It is great French food, you will not be disappointed. The menu is a perfect selection of great French dishes, lots of favorites and the occasional left field option - nothing, and I really do mean nothing, will leave you disappointed.

Food was great. Started with the foie gras which was cooked perfectly and balanced well by the tartness of the cooked berries and thin piece of bread.

Continued to the steak which was seasoned so well that I barely touched the bearnaise that came with it. I had initially declared the steak too big to finish but ended up eating every bit!

Molten chocolate cake was good. While it could have been a little more molten, it was obvious that the quality of the chocolate was good.

Service was polite and excellent too. If I had but one complaint, it would be that the complimentary bread could've been warmer and softer.

Will definitely be back for more!

Had dinner at Absinthe last night. We had the degustation menu and the food was delicious and well prepared. My wife's fois gras was undercooked and had to go back, but that was the only problem we had. the rest of them were done to perfection. The wine list was not too long but pricy. In the end we settled for the house wine (both white and red) and enjoyed it. The service was professional and very friendly. Towards the end the chef came out to speak with the guests, which is a nice touch. The new location is really good and you can dine al fresco right by the river. Certainly a must try in Singapore!

Absinthe 2.0 has it nailed - the last location got it right but the amazing chef here and staff in the new location have it going so much better. Attention to detail hasn't been lost at all, as someone who spent several years living in France, the food is beyond delicious. The team make you feel super special no water what the location. Top tip, there's great seating by the river you need to ask for, or up on the top floor a small private balcony that's really romantic. Book it, you wont regret it!

I enjoyed my lunch experience at Absinthe very much. The food is delicious. I had a starter of avocado with prawns--definitely whets one's appetite., followed by a main dish of perfectly seared seabream. The dessert is so pretty--raspberry sorbet! I took a tour of the interior of the restaurant. Spread over 3 floors of the shophouse, each floor features a different colour theme. Nonetheless, the decor of all 3 floors remains very elegant & feminine!
