“Worth it”
Reviewed 14 April 2012 via mobile

Lived here for a few years. Tried most good places. This is the best. The actual food was perfectly cooked and quality was the best.

Go there.

“Finest Parisian French Food”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

If you don't want to go to Paris for lunch, then you should go here.

“yes we love it”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

visited this great restaurant with friend mid of March I had to come back with my wife - and here we go - same great service, food, wine.
I am happy to give 5 points to a place which really is a high quality place - especially in all three points I mentioned - service (friendly and promt), food (fantastic) and wine (yes wine is expensive in Singapore - but here you get best value for your pocket).
Happy as soon as possible!

“When food is simply good”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

New restaurant, excellent menu, light, refined and delicious! It lacked a bit of atmosphere over lunch and the service while good was not at par with the food

“Place has changed, has been better really”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

I have been in Absynthe number of times, and use to spend significant amount on wines and others.
Waiters have changed and keeps pooring water in your glass, and ask you for what you wish to drink before you are even seated. I don't find the service elegant at all quite the opposite . If we are coming there we will spend money anyway so why adding unecessary and unpleasant manner to it, I am not qutie sure.
Food is still great though, and quality can't be discussed for this side. But you have quite a few restarant around with similar qualitites now, Angelus, Les Amis are some of them and I don't think I will go again very soon.
