This is a very good restaurant in a very chic shopping mall. Yes it's also a expensive. Luckily the wines were half price so we could choose a very expensive Chablis without suffering the price! Excellent desserts and very good service

Fine food, great wine choices & attentive staff - a great combination for a pleasant dining experience. The seafood was sumptuously fresh & attractively presented. Baked Alaska for dessert was delicious...

So i have been here a few times and it has its highs and lows. The food has been good but not over the top memorable. I have had the kale cesear salad which is very good. The meats have been a little bit too much for me which I could imagine being very good for my other male companions.... More

The food was excellent, staff were attentive & the wine (a Bordeaux) a great choice. Baked Alaska for dessert was blissfully sinful.

This one had a lot of hype. Although the burgers were really nice, it was certainly not worth its cost. Service was average and not sophisticated at all for such an establishment.

Atmosphere was excellent given the fine service staff pays much attention to details. Seared foie gras, DB Burger and crepes worked out to be better than expected. Will be back for fresh oysters, they look yummy!

Decent wine list, food is good and service was OK. Definitely worth a visit whilst in Singapore. Gets a lot of the theatre crowd so this restaurant gets busy. Needs more work to get to the London outposts standards tho. Better to go to St Pierre in Sentosa for that sort of quality.

When we are in Singapore we always put db Bistro on our menu, pardon the pun, for dinner. We were recently in Singapore and again dined at db Bistro, simply put, Staff are very friendly and efficient, even remembering us. The food is consistently superb!! Would definitely recommend putting them on your dinning list.

What to do when you're 6,000 miles from home and you're hankering for a burger and fries? Chef Daniel Boulud has it covered with impeccable service, expansive wine list, tasty pom frites and the best burgers in Singapore.

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.
