others and the atmosphere is more to friends/family gathering. Will come back soon with friends for the food, but not for a romantic occasion (then i would recommend Taratata Bistrot)

Yes, I'm back! Yes, I over-ate (again)! Yes, blood sausage! Yes! Yes! Yes! (Sometimes, one really doesn't need to use a hundred words to get the message across... Especially when the food here is soooooooooo good!)

For a table for 2 we had a selection if rillette which is what the restaurant is known for. Very typical French set up with close tables and very knowledgeable staff. Fun dining experience if you're tired of eating the usual everyday stuff.

Western food in Singapore is hit and miss but the food is probably the best thing about this place. Great portions, nicely presented but just really expensive. We are talking London prices and more and as one reviewer commented, about 4x the price of Paris. Starters were good but padded with a lot of generic salad greens instead of what... More

There are very few true European restaurants and even fewer excellent ones. And this has to be some of the best French food I have had ever, anywhere I have been to Le Bistrot du Sommelier many times over the years both at their old location and the current one on Armenian Street. It is true, the service can be... More

I have been to Le Bistrot du Sommelier for the second time this week. Both times we were a company of two. The first time, I was invited and the main item was the hot Vacherin... it was excellent but - together with some other high-cholesterol offerings (rilette) a serious test on the system. During my recent visit, we took... More

It had been some time since I'd eaten at Bistro du Sommelier and restaurants in Singapore tend to fluctuate wildly over a short period of time,so it was interesting to try it again.The meal exceeded expectations even though those expectations were high. The service,often a bugbear in Singapore especially since the government has tightened up on work permits in the... More
