The food was perfect and each dish creatively involved “rhubarb”, which we found out was something that wistfully reminded the chef of his childhood. The egg dish was light yet flavourful, though I must say the dried salty prawns added a little too much salt to the taste. The foie gras dish was creative and tasty, the chocolate really adding a special tint to the meal. Chef Paul responded well to request of the steak being less rare, and adapted the request to the two meat dishes that we received. Dessert was another highlight, where there was a light-hearted coconut sorbet and the petit fours ended our meal perfectly, providing a perfect balance between a heavy/light meal. The wine pairings overall fit each course very well, and it is well understood by the end of the meal that the restaurant values quality.
While this place does not sit in a 5 star hotel or next to a Singaporean landmark, the food more than makes up for it, and honestly speaking outperforms other French restaurants in taste.
Overall, this place comes well-recommended and I encourage those ready for good French food and honest blunt service to dine here.

We had a three day stop over and we really struggled to find great food until on our last night we found rhubarb. This is fine dining at its best. The staff were great and the chef himself made you feel like he was there just to cook for you. Would highly recommend

A very cosy and elegant place with 7 tables only, I believe .
Superb menu where everything is tempting and can satisfy meat, fish and vegetable lovers.
The foie gras was very good, the wagyu beef too. Cooked to perfection, it was a delight.
Very nice professional wines list, with a great selection of French reds.
Service was excellent from the young lady to the maître d.
An very good meal indeed and a great team.
Well done guys!

Thankfully I was invited on a business dinner, which made the experience a little less disappointing. I was eagerly looking forward to try the food, having seen all the positive reviews online but perhaps this place is just past it's prime.
The restaurant was quite empty, so it was nice and quiet but the food was bland and nothing stood out particularly.

This restaurant has only 7 tables inside and I can safely say that their service is AMAZING!
They really go through details and explain all the dishes.
Moreover I particularly love the amuse bouche which is in the shape of a cone (very creative and cute too), loooove the foie gras, looove the emulsion (really thick, creamy and flavorful).
They also did a special request of mine which is to write "Happy Anniversary" which is truly nice of them.
I will definitely recommend this French restaurant to everyone!

Ps: they have very affordable lunch menu!
