We had the vacherin mont d'or stuffed with homemade chorizo with a side of potatoes, a delicious rich and hearty lamb stew, and the potato gratin. My boyfriend is a big eater but all of that filled us up to a food coma level. A very small, cute and romantic place. Staff are also very friendly! Would definitely recommend it... More

We loved it! The food was reminiscent of what we'd be enjoying on a fine spring day in French countryside. The crusty bread and pork rillette was marvellous. We loved the escargots and garbure, a vegetable soup with pork sausage but the absolute highlight of our appetisers was the vacherin mont dor - a pot of melted cheese with onions... More

This is a personal favourite of mine whenever I can gather a group of 4 or more meat lovers. The restaurant doesn't allow customers to wine but to be fair they have an impressive and very affordable wine list and Max the owner is happy to recommend a bottle which suits your taste and budget. The highlight is always the... More

The Rillette Bar upstairs at Le Bistrot du Sommelier is good spot for a glass of wine and a snack or a full bottle of wine and a meal. The decor is rustic and they specialise in rustic French rillettes and patés of duck, pork, rabbit, etc. They have quite a few warm dishes from a lamb cocotte with cheese... More

What worked against it was the high expectations of food quality and service - it wasn't bad, but certainly not great. Long time to wait for the food - close to or just over an hour.......and when it did arrive, was good, but not great, despite the increased hunger.

i went to le bistrot with high expectations having heard good reviews of it from friends. i was underwhelmed. the ambience was nice - cozy and quaint etc. i found the food just passable and service not up to scratch. food took forever to come and was nothing special given the wait and the cost (expensive). the waiter (who in...

I went to this place on a Monday night with friends. The frog legs were excellent. The cassoulet was solid without being exceptional. The wine was good. Service was attentive. It was busy for a quite Monday night. Solid and worth a visit.

I returned with a friend to this restaurant for the first time for a while and was very impressed. When making the reservation they sms'd us with details of items on the menu which required some time to order,in case we wanted to pre-order,which was a good idea. When we arrived they knew our preferences immediately,and also apologised for one... More

This is authentic French Bistro in the heart of Singapore. They have cleverly managed to create a lovely atmosphere serving delicious authentic food. The confit of duck is always a winner as are the frog legs and steak/frittes. They always have interesting and unusual french wines by the glass that enhance the food. Service is always with a smile.

Le bistrot du Sommelier is well located in a quiet street near to a car park: easy to park! The place offers both indoor and outdoor dining. The decor is simple but typical of french regional restaurant. Reminds me of the "bouchon" from Lyon. Staff is friendly and efficient. But the best is obviously the food and the selection of...
