Spur of the moment gem.

Our group of 18 was wandering down the river and stopped at Absinthe to see if we could eat there. They quickly accommodated our needs with a long table on the river.

My wife and I know Singapore quite well and decided to try one of the restaurants down on the quay. We passed The Absinthe which we had read about on Trip Adviser and which had attracted quite good reviews. We decided to give it a go and I popped in to make a reservation for the following night. I speak... More

Our waiter was perfection to a t - offered advice when asked, appeared at my elbow when we needed someting or wanted to order. The foie gras was sublime, the whole fish we shared (taken off the bone by the chef at our table) was... More

Depending on your mood, you could dine alfresco at the water’s edge, but we prefer the cool upstairs dining rooms with their exposed brickwork, framed pages from La Mode Illustrée, white linen and soft lighting. Formal enough to feel like a special occasion, but not at all stuffy; ask for our corner table by the window.. Chef Maxim (from Le... More

An excellent way to spend a Saturday night, great French food in the open air, looking out at Singapore. Escargot were superb, Chateaubriand and Beef cheecks also very good. Very friendly service.

Good food, slightly pricey for a normal lunch but definitely a good value for money if you're looking for a nice place for lunch for a special date

"Magnifique!" - truly a marvellous French dining experience at Absinthe, and a very remarkable evening for me. From the reservation process to the welcome at the restaurant and on to a very attentive service experience in a simply gorgeous dining room, we truly enjoyed our memorable night at @ Absinthe. The location on Boat Key is very central and easy... More

Staying in The Quays

Neighborhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
