“Unbeatable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

Another dinner last night reconfirmed: What the chef Julian, and the service team, Catherine, Frank and others, achieve continues to be unmatched in Singapore. Also, Jaan is a place where you can go every couple of months and the menu changes, with season and availability of ingredients. Don't miss Jaan on your travels to Singapore.

“A restaurant strictly for gourmandes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

A restaurant for those who wish only the newest and most imaginative of eating experiences. You will be offered one of three fixed price meals: 5 courses, 7 courses, or 10 courses. Everyone at the table must order the same meal. Prices range from $200 per person and up, not including wine, tax, or tip. Service is superb and the food preparation is extraordinary. But it would be nice to have some choices and at least a few wine choices for less than $100 per bottle (there were about a half dozen out of well over 100 wines). Definitely not for the average person who wants a very nice meal at a reasonable price. An experience not attuned for mere humans.

“Like the best restaurants in Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

What can I say ? It was a terrific French night out !
The food is delicious. The presentation is fantastic. The staff is perfect (experienced AND friendly).
To give one example: we had a dish called "ocean". It was arranged in form of a wave (consisting of seafood, fish and vegetables in different textures from raw over poached to grilled) - a pleasure to taste.
We had the best pigeon ever (cooked in hay).
Closing my eyes I would not have been able to differentiate between Jaan and the best restaurants in Paris. Opening them I would, because there is no view like that in Paris.
One small negative issue: the wine prices are pure horror for Europeans and mainly focussed on labels...

“Simply fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

We had lunch at Jaan (this was our second time) and chose a 3 course lunch. The sommelier chose some very good champagne and wine for us.
The 3 course lunch consisted of 8 (if we counted correct) different dishes all in all. I have been to a few Michelin-rated restaurants in Europe, but in my opinion the food at Jaan is much better than in any of them.
The dishes were symphonies of taste, and artwork to look at. Simply fantastic.
And with a 70th floor window table looking out over Marina Bay Sands and the Gardens by the Bay, the settings could hardly be better.
Highly recommended.

“Best restaurant in Singapore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

Having been in Singapore for a week on business I spent my last day having lunch at Jaan- what a way to end my trip! During my stay I ate at a number of fine dining restaurants and this was the best by far. I have some dietary restrictions (no pork or seafood) and so I opted for the five course vegetarian degustation menu which became 9 courses if you include the amuse bouche, lentil hummus with wafer lavosh, hors d'oeuvres and pre-dessert. My favourite dish was the beetroot and burrata salad containing many different types and consistences of beetroot (jelly, gelato, gel, sliced, wedge, puree) with burrata, raspberries and a honey cheese- this was perfection on a plate. I do not have a negative thing to say about Jaan... Service, food and the views are great. Highly recommended.
