I go there everyday for Lunch when I visit Singapore every lunch. Not nouvelle cuisine, quality French food with good taste and confortable atmosphere. A great location with also a beautiful terrasse overlooking the water and the Fullerton hotel in the background. Friendly service with staff knowing their job very well. A great and friendly Manager Vincent... la Classe!

After walking along crowded Boat Quay on a Friday evening, my wife and I were pleasantly surprised to find the area outside the restaurant to be relatively quiet. The restaurant is on the 2nd level, there was only one other couple there, and very quiet, which was great for us. We find the ambience of the restaurant very pleasant, cozy... More

We stumbled on this restaurant when we were walking around looking for a dinner venue and I am glad we discovered this restaurant. We sat outdoors as the weather was pleasant and the view over the river beautiful. The services was outstanding and head waiter Mario was fabulous. He was always there when you needed and friendly. The food was... More

The restaurant looks really fancy - waiters are all dressed up and the decor suggests top level dining. Unfortunately the food quality was a bit disappointing. Maybe because it was late (we were the last guests), but maybe it's just what it is. Oysters & Champagne with river view were a great start, but the main course was disappointing -... More

The food was really good, and the staff was able to make excellent recommendations. We had the pan-fried foie gras, mushroom soup and lobster bisque, wild mushroom risotto, seabass, wagyu beef cheeks, and striploin. Desserts of banana crumble and souffle were also very good! Definitely will come back again!

Staying in The Quays

Neighborhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
