Customer Testimonial

Ambience was excellent, food was great. My wife and I shared a 400g steak and they were done perfectly. We reserved online and the dessert was on promotion for online bookings. Please order the dessert, you won’t regret it!!

Oh, and the restaurant is located in an old shop house and they retained the Chinese signboards above the restaurant. So, if you see the Chinese signboards, don’t worry, that means you’re in the right place!!

Will definitely come back!

Customer Testimonial

We’ve been going here for many years. The service is nice and the food is good. I really like their pizzas: very authentic with a nice range of toppings and way better than what you’d get at any of the chain places. The starters are nice, as are their steak dishes, which are good for sharing. They also have nice desserts. There is also a discount for take-away orders.

Customer Testimonial

One of favourite izakaya place and been a regular here for years, esp for their skewers. Always done nicely, not too salty or under salty and grilled to perfection. What i like is the pace of which the dishes come out, its paced such that none of the dish will turn cold. Recommend their yuzu drink as well if you’re not into sake.

Toby’s Estate by Toby Smith, if you’ve ever spent time in Sydney, is undoubtedly no stranger. The outlet on Robertson Quay along the Singapore River that opened in 2011 is recognized for its Arabica coffee, and it also has a fast and slow bar to distinguish between different brewing techniques.

When you sit at one of Toby’s Estate’s long communal tables, interaction with other visitors is encouraged.

Key Differentiators

  • Highest quality
  • Passion for coffee, tea & chocolate
  • Quality raw materials

Customer Testimonial

A popular breakfast place, lucky to be able to get a table in a short time. The portion is reasonably generous. Customisable meal choices with various add ons. As mentioned, they are not stingy. The brioche bread was impressive for me. Soft and fluffy! Scrambled eggs are a treat and mushrooms has a wild nature taste that day. The smike salmon is done perfectly, blended well with the rest of the items, not too salty.

Ordered a single bean coffee, fragrant!

Tuesday trivia events, as well as Wednesday pint evenings at this Australian bar, Boomarang, contribute to the continual liveliness and uniqueness of the place.

The Peppered Kangaroo Loin and Chicken Parmigiano are just a few of the reasons guests return to Boomarang, where a filling meal should cost around $40. It’s difficult to explain why its name is misspelled.

Luca Iannone, the founder of D.O.P., is from Campania, Italy, where the world-famous Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP is produced, so he understands a thing or two about this silky cheese. D.O.P’s mozzarella comes from the region’s top farms, and it’s served with other Italian dishes in addition to his home-grown mozzarella.

Key Differentiators

  • Menu was created and is constantly refreshed
  • Serving only fresh food
  • Authentic Italian products

Customer Testimonial

Great hospitality and very courteous staff. We were a group of 3 friends and had a great time.

Being vegeterian, they customized some of their dishes for us. The smoked burratina was average (customized by adding mixed veg salad instead of meat – is avoidable) but the pasta we ordered was good. Tiramisu was excellent and completely responsible for my current rating.

The food is delicious, and the prices are reasonable. You might think you’re at a lovely café in France with a beautiful patio overlooking the Singapore River, as well as rustic French bistro cuisine. Escargot drowned in garlic butter, various charcuterie, and bone marrow on toast are among the starters.

For mains, the Sirloin Steak with free-flow handmade French fries and a bottle of extremely inexpensive house wine is hard to beat.

Key Differentiators

  • Showcasing classic French cuisine
  • Quality steak frites
  • Robust flavours and textures

Customer Testimonial

Nice cosy relaxing atmosphere and friendly staffs. Sirloin Steaks being the favourite, taste the best with a combination of burnt, beef fats and texture, but need some patient and skill to cut it with the knife and fork. Salmon is done just right retaining the juice and between medium and well done texture. Giant prawns is well cooked and can be mistaken for lobster meat. Wine may be restaurant priced like double but is a really nice for all drinker.

This is for all you sake enthusiasts out there. The secret Izakaya in Robertson Quay serves delectable Japanese cuisine and a wide range of sake. Its 20-year-offending sake master will provide pairing suggestions based on his experience.

Sake that can be found at a bar in your neighborhood isn’t the only type of sake available. Some of the finest sakes on the market, such as the Daichi Tokubetsu Junmai, aren’t readily available at every pub, but of course, you can find them here.

For a more chill atmosphere with pals, visit here.

Key Differentiators

  • One of the best sake restaurant bars in Singapore
  • Sake Master
  • Over 20 years of experience

This polished bar, houses over 500 Scotches expressions—90 percent of which are from boutique distilleries in Scotland such as several rarities not readily available anyplace else on Earth— thus it’s no surprise that the Quaich Bar is one where connoisseurs congregate.

As a whisky enthusiast I really like Quaich bar. They have a fantastic selection of unique blends and single barrel options that are not available anywhere else in Singapore. The staff is friendly and help you order food from other restaurants in the area if you want to. A must visit for whisky fans (experienced or not)

The wine list at this stylish restaurant in River Valley was created by oenophile owners Bruno Vaillant and Geoffrey Weckx, who have gone to great lengths to discover the finest bottles from some of the world’s greatest vineyards.

Both the warm, savory smell of freshly baked bread and delicious Spanish ham on a stick draw visitors from near and far. The tiny storefront is just as popular with locals, who line up each day at lunchtime to grab their food. Warm honey cakes with thick cream fillings are served fresh from the oven during the week; fried calamari is also a popular choice.

Key Differentiators

  • Peaceful home
  • Nested in the heart of the CBD
  • Historical Peranakan shophouse

Customer Testimonial

Food is delicious (thoroughly enjoyed the escargot and Wagyu to name but a few ), complimented by a lovely wine selection.
Ian and the team at 13% are genuinely engaging and welcoming. A place you will feel at ease with quality but no pretentiousness. Don’t be afraid to engage the team (should you want to), they’re 5 star and elevate the experience.

I’d definitely come back to sample more of the various beers stocked – Their selection is massive!

A big thank you to the IBC team and Gravy Baby team!
