“Very good quality meal and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

We found this restaurant by accident while strolling around the food and beverage venues that fill the old army barrack buildings of Dempsey Hill. Beautifully decorated internally with warm colours and a very inviting team led by Praba in front of house. Not knowing what to expect the menu had drawn us in with a mixture of fish and meat dishes. The food was a fusion mix of east and west flavours. We sampled the steak tartare and artichoke salad starter and both had the Barramundi as a main. This was exquisite with a light Asian style broth poured over the crispy skinned and fleshy fish. A real find if a little on the pricey side with a a two course meal with no wine and only one beer and mineral water coming to around £75. The staff however were very attentive without being in our face. And we would recommend this restaurant if you want something different from the regular Chinese and Asian venues of Singapore dining.

“High Standards and Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

I came across Pamplemousse by accident whilst looking around Dempsey for somewhere different one lunchtime. The set lunch menu on display at the entrance looked interesting and good value, and so it turned out to be - indeed, surpassing expectations. Service was speedy, attentive and friendly.Definitely a place to return to.

“Consistently good and I keep going back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Rule number one...chef-owned restaurants need to succeed, therefore they cannot afford to fall behind in terms of food and service.
Rule number two...In Singapore where so much is "style over substance" break away and stick to serving good food and providing excellent service. Styles change and "The Crowd" can be fickle!
Rule number three ... You survive on your first customers...you make money from repeat customers.
Pamplemousse achieves my award as the best restaurant in Singapore for an intimate dinner or for a few close friends in an elegant surrounding. Food, service and decor is not fussy but then I HATE fussy. It's not cool, it's not hip but you can take your wife, date or your mother there and all will be happy!

Excellent restaurant. The food is delicious, you must try the Boeuf Bourguigon there...
I had barramundi which was also perfect.Nice desserts too.
Great service and very nice staff. Everything was perfect.

“Excellent value and consistently good in service and delivery of flavor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Had another good meal & experience in Pamplemousse. Have patronized this place for over a year and it had been consistently good in terms of service and flavor. It will continue to be our favorite dinning place , especially when we bring in our own wines .
