For an Asian city, Singapore has a surprising number of exquisite French restaurants. At the top-end you can expect the very best in fine-dining French cuisine, alongside impeccable presentation and immaculate service, while for the more casual evening, a range of traditional French bistro fare is also on offer.
The top spot on our list goes to L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon – the Singapore branch of the world-famous restaurant brought to us by the planet's most decorated Michelin-starred chef. While many may argue that the fine dining Joël Robuchon Restaurant is the jewel in the crown, we love the more casual L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon for the unique theatrical dining experience it offers its guests.
Across town at the Marina Bay Sands complex, Robuchon's French compatriot Masterchef Guy Savoy brings his Michelin-starred magic to our shores with more impeccable French cuisine, while homegrown restaurants Gunther's, Jaan, Absinthe and Restaurant ANDRE all hold their own in a crowded culinary market.
Les Amis group is a huge Singapore success story and their flagship restaurant Les Amis is renowned amongst the city's high society for providing a flawless gastronomic experience, with a wine list to match. Their sister restaurant Au Jardin, situated in a colonial building in the heart of the Botanic Gardens, is a good option for romance, whilst their more casual Bistro du Vin is an excellent choice for an informal evening of rustic French fare.
