Andre Wine & Dine

This unpretentious establishment serves up some good French fare in a casual environment. The good food comes courtesy of Executive Chef Steven Chan. Tuck into the premium French foie gras (100 percent corn fed), duck confit and Black Angus tenderloin, which all come at reasonable prices. No GST is charged here.

A small and low-key street frontage belies the trendy light-filled interior of this unpretentious French restaurant, previously named Andre (BYO) Restaurant. The setting inside remains the same mix of tasteful yet understated, making it the perfect setting for intimate meals after work or quick business lunches. We were spoilt for choice with the traditional French menu and eventually settled for the cream of mushroom soup, which was delicious. Creamy but still light and fragrant, we could have slurped down the lot with the complimentary garlic bread we were given. Our main courses were also lovely. The duck confit was rich, tender and moist—with the duck falling off the bone, as it should. The salmon was perfectly done, a little pink in the middle and full of flavor. Dessert was equally impressive. The crème brulee was rich and sweet with a crunchy glaze and delicious creaminess underneath. Well satisfied, we were prepared to leave the restaurant happy diners—when a server began to hassle us to provide our mobile telephone details for their mailing list. We refused several times, but were still pestered. Overall, we were impressed that this nonchalant-appearing place did such a good job. Pity that their hard sell to the already converted spoilt the experience.
