Description: Established since 2002 in the heart of historical Chinatown, Les Bouchons serves every Frenchman's favorite: steak frites. From authentic French entrecote, imported from Normandie, to giants "cotes de boeuf", the choice is wide and all meats are served with free-flow of home-cooked French fries made with specially imported French potatoes. Fridays and Saturdays, Les Bouchons adds on the menu it's second specialty: "couscous royal" with authentic grilled merguez! Comme la-bas, dis donc!

“Nice and cozy”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

This is by far the better location for Les Bouchons, the atmosphere is nice, small, not too brightly lit and the service is attentive and personal. Why can't ehy just transfer this to their Robertson Quay location?
A good steak with a free flow of fries, a good bottle of Pomerol for a truly acceptable price, what more can you expect? And this all at a price level that makes the Cut's, Mortons and Wooloomooloo look like overpriced and overrated venues (have been to all, love them and yes, their steak may be even better, but at what price?).

“Cosy Frenchlike bistro with affordable Steak Frites (free flow fries!)”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Made reservations at 7pm and when we arrived 20mins early, we were denied entry as they opened at 7pm. We hopped over to the nearby Tong Heng to grab some egg tarts and had a dessert to pass time. We were the first to arrive at 7pm but the place was quickly filled up by 8pm. It is a small restaurant that can perhaps sit maybe 18-20 people inside plus another 2-3 tables for al fresco dining. Crowd was consists mainly of expats. Reservations is recommended to avoid disappointment. The menu is rather limited but it was ok for us. We ordered escargots with garlic butter for starters. It was not bad but our standard were high as we had the experience of best escargots at a cosy restaurant at Montmartre in Paris.

I ordered the extra tender beef filiet and hubby the ribeye. It's a simple fare, steak served with yummy homemade fries (which are by the way free flow) and was served with garden salad topped with chopped walnuts. The salad dressing was not to our liking and the bread were hard. There are 4 selections of sauces (mayo, mustard, dijon mustard, béarnaise sauce) and horseradish for your steak and yes like many singaporean, we asked for chilli sauce too. We both like the extra tender beef filet better and yes, we will return again for just steak and fries.

Nearest MRT : Tanjong Pagar Station and another 10 mins walk. Near to Maxwell market that serves many yummy hawker food!

“Great steaks at non cut-throat prices.”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Les Bouchons serves excellent steaks and their prices are not sky-high. Having visited both the robertson quay and ann siang hill restaurants, I prefer the small and tiny one at ann siang. Weird? It's because it's somewhat typical of Paris restaurants, small and therefore cosy. Steak frites is the number 1 seller here and you can ask for more fries if it isn't enough! There's also a tray of sauces for your choice.

“Simple, good quality food on the River @Robertson Quay.”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

I ate dinner here last night. I was reluctant to try this place as there are some negative reviews around. My take is quite different. I was looking for a tender steak, decent fries and a bottle of wine on the river for my Birthday. These guys delivered well! The menu is simple with few options, the outdoor setting quiet, unlike Clarke Quay. If you looking for simple quality go try Les Bouchons!

“Superb food in a superb coz y environment”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

This place has everything we like: quality food, good wine, quality service and cozy stylish atmosphere. We like that the place is tiny, just 7 tables or so. The menu is short, but great. Itmis a steak house French restaurant and the steaks are melting in your mouth. They serve home made french fries that come as manyntimes you need them! The wine list is good, and the house wine is not that expensive and fits very well with offered food. The service is friendly and good. A great restaurant to enjoy while eating.
