Description: "The breakfast/brunch at Skyve is tasty and very well executed and this is a restaurant with a carefully conceived and consistent concept because literally everything is created around the art of Skyvetronomy (i.e. skyving/skiving off) right down to the presentation of the menus and the setting which pays tribute to the location's former days as a school." -City Nomads "Located in a corner of the former Monk's Hill School premises, it is an intimate, glass-covered bistro with a bar lounge. Hugged by greenery, it is ideal for all meal times and casual afternoon tea, and offers the right mystique for evening chill-out and romantic dinners." -The Business Times "For some of the best ricotta pancakes in town, head to Skyve Wine Bistro where you'll find them served with passionfruit butter, roasted almond flakes, fresh banana slices, and lashings of maple syrup." -The Honeycombers

This is a lively bar & restaurant. Hip & trendy. The food was excellent and service very attentative. It's quite pricey and watch out for the 'busy rooting' service charge, which they added on top of GST & service charge. New to us!!

Dear Debbie,

Thank you very much for your kind words, and we appreciate your feedback. Please allow us to clarify that we only charge 10% service charge on top of prevailing government taxes. Would it be possible for you to drop us an email at enquiry@skyve.sg so we can assist to verify the charges on your bill? Look forward to hearing back from you, and hope you have a wonderful week ahead.

Comparing it to other places in SGP our group found it ok in terms of price, unlike the other reviewer. Food and drinks were a good mix In terms of price and offer. Friends and I went for the communal Sunday lunch and we found it good value with the drinks and the amount of time we spent there.

Went for dinner based on a friend's recommendation. Located a short walk from Newton MRT, it's close to Orchard Road, yet far from the crowds. Tables were available without reservation as the operating hours are 10am to late.

The atmosphere throughout our meal was peaceful and welcoming.There wasnt the rushed feeling that staff wanted you to eat quickly and leave so they could pack up and go home. Staff were attentive but not intrusive. Tables were cleared on tmely basis.

The bar area is partitioned off from the main dining area. With big oversized chairs, subdued lighting and background music,it was a great cozy nook to unwind, relax and catch up with friends.

What we tried:
Oysters - Au Natural, nice and fresh
Oysters - Japanese Style, fresh with a nice blend of flavours
Oysters - Skyvefella, cooked - oysters lost in the sauce
Egg Benedict - Nice blend of flavours and textures
Ocean Trout - Enjoyed the potato pave and herb fondue. Trout has crispy skin but was a tad dry on inside
Duck Leg Confit - Nice crisp duck legs. Again a tad try on the inside
Homemade ice cream - Served between 2 wafer slices with toppings of strawberry, caramelized apple and mini marshmellows. Yummy.
Ivory dome - Fantastic blend of flavours within the dome. Delicious.

Their desserts and appetizers better than their mains.

I agree with the previous reviewer that the chef is good. The food is imaginative and nicely done. Both my starter and fish main course were done extremely well. Wine cellar is also nicely curated; impressive selection of Bordeaux and some decent Italians, as well. My biggest gripe is the service. My server was quite friendly, but extremely erratic and knew very little about the food or the limited menu. Really detracted from a restaurant that is aimed at providing a memorable culinary experience.

Someone wrote a good review on this place having good brunch. Having had brunch at numerous places in Singapore and around the world.This has to be the worst. I do not expect anyone to charge >$20 for a main, and >$6 for coffee, if you can't do any better than I normally do at home. In terms of value for money, PS Cafe, Prive, Epicurious and many other local faves beat them hands down, and for that same price range. I definitely would not be coming back to this place again. What doesn't go well with a customer is poor quality food, even the presentation is sloppy, and a price that totally doesn't warrant that. They are in a nice location, so it is a shame that their food did not keep up with the place. District 10 which was previously in this same location was more deserving of this locale.
