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

My friend and I chose this place for a small celebration dinner. Reservations was easy via their website. The restaurant had a relaxing ambience and the service was quite good.
We started off with some beer (happy hour), truffle fries and squid rings. For entrées, we chose the cereal crusted cod and mushroom stack with polenta. The cod was done to perfection but the polenta was decidedly too heavy and oily.
It's a god thing we left some room for desserts. Their creme brûlée and molten chocolate cake were simply divine, accompanied with good, strong Vittoria coffee. In all, we spent about S$70 per person.

The one and only best Lychee Saketini Oysters! nice combination and it was refreshing. The oysters were fresh that makes it even more appealing and tasty!

The main courses tastes delicious with nice culinary art to the presentation. Unfortunately, one can only have so much in a day...will definitely be back again to try other main dishes.

Great job to the team for the great service!

A friend and I spent a very pleasant few hours here eating, drinking, eating some more and chatting. When we left, we had no idea how late it was, which must be a testament to how relaxed we both felt.
The location of Skyve is interesting, near Newton Circus, but not near any other restaurants. If you go, watch out for the sign with the Skyve name, otherwise you may miss it. I think the premises used to be a school, so there is a kind of industrial space vibe going on, which I liked, but if you are looking for romantic and intimate, this is not the place.

There are some really good things about Skyve and the best thing is probably their flexibility. The menu is varied and includes lots of a la carte items as well as a well priced set lunch. We ended up going a la carte, but there were some tempting choices on the set lunch as well. We shared a Caesar salad with Parma ham then I chose the truffle pasta and my dining companion had the Kurobuta pork collar. Mine was delicious, although the sauce could have been more truffley, and my companion seemed very pleased with his choice. We had chosen to go BYO, although the restaurant has a good wine list, with lots of well-priced (for Singapore) bottles. CK, who was looking after us, did a great job with decanting and serving our wine, in fact he did a great job full stop. Although there was no cheese course offered on the lunch menu, he created one for us to share, with freshly made flat bread. We also shared a chocolate brownie with cherry compote for dessert. It was just delicious.
Can't wait to go again!

Our food was excellent, service great, and location really pleasant, but mains were quite pricey, and for example, a very small capuccino cost 6 SGD.
