Went for a very early dinner. we were unable to have the dinner menu so selected from the brunch menu. Service was very good, the food although simple was flavoursome and presented as one would expect. Nice place, not over the top but a good choice within the many amongst the MBS shoppiing mall.

This is not my first visit to DB Bistro at Marina Bay Sands. As usual, the food was great and the service excellent. My friend and I shared the signature DB burger, French Onion Soup and Saffron Tagliolini as the burger, whilst delicious, can be quite big if you eat it on your own.

Been here many times before and this place never disappoints. The service is very attentive, and the waitresses are very polite. Ambience is fantastic, just like the food served here. This time, we went for the original db burger, herb roasted organic chicken, french onion soup and ice cream for dessert. The soup was slightly salty for me so it's... More

I visit once a year and am never disappointed. The wonderfully light Gruyere profiteroles are complimentary and the Onion Soup , ah, perfection! The service is as close to perfect as you can get.

We had the Brunch Meal Set which comprises an appetizer, main course and dessert. The food were tasty and up to expectations. Service from the waitress (I forgot to ask for her name) was excellent as she constantly checked on how we are enjoying our food, and if we needed anything else. The only pity was that the food portion... More

See the photos to get an idea of how bad the standard has dropped. The medium Burger was almost raw - tasted like gung. The French fries weren't bad but not worth the price of a 'gourmet burger'. The asparagus starter is a rip-off - scrawny and dry. Will avoid it and go elsewhere. They took the pork chop (which... More

I chanced upon this bistro at the mbs and was impressed by the service. I was immediately seated served a great wine and they were attentive despite the crowd. The food itself was very good. I ordered the lobster sandwich and the thin crust pizza. They were tasty and fresh. Unfortunately I didn't get to try their famous burger. I... 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.
