One of the most well-established fine dining French restaurants, this place has been dishing out solid plates of seasonal cuisine for over 20 years.
A homegrown French fine dining establishment, this one has been our pride and joy for years, as well as a fixture on the San Pellegrino Asia’s 50 Best list and the recipient of two Michelin stars earlier in 2016. From the impeccable service to the wonderful selection of French ingredients and homemade breads to the fireworks-causing dishes like the Parmesan souffle on Brittany artichoke and the lobster mousse and of course the sublime desserts by the award-winning Cheryl Koh, this is easily one of our favorite French restaurants in town. In the good hands of executive chef Sebastien Lepinoy, hunker down for a seasonal or signature set menu fully worth the price tag.
There’s a reason why Les Amis is constantly rated one of Singapore’s finest restaurants. From the moment you step into this chi chi restaurant, the Les Amis machinery swings into action. You are greeted, seated, offered a glass of champagne, and left to peruse the tome of a wine list. At the right interval, a waiter glides up to take your wine order and hand you the food menu. Ask for recommendations and the wait staff reel off a potted history of Les Amis’s wines and food—they seriously know their stuff.
We went with their suggestions, and we were impressed as we have always been here. The carpaccio of sea bass and carpaccio of black truffles (in season) were fabulous; as was the roasted suckling pig. A warm apple tart ended the meal nicely. We have to mention the delicious red burgundy they chose—it went with everything.
This is traditional French food at its best in Singapore—you won’t find any fancy fusion stuff here. For this privilege you fork out of course, but this one is worth saving your pennies for.
