Very good, but could be better

First, don't be put off by the fact it is in a shopping mall. OK - so it's not the same atmosphere as the NYC one, but it's a lot better than it could be. I have now been quite a few times and am rarely disappointed with the food. However, I was quite disappointed with the fries. If you'... read more

Fantastic French food, the pate was to die for, the lamb was fabulous & the poached pear was outstanding - yum. Wish there was something like this in Brisbane

Had a dinner there on the last day of our Malay-SG trip in late Jan/early Feb with my wife and 5-year-old son. Very classy but relaxed atmosphere with very friendly waitresses. Food was excellent and the highlight must went to the desserts. The durian soufflé with mangosteen sorbet (king and queen of fruits) was to die for.

We've eaten here several times now, this restaurant is great value with the option of a set price three course lunch menu. Wonderful food, good selection of wines. Be sure to reserve as it's busy at lunch time.

Arrived earlier than booked time. Got 2 phone calls while I was eating from the restaurant as they were checking on my reservations! Food was great. Had black truffle fois gras terrine, Louisane Gumbo, which were 2 specials for the day. Had no room for dessert. However, the waitress put down a plate of hot mini Madelines. That was a... More

The restaurant is taken place in the Marina Bay Sands and we found it by accident as we just walked around and wanted to have a nice dinner not far from our hotel (Marina Bay Sands). The price is okay and the food too, but for the money you sepnd, you are better off somewhere else in the city.

We had the fixed price three course menu including a glass of wine and complimentary bread. The food was good, not great and I don't think worth the price. However, the atmosphere and setting was like being in a Parisian bistro which was nice. I wouldn't pay those prices again though. My pasta bolognese was overly salted, and void of... More

My sister and I managed to get a table without making prior reservations. We decided to give db a try since we always frequent Mozza on our trips to Marina Bay Sands. We had the "wild mushroom soup" and "Boston lobster salad" for appetizers. Both were really good. We shared the "original db burger" which was excellent. Service was prompt... More

Although having made a reservation our party of three was shown to a small table which quite frankly was far too small! We ordered three dishes, namely the house burger, the seafood casserole and country pate. We informed the attentive staff that we would be sharing the dishes. However, they were all served at the same time and due to... More

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighborhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
