It is a pleasure to dine at Absinthe as always; where the beautiful restaurant interior, warm service and kitchen team and of course, the food, completes the dining experience. Absinthe has recently changed their seasonal menu to the Summer menu and I had their Grilled Baby Octopus Salad with Avocado and Balsamic Dressing, Grilled King Prawn and Angel Hair Pasta... More

Had a corporate luncheon at Absinthe, and had the pleasure of enjoying the delicious food. Many thumbs up to the chef! Service was good, although the appetiser and main took quite long to prepare, which left our guests waiting rather long. But the good food and lovely dining area quite compensated for that. Special mention to the King Prawn with... More

I dined at Absinthe this week with a friend. The manager was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable of the food and great wine that was served. The food was spot on from the white asparagus with parma ham to the veal and the amazing cheese platter. Service was top class and the decor of the restaurant was very stylish ... a... More

Absinthe is one of my favourite restaurant in Singapore. It is situated beside Singapore river so you can have a pleasant walk before or after the dinner along the river. The ambience of the restaurant is cosy, comfortable and is ideal for couples or with friends. The menu is not long but comprehensive: it includes oyster, seafood, foie gras, poultry,... More

We had a corporate dinner event at Absinthe on 9 July and it was such a memorable experience for us as the host and our guests too. Every dishes from the soup - Lobster bisque, bread, entree - seared hokkaido scallops, mains - beef cheeks and black cod and the dessert Valrhona Choc Tart was superb! Bravo to Chef Francois!...

Tucked away amidst the hustle and bustle of Boat Quay, the restaurant transports you into a cosy setting once you step foot into its charming premises. Get a seat by the window for views of the Singapore river and skyline. Quintessentially French, the degustation and ala carte menu boasts classic dishes like Foie Gras, Duck Leg Confit and Cote de...

I have been to Absinthe so many times that I have lost count (be it work or pleasure, formal and informal dinners, New Year's Eve dinners and even birthdays and cocktail parties in their private "salon") and I will never tire of the attentive service, fabulous food, reasonably priced wines (by Singaporean standards) and great ambiance. I cannot wait to... More

I've been a regular at Absinthe from the day it opened on Bukhit Pasoh Road, to the current new location on Boat Quay, coming for dinner with my wife and daughter every week-end. Both locations are good, but I think the new one is better as the restaurant is now on 2 floors, allowing for smaller rooms instead of the... More

My most recent visit was with a large group of friends for a masterfully organised french lunch in one of the restaurant's large function room culminating above... More
