“A well managed restaurant and overall good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Went for lunch. Set menu was good (a la carte is available too). Food was good, service excellent. All in all lunch is a good way to experience the place (albeit the portions are quite small).... dinner would be a lot more expensive.

“Great Gunther's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Came here for lunch and both the server and i knew exactly what i wanted to have - the lunch set with an extra order of their house special, the cold angel hair pasta with caviar, ha

Service was good and attentive, filling up our water glasses in a timely fashion. Their house wines by the glass didn't catch my eye so we skipped that. The bread was good. I was surprised there was no amuse bouche for such a high end restaurant

The cold pasta arrived and was expectedly delightful. Our lunch set starters were a prawn cocktail and my friend had the scrambled egg with smoked salmon. He seemed to like it and it was a big portion. My prawns however were tiny and chopped into smaller pieces

Our main of pork rib was well done. Dessert was a small half portion of a panna cotta - like dessert. It was my friend's birthday and they took out another ice cream cake dessert with a candle. Tea and coffee was single portion only and the petit fours were ok, also small portions

Overall not 3 michelin star wow, but good enough

“A STEAL from restaurant week 2013”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

Fine dining is all about details from the chief.I would say Gunther's got it.

We are lucky to get out table on e 2013 restaurant week.no complains even it is just lunch.

Start off with the cold angel hair pasta.I love the details that the chief's dedication for the pasta with chilled plate.While you eat, you can see the moist on the plate which is like the morning dew and with a taste of summer from the cherry tomato and iberio ham.

15-dollar-discounted foie gras.Totally a STEAL!!!so far it is the most impressive foie gras I ever had.it is crispy at the side and bottom.texture is almost like a thin layer of biscuit.Yet the meat is well done and not over cooked.Clever choice served it with lemonade n slight honey ( I guess).

Pork ribs are divine as well.Tender yet not too bony.Beyond words.

Of coz we love the 4 petite pastries.3 tiny pastries and 1 dark chocolate.yummy!With a choice of tea or coffee.

Chief has excellent eyes in finding the right ingredient to put this meal together.Applause!

“Food was the highlight!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

We visited with a couple friend of ours during the Singapore restaurant week.
The starter which was angel hair pasta with very tasty tomato and mozzarella was devine with a touch of truffle oil. This was followed by grilled tenderloin which was very tasty and succulent.
The best part was that if you buy a bottle of champagne or wine they will waive the corkage for your bottle.
The atmosphere was very mixed we had a big table celebrating a birthday, a table with their very young children and many couples.
The service was attentive without being intrusive.
I would go back again.

“Excellent for food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

Excellent food and service. The layout of the restaurant is interesting, segmented so that it's not noisy even though you are seated fairly close, still one is able to have a conversation without feeling like u need to shout. They have quite a lot of specials, it's very worthwhile to hear and ask about them, we ended up having 4 courses half from the menu, half specials. The angle hair pasta with carvier is excellent, it's their signature dish for good reason, the milk fed lamb out of this world! So tender, juicy... Perfect! Tenderloin was very very good. Usually I'm a little disappointed with beef/steaks in restaurants but not this one.mit was done perfectly and was simple but very tender and tender. We also had the white asparagus with truffle and razor clams with truffle. The dessert I had - e apple tart with rum and raisin ice cream was yummy, and not flaky, which I liked a lot. Also had melon with Spanish ham, that was a pedestrian comparedmtomthe rest of the excellent dishes. Service was fabulous. Staff were knowledgeable and friendly, so we got good advise and recommendations (wine too). And they will split a dish up into smaller portions for you to share so you get to try more! I didn't feel they came around too much, but what I loved was that they made us feel like old customers even though it was our first time there. Had a great dinner, they came wi a slice of fruit ice cream cake because it was a birthday dinner. Nice little touch. Would definitely go back again! Wanna try the squid dish that was a special, it sounded so good. But we had to choose, only have so much space before I'd have to roll myself out. Oh and they have free valet parking!
