Fine-dining in Singapore

Post by Blue Sapphire » Sat, 29 Nov 2008 2:55 am

Whenever an occasion comes like my wedding anniversary or my husband and I just feel like having a romantic dinner out in style. We find ourselves wondering where to go to.

So many places to eat in Singapore. But where are the REAL classy fine-dining places?!

The Cliff at Sentosa has a Michelin star chef most times.
And I saw a hotel Singapore somthing or other hotel on Orchard road and they too have a Michelin star chef visiting.

Its the Hilton that had the Mich star chef for a few days hes gone now.

Cliff is a nice choice, for ambiance etc. food is OK, we like IGGYs, feels a bit like eating in a basement but food better than average, apart from that I have to admit I have not found a joint that's on par with some of the best in Europe which is understandable as we are not in Europe. Just as you will be hard pushed to find a ba kut tei joint in Europe that's on par with the ones in Malaysia.

Try Ristorante Da Valentino in the Bukit Timah area. A little, warm Italian eatery with down-home cooking served by an Italian family in Singapore. Reservations ABSOLUTELY required. Gets lively, but ironically, I find such places offer the most privacy when you have your little table for 2 tucked in a corner...

A few detailed reviews of mine...

Halia, still my favorite restaurant in Sing:

Jaan (not worth the price), Le Tonkin (so-so) and Chikuyotei (only if you're seriously into Japanese):
http://extra.world66.com/tag/gourmetsnob/5

Capsule reviews for a few places I've gone to recently:

* Aoki, Japanese restaurant run by the Les Amis group. Sushi lunches are excellent, just don't go for dinner unless it's on someone's expense account...
* Magma, solid German cuisine. Perfect place to go when hankering for big chunks o' pork and sauerkraut! Reasonably priced, and I'm looking forward to their Xmas dinners.
* Tavolo, Italian food by a Japanese chef -- works better than you'd think, but quality was a little uneven. Not cheap.

I just went to Indochine at the Asian Civilizations Museum. I thought it was a flashy dining area with crystal chandeliers at the indoor area. The outdoor area was very nice too with candles etc. Food is asian fusion and for sharing. I thought the food was excellent and I would remember it for that. Not a cheap place but worth it for the food quality compared to other places.

Le Pont de Vie

Post by trufflesfan » Tue, 03 Mar 2009 6:42 pm

I would heartily recommend Le Pont de Vie at 26 Kandahar Street in historic Kampong Glam. Located in a beautiful shop house, this restaurant serves fine cuisine and good wines and is not too pricey considering the quality. Staff are friendly and the whole place has a romantic flair. It is also a popular destination fro Valentine's day, anniversaries and romantic, I love you, birthdays.
